This pure oil is extraced from the 'hip' of a rose, which is the seed remaining once all the petals have fallen off. Rosehip oil has been used for years and has so many benifits for our skin.
Rosehip oil is best know for it's ability to aid in the healing of scars, especially those from psoriasis, chickenpox, eczema and acne. Rosehip has also proved to be a wonderful product in improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as it help to increase skin elasticity and resiliance. Stretch marks, uneven skin tone, premature aging and dry skin don't stand a chance against a few drops of this elixir of youth.
I use a few drops of rosehip as a moisturiser at night. My skin is naturally rather oily but interestingly enough, the rosehip actually help to balance sebum productions and helps to reduce the oilyness. It's also untra-nourishing for dry skins and as it is 100% natural, there are very few people who would ever have an adverse reaction to this product.
Rosehip oil contains a host of wonderful properties but of all, the most important is Vitamin A. Vitamin A is used in most anti-wrinkle or age-defying products because of it's ability to thicken and stimulate the dermis, reducing the appearance of wrinkles. It's important to note however that vitamin A can be photosensitive (affected by the sun) so use this product at night rather then during the day to avoid any excess pigmentation.
All in all this is a product that is suitable for everyone. Whether it's stretch marks on your thighs, acne scarring on your teenager, or fine lines around the eyes, Rosehip is the answer.
You only need a drop or two at a time so a little goes a long way. Rosehip is available at most health food stores.
