I've been switching over to making a lot of my own body products to minimize my exposure to chemicals that have a negative impact on health. One such product is the anti-aging facial serum that I use daily. They're all so expensive, and don't always use the best ingredients, even when you do manage to find ones focused on natural, chemical-free solutions. Side bonus: I tend to get a more effective product and a much lower cost than what's made by commercial companies.
This recipe uses organic rosehip oil as the base, which contains vitamin A, which can benefit the skin by reducing wrinkles, hyperpigmentation. reducing and reversing sun damage, while also treating mild to moderate acne. The vitamin C contained in reship oil may also help reduce ultraviolet light damage caused by free radicals, and also supports collagen productions which helps reduce wrinkles. It also can increase wound healing and help prevent dry skin. More details about rosehip oil benefits.
