Benefits of using Omega-rich facial oils in your beauty routine

Glowing skin starts from within and fatty acids like Omega-3 are considered a key part of a healthy diet and skin care routine.

Discover why Omega-3 and Omega-6 are so important for good skin health and how using an Omega-rich facial oil or body oil can give your skin glow a natural boost.

Green People uses organic Omega-rich plant oils such as Rosehip to create luxurious facial oils packed with goodness for radiant skin. Shop our natural and organic facial oils now.

What are the skin benefits of Omega-rich oils?

Omega-3 and Omega-6 are essential fatty acids that are needed for healthy skin.

Considered ‘good fats’, Omegas include Omega-6 and Omega-3, a fatty acid that’s soothing to the skin and especially useful for renewing and repairing the skin barrier.

The skin benefits of Omega-rich oils include:

  • Strengthening the surface of your skin
  • Promoting a smoother complexion
  • Sealing in moisture for hydrated, plump skin
  • Soothing inflammation
  • Being beneficial for all skin types

What are some Omega-rich plant oils?

Omega-3 & Omega-6 are essential fatty acids, and this means that the body cannot produce them naturally.

Whilst you can’t produce your own Omegas, you can support good skin health by eating a balanced diet and by choosing to use skin care that’s made with plant oils that are naturally rich in Omega-3&6.

Here are some of the Omega-rich plant oils that we use to make our organic facial oils, body oils and moisturisers:

  • Blackcurrant Oil is rich in Omega-3&6 essential fatty acids and helps to firm skin by boosting elasticity
  • Rosehip Oil has repairing, rejuvenating properties and is a good source of Omega 7&9 fatty acids
  • Perilla Oil contains high level Omega-3 fatty acids and helps skin to maintain moisture
  • Evening Primrose Oil is rich in Gamma-linolenic acid, a type of Omega-6 fatty acid. It supports the collagen and elastin to encourage a healthy skin structure
  • Hemp Seed Oil is an excellent moisturiser and is rich in Omega-3&6 essential fatty acids that keep skin soft and supple
  • Safflower Seed Oil is an emollient that’s one of the best sources of skin-plumping Omega-6 Linoleic acid

My top tip is to warm the oil in the palms of your hands and then gently tap it into the face, neck and decolletage.” Charlotte Vøhtz, founder of Green People.

Another great benefit of our Age Defy+ Cell Enrich Facial Oil is that it has many uses.

When used as the last layer of your skin routine, Age Defy+ Cell Enrich Facial Oil provides a ‘fix-in place’ action that helps to seal in hydration so that skin stays soft and flake-free for longer.

This is especially helpful for those who have dry or mature skin and makes Age Defy+ Cell Enrich Facial Oil a great omega facial oil to have to use during skin-drying cold weather months.
