Beauty and Anti-Ageing Uses for Rosehip Oil

Rosehip oil is a very popular beauty product that can be used by people of any age and skin type. It absorbs quickly, is scentless and does not leave a residue on the skin. But what exactly are the beauty and anti-ageing benefits of rosehip oil? This article covers all uses of rosehip oil, some that you may not of thought of, to help improve skin texture and aid in anti-ageing tips such as reducing wrinkles.

Rosehip oil is oil pressed from the rose hip buds and is widely used in skincare by many people due to its softening and anti-ageing properties. It can be used by any skin type, oily to dry, and by anybody with young or mature skin. It is absorbed easily and does not leave behind a greasy residue - perhaps these are some of the reasons for its popularity. There are many uses for rosehip oil, and these include:

Anti-ageing uses

Rosehip oil is full of antioxidants, fatty acids and vitamins so it can help to moisturise and replenish skin.

  • Use rosehip oil as a serum under your moisturizer. Rosehip oil is very thick and you will only require 4-5 drops.
  • If you feel as if that using a whole layer of rosehip oil on your face would be too oily for your skin, add one or two drops of rosehip oil to your moisturizer at night for a boost of hydration.
  • Give yourself a facial massage with rosehip oil. Remember to be very gentle and avoid tugging at skin. Massage helps to stimulate skin cells and brings blood to the surface of your skin, resulting in a healthy glow.

Skin moisturizer

The principal benefit of using rosehip oil is for its moisturizing properties, in my opinion. It does wonders for your skin and can leave even the driest skin baby soft.

  • Use rosehip oil in place of your regular moisturizer. This may feel a little tight on your skin if it is very dry.
  • Apply rosehip oil all over your face straight after a shower as soon as you dry your face (your skin may be a little damp). This helps to lock in moisture right after a shower or bath.

Lightening scars/pigmentation

If you suffer from age spots, scars from pimples or pigmentation, rosehip oil can help to fade scars or any marks on the skin. This is because rosehip oil increases the skin's capacity to produce new skin cells.

  • Massage rosehip oil into the skin, paying extra attention to any marks you would like to get rid of.

Uses for hair

Rosehip oil can even be used on the hair to boost moisture or repair damage. This is especially important if you frequently use heat styling products such as blow dryers or hair irons.

  • Placing a few drops of rosehip oil in your hands, rub your palms together to warm up and distribute the oil.
  • Smooth your hands over any damaged part of your hair - the roots and the ends are typically the most damaged, however you can use it all over your hair for a moisture boost.
  • Ensure you only use a few drops at a time - a little goes a long way!

A bonus extra: lip softener

When you use rosehip oil on your skin, you might find that you have a little leftover residue.Rubbing this into your lips will not only smooth and soften them, you won't have to worry about wasting that last drop of oil!

Important notice: If you're using rosehip oil daily, make sure you apply sunscreen every day as it will make your skin more sensitive to sunlight.
