Oils. If using them on your face still frightens you with visions of shiny foreheads and breakouts, you need to get versed on the key ingredients in our new vitamin C-packed Rosehip Triple C+E Firming Oil. The triple threat of sea buckthorn, jojoba and rosehip oils is loaded with vitamins, nutrition and incredible benefits for the skin.
Here’s a breakdown on what these miracle oils can do for your face:
1. ROSEHIP OIL
A beauty secret for celebrities like Victoria Beckham, Gwyneth Paltrow and Kate Middleton, this effective oil is incredibly rich in vitamin C (Fox News). And, as we’ve mentioned before in this blog, vitamin C is key for superstar skin.
With its high content of the antioxidant vitamin C, rosehip oil for the face protects the skin from aging effects.As an antioxidant, this vitamin fights free radicals – unstable molecules with a missing electron that goes around “stealing” electrons. When free radicals steal electrons from proteins like collagen, the process creates damage called oxidation which ages the skin. Antioxidants like vitamin C save the day by donating electrons to these greedy free radicals and stopping the oxidation process. With its high content of the antioxidant vitamin C, rosehip oil for the face protects the skin from aging effects.
On top of its antioxidant superpowers, rosehip oil also hydrates powerfully, combats dark spots, reduces fine lines and works against inflammation. In fact, this oil is so versatile, it was a common remedy used by ancient Egyptians, Mayans and native Americans (Huffington Post).
Traditionally used for healing wounds and dry skin, this oil is another incredible source of vitamin C.
2. SEA BUCKTHORN OIL
Long used in Russia and Eastern Europe as protection against their cold, biting climates, sea buckthorn oil only recently gained popularity in the rest of the world (XOVain). Traditionally used for healing wounds and dry skin, this oil is another incredible source of vitamin C. Additional benefits come from a long list of star ingredients including vitamins A, E, beta carotene, omega 3 fatty acids and minerals. Like rosehip oil, sea buckthorn oil and its vitamin C content prevents the look of aging and keeps skin firm and elastic.
3. JOJOBA OIL
This oil also contains a bundle of beneficial ingredients including vitamin B complex, copper, zinc, selenium and the standout vitamin E. The superstar benefit in jojoba oil, though, is its ability to mimic your body’s natural oils. Goodbye, shiny foreheads! Jojoba oil communicates to your skin that is sufficiently hydrated and doesn’t need to produce more sebum. This effect balances oil production and halts the generation of too much oil on your complexion (Wellness Today).
