grapeseed oil

Lighter than coconut and olive oils, grapeseed oil is perfect for those new to using facial oils or those with oily skin.

Grapeseed oil comes from the seeds of various wine grapes and is high in omega-6 fatty acids, which help stimulate skin growth and repair. Grapeseed oil is also chock-full of antioxidants, which can help protect skin from free radicals and keep your complexion looking supple and youthful.

In addition to using grapeseed oil as a nighttime treatment, when used in small amounts, it’s light enough for daytime use. Be sure to glide it on well before you apply makeup (allowing it enough time to soak into your skin), and keep your look natural so your skin’s radiance can shine through.

Grapeseed oil is also great for removing makeup at the end of the day. It’s tough enough to break down pesky waterproof mascara, but gentle enough to use daily on the sensitive eye area. After removing makeup, use a warm, damp cloth to wipe away excess dirty oil before applying another thin layer to your skin before bed.

Find grapeseed oil near the other cooking oils at your local market, or search online for other 100 percent pure grapeseed oil options for less than $2 per fluid ounce.
