OILS FOR HAIR & SKIN: What You Need To Know


With winter comes dry skin, hair, scalp (we could go on). So where to turn to for much-needed moisture? Try natural oils! The hair pros at Luster Products, makers of the Luster’s Pink Natural Oils line, give us the intel on the rich, natural oils that will help nourish, moisturize, sooth and protect skin and hair:

APRICOT OIL is rich in fatty acids, vitamins A, C and E and linoleic acid that help promote healthy looking skin and hair. Unlike some oils that remain on the surface, this lightweight oil is readily absorbed without leaving a greasy residue.

TEA TREE OIL has been known to help relieve the skin due to its inherent antiseptic properties. This healing oil may be used to help sooth dry and irritated skin and scalp.

CASTOR OIL is rich in Omega 6 fatty acids to help promote hair growth for head, eyebrows and eyelashes. It may also be used as an overnight treatment for dry hair, scalp, hands and feet.

JOJOBA & GRAPESEED OIL is a nourishing and restorative natural oil blend designed to help revitalize the skin, scalp and nails while helping to promote healthy hair growth. Jojoba oil is close to natural sebum and is an excellent moisturizer while the grapeseed oil contains nearly all the important nutrients for hair to grow healthy.
