Spring season means beautiful blooms, warmer weather and longer days. For some, it’s a whirlpool of allergy triggers, skin irritations and flare ups. Not to mention runny noses and puffy eyes! For those of us who fall into the latter category – emu oil products may be the one thing you need in your Spring arsenal.
Emu oil has been known to treat dry and itchy skin, sun burn, rashes, skin irritations and acne. It is even used to treat harsher skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema and rosacea.
Why? For starters, emu oil contains Vitamin A – a powerful antioxidant that plays a critical role in maintaining healthy skin and reducing inflammation. (Axe, 2016)
Here’s more reasons why you should try emu oil for your skin and immune system…
Reasons why you should try emu oil skincare
#1 – Since it contains fat lipids similar to those found in the top layer of human skin, emu oil is easily absorbed into the skin and penetrates deep within the surface.
#2 – Emu oil is known to be hypoallergenic because its biological makeup is very similar to that of human skin. It’s also non-comedogenic, meaning it does not clog the pores or irritate the skin.
#3 – Studies show it effectively retains moisture longer than mineral-based skincare and therefore soothes particularly sensitive skin.
#4 – Further studies show it improves redness, itching and scales associated with chronic skin inflammation.
Reasons why you should try emu oil to boost your immune system
#1 – The Vitamin A found in emu oil also boosts the immune system, helping fight conditions like the common cold, cough or flu (Axe, 2016).
#2 – Emu oil may be effective for your overall health, especially when you have allergy flare ups or a cold. It can be placed within or around the nose to sooth soreness and congestion caused from blowing your nose frequently.
#3 – Allergy flare ups, such as respiratory allergies (i.e. Asthma) are inflammatory in nature, so applying emu oil on your chest, throat and sinuses may provide relief.
