Loved by royalty and A-listers alike, we're looking into whether Rosehip Oil should be included as part of our beauty routines.
If you're unfamiliar with Rosehip Oil, and its many benefits for your skin, keep reading to find out if it might be the ingredient you've been looking for.
What is Rosehip Oil?
Rosehips are the fruit of a rosebush. When roses die and are left on the bush, they leave behind bright reddish-orange, spherical fruit. Rosehip Oil is a pressed oil that is derived from rosehips.
Benefits of Rosehip Oil for the skin
Prized since ancient times for its valuable healing benefits, Rosehip Oil is loaded with skin-nourishing vitamins and essential fatty acids. It also contains phenols that have been shown to have antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal properties.
* Regenerates and heals the skin: Because it contains high concentrations of vitamin A, B1, B2, B3, and K, Rosehip Oil is known for its exceptional regenerative and healing properties.
* Increases collagen production and skin elasticity: Research shows that after eight weeks, Rosehip Oil will lead to a significant improvement in crow's-feet wrinkles, the skin's moisture level, and elasticity.
* Assists in brightening and evening out the skin: Because it's rich in vitamin C, Rosehip Oil helps brighten the skin. It also helps decrease the appearance of hyperpigmentation.
* Fights free radicals: With high levels of vitamin C, Rosehip Oil can help with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, brighten skin, and help fight free radicals in the skin.
* Has skin restorative powers: A study proved that the use of Rosehip Oil on patients post-surgery improved the overall look of their scars.
* Intensely hydrates and moisturizes the skin: Including linoleic acid, as well as various other essential fatty acids, rosehip oil is the go-to for acute hydration. It also locks in moisture and is easily absorbed by the skin.
* Calms inflammation: Rich in vitamin E and anthocyanin—two ingredients that can calm and soothe irritation—Rosehip Oil can be hugely beneficial for those dealing with rosacea, eczema, and other inflammatory skin issues.
* Combats acne: For acne-prone skin, Rosehip Oil can be helpful because it has anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties, and it has low comedogenicity.
* Protection against sun damage: Cumulative damage from a lifetime of exposure to the sun plays a major role in premature aging. UV exposure can also interfere with the body’s ability to produce collagen. Rosehip oil contains antioxidants like vitamins A, C, and E. These vitamins have been shown to synergistically combat visible sun damage. They may also help prevent photoaging.
Rosehip Oil has a long history as a beauty product. It’s full of vitamins, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids that are all valued for their ability to nourish the skin.
Scientific studies showing Rosehip Oil’s promise make it an intriguing option for anyone looking to reduce the visible signs of aging, clear up scarring, or otherwise improve their beauty routine. Not only is it reasonably affordable and easy to use, it’s considered generally safe for all skin types.
