You Can Get Healthier and Softer Skin With Kukui Nut Oil.
The Kukui tree was brought to Hawaii by the early Polynesian settlers. The Kukui tree has spiritual significance to Hawaiians and gives them hope for renewal. Kukui nut oil has been used for hundreds of years in Hawaii but has only recently become known to the rest of the world. The people of Hawaii have used it for its moisturizing properties as well it incredible healing powers to heal. It has been used to help heal acne in Hawaii for generations and has also been found to help in diminishing acne scars.
Kukui nut oil goes well beyond healing acne as it has many more uses and is advantageous for all skin types. It is rejuvenating and soothing to the skin, providing nourishment and moisture to dry, mature, and damaged skin.
Kukui nut oil is not only easily absorbed by the skin, but it is actually able to penetrate into the deepest layers of the skin where it can heal and repair damage. It contains vitamins A, C, and E which are extremely effective antioxidants and play a key role in protecting skin cells from free radical damage as well as stimulating the production of collagen.
This oil is able to benefit an array of skin conditions including:
- Chapped skin
- Prematurely aged skin
- Dry skin
- Mature skin
Not only is kukui nut oil fantastic for the skin but it also extremely moisturizing for dry hair and scalp. It can be used as a leave in treatment which penetrates the hair shaft making it soft and shiny. It can also be used for dry scalp and problems with dandruff.
Kukui nut oil is a rejuvenating and nourishing treat for both the skin and the hair. You only need a small amount to help sooth, moisturize, and heal your problem areas.
I have discovered a fantastic skin care line that includes kukui nut oil in many of their products in addition to other phenomenal ingredients; you can take a peek here. Or if you would prefer to try pure kukui nut oil you will find very high quality oils at Mountain Rose Herbs.
