The Benefits of Rose Hip Oil

You might be surprised at the benefits of Rose Hip Oil for your skin.  

Rose Hip oil is one of those under-appreciated skin care products that can so often be overlooked for the more high-tech, peptide ingredient, expensive night creams or face masks.  If you haven't tried Rose Hip oil in your skin care regime, it's time to give this humble oil a chance.

Benefits of Rose Hip Oil:

The oil is extracted from the fruit or hip of the rose and is an excellent source of Vitamin C.  Rose Hips have been used since ancient times in herbal teas, and ointments for medicinal purposes.  They are thought to be richer in Vitamin C than many citrus fruits, along with a host of other antioxidants, fatty acids, and vitamins.  This makes Rose Hip oil an excellent vitamin serum for improving the health of all skin types, even sensitive skin.

Vitamins & Fatty Acids in Rose Hip Oil:

Vitamin C ~

An Antioxidant that stimulates collagen formation to help firm and strengthen the skin.

Vitamin A ~

Helps reverse the signs of premature ageing while stimulating collagen and elastin production.  Enhances water barrier properties, and can help with skin dehydration from sun exposure.

Omega 3, 6, 9 ~

These essential fatty acids help preserve the cell's natural barrier to the environment.  They assist in producing supple, moist skin and improve skin condition.  The Omegas stimulate skin regeneration and repair of damaged skin tissue.

How to use Rose Hip Oil:

Just a couple of drops smoothed over your skin after using your Jute Dry Skin Brush is a great way to nourish and treat your skin.  You can also replace your night time moisturiser with Rose Hip Oil.  It is safe to use on all skin types, even babies skin.  Its balancing properties also make it suitable for both dry and oily skins.  Also, its skin healing properties make Rose hip oil perfect for improving scars and stretch marks.
