It’s not a secret that Rosehip Oil is an efficient anti-ageing treatment used by many skincare brands. However, rosehip oil is so much more than just an anti-ageing warrior. From stretch marks to acne, we outline below why this fruit will blow your mind (and love your skin).
WHAT IS ROSEHIP OIL?
Rosehip Oil is pressed from the seeds of an amber berry-like fruit that grows wild on rose bushes (and is left behind after the rose has flowered and dropped its petals).
Surprisingly, just like olive oil, there are different grades of rosehip oil available on the market. It is important to look for cold pressed oils, because heat destroys valuable components of the anti-oxidants. A deep golden orange colour means that nothing is taken out or nothing is added in.
Did you know it takes 210,000 Rosehip seeds to produce 30 ml of Rosehip oil?
WHAT ARE THE SKIN-LOVING BENEFITS OF ROSEHIP OIL?
Vitamin C for Collagen Production & Even Skin Tone
Naturally, your skin produces less collagen as you age, accompanied with some fine lines. Rosehip contains more Vitamin C than any fruit and vegetable. As Vitamin C is rich in antioxidants, it aids the process of cell renewal and stimulates collagen production. This in turn provides a brighter, tighter and a more even skin tone (bye bye red blotches).
Fatty Acids Omega 3, 6 & 9 Support Healthy Looking Skin
These babies are important when it comes to repairing skin, especially for our Aussie climate. Over exposure to the sun can cause dryness and damage to the skin. Fatty Acids encourage healthy cell turnover, which means they repair certain skin conditions such as; skin pigmentation, scarring, stretch marks, eczema and sun damaged skin tissue.
Antioxidants to fight signs of ageing*High five*
Rosehip oil is naturally packed with Vitamin C, A & E, known to nourish and hydrate the skin as well as repair skin elasticity. It acts as a sunscreen sidekick by repairing damaged cells and protecting it from further free radical damage. Pop it on under your sunscreen and you’ve got yourself two sun protecting warriors.
Vitamin E to Calm & Hydrate Skin
Yes, even your skin needs to ‘cool it’ at times. The anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory powers in Vitamin E are able to moisturize and reduce redness, irritations and signs of acne. Amen!
IS ROSEHIP OIL SUITABLE FOR ALL SKIN TYPES?
Yes, it is! Rosehip oil can be use by any age and any skin type. It has a super fine consistency, so it is absorbed quickly and easily without clogging your pores. Don't forget the golden rule, oil absorbs oil, so Rosehip Oil IS suitable for oily skin.
HOW DO I SNEAK THIS MULTI-TASKING GEM INTO MY SKINCARE REGIME?
You can use it twice a day after cleansing. Add 1 - 2 drops of Organic Cold Pressed Rosehip Oilto the palms of your hand and massage gently on damp face and neck, or mix it with your moisturiser or foundation.
