Ward off the wrinkles with rosehip oil

Applying Rosehip Oil

Written by Laura Andrews, Skin Care and Holistic Lifestyle Expert

 

Rosehip oil is an often overlooked vegetable oil with a multitude of advantages. Mainly produced in Chile and Argentina, this pressed seed oil is extracted from the seeds of a rose bush and its uses range from scar treatment to reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

 

Anti-ageing

Rosehip oil is packed with Vitamin C antioxidants - which stimulate collagen production. (Yes, the very same thing celebrities inject themselves with!) This smoothes out our skin and leaves us with a youthful, wrinkle-free face. The oil is great at getting really deep into the skin, leaving the pours thoroughly moisturised. Vitamin A is also a rosehip component, another rich moisturiser and sworn fighter of the wrinkle.

 

Scar Treatment

Fatty acids are brilliant at improving skin flexibility and permeability, and thankfully rosehip oil is full of them! These acids encourage the skin to regenerate, which is perfect on scar tissue where skin needs support to heal. Vitamin A also helps with skin repair, owing to its ability to improve skin texture and tone.

 

Nails

Rosehip oil contains Vitamin A which is vital for strengthening the nail cells, making them less likely to chip or break. Nails grow faster and thicker with rosehip oil, as well as repairing quicker if the inevitable break does happen.

 

Good source of Vitamin C

According to a recent study published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, daily consumption of rosehip oil could cut the risk of heart disease. It is thought that rosehip lowers blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

 

Eczema, dermatitis and stretch marks

Rosehip oil gives the skin a really thorough nourish, completely re-hydrating the skin and allowing it to breathe. As well as being an essential oil for skin nourishment, rosehip oil generates new skin cells, making it a great cure for the damage caused by dermatitis, eczema and stretch marks.
