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.

- The Rosehip Oil Diaries- Entry 1Dear Fatima, thank you for your message. For your type of skin Almond oil is ok -- its comedogenic level is 2 out of 5, it means it's not going to clog your pores. If you are looking for something even lower on that scale, you should go for Argan, Rosehip, Grapeseed, Hemp -oil which are 0-1. I hope this helps.
