One of the main reasons I like researching natural beauty products such as natural oils is that I suffer with dry skin and have been battling with eczema all my life. I have tried so many oils and creams that have been recommended by various friends. But, I found what worked for them did not work for me. We are not all made the same. However, this does not stop me from trying. Also, I suffered with premature aging due to having dry skin. That being said, I have had success using some of the oils mentioned for fine lines and wrinkles and for bringing my eczema under control.

2. Monoi Oil
This is the “sacred” oil of the Polynesians and it has roots back to the native Maori tribe, the indigenous people of New Zealand.

This oil is made by soaking the blooms of the Tahitian Monoi plant in coconut oil.
Monoi oil works for all skin types can offers skin repairing properties with no greasy residue. Read labels carefully and be sure that you are getting the real thing.

Keratin is a natural protein found in healthy hair, skin, even your teeth. This oil is great for women with coarse, frizzy, or dull hair. Keratin oil will make your hair manageable, sleek, and shiny. If you have hair that has been severely damaged by bleaching, coloring, over processing, or sun damage, this is the oil you need to use!
You can also rub keratin oil into your clean, dry nails to stop hangnails and make them longer and stronger almost before your eyes! Perfect for those with weak nails due to the application of artificial nails.
4. Tamanu Oil (Foraha Oil)
Tamanu oil is extremely soothing and can give tremendous relief from numerous skin irritations, such as sunburns, inflammation, eczema, and rashes. This oil contains powerful compounds that are proven to both restore as well as regenerate skin tissue. This oil is perfect for breakouts as it has antimicrobial compounds and plenty of antioxidants.
Mel, from Natural Medicine Box – “I used this oil a couple of years ago when I had a particularly bad break out. It took a while to get my eczema under control, approximately two months. But, my skin was the best it had been for years. The downside however, is the smell. It is best to use it for nighttime only”
5. Moringa Oil
This is a fairly new oil to Americans but it’s been used by the ancient Egyptians and Hindus since about 2000 BC! This oil has a very high level of antioxidants, which protects you skin from premature aging and sun damage. Moringa oil also has a fatty acid profile that can seriously fight the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, lightens your skin tone, and will deeply moisturize your skin. This is perhaps the perfect oil for those with dry skin and those with more mature skin.
