Why You Need To Start Using Rosehip Oil On Your Skin And Hair ASAP

October 13, 2015 by Lisa Fogarty

Rosehip oil is currently all the rage in skincare and beauty--and for good reason. The oil, which is derived from the seeds of a specific rose called Rosa moschata, is made up of essential fatty acids and is packed with great-for-you vitamins like E, C and B-carotene.

Given how vitamin-rich it is, rosehip oil has quite a lot of beauty credits to its name. It can stimulate collagen production, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, add an incredible amount of hydration, improve skin texture and tone, help to relieve redness and irritation, and even work to fade sun spots. Got an unsightly scar that you can't stand? The oil's vitamin A and fatty acids actually help repair the skin and fade scars. And, unlike some other oils that seem to sit on top of your skin, this one is quickly absorbed into the skin, making it a perfect choice to use beneath your sunscreen and before foundation or powder. Just your everyday dream ingredient, right? Check out the most highly-rated rosehip oil products in the slideshow.
