ROSEHIP OIL USES FOR SKIN
Rosehip oil has many uses for your skin.
ROSEHIP OIL USES: MOISTURISING
Rosehip Oil Benefits your skin as a soothing, emollient which is very light weight and easily absorbed oil, reducing moisture loss from the skin with its high EFA essential fatty acids including Omega 6 (linoleic acid) and Omega 3 (Alpha-linolenic acid) which rebuilds the skin’s barrier function. Ideal for all skin types including oily and sensitive skins
ROSEHIP OIL USES: TO TREAT AGING SKIN
Rosehip oil can be used as a serum to treat aging skin. The oil’s benefits contain palmitic and stearic acid, which are skin identical emollients that decrease significantly in our skin as we age. Rose hip oil contains all-trans retinoic acid (retinoic acid) Vitamin A, used to treat sun damaged skin and shown to stimulate collagen production, improving skin texture and firmness.
ROSEHIP OIL TO TREAT PIGMENTATION SCARS AND WOUND HEALING
There are numerous studies which show that Rosehip oil uses can reduce scarring and hyperpigmentation, regenerating cells in wound healing, and smoothing out scars. Rosehip oil is proven effective in repairing acne scars as well as other forms of skin blemishes and scars.
ROSEHIP OIL USES: PROTECTING THE SKIN
Β-Carotene (provitamin A), Vitamin E and Lypocene are antioxidants found in rosehip oil that combat free radicals that cause sun damage. Free radicals destroy collagen and elastin, which cause wrinkles and aging.
ROSEHIP OIL SKIN PRIMER
Use Rosehip oil as a facial primer, apply the oil to a damp face before you apply your makeup, ensuring a smooth and even finish.
ROSEHIP OIL FOR HAIR
Rosehip oil uses include a treatment that benefits dry and damaged hair. Massage the rosehip oil thoroughly into dry hair and scalp, wrap up with a warm towel for 20 mins, then wash as normal.

HOW TO USE ROSEHIP OIL
A few drops of oil is all you need, best applied to a clean damp face alone as a moisturiser or layered with your moisturiser ( oil first then moisturiser) or a couple of drops mixed with your moisturiser before applying to your skin. Use morning and evening.
CERTIFIED ORGANIC ROSEHIP OIL
I would recommend high-quality Certified organic rosehip oil, as it is better for your health and environment. There are many brands available that use certified organic rosehip oil. Choose virgin cold pressed organic or better still organic Co2 extract, which allows less oxidation and yields more beneficial sterols. Make sure an antioxidant has been added, examples are vitamin E or Rosemary extract, as organic rosehip oil properties are fragile to oxidation. Choose oils in dark containers with pumps again to protect oxidation.
Organic Rosehip oil can be extracted from the seeds or the whole fruit including seeds. The latter contains more Vitamin E and beta carotene which lends itself to a darker red-orange colour.
