All about Chia Seed Oil
What is Chia Seed Oil good for?
Used by the Mayans and Incans for centuries for their high protein content, Chia seeds have become popular as healthy snacks. Their high nutritional content has well documented health benefits including improving brain health, blood sugar levels, bone health, and cardiovascular function among others.
Chia seeds are just as beneficial when used externally. The oil that is extracted from these tiny seeds perfectly harnesses their nutritional value to bring serious benefits to your beauty needs. Lightweight and non-greasy, this oil is easy to fall in love with.
Chia seeds are the richest botanical source of the Omega-3 fatty acids. This ensures powerful anti-inflammatory properties which can soothe inflammation and reduce redness. It can be used easily to treat any kind of skin inflammations including eczema, rosacea and psoriasis.The Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids which are present in Chia seed oil can also help repair damaged and aging skin by strengthening the epidermis and enforcing skin cell membrane which results in an improvement in the texture and quality of your skin. These fatty acids also help build up collagen in the skin which reduces as we age resulting in improved skin elasticity, plumped up skin, and a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Chia Seed Oil for your Skin and Hair
This super oil also has the highest levels of antioxidants in the oil family. High levels of Vitamin B3 and Zinc reduce the effects of sun and environmental damage, and free radical exposure. The use of this oil topically ensures a barrier on the skin that protects the skin from damage caused by stress, and other environmental factors. Zinc also promotes the production of new cells that rebuild and renew damaged skin. It also has anti-microbial properties which not only reduces the frequency of breakouts but also reduces the natural oils that clog pores. Chia seed oil also has very high fiber content which means it can physically pull water from deeper tissues or even the surface of the skin to maintain moisture levels. Overall, the regular use of chia seed oil results in non-greasy, plumper, clearer, brighter, and rejuvenated skin that is healthy and resilient.
Not just for your skin, Chia seed oil is also rich in protein and zinc making it great for the health of your hair. Both these minerals ensure production of new hair cells to boost hair growth. Its high vitamin content also results in shiny and lustrous hair.
