When it comes to skin care, there are very few products worth magic, but MONAT Rejuveniqe Oil ($99) is just that. What makes the product a bestseller is that it’s designed to balance, rejuvenate, and treat every inch of the body —from the top of your head to the bottom of your heels.
This luxurious oil is so sought after because of its superstar ingredient list, which is stacked with the purest forms of antioxidants, oils, beta-carotene, and omega-3 fatty acids. This innovative formula is designed to hydrate hair and skin by replenishing any much-need nourishment. Let’s break it down.
To call out just a few of the powerhouse actives on the list, we’ll start with moringa oil. Packed with vitamins A, E, and C and omegas 3, 6, and 9, the oil is beloved for its ability to treat hyperpigmentation and discoloration. “In vitro studies have shown that moringa can be used as an antioxidant and the extract of the moringa leaves can absorb UV light,” Kavita Mariwalla, MD, a board-certified dermatologist based in New York, previously told Well + Good. “There is also some interesting data to show that extracts from moringa seed, leaf, and pulp can speed wound healing and improve the appearance of scars.”
Another standout ingredient in this extra nourishing formulation is carrot seed oil. As Kelly Jones, RD previously told Well + Good, this ancient antioxidant “has potential to be used for brightening and moisturizing” when diluted with other carrier oils. It’s also known to help with inflammation and anti-fungal treatments.
To up its anti-inflammatory prowess, the elixir also contains coconut oil, which dermatologists frequently turn to for its barrier-fortifying abilities. “Coconut oil is a natural anti-inflammatory, and full of fatty acids that help improve the skin barrier,” board-certified dermatologist Rachel Nazarian, MD told Well+Good.
This powerhouse combination can deliver serious benefits to both the skin and hair, which is what makes this multi-purpose oil such a worthy investment. Below, three ways you can use it all over.
1. Intensive hair hydrating treatment
If your hair is feeling dry and flaky post-winter, use this oil as a mask to give your hair an extra drink of hydration. Apply a generous amount to damp hair and scalp and then wrap your head with a warm towel. Wait 30 minutes, then rinse for hair that feels nourished and looks shiny.
2. Anti-frizz leave-in finishing treatment
To get that post-blowout glow, apply a small out of this elixir after styling your hair with hot tools. This will prevent breakage, protect hair strands, and add a glossy finish that holds texture throughout the day.
3. Facial moisturizer
Ahead of your daily moisturizer, apply the elixir to any problem areas on your face in the morning and at night. It’s designed to hydrate, protect, and improve fine lines, wrinkles, and discoloration.
