Rosehip Oil is a truly remarkable natural ingredient with effective skin-nourishing benefits that are AMAZING for your skin! I recently found this magical ingredient when I was researching recipes to make my own face cream and the benefits are….WOW! It is an expensive ingredient to add, so I went a step further and made my own to use as the anti aging ingredient in my new product! I have very sensitive skin and have been using this cream with my homemade rosehip oil for over a week and honestly, I’M IN LOVE! ❤❤❤ The picture above brings you straight to etsy to order my non toxic, anti-aging face cream! Let’s jump right into the benefits of rosehip oil and why it should be an ingredient in your facial moisturizer!
What is Rosehip Oil?
Rosehip oil is derived from the rosa canina rose bush, which is grown mostly in Chile. Unlike rose oil, which is extracted from rose petals, rosehip oil is pressed from the fruit and seeds of the rose plant. Praises 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!!! Rosehip oil is often used as a carrier oil for essential oils which are too intense to put on your skin directly. It is also a very incredible ingredient to add into skincare products.
Benefits of Rosehip Oil:
1. Treats Wrinkles And Firms Skin
This amazing oil has anti-aging benefits
due to its antioxidant property. It is high in vitamin A and Vitamin C which are the perfect nutrients needed to remove fine lines and wrinkles. Retinoic acid (Vitamin A) and Vitamin C are important to cell production and growth. They also stimulate fibroblasts, the cells that are responsible for developing tissue that keeps skin firm and healthy, in the deep layers of your skin.
2. Moisturize, Brightens and Hydrates Skin
Rosehip oil has a high content of essential fatty acids and is a perfect skin hydration tool. The oil can penetrate due to the vitamin A, which has small enough molecules to go deeper into the skin and improves the skin’s moisture levels. It is a natural source of vitamin E, an anti-inflammatory antioxidant that calms and hydrates dry and sensitive skin.
3. Fades Scars
The essential fatty acids in rosehip oil help improve the appearance of scars and marks on the skin. They may also be able to promote skin regeneration, which can help new skin growth. Rosehip oil 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. It is also effective in helping with acne!
4. Removes Age Spots and Dark Spots
A natural source of the powerful antioxidants lycopene, which helps improve skin texture and offer protection against premature aging, and beta-carotene, which helps prevent free-radical damage responsible for skin aging and the pigmentations (like age spots or dark spots). The high levels of Trans-Retinoic Acid are delivered directly to the epidermis of the skin, which converts to Vitamin A to boost the skin’s natural healing process. The vitamin A, combined with the oil’s essential fatty acids, can help improve skin tone, texture, and pigmentation. While too much sun exposure can decrease collagen, vitamin C can help counteract this damage. The oil is deeply moisturizing and aids in removing redness and irritation.
5. Helps with Eczema and Facial Rosacea
Eczema and rosacea are mainly characterized by redness, irritation and dry skin. Rosehip oil is deeply moisturizing to soothe the appearance of redness and irritation. The antioxidant content may also help combat facial flushing, persistent redness, bumps and pimples, and visible blood vessels. The essential fatty acids in rosehip oil are emollients, which improve the skin’s flexibility and permeability and help the skin repair itself due to skin regenerative property. This benefit, alone, is why I use it in my facial moisturizer! 😊
