Benefits Of Grape Seed Oil Can Help Smooth Wrinkles

The benefits of grape seed oil, contains the same antioxidants as green tea, black tea, berries and red wine.

Grape seed oil can do wonders for your skin, and can make the perfect moisturizer, no matter your skin type.

The antioxidants in the oil are called procyanidolic oligomers (PCO’s), known for their health giving properties, and are more powerful than vitamin C and vitamin E.

Grape seed oil is made by cold-pressing the grape seeds, after they have been used to make wine.  It is used in many facial and body care products, and is known for its anti aging effects.

It is very rich in vitamins, minerals and protein, and can be found in many products such as; soaps, hair care, cosmetics, facial creams, body creams, bath oils, lip balms and anything else you can think of.

Grape seed oil contains polyphenols, which are antioxidants, and definitely what you need when it comes to looking younger.

Polyphenols can help slow the process of aging, as well as having anti inflammatory and anti oxidant properties, and in turn can make it great for helping clear up acne.

BENEFITS OF GRAPE SEED OIL

Grape seed oil will help prevent pores clogging and breakouts, it is very good for oily skin as well.

This oil contains a high amount of linoleic acid, which is a fatty acid essential for the health of the skin and cell membranes.

This is the reason why it makes such a wonderful moisturizer, as it really nourishes your skin, helping keep it smooth and subtle.

The benefits of grape seed oil are known for its ability to lock in moisture, leaving your skin feeling more supple and smooth, and it does not leave a greasy feeling, which makes it ideal to use on all skin types.

The best thing about grape seed oil is its ability to be easily absorbed into the skin, instead of sitting on top of the skin.

This  helps fight free radicals and stop some of the enzymes that destroy collagen, elastin and other connective tissue.

As it is a natural oil, it will inhibit problems such as fine lines and wrinkles, caused by the loss of collagen and elastin.

Along with vitamin C, grape seed oil is able to help the skin with the production of collagen.  Make sure you are always using organic cold pressed Grape seed Oil.

There are plenty of products you can use to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines, but most of these products are only temporary.  Whereas, a natural oil like grape seed can offer a more natural and healthy solution.

As we age, our bodies produce less and less collagen, which of course gives you fine lines, wrinkles and blemishes.

It makes sense to use a natural oil like grape seed to help beat the aging process, and keep you looking younger.

Remember when looking for grape seed oil for your skin, to buy one which is organic.

The health benefits of grape seed oil make it excellent for your circulatory system, and can help relieve varicose veins and spider veins.  It is also useful in helping with a number of other conditions such as;

  • premenstrual syndrome
  • dental cavities
  • cancer
  • chronic venous insufficiency (damaged valves in the veins, carrying blood to the heart)

USES FOR GRAPE SEED OIL

It is widely used in cooking by many great chefs, and becoming more popular for the health conscious, to have a bottle in their kitchen pantry, next to the olive oil of course!

It is cholesterol free and will help lower low density lipoproteins (LDL), bad cholesterol, and raise high density lipoproteins (HDL), the good cholesterol.

Grape seed oil is best used for salad dressing or marinades, try to avoid using it for frying or deep-frying.  This oil should never be heated, as it can cause many health risks, it is a seed oil and not good for cooking.

It is also largely used as a massage oil, and gives great relief for a tired and stressed out body.

If you are considering taking a supplement, take only the best, natural, synthetic and chemical free supplements, this way you will enjoy all the benefits of grape seed oil.

Remember, when taking grape seed oil supplements, you need to take them consistently over a period of time, to reap the health benefits of grape seed oil.

    Ascorbic acid does a lot of things inside and outside the body. It boosts the immune system, protects the cells from free radical damage and it also smooths out the texture of the skin when used topically. I see to eat that i get my daily Vitamin-C from natural fruits juices plus ascorbic acid supplements.

    i was introduced to this oil by my hair dresser after a straightening disaster. Has worked wonders for my hair.

  • Fredd

    You may purchase grape seed oil at any grocery store. Even your local Wal-Mart carries it. Make sure you read how it is expressed… that is the most important part. If it is not “expressed” as noted in the blog above then it has been run through a series of chemicals to get the oil… NOT GOOD… A liter of oil at Kroger cost me about $5.50 and will last more than two months on whole body and face. Obviously much more economical, and better for you than main-stream beauty products! Try it for two weeks and you’ll be sold!

  • Laura

    I love grapeseed oil! I’ve been using it on my skin and hair for a few weeks now and I’m absolutely sold on it. It leaves my hair so smooth and strong. My skin is also really smooth and looks much better and much clearer (from blemishes) than a month ago.

    Skin care routine: wash face with Burt’s Bees cleanser, apply Thayer’s witch hazel non-alcohol toner, and massage grapeseed oil once face dries naturally.

