The benefits of rosehip oil

Rosehip oil is absolutely great to use on your skin, and yet a lot of people don’t know about it. I use an organic, cold-pressed rosehip oil on my skin as a natural moisturiser every night after I take off my makeup, and here’s why!

– It is full of antioxidants such as vitamin A, vitamin C and vitamin E which protect your skin from aging, sun damage and free radicals.

– It is high in essential fatty acids including omega 3 which help to retain your skin’s youthfulness and vitality, encouraging cell regeneration and collagen production.

– It is often used as a treatment for skin issues such as eczema, acne, sunburn, photo-aging and scars. In fact, using rosehip oil on the skin every day for 5 months visibly reduces sun damage to your skin- one of the only treatments that actually reverse photo-aging!

– It also contains tannin which helps to reduce the size of large pores.

I would recommend you go for an organic, cold-pressed rosehip oil in a glass bottle to maximise the benefits you will get from this wonderful moisturiser. Make sure you put the lid on after you’ve used it each time and use it up within 6 months so it retains its nutrients.

Do you use rosehip oil? What do you think?
