Anti-inflammatories help reduce and even remove flare-ups that may cause red, irritated and puffy skin.

Unlike other moisturizers, grapeseed oil is free from synthetic ingredients and is packed with fatty acids and vitamin E, which help to lock in moisture. Vitamin E stimulates the production of cells that seek out and destroy germs and cancer cells. It also increases the production of B-cells that produce antibodies that neutralize bacteria.

Grape seeds have also been found to speed the healing of cuts and wounds by helping the body regenerate damaged blood vessels as well as increasing the quantity of free radicals at the wound site, which help to clear bacteria from a wound.

How to use it?

To alleviate dry skin, acne, and eczema, apply grapeseed oil on the face. This oil can also be applied to your hair to help it lock in moisture and improve shine without leaving a greasy residue. It can be applied directly to your hair to help prevent frizz and split ends.
