Yes, life is fast-paced. Mine is a constant run in between airports, sitting in long-haul flights and being exposed to constant air conditioning or central heating. Obviously, a busy life creates stress, no matter how much you love your job (and I do!). And stress shows on your skin, ages you internally and can manifest as an unwanted skin irritation.
Is your skin not looking as radiant as you would like it to be? An ingredient that you need to know about asap is Rosehip Oil. For my skin comfort, it has done a lot, and it makes me even more in awe of what nature provides.
Going into my 8th year of providing training for Bellabaci International, my skin should be looking a lot worse than it is. A lot. Growing older has also got its effects… But, walking the walk and not just talking the talk shows that a few minutes a day can and will have a dramatic effect.
My favorite skin loving remedy is the Skin Get a Life Genie in a Bottle. It contains a superb choice of 4 carrier oils to nourish and rejuvenate deeply. These are:
- Fractionated Coconut Oil
- Baobab Oil
- Argan Oil
- Rosehip Oil
In the ingredient list, you will also replenish your skin with some amazing synergies which include Neroli, Patchouli, Geranium, Clary Sage, Mandarin, and Silica to name a few.
Quick steps to radiant skin with the Skin Get a Life Kit:
Make sure your day includes just 2 minutes spent using your Facial Massage cup and working in the Skin Get a Life Oil. It is easy when standing in front of your bathroom mirror until you become a pro!
- Apply your oil liberally
- Squeeze the cup and set down on your forehead, immediately moving it around in circles. Divide your face into two halves, working from the middle outwards.
- Cover your skin well. The action of the increased blood flow with the penetration enhancing benefit will address your fine lines, wrinkles, sagging or puffy skin, scars, and broken capillaries.

The Intensive Nitty Gritty about Skin, Stress and Rosehip Oil:
Rosehips were a remedy that was used by the ancient Egyptians, Mayans and Native Americans all because of their significant properties. No wonder then that Rosehip oil has been hailed in the media as the next coconut oil since it’s not just for wrinkles, scars and stretch marks.
Emotions have a potent effect on the skin. This is why stress plays havoc with the skin [integumentary system], as well as other body systems e.g. the nervous, digestive and cardiovascular systems.
How Stress affects your skin
Stress affects the skin due to a chemical response, which occurs in the body that makes skin more sensitive, reactive, and harder to heal. It can also exacerbate/worsen existing skin problems such as eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea, as well as cause skin rashes, hives, itching, dryness, acne, and pimples, plus trigger outbreaks of herpes simplex [cold sores/fever blisters].
Stress has a very dehydrating effect on the skin, which is why it contributes to premature aging and wrinkles. How? A body under stress shunts blood flow away from peripheral organs, such as skin, to provide energy to muscles and the brain, and the result of this homeostatic action is dehydration.
Stress also causes an inflammatory response in the body and leads to pores becoming clogged and acne breakouts. Rosehip oil is a very effective topical anti-inflammatory agent. The adrenal glands, key organs that control the stress hormones cortisol and adrenaline, go into overdrive, which leads to the release of more androgens [male hormones], which in turn leads to more spots!
What else can Rosehip oil mean for your skin?
Apart from the fact that Rosehip oil can be used for conditions such as stress, it is also packed with nutrients and essential fatty acids. The exceptional fatty acid percentage is crucial for fragile and damaged skins. It is also a fantastic natural vitamin A, which helps to rejuvenate and refine skin tone and texture. This magnificent oil is a great choice for city slickers because of the high levels of antioxidants fighting against environmental damage.
