Use Rosehip Oil as Your Anti-Aging Weapon!

Roses are red, violets are blue, if anti-aging is your goal, then rosehip oil is for you….. OK that’s pretty lame. Hope nobody cringed with goosebumps listening to my amature poetry rhyme. But the benefits of rosehip oil is endless. It has been scientifically proven to improve dry skin, scarring, pigmentations, fine-lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, skin elasticity and sun damage.

Rosehip oil comes from the “hip” of the rose, which is the seed pod or fruit of the rose that occurs after the rose petals fall off. Rosehip Oil is most effective as a daily moisturiser for the face and body, leaving your skin feeling soft and hydrated all day long. It specifically targets to enhance your skins barrier function by delivering skin compatible lipids that are undetectable on the surface of the skin, providing daily protection from dehydrating environmental conditions.

How Your Skin Ages From Birth to 100

Putting genetics aside, you’ll notice a significant difference in your skin with each decade of life. Every phase has its challenges.

From the day you were born, you’re faced with thin fragile skin that is prone to eczema and other sensitivities. As you move into your teenage years, the increased oil production leads to breakouts and blemishes. Moving pass your oily acne years, you’re now faced with drier more dehydrated skin and fighting against fine lines. And as you get pass your 50s, your collagen production becomes weak and elastins become fragile leading to the challenges of wrinkles and skin sagging.

So as you can see, every phase of life has new skin challenges. The main idea however, is to maintain a consistent skin care regime using the ‘right’ skin care products for various aging phases.

AGE IS ONLY A NUMBER. You can easily slow down the clock by maintaining a healthy diet, having regular sleeping and eating patterns, controlling your stress, participating in vigorous exercise and AVOIDING THE DIRECT SUNLIGHT…… REPEAT AGAIN……STAY OUT OF THE SUN.

Lets go through the the changes in your skin from 0 – 100.

Is Petroleum Jelly Safe?

Petroleum jelly is used widely as a personal care product and is commonly known as Vaseline. I’m sure nearly every person would have had contact with some form of petroleum jelly in the past.

Its place in the beauty industry is valid due to its most effective moisturizing properties making it a very effective lip balm for dry, chapped or inflamed lips. But its effectiveness comes with a price – a $3.95 price tag, plus the price of possible carcinogic health concerns in the future.
