Grapeseed oil comes from the pressed seeds of grapes. It’s known for its anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and antioxidant properties.
Because of the proven antimicrobial properties of grapeseed oil, some people use it to treat acne outbreaks. Though research into how this works is lacking, it makes sense that by attacking bacteria that can get deep into your pores and cause breakouts, grapeseed oil can make your skin clearer.
Grapeseed oil was tested, along with a number of other herbal ingredients that claim to improve your skin’s elasticity and softness. Research has shown that the herbal ingredient did improve skin’s moisture, softness, ability to bounce back. Grapeseed oil helps the vitamin E and vitamin C in your skin to be more efficient and effective at preserving your skin.
These properties, along with the high amounts of omega chain fatty acids and vitamin E contained in grapeseed oil, have made it a popular topical treatment for skin. Mixing it with essential oils or using it consistently on your face as an overnight moisturizer will probably give you the best results.
Grapeseed oil contains a powerful antioxidant ingredient called proanthocyanidin. This antioxidant may even out skin tone when it’s used on your skin consistently.
