Whether you’re using it topically or adding it to your smoothies to nourish your skin from the inside out, macadamia oil provides a multitude of beauty-boosting benefits. Which is why macadamia oil is a new natural beauty ingredient trend.
Macadamia oil is packed with antioxidants and includes both Palmitoleic and linoleic fatty acids. In simple terms these acids mimic your skin’s natural oils helping to delay visible signs of aging and promote elasticity and firmness. All while boosting radiance and hydration. Macadamia oil is also great for nourishing your hair as well.

DIY natural beauty
macadamia hot oil hair treatment
We love a little DIY natural beauty action here Sporteluxe HQ. And plain macadamia oil (the type you can get for cooking from the supermarket) is perfect for a hot oil hair treatment. Want to give it a try? Heat the oil in a microwave safe cup or bowl for 10 seconds. Massage straight into dry hair and your scalp (testing the temperature before applying it). Following this, tie your hair back in a towel for 20 minutes. Shampoo your hair twice and apply a light conditioner. Repeat weekly for shiny, healthy hair!
