Have you heard about amaranth oil? Today oib I’m going to tell you about amaranth oil its origin, its benefits and techniques to use it in your daily life. Nice right? 🙂
Amaranth oil is extracted from the seed of amaranth flowering plant. It is a prehistoric plant and is being cultivated from ancient times. The oil has many essential nutrients which went carefully used can be extremely beneficial for your skin. Not only for skin is also used in food items and medicines and various religious ceremonies in Asian countries. We already talked about how rice powder, shikakai leaf or cinnamon are locally sourced here and used in skincare treatment.
But amaranth oil is more famous for its beauty perks than its uses in food. The oil is rich in nutrients and can give you a clean and refreshing look. Amaranth oil is beneficial for your skin not only by applying it on your body but also by consuming. You can use the amaranth leaves in salads and oil in various food products. Amaranth oil will help you to beautify your skin and hair from inside out. But I usually prefer it to use externally and it definitely shows immediate results.
Ways to use amaranth oil:
1. Applying directly on your skin:
You can apply and oil directly on your skin, try twice a day right out the shower in the morning and before bedtime in the evening. Take about 2 to 3 drops of amaranth oil in your palm and slowly apply it on your face, hands, legs and other parts of the body. Gently massage it on your body and allow the oil to seep into your skin.
Result: The oil oxidizes your skin and gives a very refreshing look, it also helps to get rid of dead skin cells.
