- Helps prevent blackheads
Blackheads aren’t black because of trapped dirt, they’re actually black because the oil inside your pores has become oxidised. Aka… it’s reacted with oxygen and gone-off. Apricot oil can help stop this from happening because of its high antioxidant content. When the oil inside of your pores is protected, it doesn’t turn black and therefore not only are you protecting against future black headed spots, your pores will also look smaller and less visible. It’s a win, win.
- Rejuvenates dry, mature skin types
Dry and maturing skin types are very similar. They both need help to exfoliate. They both need brightening and renewing. They both need guidance to become healthy and youthful. Apricot oil can help benefit your skin in all of these ways because of its natural vitamin A content. While vitamin A can be drying, finding it in an apricot oil base helps counteract this side effect.
