Rosehip Oil is a miracle in a jar. That’s not something I’d say lightly. Made popular by stunning models and beautiful actresses with perfect skin citing this as their secret to a clear complexion, Rosehip Oil really does live up to all the expectations.
Packed with Vitamins A, E and C, omega fatty acids and antioxidants, you can’t go wrong. Rosehip Oil rejuvenates and restores skin by helping to fade scars, heal sun damage and nourish aged or mature skin. It’s a one stop shop for natural skincare.
After cleansing my face at night with Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser, I apply two or three pumps of this to my face. I give it about ten minutes to settle, at which point it soaks right into my dehydrated skin, and then I go over it with my Clinique’s Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion and my Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado around the eye area. You can also use it to replace moisturizer if you want to go the au naturel route.
Acne scars that used to fade after about a month now fade in half the time. My skin texture is noticeably smoother and any dry patches that used to appear on my forehead have disappeared. If I get sunburn from forgetting to wear SPF before walking my dog in the morning, I apply a little extra oil and allow it to soothe my skin. I’ve even seen some improvements in the fine lines at the corners of my eyes that appear when I smile.
Additionally, Rosehip Oil can also help tend to dull hair and scalp problems. I’ve only used it on my ends once or twice, but it works well to soften hair and calm any fuzzy, frizzy pieces that refuse to cooperate.
You can find Rosehip Oil at most natural stores. I buy Aura Cacia Organic Rosehip Oil at Whole Foods for about $12, but you can also order it off the internet for less. The 1 fl oz jar tends to last about two months of every day (once a day) use, and this organic brand gives back some of their earnings to the hardworking farmers who make products like these possible.
The pump packaging is especially convenient, allowing me to deliver the oil directly onto my skin and minimize spreading bacteria. Because it’s a dry oil, you can even use it in the morning without having to face the day with greasy skin. Instead, you’ll look refreshed and downright glowy. You can tell anyone who asks that it’s your secret to perfect skin too.
