Here’s entry 3 from DANIELLA, aspirant interior designer with a passion for health living
Rosehip oil is a fantastic oil that every woman should include in their beauty routine. As I was approaching my thirties, and after losing some weight, I noticed my skin had lost some elasticity and I saw some wrinkles appearing under the eyes and on my forehead.
From that moment, I tried to read and experiment with various product to see what worked best for me. My aim was to find something that could prevent more ageing, eliminate or soften some of the existing conditions and was a product natural and free from chemicals that in the long term does more damage than good.
So I discovered rosehip oil. From my trials, I have discovered the beauty routine that works best for me and in the last two years has given me amazing results. It doesn’t take long but what I feel is important is knowing how and what to do.
WHEN to apply. I apply my rosehip oil twice a day in the morning before make up and at night
before going to bed.
HOW to apply. In the morning after the shower, I pat dry my skin and apply the oil. It is very important to let the rosehip oil be absorbed into your skin before you put on any sunscreen lotion
or make up. As Rosehip is an oil, your make up would slide off your face in a couple of hours if you do not wait. Also, in the morning, you only need a little to moisturise and you can be more generous at
HOW to maximise the benefit of the oil. EXFOLIATING your skin this will definitely help the overall look of your skin. Everyone has their own personal and favourite method: mine is wet brushing. I
do this twice a week while I’m in the shower. It makes my skin lovely smooth and free from imperfections. Be careful if you want to exfoliate more than twice a week; you need to do this in a slow incremental way, as your skin could temporarily look drier and more wrinkled if you do it too often or too soon. MASSAGE the oil into your skin. This, in my experience, is very beneficial for softening
your wrinkles as it relaxes the muscles and facilitates the blood flow to your face.
EXTRA tips. Start with rosehip oil and if you like the results buy some other oils. My favourites are Avocado, Argan and Camellia. Normally a bottle of any oil will last me a month. I use it as a facial
and body moisturiser and my partner uses them too, so it is actually very cost effective. What I do is I alternate one month rosehip oil with one month any other of these oils. These oils are like
food to my skin. Would you eat only one food for the rest of your life?
What I like about the Fushi Rosehip oil is the quality of the product, the cost, the fact that all their products are organic and cold pressed and that you can clearly see the date it was produced. Rosehip oil spoils very easily, so it is essential for me to know that the product I bought has not been sitting for a couple of years in a warehouse.
Last but not least. If you what to see results with fading your wrinkles, please give the product at least a six month trial.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
