Yes, it may sound strange that an oil can benefit when you have acne prone skin. But do not ever judge a book by the cover, ever! Rosehip Oil , is an oil indeed, but, it is the most light weight oil I have ever tried. I know I have already said this in my previous posts, but I just cannot stress it enough. So, why is this oil good for your acne? Well, acne means sensitivity, skin irritability, inflammation and a lot if frustration of course. Rosehip oil can and will treat all these unpleasant effects that acne leaves on your face due to its wonderful fatty acids and vitamin E elements it contains that basically regenerate derma. And, more specially, it will not leave greasy effect on your skin, even though you have an oily skin type. I know, it is unbelievable, but you just need to try it to see with your own eyes. J
They always say to use astringent solutions on your face when you have acne. WRONG! Astringent will only tell the skin that it needs to release more sebum to balance the PH, fact that will bring even more acne.
Now, when you suffer from acne, you need to be careful what you EAT. Yeah, it is always about what we eat seems like it. Also, do you drink enough water per day? It is recommendable to drink about 33 ml of water/kilogram of body weight on a daily basis. For example if your weight is 50 kg, you multiply 50 by 33 and the result would be 1.65 l per day. If you drink coffee or other drinks that contain caffeine, you need to drink an extra glass of water each time as caffeine dehydrates the body. However, from my own experience, I can say it is hard to drink that much but I have a tip that I usually use. Always have a 500 ml glass with water on your desk and sip it every 15 minutes even though you do not feel the need. It helps and you will see the difference, at the end of the day you won’t even know you actually drank enough water without too much fuss. J Drinking enough water helps with digestion. A slow digestion releases toxins in your body that can show on your face.
Another trigger for acne can be MILK. Try for 1 month not to drink milk/milk derivate (cheese, chocolate etc) and replace it with soya milk, cashew, almonds etc. At the beginning the difference you sense will be major, as the taste is really different because the cow milk is much tasty due to the fat it contains, on the other hand, the plant milk will have a waterish taste, but don’t get discouraged by that. The more you drink it, the more you’ll like it, it is a matter of habit. Do not worry about calcium, eating beans, potatoes, oranges and sesame seeds on a daily basis will do. It is scientifically proven that vegetable have calcium abortion rate of 50%, compared with about 30% for milk.
Always use gentle ingredients on your face such us: clay powder, honey, chamomile tea and natural masks. NEVER use lemon or baking soda! They will ruin your skin PH level. Instead, use Rosehip Oil for anti-ageing and healing properties.
When you apply rosehip oil on your face, don’t just apply it. Massage it gently all over your face until you can see that is has been absorbed by the skin entirely.
Apply Rosehip Oil around your eyes (Of course be careful not to introduce it into your eyes, BUT you already know that, because ALL my readers are smart anyway. HAHAH!) The eyes area is the most sensitive and has a very thin skin that ages the first and the worst if we do not take good care of it from an early stage.
Go to dermatologist and ask for a set of analysis including blood analysis and pustule analysis to test your level of bacteria on your face.
Do not buy expensive creams that some doctors may suggest to treat acne. Acne CANNOT be treated by using expensive creams! You must discover the trigger from within the body (what you eat, hormonal level etc). You are definitely doing something that your body does not like and reacts through acne.
