​How to use emu oil for skin health

Posted on

From dryness to psoriasis, skin conditions can range from annoying to debilitating. But no matter how sorry the state of your skin, you’re only one bottle of pure emu oil away from a radiant complexion. Here are five ways to improve your skin health with emu oil.

Dry and ageing skin

With its incredible penetrative qualities, emu oil sinks far down into the epidermis to deliver its moisturising goodness where your skin needs it most. And with all the potent antioxidants and omega fatty acids it contains, emu oil is ideally equipped to deeply nourish your skin, protect it from environmental damage, and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. Use emu oil moisturiser on your face morning and night, as well as a few drops of pure emu oil as a powerful night-time serum.

Burns, cuts and bites

Apply pure emu oil to sunburns, burns, cuts, scrapes, rashes and insect bites. A review published in the journal Nutrition found it to be a highly effective anti-inflammatory that reduces swelling. It’s also bacteriostatic, which means that it can help avoid infection. The linoleic acid in emu oil may even prevent scarring.

Eczema

This inflammatory condition is characterised by patches of dry, red and itchy skin.   Emu oil can help prevent eczema flare-ups by keeping the skin moisturised, and treat them by reducing inflammation. Apply the oil directly to your skin or combine it with emu oil capsules for a holistic treatment approach.

Seborrheic dermatitis

A study published in the Journal of Research in Medical Sciences found that topical application of emu oil significantly improved the itching, redness and scales associated with seborrheic dermatitis.

Psoriasis

The red, scaly and flaky patches of psoriasis are often concentrated on the scalp, elbows and knees, but they can appear anywhere on the body. Left untreated, psoriasis can cause painful arthritis. To treat psoriasis, we recommend a total emu oil regimen that includes oil applied topically and capsules taken internally.
