We welcome fall with the breathtaking sight of leaves changing their color from green to red, orange, yellow, and brown. Your skin also experiences changes as the season transitions to colder temperatures and lower humidity.
The changing of weather can trigger some skin concerns. It may provoke allergies or make existing skin conditions worse.

Wrinkles are an inevitable part of the aging process. Wrinkles on the face, neck, hands, and arms are the most noticeable because these areas are frequently exposed to damaging external factors like sun damage. Other environmental factors such as toxins, pollution and lifestyle also contribute to skin aging.

Carrier oils are acquired from seeds, kernels, and nuts of plants. They are usually odorless or very lightly scented. They have skin nourishing properties and can be applied to the skin alone or can be mixed with essential oils for additional beautifying skin benefits!
Unlike essential oils, carrier oils are not volatile. This makes them ideal for dilution and application. Carrier oils have various textures, colors, thickness, and nutritional compositions.
In order to be used for aromatherapy, carrier oils should be derived using the cold pressing method. Cold pressing is a process wherein the oil is extracted by crushing the plants. It is said that when heat is used to extract the oil, nutrients are damaged.
The most apparent signs of aging are changes in the skin and hair. As someone gets older, pigmentation, wrinkles, dryness, and sagging skin becomes more evident. Graying and thinning of the hair is also inevitable. These changes in the skin and the hair are influenced by several factors, such as genetic makeup, nutrition, and environmental factors.
