Aging is a parallel component of life on earth. Anything and everything that has life is bound to age. For us, as humans, aging is far more than just being a fact about our existence. It is irreparable damage to worry about. Why? Because although none of us want to age and look wrinkled, there is nothing we can do about it.
Nature, on the other hand, has been kind enough to solve almost all our problems, ever since life forms have marked their presence on earth. One such kindness bestowed by Mother Nature is, the variety of essential oils.
Herein, we will discuss 5 of the most vital essential oils that promote skin tightening and hence, prevent aging.
5. Frankincense Oil
It is the most valuable and tranquil oil amongst all. It protects the skin cells and encourages new cell growth. This oil increases skin elasticity and is great to use around the eye area to tighten up the skin.
The molecular structure of Frankincense oil is very small to penetrate into the skin, therefore it regenerates the cells and replaces the old dead cells with the new ones.
It also keeps the skin oxygenated and more oxygenated the skin is, more elastic it will be.
To benefit from this oil, first, exfoliate the skin with a hot towel to open the pores. Mix the oil with any of the carrier oils of your choice, let us say olive oil. Now, gently dab the mixture on your face before going to bed. Make sure not to apply the oil without diluting.

The Holy Bible states that Myrrh oil was one of the three oils that the three wise men brought to the baby Jesus. Apart from its vast historic importance, Myrrh oil is also one of the most sought after essential oils for skin.
Myrhh essential oil is used for oxygenating the body tissues which further help in skin-soothing. It also treats chapped skin, cracked skin and wrinkles thereby giving you a glowing skin tone by improving skin flexibility.
