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 still not 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 moisturiser. 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 moisturisers, 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!)
