Vouched by A-listers like Victoria Secret Model Miranda Kerr (her skin is PORELESS!), Rosehip Oil is soon to kick the universal favourite and our oil-next- door, Coconut oil out of your beauty cabinets. Rosehip Oil – an elixir of youth loaded with vitamins and antioxidants to calm and smoothen the biggest organ of your body, your skin.
Harvested from the seeds of rose bushes, and is full of vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids that can make magic happen for your face. However, like many natural/organic products, Rosehip oil may or may not work for your skin or may take longer to show results on your skin considering the state it is in pre-use.
If you’re already convinced that should chuck out the uncountable bottles filled with useless goop that hardly delivers what it says and stock up on Rosehip oil, here is a list of some out of many benefits of Rosehip oil for your skin.
If you’re all things organic like us, Rosehip oil is fuss-free alternative to your daily moisturizer. It has nourishing fatty acids that hug your skin, help it retain its moisture and get some more all at the same time. Since the sunny season has come upon us and the sweatfest has begineth (that’s not a word), Rosehip oil is an easy, breezy and absorbent alternative to your heavy moisturizers, coconut oil or shea butter.
Scar tissue treatment:
The essential fatty acids in rose hip seed oil can help reduce scarring by promoting tissue regeneration. Essential fatty acids are emollients, which improve skin flexibility and also speed up the journey of skin repair. Rosehip oil is also bursting with the goodness of Vitamin A which also plays a part in healing scar tissue due to its ability to improve skin texture and tone.
Wrinkles be gone:
Rosehip oil is packed with gifts from the nature, like anti-inflammatory fatty acids and vitamins A and C. These ingredients speed up collagen production making Rosehip oil an A-grade natural remedy to treat signs of aging and pigmentation, hydrate skin and repair damaged skin and give your skin that strong anti-oxidant oomph!
The astringent properties in Rosehip Oil along with them lightening and brightening goodness of Vitamin C, tighten those larger-than- Africa pores and brighten your skin. With a comedogenic rating of 1 (A comedogenic rating tells us how likely it is that an ingredient or oil will clog pores with 0 being the lowest and 5 being the highest), Rosehip oil is also great for acne-prone skin (I need a moment to wipe my tears!)
Age is just a number: Tips for women with mature skin
Don’t let fine lines, wrinkles, age spots and crow’s feet dull your shine. We’ve outlined the five basic changes you need to make in your life today for healthy, youthful looking skin.
Use an egg white mask
Egg white is packed with omega-3 fatty acids, proteins, and zinc, making it a tried and tested anti-aging beauty trick. It is known to tighten the pores leaving your skin firm and smooth. Take a teaspoon of honey and one raw egg (just the white – no yolk), and mix it till you have a smooth and consistent texture. Spread this mask onto your face and neck and relax for fifteen minutes. Rinse it off with lukewarm water and pat your skin dry with a clean towel.
Invest in a good anti-aging day cream
After the age of 25, your skin needs a bit more TLC. Invest in a good day moisturizer with anti-aging properties. Try Pond’s Age Miracle for a hydration boost and to prevent fine lines and wrinkles before time.
Use a cream blush and highlighter
Nothing says youthful glow than a flush across the cheeks and that lit-from-within glow. When you go makeup shopping and take your time to pick what really suits your skin. Mature skin loses its elasticity so it’s best to pick cream blush or strobe cream to prevent a dry and cakey appearance.

Massage your face
A nighttime skin regimen may seem trivial but the results will work wonders in the long run. Use a cleanser or oil and massage your face upwards to tighten loose skin and give your face a lifted look. Massaging helps exercise your face muscles and stops them from drooping. Make sure your cleanser or oil has a good dose of Vitamin C so that you can also boost collagen production while you massage your face.
Summer skincare regime in under Rs. 1,000
- Cleanse regularly
With sunny season going SPARTA on our skin it is necessary to have a facewash in your beauty regime that only removes oil from your face but also gives deep cleansing to your pores. Our two favourite this season are Pond’s White Beauty Facewash for everyday use and Pond’s Pure White with Activated Charcoal for that deep cleaning people with trouble skin really need on a regular basis.
- Moisturise your hair
You’d be surprised just how much cotton pillowcases and air-conditioning damages your hair. If you’re on a budget, choose a shampoo that not only cleanses your scalp, but also provides moisture to your hair like Dove Nourishing Oil Care Shampoo.
- Give your body some TLC
Summer is the season when your body needs you the most from inside and out. Perspiration, body odour and open pores can all lead to irritated, angry skin. Toss out drying soaps and go for something more moisturizing and fragrant like Lux Moisturising Soft Touch Bodywash that leaves a subtle, rosey scent on your skin, making you feel like a luxurious queen for hours.
- Embrace the BB cream life
Nothing irritates your skin more in summers that heavy makeup that is loaded with all sorts of wack stuff that is not all-that-great for your skin. Go easy, breezy and flawless this summer with Fair & Lovely BB Cream that is bursting with the goodness of micro vitamins that improve the overall health of your skin and SPF 15+ that acts as a shield between you and the big blazing yellow guy in the sky.
