What are the skin benefits of rose hip oil?
With regular use, rosehip oil is really a skin saver.
Thanks to its incredibly high concentration of omegas 3, 6, 7 and 9, which promote skin repair and regeneration, it can be used to treat scars, blemishes and dull skin tone.
How it works …
Blemishes and acne
Using an oil on already oily skin may not seem intuitive – but an intense burst of nutritious omega is often just what the skin needs to restore that clear, healthy glow.
If you use products that remove all of your oils, you panic and cause more sebum than normal to make up for the deficit. The more oil you remove, the more your skin produces.
If you add a little oil to your skin, you say that it has enough oil and can slow down your own oil production. In our independent consumer study *, 81% of users reported improvement in blemishes.
For this reason, it is ideal for youthful skin (especially for acne scars). However, be sure to apply less and introduce slowly. Start with one or two drops a week and increase if the skin responds well.
Thanks to its high concentration of omegas and carotenoids, rosehip oil helps to improve the scar pattern.
Omegas fuel the skin's regeneration process and replace damaged cells with healthy new ones.
The high concentration of fatty acids in rosehip oil, especially omega 6, is the key to its success – skin cells need omega 6 to produce the compounds necessary to heal scar tissue.
Carotenoids are powerful antioxidants that have been shown to help repair skin damage.
Due to the special extraction process that we use ( more here ), our rose hip organic regeneration oil is filled with twice as many regenerative sterols and five times more carotenoids than your average cold pressed rosehip seed oil.
Aside from the ingredients, regular use of rose hip bio-regenerating oil can relieve the physical tension in the skin and help smooth out more voluminous scars (known as hypertrophy) The formation of keloid or lump scars and the reduction in redness of other scars.
The combination of fatty acids (including oleic acid, palmitic acid, linoleic acid and linolenic acid) and vitamin A from rosehip oil can help improve skin texture and pigmentation.
For this reason, many people use it to create a more even complexion and to combat hyperpigmentation.
How to use it
Using the rosehip organic regeneration oil is really easy.
Apply 2-3 drops to the palm of your hand and massage them gently with your fingertips into the clean, slightly damp skin on your face or body.
For best results, we recommend using oils at bedtime at night so that they can work on your skin during sleep and before you apply moisturizer or day cream in the morning.
