If you could only take ONE product with you on a Green Getaway…
…what would it be?
Also fab for summer is SUKIN’S AWARD-WINNING SUMMER SKIN SALVATION, 100% PURE ROSEHIP OIL (sourced from the seeds of wild Chilean grown rosehips, using a special solvent-free extraction process) and it’s been wowing beauty judges.
This “do-lots” pure oil was RUNNER UP in the Beauty Heaven Best in Beauty Awards 2014 – Best Age Management Product and also Commended in the Free From Skincare Awards in 2013.
SUKIN’s award-winning Rosehip oil £14.24 – aka one of skin’s best friends
SUKIN’s (extremely well priced at £14.24) Rosehip Oil would have to be up there on our list because it’s one of those single ingredient oils which does so much and looks after skin at so many levels by rejuvenating, healing and protecting.
Not surprisingly, SUKIN’s 100% Certified Organic Rosehip Oil is one of their hero products – it’s one of their year-round best-sellers.
How does Rosehip Oil act as a skin healer and anti-ager?
This oil is naturally rich in essential fatty acids (which protect cell membranes), Vitamin E, beta carotene and lycopene which is a forceful anti-ager – in fact, Rosehip Oil is one of the most age-slowing, skin-healing oils on our planet.
And it’s excellent for scarring or skin that’s overdone the sun
Rosehip Oil is the powerful, healing oil to have on your list if you want to fade a scar or you’ve subjected your skin to a bit too much sun – think of it as the facial oil version of a super-charged nutrition supplement.
How to use: 2-3 drops massaged into skin morning and night. In summer we’d be tempted to use this only at night, added to your night moisturiser .
(Remember, facial oils and direct sun are not a good combo!)
If you’re going out into the sun first thing in the morning, you might just want to use this at night. It also works well on dry hands – blend a drop into your hand and nail cream and it’ll help keep hands smoother and softer even longer.
