Move over tea tree and Ashwagandha root as there is a new beauty ingredient that we’re obsessed with in town to do wonders for our skin. Our latest botanical love is Rose Hip Oil. Have you tried it yet?
Originating from the seed of the rose bush, the versatile, anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidising oil can help improve the look and feel of the skin and scalp and it’s a favourite of celebs like Miranda Kerr and Kate Middleton, and well just look at their glowy youthful skin.
But what can Rose Hip really do for you and your skin? Let’s start the long list…
It hydrates, moisturizes and plumps the skin.
It firms the skin by helping produce collagen.
It improves skin tone
It can help reduce hyperpigmentation
It reduces fine lines and wrinkles
It can reduce scars
It minimizes stretch marks
It can help eczema
Rose Hip doesn’t clog the skin and very rarely does it seem to cause break outs and reactions, but if you have sensitive skin do consult your derm or doctor before trying.
In terms of usage, apply the oil twice a day as part of your skincare regime.
