Trilogy rosehip oil antioxidant+

I wasn’t really sure about this antioxidant when first trying it, but I am now a happy user.
I have been using the Trilogy rosehip oil antioxidant+ for about 3 months now, I am really happy with it and can see a real difference in my skin.
When I first opened it and smelled it, I was sure the oil had gone bad, as it really didn’t smell very pleasant. I was even very close to writing the company to ask if it was suppose to smell that way. But after reading a few reviews on the product, quite a few said that they weren’t keen on the smell. I can now report that the product only seemed to smell in the beginning, and after a few weeks, I didn’t notice the smell at all. Then there were the fact that my whole face became very red and hot first time applying it, so was quite worried that I was having an allergic reaction to the product, but it went away completely within an hour, and I know from work that these symptoms can just be your skin reacting to new ingredients, so kept using it and already the second time using it wasn’t as bad, and after a week my skin didn’t react to the product any more.

Now that being said, I have tried quite a few antioxidants, and this is by far the best oil based one I have tried. It is based on rosehip oil, that is said to reduce pores and even out you complexion and can really see a difference in those two areas. I have used antioxidants that was jojoba oil based or dry oil based, that gave me blocked pores and dry spots, where this does neither of those.

Despite being oil based, this has not made my skin more oily, but have actually evened out the oily and dry areas, to being more harmonious. I can also see a difference in my hyper pigmentation they just seem more evened out. It isn’t a big difference, but despite it being summer and I have been in the sun a lot this year, I wasn’t expecting to see a difference at all.

I also use a drop on the back of my hands, and I really notice the days I have forgot to use it there, as my hands just look a lot older those days.

This is really a product I would recommend and would defiantly repurchase it.

Why use an antioxidant serum?

I used to work for a company that distributes cosmeceutical here in the UK, which was where I learned about skincare and the importance of antioxidants for your skin.

I am by no means a qualified beauty therapist, and I am not an expert in any way, but when I use to do professional training, I often got the question, why should you use an antioxidant for your skin? 

Before I worked with skincare myself and was educated in how skin regeneration of skin works, I would get so confused when talking to a sales assistant, selling skin care. They would quite often explain what an antioxidant is, with big, difficult to understand words that they didn’t even seem to understand completely them selfs, and I would feel even more confused than before I went into the shop.
So because of that, I found a visual way to explain it, that everyone could understand, not just qualified beauty therapist. 

Imagine your body as one giant machine, which transforms the food we eat into nutrientsand antioxidants for your body and its organs. Now despite the skin being our bodies biggest organ, it is often the last one on the list to get a piece of the antioxidant pie. This means that most people don’t get enough antioxidants through their diet, for the skin to be optimally protected against everyday dangers.

Just like most of us take a daily vitamin, just to make sure we are getting the vitamins we are not getting through our daily diet, the answer for the skin is an antioxidant serum. Together with a balanced diet that includes antioxidant rich fruits and vegetables,that will help your skin with the antioxidants it needs to fight and repair to keep you skin at its optimal.
A few have asked if is then still necessary to wear a spf, when you are using an antioxidant and it is. Think of the spf as the first defence when imagining the fight agains sun damage, that will keep most of the rays from making damage. Antioxidants are then the second defence that will try and repair and make your cells stronger to withstand any damage that might get around the spf. So imagine spf as soldiers on the front line for your skin, and an antioxidant as nurses behind the line of fire taking care of the wounded.
