You know the drill. The transition from winter to spring calls for an adjustment in our daily routines to adapt to the new temperatures. Last week, we gave you tips on how to go through an efficient, and sustainable, spring cleaning (read it here). And now that we have a clean space (and some peace of mind from all of that clutter), let’s head to the bathroom cabinet to see how we can swap our skincare routine to fit the warmer temperatures that spring has to offer!
While there are some heavy-duty products that you can put away for now, there are some skincare essentials, like Rosehip Oil, that you can use pretty much year round! Here are some tips on how you can use Rosehip Oil to fit your new springtime routine.
Use it in Place of Your Moisturizer
On its own, Rosehip Oil is an incredible facial oil that has lots of benefits and antioxidants like vitamins A and C. It’s a “dry” oil, which basically means that it absorbs quickly and won’t clog your pores, so even oily skin types can use it. Instead of using a thick moisturizer to hydrate your skin, consider swapping to Rosehip Oil to help keep your skin nourished, balanced and soft all season long!
Make a DIY Exfoliator
After a long, cold winter, your skin can’t help but be rough and dry. If you really want to get that natural, summer glow, you need to get rid of those leftover layers of dead skin from winter. Since Rosehip Oil is a natural source of vitamin A, it works to help you remove those leftover layers. Make your own gentle DIY exfoliator by combining 1 cup of ultra-fine sugar with ¼ cup of olive oil and 1 tbsp. of Rosehip Oil. Make sure the sugar is ultra-fine - if it’s too coarse it can damage your skin. Massage it into your face gently applying barely any pressure and rinse with warm water to reveal soft skin.
Help Soothe Dry Skin
Weather changes can throw your skin out of balance, leaving it red, irritated and cracked. And not only is the skin on your face affected by these changes, but so is the skin on your body. You can apply our pure Rosehip Oil on cracked and dry areas of your body, such as your elbows and heels to help nourish and rehydrate them. You can also pour some oil to a small tube and apply it throughout the day on your lips to soften them.
Nobody wants lifeless hair through spring. Nature is basically calling for us to let our hair down and let it thrive, but not before you get a little help from Rosehip Oil! Some hair masks (like our new Treatment Mask) are designed to reinvigorate your hair, but add a little Rosehip Oil to your blend, and voilà! You’ve got a potion that’s scalp-soothing, too. You can also apply it directly on your scalp to treat any dryness or flakiness.
Mix with Makeup for that Dewy Look
Rosehip Oil isn’t only for your skincare routine - it also works as a part of your makeup routine. You can mix it with your liquid foundation or with your blush to help achieve a dewy skin tone. Or you can even use it on its own on your cheekbones as a highlighter, on your lips as lipgloss or even on your brows to help brush and style them. The possibilities are endless with what you can do with Rosehip Oil!
