All About Oils: Rosehip Oil Spotlight
Week four of my All About Oils spotlight series is here, and today is going to be all about Rosehip Oil! There are so many things that I love about argan oil, from the benefits, to it's many uses, to it's delicious scent. Today I want to get in-depth on this fabulous oil, and why it might be the perfect addition to your skin care routine!
The Many Benefits of Rosehip Oil
Nourish & Rejuvenate Your Skin - rosehip oil is rich in vitamin A, which encourages cellular turnover, and subsequently acts as an anti-aging ingredient. Vitamin A is also known to help protect the skin from UV damage, and boost the skin's immune system.
Handle Hyperpigmentation - as if Vitamin A wasn't enough, rosehip oil delivers on the Vitamin C forefront, which is notorious for it's ability to fight dark spots on the skin. In these instances, you can either use the rosehip oil as a spot treatment, or as an all-over treatment, depending on your preference.
Deep Hydration - this nourishing oil is very hydrating, making it perfect for dry-skin users, or those with mature skin. Applying products that moisturize deep can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on aging skin. An extra added bonus: rosehip oil isn't super heavy, so it should not feel greasy when applied in the proper amounts.
Eczema Relief - if you deal with eczema or tough dry patches, you might want to look in the direction of rosehip oil. It is known to be calming, on top of moisturizing, meaning it can help soothe and nourish extremely dry skin. Of course, you want to talk to your medical esthetician or dermatologist before applying any product on irritated skin! And as always, perform a patch test before diving in full force.
Tame Your Tresses - when people think of oil for their hair, argan oil is usually the first thing that comes to mind. And while I absolutely love and endorse using argan oil as a hair treatment, rosehip oil is a great contender for those who want silkier, frizz-free locks. This nourishing oil will help infuse the hair shaft with moisture, while promoting smoothness and shine. What's not to love?!
Nourish Your Nails - if you nails or cuticles are feeling dry or brittle, rosehip oil can definitely come in handy. Simply use a dab on your index finger and spread it out to each nail on your hand. You will notice benefits immediately, with even more beautiful results over time.
Some Rosehip Product Picks - What I love about rosehip oil is that you can find it in so many different types of products. If you want the full-on oil experience, you cannot go wrong with Trilogy's Certified Organic Rosehip Oil. If you'd like to find products that feature rosehip oil alongside other beneficial ingredients, there are plenty! I absolutely love Eminence Organic's Rosehip Exfoliating Masque and iLike's Rosehip Whipped Moisturizer for a duo that helps to renew and replenish my skin.
