SPOTLIGHT ON ROSEHIP
At this time of year our skin begins to need more protection from the elements, rosehip oil has the answer and as if by magic the countryside is full of rosehips.
It's 'hip' to know just what your skin needs
Rosehip oil is quickly absorbed into the skin, replenishing moisture and creating a protective barrier on the skin to help prevent dehydration which is just what you need in the colder windier weather.
Rosehip oil can be used to support a number of skin conditions:
Dermatitis, eczema, sunburn, brittle nails, to minimise fine lines and wrinkles and is frequently used to heal scarring which includes scars left by spots, rosehip oil preserves the elasticity and softness of the skin.
Rosehip oil comes from the fruit of the wild rose plant, naturally rich in essential fatty acids Omega 3, 6, and 9. Rosehip is also high in trans-retinoic acid, which moisturises and protects the skin, all these potent nutrients and extracts are ideal for the winter months, if you already use a serum or oil based makeup remover you could customise it for winter by adding in some rosehip oil.
Because of its natural constituents that make it beautifully moisturising I formulated rosehip oil into WILD REGENERATION NOURISHING BODY BALM for dry/combination skin. It also includes arctic cranberry and palmarosa leaf extract - click on the link to read more.
This balm is multiuse and can be used as a make-up remover, a post yoga balm for aching muscles or as a moisturising body oil. Silky, light and easily absorbed a little goes a long way, rosehip oil makes this the perfect treat to keep the balance of moisture in your skin for softness all winter long.
