Jessica Simpson is on a mission traveling the globe in her new show “The Price of Beauty”. She visits exotic locales in search of the latest natural beauty treatments and trends. In Hawaii, local women use natural oils to help keep their skin moist from the constant exposure of the hawaiian sun. Most people stay away from natural oils thinking they will be too oily on the skin but, you’d be surprised!
Kukui oil is packed with natural health benefits such as vitamin E and contains high levels of the essential fatty acids such as linoleic and alpha-linolenic. Kukui oil serves as a natural source for dry skin, soothing healing sunburns, soften of cuticles and smoothing untamed feet. The oil is fast absorbent leaving your skin smooth and soft not greasy or oily but, leaving a healthy glow. This also alleviates the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, relives psoriasis and eczema skin conditions. You will see a variety of kukui oils mixed in naturally made products such as handmade soaps, body oils, shampoos and facial moisturizers.
Another highly lauric oil is “babassu oil” which was recently used in the The Body Shop new “Spa Wisdom” line. So what is babassu oil? Babassu oil is similar to coconut oil which is a soft solid in room temperature and melts at a 76-degree temperature. It also has glowing skin benefits such as soften and moisturizing of the skin.
