Acne
Grapeseed oil treats the skin on a cellular level, so it works wonders at getting rid of and preventing pesky pimples. This oil contains linoleic acid, which mimics sebum, making your skin moisturized while preventing future breakouts.
Skin Conditions
Since grapeseed contains linoleic acid, it treats the epidermal and dermal layers of the skin, which means it can treat skin disorders like eczema and rosacea. Thanks to phytosterols found in grapeseeds, it prevents inflammation and repairs the skin barrier.
Anti-Aging
Grapeseed oil contains amino acids which gives collagen production a boost, reducing the signs of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles. Linoleic acid also works to increase cell turnover, which minimizes signs of aging, and it also has polyphenols, which helps prevent premature aging.
Sun Damage
Grapeseed oil almost acts as a sunscreen, as the oil prevents the skin from absorbing UV rays. When added to SPF, it increases the value and efficacy of the formulation, so make sure you use it with sunscreen, not instead of it.
Moisturizer
Grapeseed oil is amazing for dry skin since it’s non-comedogenic, meaning it won’t clog your pores. The linoleic acid in the oil protects your skin and helps it stay moisturized, as well as keeping your skin barrier intact.
