Apricot Kernel Oil is an effective, all-natural way to regulate your skin’s oil production. High in essential fatty acids and vitamins A, C, and E, this light oil is ideal for oily and normal skin types. Apricot Kernel Oil also works well on mature skin, especially on the areas around the eyes and throat, because of its tightening and astringent properties. When purchasing natural beauty oils, be sure they are cold- or expeller-pressed. I also recommend buying natural beauty oils that come in amber-colored bottles. The colored bottles help protect the precious oils from light, thus maintaining the oil’s effectiveness.
