This natural carrot and rosehip oil clay mask recipe is ideal for toning and detoxifying maturing or dry skin that is occasionally prone to acne.
Rosehip seed oil is prized for its anti-aging and anti-wrinkle properties in skin care as well as helping to nourish dry, weathered, and dehydrated skin. As rosehip seed oil is considered a “dry” oil it soaks easily into skin without leaving a greasy residue behind.
Carrot seed essential oil is also believed to aid in removing wrinkles and helping to rejuvenate skin.
French green clay, another key component of this carrot and rosehip oil clay mask recipe, “drinks” oils, toxic substances, and impurities from skin while also toning skin, revitalizing the complexion, and tightening pores. It’s also wonderful for helping to clear problem skin.
