5 Key Benefits Of Skin Loving Rosehip Oil

5 Key Benefits Of Skin Loving Rosehip Oil

Rosehip oil - historically used by the Egyptians - is currently enjoying a revival. Full of antioxidants and vitamins, this hardworking ingredient can now be found in many beauty products, from serums to lip balms. Still confused as to how and why it benefits the skin? We discover the facts, plus its five key benefits, with the help of skincare aficionado Tata Harper….

1. It’s Very Multi-Purpose   

There isn’t much rosehip oil can’t help you with. It has proven anti-aging benefits, such as minimising wrinkles and fading dark spots, brightening and evening out skin tone, moisturising and softening skin. All of these benefits come from naturally occurring nutrients and essential fatty acids like Omega 3 and 6. These Omegas help to keep the skin barrier healthy and strong, while also softening and moisturising skin. It’s brilliant at preventing moisture loss too, so ideal pre or post-flight.  

2. It Super Boosts The Skin’s Barrier  

Healthy skin is happy skin and the natural lipid-rich oil components of rosehip help make your skin look healthier and plump, while protecting against environmental aggressors. It boosts collagen, cell regeneration, barrier strength, and moisture, all of which help skin to look and feel more youthful over time, improving the visible appearance of tightness. Apply it as the very last step in your routine, allowing it to act as a sealant, locking in all the goodness of the products underneath so everything works most efficiently. Try patting it on gently with your fingers for the best effect, smooth any excess over the back of your hands and onto your cuticles. 

3. Rosehip Oil Fades Wrinkles Over Time 

It really can help minimise your wrinkles. This is because it is a highly potent natural source of vitamin A, which is a natural form of retinol that boosts collagen production and cellular regeneration to smooth and minimise the appearance of wrinkles over time. It’s also loaded with beauty anti-inflammatory fatty acids and antioxidants for an overall protective boost.  

4. It Increases Cell Turnover Fast   

Rosehip can help to even out skin tone. The naturally occurring levels of vitamin C promote cellular turnover, which helps to bring newer, healthier and brighter skin cells to the surface to reduce hyperpigmentation. Cell turnover effectively removes the older, pigmented skin cells from the top layer of the skin so that the new, brighter skin cells are able to come to the surface, in turn, making your complexion look more even toned and radiant. 

5. Rosehip Works Quickly To Fade Scars & Acne  

The naturally occurring fatty acids and antioxidants in Rosehip Seed Oil are essential parts of cell and tissue regeneration, which helps to fade scars over time. It’s also well known for its anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory benefits, which not only calms and reduces acne, but soothes redness and irritation fast. Then you have the retinoid effect of vitamin A which promotes cell turnover, reducing follicular plugging and the formation of blackheads along the way. For some, it’s even worked to minimise the appearance of stretch marks, so it certainly can’t hurt to try.
