Borage Seed Oil for Dry/Itchy/Dehydrated/Wrinkled Skin
Borage Seed Oil, also known as Starflower is rich in Omega 6 Essential Fatty Acids (Boarge Oil is the richest source of Gamma Linolenic Acids/GLAs). Borage Oil is very Nourishing and moisturizing Oil which penetrates well but it might leave your skin feeling a bit oily that is the reason why this oil is suitable for people with Dry/Dehydrated, Mature Skin which needs deep moisturization. Its a wonderful remedy for eczema too. Since Borage Oil is a little heavy its usually added at 10%-20% to other Lighter Carrier Oils for best result. It is pale yellow in color and is expensive compared to other Carrier Oils. If you have Dry/Dehydrated/Mature Skin, Borage Oil can do wonders for you. It restores and repairs damaged skin tissues and reduces Fine Lines and Wrinkles. I love to use Borage Oil on my face , at least once a week. I don’t mind using it neat because my skin easily drinks it up in winter:)
