WHAT IS ROSEHIP OIL?
Rosehip oil is derived from roses. Manufacturers press and extract the oil from wild rose bushes that grow in the southern Andes, and then add the oil to skin care products or sell it by itself. The oil is a fabulous component of your skin care routine because it is full of beauty-boosting vitamin A, vitamin C and the essential fatty acids omega-3 and omega-6.
Like many natural oils, rosehip oil boasts a range of beauty benefits for the skin, hair and nails. But rosehip oil, unlike natural shea oil or cocoa butter, tends to absorb quickly and cleanly for a mess-free finish. If you add rosehip oil to your skin care routine, you can expect to see some of the following awesome benefits:
- Skin rejuvenation: Rosehip oil’s vitamin A is known to promote healthy skin cell rejuvenation, which causes skin to glow and appear fresh and supple. The rejuvenation works on normal skin and also skin damaged by scarring or the sun.
- Pigment reduction: The vitamin C in rosehip oil reduces the appearance of dark spots, aging spots and hyper-pigmentation. Apply the oil to the affected area to see a reduction in unsightly dark spots over time.
- Improved complexion: If you suffer from acne, dryness or eczema, rosehip oil will calm and moisturize your skin with regular application.
- Mess-free moisture retention: Rosehip oil packs a powerful punch of moisture for dry or mature skin, which can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles. And unlike other oils, the smooth and light texture of rosehip oil is unlikely to clog your pores.
Healthy nails: Nail health isn’t exactly a part of your skin care routine, but regularly dabbing a bit of rosehip oil on your nails and cuticles will prevent hangnails and nail breakage.
