MONKS BEAUTY SECRETS: PLATEAU ROSE ESSENTIAL OIL

Plateau rose is widely used in China in beauty products and medicinal as tea and is harvested specifically from Yunnan Province.

We will introduce Plateau rose essential oil used for dehydrated skin.

RECIPE:

4 drops of Plateau Rose Essential Oil

5 drops of Jasmine Essential Oil

10 ml of carrier oil such as Jojoba, Lotus, sweet almond, avocado, or Coconut oil.

Mix the above ingredients and apply several drops in the morning and evening on the face and neck area. Massage to enter the skin.

The skin is the largest organ of the body, covering about 2 m2 of the body’s surface. The optimal pH value of skin on our face and body lies between 4.7 and 5.75. A pH of 7 (pure water) is neutral. Anything below 7 is acidic, and above is alkaline. Therefore, the skin’s natural pH is mildly acidic.

BENEFITS OF PLATEAU ROSE ESSENTIAL OIL:

1. HYDRATION

Hydration is essential for soft and elastic skin. Lack of hydration can be a problem during extreme weather or as skin ages. Rose oil contains essential fatty acids, such as linoleic and linolenic acid. Fatty acids help to keep cell walls strong so that they do not lose water. The many fatty acids in rose oil make it an excellent option for hydrating dry, itchy skin. The skin also quickly absorbs the oil, allowing its antioxidants to enter deep into the skin’s layers.

2. MOISTURIZER (lock in skin’s natural hydration)

3. EXFOLIATE AND MAKES THE SKIN BRIGHTER

Natural exfoliation with rose oil can help reduce dullness and leave the skin glowing and vibrant. Rose oil is high in vitamins A and C. Vitamin A, or retinol, encourages skin cells to replenish. Vitamin C aids in cell regeneration, boosting overall radiance.

4. BOOST COLLAGEN FORMATION

Collagen is the building block of skin. It is essential for skin elasticity and firmness. The body naturally makes less collagen as it ages. Rose oil is rich in vitamins A and C. They are both necessary for collagen production. Rose inhibits the creation of MMP-1, an enzyme that breaks down collagen in the body.

5. REDUCES INFLAMMATION

Rose is rich in polyphenols and anthocyanin, which help reduce skin inflammation. It also contains vitamin E, an antioxidant known for its anti-inflammatory effects. In addition, rose oil may help calm irritation resulting from skin disorders such as rosacea, psoriasis, eczema, dermatitis.

6. PROTECTION AGAINST SUN DAMAGE

Cumulative damage from a lifetime of exposure to the sun plays a significant role in premature aging. UV exposure can also interfere with the body’s ability to produce collagen. Rose oil contains antioxidants like vitamins A, C, and E. These vitamins have synergistically combat visible sun damage. They may also help prevent photoaging.

7. REDUCES HYPERPIGMENTATION

Rose oil is rich in vitamin A. Vitamin A comprises several nutritional compounds, including retinoids. Retinoids are known for their ability to reduce hyperpigmentation and other visible signs of aging with regular use. Rose oil also contains both lycopene and beta carotene. These ingredients have skin-lightening properties, making them staple ingredients in many skin-lightening products.

8. REDUCE SCARS AND FINE LINES

Rose oil is rich in essential fatty acids and antioxidants, integral for tissue and cell regeneration. The recommendation is to be used for at least 12 weeks to see the effects on scars and fine lines.

9. BOOST IMMUNITY

Rose oil is rich in antioxidants and polyunsaturated fatty acids, like linoleic acid, essential for preventing the breakdown of cell membranes in the skin. Vital, healthy cells act as a barrier to prevent bacteria from invading the skin, leading to outbreaks and infections.

Things to consider:

1. Always perform a skin patch test to check for allergies before using the oil for the first time.

1. Should not be ingested.

1. Keep away from kids.

1. Do not apply to pets.
