Sesame Oil for Skin: Benefits and How to Use It

What are the benefits of Sesame oil?

Sesame oil is a popular cooking oil, known for its rich, nutty and hearty flavor. Being a nutrient rich oil, sesame oil has been used extensively for healing purposes. Often overlooked in the beauty department, this oil may be one of the most underrated beauty secrets of our time. It is a versatile oil, with wide ranging properties that make it ideal for all skin types and skin related issues.

Sesame oil has powerful anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties. Brimming with anti-inflammatory compounds makes it ideal to be used without any carrier oil. Being a thick and sticky oil, sesame oil has the ability to penetrate deeply into the pores producing a detoxifying effect leaving skin feeling warm and fresh. Applied directly over the skin, the molecules of sesame oil attract oil-soluble toxins that can be washed away. These properties make it ideal to be used for skin conditions like eczema. It can also be helpful in reducing existing acne and pimples, and can prevent breakouts and blackheads due to its anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. 

In addition to this, sesame oil helps repair damaged skin cells. The presence of fatty acids like oleic, palmitic, stearic, and linoleic acid, makes it an ideal moisturizer, keeping skin supple and soft. High in both Vitamins A & E, which are essential nutrients for healing and skin cell repair, sesame oil is great for reducing wrinkles, fine lines, and enlarged pores. This powerful oil also contains antioxidants and sesamol, both of which fight free radicals which are the primary case of aging and skin damage. It also works by improving skin circulation, prevents oxidation of skin cells and improves skin rejuvenation. These properties also make sesame oil also works as a natural sunscreen. The presence of antioxidants prevents environmental particles from oxidizing skill cells ensuring no sun damage and healthy skin.  Choked full of minerals like zinc, copper, calcium, magnesium, and manganese, sesame oil can repair scar tissue, heal the skin and regenerate new skin cells.
