Is rosehip oil the secret to a glowing complexion?
Written by Laura Andrews, Skin Care and Holistic Lifestyle Expert
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.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
