Evening primrose oil is extracted from the evening primrose plant. It contains gamma-linolenic acid, an omega-6 fatty acid that has a positive influence on the hormone balance. It rebalances the hormone balance and improves the cell structure and elasticity of the skin. This helps to fight acne and eczema.
You can use evening primrose oil:
- Against acne, eczema and hyperpigmentation. To solve acne, you need to get to the root of the problem, which is hormone imbalance. Apply the evening primrose oil to your skin and rub in gently, paying special attention to problem areas (pimples, eczema, dry skin). If necessary, add a few drops of essential oil for an even more powerful effect.
- Against nail fracture. Rub a few drops of this oil on your fingernails and toenails every night to keep them in optimal condition.
- To make the hair stronger. Massage a few drops of evening primrose oil (mix with a few drops of lavender oil if you wish) directly on your scalp and let it soak in for 30 minutes before washing your hair.
