One of the most beneficial oils for the skin and hair comes from the simple sunflower. Not only is it brimming with helpful vitamins and minerals, this luscious oil also moisturizes the skin and encourages hair growth. Here’s how to reap the benefits of sunflower oil!
Benefits for Skin
Because sunflower oil is jam packed with vitamins A, C, D and E as well as potassium, calcium and other minerals, it is a fabulous moisturizer for the skin. It acts as a natural sunscreen and helps to prevent the skin from losing moisture. Sunflower oil also aids in wrinkle reduction and eliminates acne-causing bacteria, while helping to treat existing acne (and maskne) and other skin inflammation.

Benefits for Hair
Did you know sunflower oil assists in the prevention of thinning hair? It’s true! It acts as a kind of food source for the hair and scalp, helping to retain moisture. If you’ve got a case of the frizzies, give sunflower oil a try. Not only does it calm down dry hair and make it more manageable, sunflower oil also behaves like an SPF and protects hair from sun damage.
How to Use Sunflower Oil
To start seeing how sunflower oil can benefit your skin, apply a thin layer after you shower and pat skin dry. But be careful when applying oil in the shower – it can cause you to slip and slide.
For hair it’s as simple as applying a small amount (about the size of a quarter) of sunflower oil to your hair and combing it through to the ends. Then wrap a warm towel (put it in the dryer for a few minutes) around your hair for about an hour, allowing the oil to penetrate the hair follicles and moisturize the scalp. Then shampoo and condition as usual.
