​The benefits of sesame oil



The benefits of sesame oil are very numerous, here they are below:

The benefits of sesame oil as an anti-aging treatment

As I mentioned above, sesame oil contains many natural antioxidants: vitamin E, sesamolin, sesamin, selenium. It is thus an oil that will be perfect to apply on mature skin, but also on other skin types to prevent the appearance of the effects of aging. Because the antioxidants will slow down the aging of the skin by blocking the free radicals, responsible for the appearance of spots on the skin and its relaxation.

The benefits of sesame oil for massage

Sesame oil is also an oil that will be perfect for performing massages, for two reasons. Not only is it an oil that is very soft, and therefore very pleasant to the touch for the massager, and provides a good sensation to the person being massaged. But in addition it penetrates very well into the skin, which allows it to be deeply hydrated.


The benefits of sesame oil to moisturize the skin, hair and beard hair

Like most vegetable oils, sesame oil is recognized for its nourishing benefits and to maintain hydration. Thus, it is an oil that will allow the skin, hair and beard hair to protect itself more effectively from external aggressions.

The benefits of sesame oil as an anti-dandruff treatment

The benefits of sesame oil are known to act effectively on flaking and dry skin. Desquamation is the loss of the superficial layers of the epidermis, which is why we have dry dandruff. Moreover, many men seek to make disappear dandruff in the beard or in the hair. Flaking is simply related to the fact that the skin is very dry. Thus, by applying sesame oil alone or mixed, you will prevent the appearance of dandruff in the beard and in the hair.

Sesame oil to fight hair loss

And I could also add against the fall of beard hair too! Not only does sesame oil moisturize the hair (which will make it stronger, healthier), but it also promotes blood micro-circulation in the scalp. And therefore guarantees the good health of the scalp.

The benefits of sesame oil for the beard

Since sesame oil helps nourish the skin, it will have a direct impact on beard hair. Because well-hydrated skin is also a well-hydrated hair follicle. The hair takes root in the hair follicle. Thus, the hair will also be well hydrated. Which implies a stronger, more robust and thicker coat. Your beard will therefore be fuller. But it also implies a softer coat. Sesame oil is therefore an excellent carrier oil for softening an itchy beard .

How to use sesame oil?

Sesame oil can be used alone on the skin or mixed with other oils or cosmetic products (day creams, night creams, shampoos, conditioners, hair masks, etc.).

In hair care, you can directly put sesame oil and do a little scalp massage. Do not hesitate to apply sesame oil well over the entire length of your hair, to the ends. You can do the same as a beard mask.
