Benefits Of Rose Hip Oil

- Anti-Aging Properties

Rosehip oil has significant anti-aging benefits for your face. Super light and non-greasy, the anti-aging benefit comes from its high antioxidant content and the oil's ability to penetrate into deeper layers of the skin where it can improve moisture levels and reduce visible signs of aging. Collagen production naturally slows down as we age, but thanks to the high vitamin C content of rosehips, this is an oil that can actually help to stimulate collagen production in the skin.

- Protection From Age Spots

The UV rays of the sun can damage the skin, resulting in age spots and hyperpigmentation on the face. The antioxidants found in rosehip oil, especially the combination of vitamin C and vitamin E, can help to combat free radicals that cause sun damage. These antioxidants can actually reduce the overproduction of pigment in skin, which is exactly what leads to uneven tone and age spots.

- Helps With Stretch Marks And Reduces Acne Scarring

The essential fatty acids found in rosehip oil can help get rid of scars and reduce the appearance of stretch marks by promoting skin regeneration. When applied topically, the essential fatty acids act as emollients helping to soften the skin while also increasing hydration.

Rosehip oil may also help with cases of eczema thanks to its emollient status which means it can provide a protective barrier to the skin while also smoothing out flakiness. The oil can also help to reduce dry scalp and itchiness that are often caused by chemicals in most store-bought shampoos.
