Whats the secret of Kates
Theres a new beauty must-buy in town and were told the Duchess of Cambridge swears by it
Want fawless, glowing skin just like the
Duchess of Cambridge? Well, now you can, as the 33-year-olds latest beauty secret doesnt come with a royal price tag. At just 16.50, Trilogys Certifed Organic Rosehip Oil is what Kates believed to use to correct any fne lines, wrinkles, stretch marks and scars.The fashion-forward royal is
said to have discovered the oil when she visited New Zealand last year and is now reaping its body benefts. Even her mother, Carole, 60, is a fan. Not only is rosehip rich in
omega 3, the versatile oil is said to restore elasticity and protect against sun damage
that can lead to wrinkles. Plus, it can also be used to de-frizz hair and tame split ends ideal for a mum like Kate who is known for her perfect locks.And it seems Kate cant get
enough of it. Even her facialist, Deborah Mitchell, is said to add rosehip oil to her therapy treatment. I add a drop to moisturiser to boost results Kate loves it because it adds a luminous glow, she reveals.
So soothingAnd the Duchess isnt alone. Mum-of-one model Miranda Kerr, 32, has created a version for her Kora Organics skincare line. I use rosehip oil at night, she says. Its so full of antioxidants that I wake up glowing. Bridesmaids actress Rose Byrne, 35, uses the oil on her sensitive skin. I suffer from rosacea and rosehip oil is so soothing, she admits.And its not just for us
ladies! M&S model David Gandy, 35, relies on it too.
I take 90-odd fights a year, so my skin gets dehydrated, but rosehip oil works wonders, he says.
So why is it so good? Rosehip is a dry oil, so it penetrates to the skins deep layers where it regenerates
skin cells, producing more collagen and elastin, explains aromatherapist Denise Leicester. Its so light, you can apply a small amount over make-up to perk up skin.
Gently healing The Duchess may have given it buzz status but rosehip oil is not new. Rosehips were used by ancient Egyptians, Mayans and Native Americans, says celeb facialist Joanna Vargas. The beauty industry is turning to these healing ingredients as an alternative to the chemicals we usually rely on.And if its gentle enough for
new mum Kate to use, then well defnitely give it a try.
