This Nightly Ritual Will Leave Your Skin Feeling Fresh And Hydrated
The thought of putting oil on your skin may sound scary if you’re prone to breakouts or afraid of having oily skin in general. But as counterintuitive as face oil may sound, a lot of essential oils contain anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial compounds that will leave your skin feeling hydrated when you wake up. One of our favorite essential oils to use is organic rosehip oil.
Applying essential oils directly to your face penetrates your skin more easily than your average moisturizer. Rub a light layer of rosehip oil on your face and around your eyes before you go to sleep every night. If you’re consistent with it, you’ll reap the benefits.
Rosehip oil is high in vitamin A and vitamin C, which are both nutrients that can help to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines and stimulate collagen production. Rosehip oil is also known to increase cell turnover since it contains vitamin E, C, D and beta-carotene, which is helpful if you suffer from dark circles. The anti-inflammatory benefits of rosehip oil can also help with under-eye puffiness.
Pro tip: If you’re going to try this rosehip ritual on a nightly basis, you may want to sleep on a pillowcase that you don’t care about, just in case there’s excess oil on your face.
