Rosehip Oil : Benefits, Forms, Uses And Side Effects

The Beauty Benefits Of Organic Rosehip Oil 

Sun exposure, acne and wounds can leave behind dark spots and scars making your skin look dull and uneven. One of the most effective natural remedies to target such hyperpigmentation is organic rosehip oil. 

Rosehip oil is extracted by pressing the seeds of organic rosehips. It is a potent skin care ingredient that is full of nutrients. The oil has a long history of use in the beauty industry and is a great source of nourishment for your skin. Rosehips are rich in Vitamins A and C, essential fatty acids, and various other antioxidants that help protect and repair your skin. 


Rosehip Oil Benefits For Skin Health 

1. Reduces Hyperpigmentation -

An increase in melanin production due to sun exposure, skin trauma, or hormonal changes can darken certain areas of the skin, leading to an uneven complexion. While organic rosehip oil has plenty of uses for your skin, most people are known to use rosehip oil for face clarity and brightening. It also helps to reduce post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH). 

2. Repairs Sun Damage -

Antioxidants in organic rosehip oil help fight free radical damage and repair sun damage. Hence, cold pressed rosehip oil is effective in reducing photodamage and dullness. 

3. Provides Anti-Ageing Benefits -

Being a rich source of Vitamin A, cold pressed rosehip oil is useful in preventing early signs of ageing. It helps to stimulate collagen synthesis and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. 

4. Prevents Dryness -

Cold pressed rosehip oil is a natural moisturiser. When used as a facial oil, it hydrates your skin and prevents dry patches and tightness. 


Rosehip Oil Benefits For Acne-Prone Skin 

1. Lightweight -

Rosehip oil is called a dry oil since it is lightweight in consistency. It gets absorbed easily into your skin and hence, it is suitable for acne-prone and oily skin. 

2. Non-Greasy -

Cold pressed rosehip oil helps replenish your skin with linoleic acid (Omega 3 fatty acids) and balance the sebum levels in your skin without making it appear greasy. 

3. Anti-Inflammatory -

Rosehip oil has anti-inflammatory properties which help soothe red, painful and inflamed acne. 

4. Brightening -

Cold pressed rosehip oil reduces acne scars and marks overtime, and also improves the natural tone and texture of your skin. 


How To Use Rosehip Oil? 

The best way to use rosehip oil is to use it as a facial oil. Cleanse your skin with a mild cleanser, and spray some organic hydrosol to hydrate your skin. Then take 2-3 drops of organic cold-pressed rosehip oil and massage it on damp skin. For best results, use it daily in your morning as well as your evening skin care routine.

 


How To Pick The Right Rosehip Oil For Face Care?

1. Cold Pressed Extraction -

Make sure that your rosehip oil is cold pressed. Cold pressed oils are extracted by mechanically pressing the seeds of a plant, without letting the temperature of the oil rise beyond 49℃. This ensures that all heat sensitive compounds of the oil remain intact.

2. Organic Source -

Make sure that the label of your rosehip oil bottle clearly mentions the words ‘certified organic’. Organic ingredients are grown using organic materials and nature-friendly techniques. They are effective for your skin and sustainable for our planet.

3. Purity Check -

100% pure rosehip oil has a light skin feel. It is deep orange or red in colour due to the presence of carotenoids. Diluted varieties of rosehip oil often have a yellow or light orange hue.

4. Protective Packaging -

Cold pressed rosehip oil is often stored in blue, amber or green tinted glass bottles to prevent it from getting oxidised quickly.
