Have you been looking for ways to age gracefully and make sure that your body and your skin stay healthy and looking good for longer? We've got some tips using two incredible anti-aging essential oils to help bring out your natural beauty at 50, 60, and beyond!
It begins with understanding what the heck collagen is...
It’s all about the collagen as we age and making sure collagen production stays high. If you’re wondering what collagen is, it is an essential building block for our skin, muscles, bones, tendons, and ligaments — making it the most important protein in our body that makes up pretty much...everything. Think of it as the “glue” that holds our bodies together.
As we age, collagen production slows down and not taking care of our bodies, our skin health, and overall health can slow it down even faster. This is what causes wrinkles, sagging skin and more.
That’s Where Rosehip Comes In, Collagen’s New Best Friend
Rosehip oil is packed with vitamin A, essential for collagen production, and given how potent it is, rosehip oil is phenomenal for your skin and natural skincare routine.
Rosehip oil is a huge pro-aging ally.
Using rosehip oil for aging skin in products like day creams or night creams will help the skin retain its elasticity, which is a fancy way of saying it keeps your skin firm. Rosehip has even been shown to inhibit the production of MMP-1, an enzyme that breaks down collagen in the body.
The benefits don’t breakdown there, rosehip oil also has vitamin E which is an antioxidant that will help keep skin healthy and kill off free-radicals that can cause all sorts of bad things for our body.
The Benefits of Rosehip Oil are a Win For Your Skin
With the rich vitamin A & C concentration in rosehip oil, it makes it the perfect lifetime companion for collagen and keeping your skin elasticity stronger and looking phenomenal.
- Promotes production of collagen
- Powerful antioxidants fight free-radicals
- Helps to reduce inflammation
- Hydrates skin and keeps it hydrated longer
- Helps to reduce sunspots and hyperpigmentation
Mānuka Oil and Rosehip Oil are the Skincare Duo You Need
Though rosehip oil is pretty phenomenal on its own, East Cape mānuka oil helps to amplify rosehip oil’s benefits while contributing to your skin health in an enormous way. Mānuka oil is synergistic, which means it not only works well with other skin oils, but it helps to boost their benefits as well.
East Cape mānuka oil is already one of the best essential oils for your skin, with powerful triketones that give it antibacterial, antifungal and antimicrobial traits even more powerful than tea tree oil. That’s why it made sense to combine rosehip oil and mānuka oil into a ManukaRx Day Cream and ManukaRx Night Cream to help your skin stay fortified and to flourish past your 50s!
Mānuka oil benefits for your skin go beyond other oils:
- Effectively kills bad bacteria and germs preventing infection
