The Magic of Rosehip Oil
By Donna Kostiew
Have you been looking for an all-natural beauty secret that improves the health and appearance of your skin? Are you trying to avoid the use of chemicals or Botox? Look no further than rosehip oil. Rosehip oil may be the perfect answer to what you are looking for because of its skin rejuvenating properties. It is full of Vitamins A and C, antioxidants, and the essential fatty acids omega-3 and omega-6. It is completely natural and is a safe solution to repair the health of your skin.
What is Rosehip Oil?
Rosehip oil is derived from the seeds of a very specific variety of rose. The oil is separated from the hips and seeds of this flower through a cold-press extraction and then added to skin care products or sold on its own. And like many natural oils do, rosehip oil offers a full range of beauty benefits for the skin, hair, and nails. By adding rosehip oil to your skin care routine, you can expect to see some of the following benefits.
- Reduces dark and aging spots
- Hydrates and moisturizes dry, itchy skin
- Reduces fine lines and scars
- Promotes skin cell rejuvenation
- Stimulates collagen production
- Improves skin tone
- Improves nail health
- Boosts immune system
- Helps reduce osteoarthritis
- Regenerates skin on a cellular level
Rosehip oil is becoming more popular and is setting itself up to become the next miracle beauty oil. This oil is amber in color and has been used since ancient times by Egyptians, Mayans, and Native Americans for its healing properties. It is a lightweight “dry” oil that soaks into your skin quickly and doesn’t leave behind any greasy residue, so unlike other oils, it is unlikely to clog your pores.
So if you come across the words “rosehip oil“ while studying the list of ingredients on your skincare products, don’t worry. It’s a good thing. But make sure you know how to store it at home. If you purchase a skincare product with rosehip oil added, and it comes with its own set of storage instructions, then follow them. Otherwise, it should generally be kept in a cool, dark location as it is very delicate and can easily go rancid. So take good care of it, and in return, it will help to take good care of you.
