Grape Seed Oil

Grape seed oil has a wide range of uses and purposes. Many people are familiar with grape seed oil because it is used in face masks. This oil absorbs into the skin instead of leaving an oily residue and helps to moisturize and reduce lines around the eyes. Because of this, many people mix it in with their facemask.

To make your own grape seed oil face mask you will need:

  • 1 ½ cups brown sugar
  • ¼ cup grape seed oil
  • ¼ cup almond oil

Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl. You can add a few drops of essential oil if you want, because grape seed oil does not have a strong scent. Apply some of the mixture on your face and let it sit for 15 minutes. Store the rest of the ingredients in a closable jar for up to 6 months.
