There are ingredients that come and go as fads in the world of natural skin care. I don’t generally swim with the stream when it comes to following the next new craze, but as fads go, rosehip oil is one, I would argue, that is worth hopping on the wagon! It has been tested over time and proven beneficial for any skin type.

Charcoal naturally acts like a magnet and clings to all of that grime clogging your pores, causing breakouts, dulling your complexion, and getting in the way of that natural glow.

While it’s pulling out the grime, it also helps to regulate oil, fight acne-causing bacteria, and exfoliate!

I don’t even want to know how much money I have spent over the years on products, really hoping and believing that the answer to all my skin problems could maybe, just maybe, come in a 2 oz jar. That’s not to say that there aren’t good products out there, because there are. But the hard truth is that no matter what miracle cream/serum/elixir you slather on your face, unless you are treating the rest of your body right those results are likely out of reach.
