Sunflower Oil

Sunflower oil is extracted from sunflower plant. Other than cooking, this oil is highly beneficial for skin having softening and moisturizing action as it maintains the moisture balance of the skin. Sunflower oil contains Vitamin A, D and especially E. It is even rich in essential fatty acids. The sunflower oil can be used on any skin type. This oil is the ultimate for utilizing in skin care products, bath oils as well as hair conditioner.

Here is a recipe that I've heard which is quite helpful for maintaining the moisture balance of the skin. It goes like this: add one-eighth cup of finely ground sunflower seed meal with equal amount of applesauce. Make a paste out of the ingredients and apply it softly in circular motion into the skin. Leave it for 10 minutes and then rinse the skin properly with warm water and pat dry gently.

    Hey blogger
    Thanks for your posting, especially for the recipe which seems to be quite interesting, as because sunflower oil is multipurpose oil. It is even used as primary oil in lotion, salt scrub, and bath oil and even in massage oil, because it is helpful for any type of skin.

    Beside as excellent cooking oil it has natural taste. There are three types of sunflower oil, like Linoleic, High-oleic, and NuSun. Sunflower oil can help to reduce cholesterol so it’s very healthy to eat.
