Mmmm- macadamia nuts! Anyone who’s snacked on a handful of these tasty nuts from the Macadamia ternifolia tree loves their rich flavor and the healthy energy boost that comes with it. More women are discovering the benefits of this lightly-scented amber oil for skincare. Part of macadamia nut oil’s ‘secret of success’ is in its healthy blend of fatty acids that heal and balance dry, damaged or troubled skin.
If you’ve avoided using moisturizers for fear of clogging pores with yet more oil, here’s some good news: macadamia nut oil has a deserved reputation for being non-comedogenic (non-clogging). Unlike many other products using mineral or other synthetic oils, it actually helps balance the skin’s natural oil production. Another plus is that macadamia nut oil is easily absorbed without leaving a greasy residue while keeping skin soft and supple.
“But wait– there’s more!” Macadamia oil boosts a substance called ‘squalene’, which is naturally present in skin but declines with age. As a result, the good fatty acids and squalene in macadamia nut oil help reduce oxidative stress, which helps diminish appearance of age spots, reduce wrinkles from the effects of time and environment, as well as heal chapped lips and reduce inflammation in skin.
Of course, you’d expect to find oil as versatile as macadamia ternifolia oil in a quality skincare, such as the Calm | Youth Moisturizer – and you’d be right. Making this moisturizer and other Derma9 products part of your daily routine can help give you the healthy, youthful skin you’ve been looking for.
