Face oils are being touted as the “Next Big Thing” in the United States. Major media headlines and celebrity trendsetters like Mariska Hargitay, Gwyneth Paltrow and Emma Stone sharing they use natural facial oils for their red carpet glow. However, they are not new beauty solutions. Europeans like the French have been using facial oils for naturally chic skincare for decades.

There is one specific and very effective oil we call in Europe “The Queen of Oils”
Natura Culina Regenerating Facial Oil
I’m in love with this natural treasure and here is why. Rosehip seed oil penetrates the skin’s upper layers very quickly, making it an excellent natural moisturizer. It supports the keratin migration cycle that is responsible for the natural regeneration of skin cells, increasing the amount of renewed cells in the epidermis. These cells produce more collagen and elastin which make the skin look smoother, firmer and suppler. In addition to its healing of sensitive, allergic, sun damaged, hyper-pigmented, aging, or problem skin, rosehip seed oil also provides immediate relief for dry skin and eczema. The positive action in helping to regenerate damaged skin tissues was originally attributed to its high content of essential unsaturated fatty acids, names oleic, linoleic and linolenic. Extensive studies have shown positive effects on scars and stretch marks. It is an excellent source of topical trans-retinoic acid (vitamin A) in a natural form.
