The rise of Rosehip Oil

Rosehip Oil is a well known tool for everyday bodycare, but it seems that even celebrities cannot get enough of this essential oil lately.


Victoria’s Secret model Miranda Kerr is familiar with trying to stay in peak physical condition and has recently exclaimed her love for this fragrant natural oil. In an interview with BellaSugarTV she claimed that she uses rosehip oil for her face to boost her complexion.


Miranda, who has previously raved about the benefits of coconut oil, told reporters that being a mother she has less time to spend on her skin and therefore using an all-encompassing skincare solution such as rosehip oil can work on multiple areas. She said: "I like to wear rosehip oil at night. It’s full of that many antioxidants and it really works on a cellular level too to rejuvenate the skin. I put that on at night and wake up glowing."


The rose oil is traditionally produced in Chile and is extracted from the seeds of rosebushes, which are native to the southern Andes. Miranda adds on her blog that this is a product that "every woman should have in her handbag" and one she will continue to use throughout her life


She added that not only does she use it as a moisturiser but also as a makeup remover around the eyes. Rosehip oil is often referred to as nature’s first aid kit when it comes to skincare, as it is rich in essential fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamins and is easily absorbed.


Rose oil benefits for the skin

It has been known to smooth wrinkles, evening out skin tone and reducing the appearance of scars and blemishes. This light oil has the ability to soothe and moisturise dry skin, keeping it balanced and hydrated - which is a must during the summer months, when warm, dry weather threatens to strip skin of its natural moisture.