  • Anne Schaedler

    I absolutley agree with the above post using a gentle cleanser like olive oil soap, Thayers alcohal free witch hazel as toner and grapeseed oil as an eye cream and face conditioner. it is perfect, actually is slightly antiseptic, never stings sensitive skin. Grapeseed oil is what I use to recover from skin treatsments such as chemical peels and laser. Skin loves it, saves many dollars, you dont need expensive anti aging or eye creams.

  • amanda w.

    grapeseed oil has saved my life! the skin around my eyes has been dry and tiny laugh lines have seemed more pronounced lately (according to a good friend). I’ve been using grapeseed oil for 2 weeks now and I’ll never use another overpriced eyecream again! I just wish I’d known sooner!

  • kathy

    i bought some merlot pure grape seed oil it was 7.99 for a tiny bottle is this the same thing or can i buy the cooking kind in the grocery store will it work as well?

  • admin

    Always use grapeseed extract on your skin, it is stronger in antioxidants.

  • Julie

    I totally agreed. I have been using Olive oil for years as a base then put foundation on top. My skin looks fresh and lovely. Now i have heard about grapeseed oil, I will try this instead of olive oil. It worked real well on your skin and save a ton of $$$

  • Sherry

    I’ve used olive oil on my face for at least the last few years, until I switched to grapeseed oil about 3 months ago because I wanted something lighter than olive oil to massage my husband with. YES, I am noticing a positive difference on my face, which is what brought me to this site!!! I wanted to compare grapeseed and olive oils, and learned about their other benefits. Never considered using oil on my hair, but grapeseed oil on the skin appears to be working quite a bit better than olive oil!

  • Tony

    Can I use Grape seed oil to clear up Late Adult Onset Acne. I have it mainly on the forehead and face. I am 65, I exercise, walk and take regular vitamins and water. Can I apply it straight to the forehead ? Tony

  • Marilyn

    I purchased the 16oz. Now brand bottle of grape seed oil at GNC for $8.00. I knew this was being used in cosmetics and skin care, and found it to be very expensive, and contain very little GS oil content.
    After using it for only 4 days, my skin is simply amazing. My eyes were always puffy from alergies, and now they look like they did 10 yrs ago. I can’t wait to see what difference it will make after a few weeks.
    Love it!

  • Jen

    I have been interested in natural health and beauty solutions since I was in high school, and when I saw that grape seed oil was a main ingredient in all the products I was buying I bought a bottle in the cooking aisle at the grocery store. I started using it after showers, in baths and as a facial moisturizer way back then, and I have never been without it since. It sinks in beautifully and soothes my very dry skin, no lotion compares. I recently started combining aloe vera gel enriched with polysaccharides (from lily of the desert) with my grape seed oil, and it is the most amazing primer for under makeup. I’m 34, and am constantly told I look 25. My skin is dewy and fresh every day. A bottle of good oil is about $15, but lasts 3 months! Wish I could tell everyone!

  • Nancy C.

    I am new to natural products and after reading all of your comments, I ran out to the grocery store and purchased a bottle of the grapeseed oil. I can’t wait to see the results! I have questions that I hope you can answer. How much of the oil do I use on my hair? Do I first wash my hair, put on the oil, and then wash out the oil? Or…do I put the oil on first, wait awhile, and then wash my hair thoroughly. Please advise. Thank you very much!!

  • Jen

    Nancy C.,

    I would use just a very small amount, enough to put a light sheen on your palms. Rub it through the lower two thirds of your hair after washing and conditioning but before towel drying, like a leave-in conditioner. It sinks nicely if you don’t overdo it, but it may take a few tries to get it right since thickness and texture will affect the result. My hair is thickish and naturally wavy, and with the oil I am able to let it air dry into soft happy waves. Hope this helps!

  • fatima

    This is a great note, thanx. i bought a bottle of grape seed oil for cooking. can i use it for hair and skin application as well?

    I have been using olive oil for my skin for many years and have obtained great results. I was unaware of the great benefits of the grape seed oil. In the past, I only used it for salad. But now, thanks to your article, I know better. Need to get me a bottle of it at the Health store this week. I also heard that Almond Oil is excellent for the skin.

    Kudos for such a great article!

    You can buy natural and infused grapeseed oils from home through a company called Wildtree. The availability of oils in the grocery store is very limited. Wildtree’s grapeseed oil is cold expeller pressed which is the healthiest. I joined the company a year ago, and since switching to only grapeseed oil for everything, our skin and hair glow and both my husband and my cholesterol’s are down.
    It is the best oil for cooking and baking. You can shop online at http://www.amyc.mywildtree.com. Enjoy!!
