Fight wrinkles the natural way, without resorting to Botox injections
These days, drinking raw milk is now considered dangerous and weird, but getting a lot of Botox injections to fight wrinkles just for the appearance of younger looking skin seems to be more acceptable. Fortunately, there are natural ways to combat the signs of aging without having to get risky procedures.
This facial moisturizer made from rosehip seed oil is a powerful anti-wrinkle solution that is way much better than Botox injections!
Whether you are preventing wrinkles or trying to make them disappear, rosehip oil is simply the best
It is the many one-of-a-kind properties of rosehip seed oil that make it an excellent choice for treating damaged or aged skin.
Penetrates Skin – Rosehip seed oil has astringent properties and is regarded as a “dry oil,” meaning it is quickly absorbed into the skin, unlike other oils for mature skin. This enables the essential fatty acids in the oil to truly penetrate the skin and soothe it.
Boosts Collagen Production – Rosehip seed oil promotes the manufacturing of collagen in the skin since it contains vitamin A. Other facial moisturizers that have collagen added to them may claim to have anti-aging properties, but they have one problem: when applied directly to the skin (topically), collagen molecules are too big to be absorbed by the skin.
Nourishes and Regenerates – Since it nourishes the skin with its vitamin E, C and A, rosehip seed oil strengthens the skin and keeps it supple as well. It also has a high concentration of alpha-linoleic and linoleic acids, which support the regeneration of cells and keeps the skin looking young.
Soothes Skin and Scars – A study conducted in 2015 and published in the Journal of Cosmetics demonstrated that rosehip seed reduces scarring after surgery since it is effective at healing wounds. The same study claimed that rosehip seed oil may also minimize the impact of photo-aging that happens due to sun exposure because it is rich in vitamin A (retinol).
When choosing rosehip seed oil, the color is more important than you think
Generally, rosehip seed oil that is grown conventionally is pale yellow and lacks beneficial vitamins C and A, minerals and lycopene. Rosehip seed oil that is organic is usually a vibrant orange-yellow color because it has a higher concentration of beneficial vitamin A and carotenoids. So, keep this in mind when sourcing rosehip seed oil.
Here is How to make rosehip seed oil facial moisturizer
This recipe for rosehip seed oil facial moisturizer has 7 ingredients that boost the skin and none that are toxic. Once batch can last for months because you don’t need to use a lot of it (plus, it is cheaper than store-bought anti-aging products).
What you need:
- 1 tablespoon of beeswax
- 1/4 cup of sweet almond oil
- 1 tablespoon mango butter
- 2 tablespoon of rosehip seed oil
- 10 drops of vitamin E
- 7 drops of patchouli essential oil (you can also use geranium instead)
- 7 drops of frankincense essential oil (you can also carrot seed instead)
What you need:
- Mix the sweet almond oil, mango butter and beeswax in the heat-safe glass bowl. Fill the smaller pot halfway with water and place the glass bowl on top to make a double boiler. Make sure the glass bowl does not touch the pot’s bottom. Turn the heat on to a medium setting.
- Slowly stir until everything has melted, then switch off the heat and remove the bowl from the pot carefully. Let it sit for a moment so it cools down, then stir in the essential oils, vitamin E and rosehip seed oil. Don’t allow these oils to get too hot; they are sensitive to heat.
- Put the glass bowl in the refrigerator for 25-30 minutes or until the contents cool and thicken. Don’t let them get hard to the point where you can’t poke your finger through the surface.
- Using a hand whisk or mixer with a whisk attachment, mix the facial moisturizer until it is smooth and creamy. When it starts to look like a lotion, stop mixing.
- Store the mixture in a metal tin or glass jar.
How to Use:
Clean your skin with your favorite cleanser and pat it dry. Using circular motions, massage a tiny amount of the moisturizer into your skin using your fingers.
