five fabulous uses for grapeseed oil in skin & body care

1. Use to treat blemishes
I may be 33, but a blemish still pops up every now and then- usually when I am stressed out or traveling. I mix up a 1/2 oz grapeseed oil with 10 drops tea tree oil (easily available at or in a health or drug store) and take it in my carry on. A few dabs with a cotton swab directly on the blemish 2x a day does wonders! The cotton swab is key because it prevents the transfer of bacteria from your finger tips to other areas of the skin, which causes blemishes to spread.

2. Use as a makeup remover
Grapeseed oil effectively removes even the most stubborn eye makeup and helps to treat your skin at the same time with it's potent antioxidants and vitamins. It performs double duty tasks by targeting fine lines and wrinkles with powerful polyphenols while removing makeup.

3. Use as a massage oil
Massage therapists love grapeseed oil for it's quick absorption and compatibility with all skin types from sensitive to oily.

4. Use to moisturize extremely sensitive skin
100% pure grapeseed oil is a perfect choice for people with super sensitive skin*. Our cold expeller pressed oil is not exposed to any chemicals like solvent extracted (cheaper and less effective) grape seed oils. It also does not contain any preservatives, essential oils or additional ingredients. This makes it an ideal choice for moisturizing if you have allergies and/or reactions to lotions which need preservatives so they do not grow bacteria. Be very wary of any lotion that claims it is "preservative free" unless you are keeping it in the fridge between applications and using it up in 1-2 weeks. The best rule of thumb for extremely sensitive skin is to stick to products with a small ingredient list that explain how the ingredient was formed. 100% pure grapeseed oil has just 1 ingredient!

5. Use in your bath
Add 100% pure grapeseed oil to a warm drawn bath to moisturize as you soak and relax. Make a cup of tea or sip on some cucumber water. You'll hop out hydrated and relaxed!

* I am reminded of this use when I get calls and emails from happy customers saying they have tried a multitude "sensitive skin" products with poor results. Customers have shared their personal stories including visiting a dermatologist who recommended cold expeller pressed grape seed oil for moisturizing extremely sensitive skin.
