    Eczema TipEczema is a condition that causes the skin to become inflamed or irritated. No matter which part of the skin is affected, eczema is almost always itchy. Sometimes the itchiness will start before a rash appears, but when it does, the rash most commonly appears on the face, back of the knees, wrists, hands, or feet. It may also affect other areas as well. Affected areas usually appear very dry or scaly.

    Rosehip Oil TipRosehips are the fruit of a rosebush and is the ingredient LOVED by celebrities for keeping their skin in top condition. The anti-aging benefit from using Rosehip oil on your face comes about due to the antioxidants and the oil's ability to penetrate into deeper layers of skin. The vitamin C antioxidants stimulate collagen production. It also helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The oil can penetrate due to the vitamin A, which has small enough molecules to go deeper into the skin. Vitamin A improves the skin's moisture levels and reduces wrinkles and fine lines.
