Are you after a natural way to get soft, supple skin? Or to help heal your scars? We have the answer: Rosehip Oil. It's an A-List staple that everyone from Miranda Kerr to British Royalty use. But what makes it so great, and what do you actually use it for?
There's no one answer to those questions. There are so many benefits to using Rosehip Oil and so many ways to use it. From your scalp to your toenails.
Firstly, What's Rosehip Oil?
Rosehips are the fruit left when a rose loses its petals, and the oil comes from cold pressing the Rosehip, specifically those grown in South America and Africa. A lot of Rosehip Oils include additives and sulfates, so it’s important to look for the best quality Organic Rosehip Oil, as that will give you the best results. We'll let you know the easiest way of spotting the best ones at the end of the blog!
So here’s our list of 5 reasons why Rosehip Oil should become part of your routine every night (and not just on your face)…
1. Dull, Dry Hair? Rosehip is your answer
Say goodbye to bad hair days. Simply add some Rosehip Oil to a bowl of warm (not boiling) water and massage it into your hair and scalp. Leave on for around an hour and wash thoroughly. It will reinvigorate your hair, moisturizing damaged ends and make your locks shine.
Rosehip Oil will also help fight dandruff and other similar scalp conditions. Massage it straight onto the scalp, leave for 30 minutes, then wash with shampoo. You’ll notice the difference straight away.
2. Your Ultimate Skin Saviour
This is the main use of Rosehip Oil, as it works wonders on your skin. It’s rich in essential fatty acids, such as linoleic acid (also known as omega-6) and linolenic acid (sounds similar, but this one’s omega-3). Fatty acids will help to moisturize your skin, keeping aging at bay and giving you a youthful glow. It also works to even your skin tone, too. You can apply it directly or mix Rosehip Oil and water in a spray bottle and refresh your skin throughout the day. Even better in summer!
3. Wave Goodbye To Your Scars
Rosehips astringent and skin nourishing properties work to speed up the healing process, for things such as stretch marks, age spots, hyper-pigmentation, scars (including acne scars) and burns. Apply to the area (not onto the broken skin, though) and watch as your scars heal themselves, even after being dormant for years.
4. Soothe That Sunburn
Because Rosehip Oil is great for speeding up the healing process in scars, it can really help if you’ve had a little too much sun, too. It works to soothe your inflamed skin and make sure it heals as quickly as possible. Mix with warm water and soak a cotton cloth in it, applying gently to the burnt area.
5. Longer, Stronger Nails
And it doesn’t stop there! Rosehip Oil can also help nourish your brittle nails. Whether it’s from too many pedicures or too much housework, your hands probably need some TLC. Massage Rosehip Oil into nails and cuticles before you go to sleep, and your nails will grow stronger and your cuticles will feel softer.
So, how do I choose the best Rosehip Oil?
All the benefits of using Rosehip Oil sound appealing to anyone, but it’s important to understand that not all Rosehip Oils are the same, and the higher the quality, the better. So many of the oils contain additives and emulsifiers which will reduce their effectiveness. 100% organic, paraben-free and sulfate-free Rosehip Oils are the best. It ensures the oil is as pure as it can be, and will work best with your skin, with no added nasties. This is exactly how we make our very own cold pressed Rosehip Oil, so you can be confident it’s the best quality Rosehip Oil out there!
