Also known as Rosehip seed oil, Rosehip oil is pressed from fruit and seeds of the rose plant. It is full of vitamins, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids that are beneficial for skin health. It is a common oil used in Chile, but over time, it has become popular all over the world.
This carrier oil is rich in vitamins A & E. It improves the appearance of your skin. The hydrating and gentle qualities can be used to treat a range of skin conditions from stretch marks, age spots, and many more. It is considered a 'dry' oil as it absorbs into the skin easily without leaving an oily residue. The gentle composition of the oil allows it to be readily applied onto the skin undiluted.
Its colour can indicate the quality and concentration of the essential fatty acids and beta-carotene present in the oil. It is usually the colour that ranges from golden hue to a rich reddish orange that indicates a high quality, pure, cold-pressed rosehip oil whilst an oil that has a pale yellow to almost clear colour indicates that it may have been heavily processed.
SKIN BENEFITS OF ROSEHIP OIL
HYDRATED AND MOISTURISED SKIN
Most people who are using rosehip oil regularly don’t have dry skin. This is what the benefit of rosehip oil is known for because of the fatty acids it contains. Rosehip oil is an effective emollient and moisturiser. It contains high levels of omega-3 (linolenic acid) and omega-6 (linoleic acid) which can effectively soften skin (by hydrating it) and improve its barrier function (by moisturising it).
Although seemingly counterintuitive as an oil and sometimes thought to be not suitable for skin prone to acne, the oil is actually an ideal natural oil intended for blemished skin. Particularly, Omega-6 is helpful for such skin types.
Rosehip oil is packed with essentials that help fight ageing and pigmentation. It provides that strong protective antioxidant boost without the oily feel. Furthermore, the oil consists of Ceramides that assist the skin in looking younger. The human skin naturally has ceramides but these fatty acids are lost over time. This oil can help prevent the visible appearance of ageing such as wrinkles and dark pigmented areas.
Since Rosehip oil contains the antioxidants that combat sun damage, this oil is beneficial against sun protection as it prevents the drying effects caused by the sun. However, it shouldn’t be used as a replacement for sunscreen. It is advisable to apply an ample amount of the Rosehip oil a few minutes before using sunscreen allowing it to permeate on the skin and give that added sun protection.
REMINDER: Always perform a patch test as a precaution before using the oil.
