Frankincense is a powerful antioxidant which is why it has anti aging properties. Antioxidants help to combat free radicals which are highly reactive molecules with unpaired electrons. As the free radicals move around the body looking for an electron to pair with, it can damage your DNA which accelerates the aging process. Also, antioxidants help to slow down and halt the damage caused by free radicals. This helps with the rejuvenation of the skin.
Frankincense benefits include the ability to strengthen skin and improve its tone, elasticity, defense mechanisms against bacteria or blemishes, and appearance as someone ages. It may help tone and lift skin, reduce the appearance of scars and acne and heals wounds. It may also be beneficial for fading of surgery scars and for healing dry or cracked skin.
According to a review published in the Journal of Traditional and Complementary Medicine, frankincense oil reduces redness and skin irritation, while also producing a more even skin tone. Studies suggest that it's the 'pentacyclic triterpene' (steroid like) structure of frankincense oil that contributes to its soothing effect on irritated skin.
Sandalwood is rich in antioxidants and helps prevent wrinkle formations as it fights the damage that is caused by free radicals. Sandalwood oil contains antioxidants that help maintain the buoyancy and structure of the skin cells. Sandalwood also helps with inflammation, eczema, psoriasis and evens skin tone.
