With a surplus of nutrients and rich in antioxidants, the oil from the pili fruit makes a fantastic skincare ingredient that you don’t want to miss. In fact, the oil has been among the most prized by the Filipino culture for its remarkable cosmetic properties. Heralded as a new beauty skincare secret by Bloomberg (1). Here are a 3 reasons you should be using Pili Oil as part of your daily regimen.
1. Rich in Beta-Carotene
Pili oil has an incredible amount of Beta Carotene, which is the precursor to retinol—an ingredient shown to reduce fine lines and wrinkles on the skin. Pili oil has a medium-density when compared to other oils, so a lot can go a long way. You can apply it to the skin generously or use it as a spot treatment on the face, even sensitive areas around the eyes.
2. Powerful, yet gentle
So why not just use any product with retinol in it? Many of the products on the market touting retinol have the ingredient in an artificial, chemical form. Pili oil is in a natural form, which is more suitable for long-term use. As with all-natural products in general, it is important to use them consistently as part of a daily routine for a prolonged period to see best results. Pili Oil is packed with a powerful amount of Vitamin A & E helping to treat dry skin.
3. Nourishing and Moisturizing
Pili oil is packed with antioxidants and has antimicrobial properties that accelerate wound healing and help protect the skin. It also absorbs quickly and doesn’t have a greasy or oily feel, making a superb moisturizer that leaves the skin radiant for hours.
When choosing Pili Oil, be sure to select only cold-pressed, unrefined oil that is stored in dark glass as both heat and light have a tendency to break down retinol to a biologically inactive form.
To maximize the benefits of any skincare product, use them in conjunction with positive lifestyle habits such as staying hydrated, eating lots of fruits and vegetables, avoiding over eating, and limiting exposure to the sun, which is undoubtedly the primary factor in premature aging of the skin.
