Now that I’m in my early 30s, following a good skincare routine is more important than ever, but so many anti-ageing products on the market are packed with chemicals and other hidden nasties.
For me, when it comes to skincare, the purer the better, which is why wild harvested organic rosehip oil has become my secret weapon.
Containing 100 per cent organic rosehip oil, this all-natural treatment is brimming with antioxidants, which fight free radicals and reduce the signs of ageing, including those dreaded fine lines and wrinkles.
As you know, I can be prone to sensitive skin, but this gentle oil quickly soothes any dryness and irritations, and after using it for a few weeks I can see a real improvement in the tone and texture of my skin.
This little bottle of miracle oil is a serious multi-tasker. Not only does it hydrate dry skin, it also helps prevent blemishes and pimples, as it tightens pores and contains natural astringents that cleanse and regulate sebum (the stuff responsible for the natural oils in your skin).
Now, you might think that applying an oil directly to your skin will leave it feeling all slick and greasy, but this delicate oil is absorbed rapidly into the skin, so you can apply it in the morning and evening without any residue.
After I’ve cleansed in the morning, I add a few drops to my face, neck and chest while my skin is still damp, then apply a tinted moisturiser right over the top. At night, I use it after washing my face, followed by an antioxidant night restoring cream for a double-hit of anti-ageing power.
I’m not alone in my love of rosehip oil. Kate Middleton, Gwyneth Paltrow, Miranda Kerr and Victoria Beckham are just some of the beauties who swear by a daily dose rosehip oil. And between you and me, I think I’ve even spotted Tim using a few drops after getting out of the shower – luckily for him, it has a very mild scent, so he doesn’t walk around smelling like roses all day!
