The amazing benefits of rosehip oil if added to your skincare routine

Our beautiful Hannah swears by using rosehip oil in her skincare routine! Find out some of the delicious benefits below. 

Moisturising

Rosehip oil can work as a great natural alternative for moisturising. It has nourishing fatty acids, which along with water, is the main ingredient in most moisturisers.

Treating Wrinkles
Rosehip oil is packed with beauty essentials like anti-inflammatory fatty acids and vitamins A and C. These ingredients allow rosehip oil to treat signs of aging and pigmentation, hydrate skin and repair damaged skin, and provide a strong protective antioxidant boost — all without the oily feel of a traditional liquid oil.


Brightening Skin

The astringent properties in rosehip oil help tighten your pores and brighten your skin, so adding into your skincare routine is great if your cheeks need a little brightening up. Start with a small quantity in your daily routine: patting a few drops on cleansed skin at bedtime. 

Evening Out Skin Tone
If you’e been struggling to even our your skin tone or have red blotches you’re looking to fade, this vitamin-packed oil is much easier on sensitive skin than harsh products with chemicals in, so rub it on clean, damp skin both mornings and evenings. 

Firming Skin
Rosehip oil may help your skin regain elasticity. Add a few drops to your face in the morning and again just before bed to help with fresh, younger-looking skin.

Fading Scars
The ultimate beauty ingredient trio - anti-inflammatory fatty acids and vitamins A and C - make this oil a potent solution for fading facial scars or marks. Together these help undo and prevent oxidative damage and help the skin re-build collagen. It can help fade skin hyperpigmentation and potentially minimise the appearance of fine lines and even stretch marks. 

Exfoliating Skin
Consider adding rosehip oil to your routine as a face wash. Similar to sugar and sea salt, rosehip seed oil can work as a natural exfoliator when combined with baking soda. But steer clear if your skin is acne-prone, as this oil can further irritate already forming blemishes or clog pores.
