Rose Hip Oil
An underrated ingredient - Pure Rose Hip oil.
Pure Rose Hip Oil is an unsung skincare hero ingredient and extremely underrated in my opinion.
Pure Rose Hip oil is extremely rich in Vitamin A, C, D & E. Beta Carotene an excellent source of trans-retinoic acid - provitamin A, a ‘natural’ form of Vitamin A. It Contains higher levels of essential fatty acids (EFA’s) such as Omega 6 and Omega 3. This is a barrier function replenishing Lipid making it an ideal ingredient for barrier health. it should appear as a deep orange colour - this is what you should be looking for for an effective facial oil.
This oil in its purest form contributes to restoring and repairing damaged skin tissue, it helps to reduce fine lines and restores firmness. In a 2 year study Rose Hip oil when used consistently has shown to ‘produce effective regenerative action in the skin’ and ‘the most significant results were recorded in photoaged skin - skin damaged by excess exposure to sunlight’.
I personally use pure Rose Hip oil on an evening over my moisturiser as the last step in my evening skincare routine. This is what works best for my skin, I can’t rave about it enough - it’s insane!
