The advantages of Rosehip Oil are many and varied, ranging from moisturising skin, scar treatment, and anti-ageing properties to protection against sunburns. It can also be used to treat frizzy hair, and as a treatment against brittle nails. It is a versatile, natural product that is easily absorbed by the skin and is a great addition to many natural skincare products thanks to its beneficial properties derived from the high Vitamin A content and essential fatty acids. It can be used by itself as well; and you only need a few drops of Rosehip Oil to massage into your skin, so it is economical to use too.
Yes, Rosehip Oil is a wonderful product for your face, regardless of your age or skin type. It can safely be used on all parts of the body but when trialling any new skincare, it is always best to do a small skin test first to check if your skin is sensitive to any ingredients. With regular use, Rosehip Oil will give your skin a softer, plumper appearance with a youthful glow. One of the best things about Rosehip Oil is that it helps to even out skin tone, minimise blemishes, dark circles or pigmentation. The oil is easily absorbed by the skin and can therefore even be used by people with oily or combination skin.
The natural ingredients found in Rosehip Oil include essential fatty acids such as Omega-6 and Omega-3 which provide many benefits including protection against free radicals, promotion of healthy skin cell production and improvement in skin hydration. Essential fatty acids also help to plump up the skin and help it to retain moisture, thereby reducing wrinkles. The small molecules of the vitamin A in Rosehip Oil allow it to penetrate deeply into the skin, where new skin cells are being generated and collagen is being produced.
The essential fatty acids or EFA’s in Rosehip Oil can help to reduce scarring thanks to their cell renewal properties. Rosehip Oil has been known to improve stretch marks, acne scarring and pigmentation. It is a natural source of omega 3, 6, and 9 fatty acids, which help repair and regenerate damaged skin while reducing the appearance of scars. Clinical trials run in Chile by Dr Fabiola Carvajal Montiel in the 1980s showed marked improvements in patients suffering from facial scarring, acne scarring, deep wrinkles, UV damage, radiation damage, burn scars, surgical scars, premature aging, dermatitis, and other skin related problems after regular use of Rosehip Oil over a period of four months. Even old scars seemed to respond well to the treatment.
Rosehip Oil has long been recommended as an excellent natural treatment to help fade scars over time. In order to minimise scars, massage a few drops of Rosehip Oil onto the affected area twice a day. It may take several days to show results. Do keep in mind that Rosehip Oil can increase skin’s sensitivity to sun, so it is important to apply a sunscreen over it before heading out for the day.
Stretch marks are narrow streaks or lines that occur on the surface of the skin when it is stretched over a period of time. They are often red or purple to start with, before gradually fading to a silvery-white colour. Stretch marks are a common side-effect of pregnancy, but can also occur after rapid weight gain, during growth spurts in puberty, and as a result of some underlying health conditions. Rosehip Oil is considered a “dry” oil, which means that it is absorbed quickly by the skin and does not leave any sticky residue. Its ability to penetrate deeply into the skin means it can deliver nutrients where they are most needed. Simply put a few drops of Rosehip Oil in the palm of your hand, rub your palms together and gently massage into the affected area once or twice a day; allow at least 6 weeks of continuous usage to start seeing results.
