Antioxidants Fight Free Radicals and Stimulate Collagen Production for a More Youthful Complexion
By now you are probably aware of the importance of antioxidants for an ageless complexion, and rosehip oil sure doesn’t disappoint!
Vitamin A can penetrate deep into the pores, due to its small molecules, where it amps up hydration levels in the skin’s cells.
Vitamin C, our favourite beauty antioxidant, helps to fight off inflammation and free radicals, while promoting the formation of collagen, to prevent fine lines and wrinkles, and ensure the skin stays taut and plump.
Fatty Acids Bring The Radiance and Reduce the Appearance of Scars
Fatty acids are essential for ensuring the skin stays healthy and glowing, and it is a key player in skin regeneration.
Fatty acids also have powerful anti-inflammatory properties, and this, along with the skin repairing properties of Vitamin A and Vitamin E can help to fade scars from an angry red or purple to a light pinkish hue that is easy to conceal with some mineral makeup!
Antioxidants Work Together To Provide Powerful Photo-aging Protection
The sun is one of the skin’s biggest enemies, and nothing ages the skin faster than too many years spent outdoors without any sun protection.
Over time the sun’s damage can show up as discolouration, sunspots and of cours, those dreaded wrinkles and fine lines. Prevention is always better than cure in our opinion, so what better time than now to start applying this miracle oil to your precious skin?
The sun decreases the production of collagen, but Vitamin C’s powerful antioxidant properties can help counteract this. Essential fatty acids, along with vitamin A, ensure that the skin is hydrated and helps to improve skin texture while reducing pigmentation. Fatty acids also rejuvenate the skin and increase cell turnover.
