Apricot Kernel Oil is good for all skins, especially prematurely aged, sensitive, inflamed or dry skin.

Sesame seed oil does have a miniscule spf rating of 4, which would not qualify it as an actual sunscreen of any value. That said, daily usage of sesame seed oil on the face and body will reduce sun exposure while slowing down the effects of aging due to the added antioxidant properties of the oil.
Sesame Hair Shine
Rub a couple of drops of the oil between both hands and smooth through already dry hair. This will act as a leave-in conditioner, shining and calming any little frizzies!
