All About Rosehip—The Miracle Ingredient That's Amazing For Every Skin Type
Rosehip oil continues to rise in popularity as a cult beauty must-have, with women like Duchess Kate Middleton and Miranda Kerr singing its praises. Rosehip extract provides incredible benefits for the skin and amazing healing abilities. A cold-pressing process removes oil from the fruit below the rose flower. The result: a super hydrating, antioxidant and vitamin-packed extract known to improve elasticity. Before you run off to slather some product containing rosehip extract onto your face, read on for more incredible benefits and suggestions on two products you need to add to your makeup bag now!
Hydrates & Moisturizes
Many people confuse hydration and moisture. Dehydrated skin needs water and dry skin needs oil to lock in moisture. Rosehip extract does both for your skin! Fatty acids keep your skin’s cell walls strong and allows the absorption of antioxidants. This leaves users with soft skin.
Rosehip extract helps promote collagen production which is the building block of skin. Collagen is essential for elasticity and firmness. Products that contain rosehip extract combat signs of aging as well as fine lines. Rosehip extract provides nourishing vitamins and essential fatty acids, which improves regenerative properties.
Rosehip extract contains phenols which are anti bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal. Phenols in Vitamin E, help treat certain skin irritations like psoriasis, and eczema.
Protection from Sun Damage
Vitamins A, C, and E are antioxidants that fight against the appearance of visible sun damage. They also reduce negative effects of UV rays. Although it can’t take the place of sunscreen, rosehip extract does aid in the skin’s UV protection.
Fights Against Hyper-pigmentation:
The Vitamin A in rosehip extract helps reduce hyperpigmentation, appearance of dark marks, and acne scars. It is safe to use on all skin types to achieve an even skin tone.
