Miracle Skincare Product: Rosehip Seed Oil

Rosehip Seed Oil is an ingredient found in numerous skincare products. However, now that Victoria Secret model Miranda Kerr is claiming that it’s her secret to having glowing skin, our interest is piqued.

In an article in the Huffington Post, Kerr said ‘I like to wear rosehip oil at night. It’s full of that many antioxidants and it really works on a cellular level to rejuvenate the skin. I put that on at night and I wake up glowing.’”

Unlike other oils, rosehip seed oil is actually non-greasy and very light. You can even use it in addition to other lotions and creams. It’s also very helpful for skin hydration and skin sensitivities. It’s a natural acne and eczema treatment. As if that weren’t enough, “with skin rejuvenating properties like vitamin C and lycopene, rosehip seed oil is a safer solution to repair the skin’s surface, restore elasticity, and protects against sun and pollution stressors that can lead to wrinkles.”

Are you running out to buy a bottle of this supposed miracle oil? Or, are you already a believer?

Amazing Beauty Uses of Oatmeal

Obviously, oatmeal is great for breakfast. Did you also know that it could be great for your skin? According to an article on, if you’re not feeling oatmeal as a breakfast option, there are some great ways you can use it to enhance your beauty:

Treat Acne: Mix up some plain oatmeal and let it cool. Apply it to problem areas where you’re seeing acne, allow it to dry for 15 minutes and then rinse. The oatmeal will absorb and remove oil and bacteria, while exfoliating dead skin cells at the same time.

Treat Skin Rashes: Grind oats into a powder and put into a cheesecloth or a clean pair of pantyhose. Attach it to the tub’s faucet so the water runs though the pouch. Run lukewarm bath water, squeeze the pouch to saturate the water, and voila!

Moisturize: Add 1 cup of milk, 2 cups of oats and 1 tablespoon of honey to a bath to moisturize skin!

Face Mask: Combine 2 tablespoons of grinded oats with 4 spoonfuls of milk. Add a few drops of lemon juice and apply to your skin for 20 minutes for an amazing (and all-natural!) face-mask.

Body Scrub: Grind 2 tablespoons of oatmeal into a grainy consistency. Add 1 teaspoon of baking soda and a small amount of water to turn into a paste. Scrub on your skin for 10 minutes and you will rinse it off to baby soft skin underneath.

These are just a few of the many great uses for oatmeal. Do you have any tips? Share them on our Facebook page!
