What can  we use right?

Myself and many of my customers have been looking for natural ways to look younger such as foods, drinks, supplements and even facials.

The good news  is that  science has allowed us to harness the beauty secrets  held in nature.

Jus as an introduction into plant-based beauty , we are going look at 3 plants that you might know but should be incorporated into you health-beauty regime.


 Let me say this…

 I had never heard of this plant until a new product launch for anti-ageing  from  the company and got to experience it .

So I am encouraging you to do the same.  Try it out.

Essentially, a Rosehip is the fruit of a rose. Other names include Rose Haw or Rose Hep.

Rosehip  has so many benefits, it will be impossible to touch on  them all.

Firstly,  it contain 50% more vitamin C than oranges and there for, has many of the same benefits.

For instance, it is a powerful immune booster and used to treat kidney and liver disorders.

 Rosehip has been used to  prevent    cancer and  heart disease.

 A study  done in  Denmark and Germany showed  significant in persons suffering from rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.

 The study group improved in mobility by 20-25% and experienced less pain…… and  were generally happier.

So how does Rosehip help your skin?

As a powerful antioxidant as mentioned previously,  Rosehip can help the skin recover  from sun damage. It also  provides protection from the sun and other environmental stressors.

Rosehip has a  very high  levels of both vitamins A and  C which are essential skin vitamins. They help to lock in the skin’s natural moisture while supporting collagen production and protection.

The astringent and anti-inflammatory properties help prevent  hyper-pigmentation and acne.

 A list of the benefits of Rosehip

Who doesn’t want  soft, nourished, smooth skin and a clear complexion right.

Along with the other good stuff of course…

It helps to regenerate skin cells,  which is so important  for healing wounds and scars.

More good news…

Rosehip helps to reduce wrinkles and fine lines and  hence helps to   prevent  further skin damage by supporting  the skin’s   structure, moisture and regeneration process.

So take the time to smell the roses and at the right  time eat them too.
