Uses For Rosehip OIl

A perfectly formed and pristinely petaled rose has the ability to captivate all of our senses, so it’s no surprise that the rosehip oil harvested from rose bush seeds could help you unlock the natural beauty in your skin. Rosehip oil is naturally full of vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids which can boost your skincare game in a number of ways.

1 – Maintain Your Skin’s Natural Beauty


Rosehip oil is able to intensely and instantly moisturise your skin with its fatty acids. The linoleic acid in rosehip oil is not only able to achieve high levels of hydration but also helps lock in moisture. Use rosehip oil morning and night in place of your regular moisturiser to see results. The natural product easily absorbed into your skin without leaving an oily residue.

Rosehip oil’s astringency will also help to tighten your pores and brighten your skin, leading to an overall smoother complexion. For an extra brightening boost, add rosehip oil to baking soda for a natural exfoliant.

We also know how important it is to properly remove makeup at night to allow the skin to rest and rejuvenate. Rosehip oil is a gentle and natural makeup remover which leaves your skin moisturised ready for bed.

2 – Rosehip Oil Naturally Repairs Your Skin


The anti-inflammatory fatty acids and vitamins A and C naturally help rosehip oil to treat signs of ageing such as pigmentation, dehydration and wrinkles. Lightening the dark spots caused by sun damage on your face, hands, arms and décolletage will have a noticeable effect on your overall skin tone. Not only can rosehip oil undo the oxidative damage on your skin, but it can also help prevent and protect you from further damage by rebuilding collagen.

If you have red blotches, scars or stretch marks rosehip oil can be applied to even skin tone and pigmentation.

3 – Dermatological Skin Conditions


If you suffer from inflammatory skin conditions such as rosacea, psoriasis, eczema or dermatitis, the polyphenols and anthocyanin in rosehip oil can help calm the effects of these. Where your skin is red, itchy or flaking, rosehip oil can bring natural relief. The anti-microbial properties of rosehip oil make it ideal for naturally and gently treating acne.

One natural, vegan, skincare ingredient you can rely on to be nourishing rather than damaging is Mica. But what is Mica? Where does it come from? And how can we use it to achieve better, brighter skin?

Over-use of synthetic and processed products can affect our health and wellbeing. Many people are aware of the benefits of eating organic food that hasn't been treated with harsh pesticides, but did you know that it's equally as important to make sure that the products you put on your body are just as healthy as the food you put into it?

Don't ask me why, but I started searching the health benefits of singing in the shower and it turns out there are quite a few. So here are our favourite reasons to sing in the shower

First of all we want to stress that you DO NOT have to be a good singer, goodness knows I’m not.

 

Singing makes you happy by releasing endorphins - put on a few songs you love, even if you’re not in the mood, your favourite songs should get you singing and get you pumped for the day. Or help you relax at the end of a long day.
