Sunflower oil prevents UV ray damage, heals damaged skin and also fights against post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation. Those with dark spots left behind by acne will benefit from regular use of sunflower seed oil.
💜 A 2012 study compared olive oil and sunflower seed oil, topical treatment. Olive oil significantly damages the skin barrier, and therefore has the potential to promote the development of, and exacerbate existing, atopic dermatitis. Sunflower seed oil on the other hand significantly improved skin texture and dark spots.
