Rosehip is blooming everywhere these days! But do you really know how this superfood ingredient benefits your skin?
Rosehip oil is harvested from the seeds of rose bushes grown in Chile and is full of vitamin A and E, antioxidants and high levels of hydrating fatty acids. Contrary to popular belief, this oil doesn't smell like roses! It's actually unscented, so those sensitive to fragrance don't be afraid!
Can rosehip oil help with acne?
Rosehip oil is high in linoleic acid, which is ideal for acne prone skin types. It also has astringent properties which can help tighten pores, brighten skin and fade acne scars.
Can rosehip oil be used as a moisturizer?
This nourishing oil can also be used as a moisturizer since it's so full of hydrating fatty acids. It’s highly moisturizing since vitamin A is able to penetrate deeply into the skin and improve skin’s moisture levels; and vitamin E is an anti-inflammatory antioxidants that calms and hydrates dry skin. Apply a few drops all over for a natural looking glow.
