Rosehip oil is about to become your skin’s BFF and here’s why

One of the best things you can do for your skin is to understand the ingredients that are lurking inside your products. Once you understand which components do great things for your complexion, it’s as simple as just knowing what ingredients are good for you, seeking them out, and loving the amazing results you get from them. That’s why we wanted to shine some light on rosehip oil, which is such an incredible skin-loving ingredient.

"Rosehip oil is a powerful antioxidant that, if stored properly (in a cool place) has the ability to penetrate deep into the skin," board-certified dermatologist Ariel Ostad tells us. "Its anti-aging benefits stem from its richness in vitamin C to stimulate collagen production, vitamin A to help with cell turnover and reduce fine lines and wrinkles."

According to Dr. Ostad, Rosehip oil is especially awesome for people who have dry, sensitive or inflamed skin.

"The oil is also a deep moisturizer which helps to help combat inflammation and redness. Studies show that it also has the ability to combat photo damage and reduce the appearance of sun-related brown spots. Due to its ability to remove free-radicals, this powerful antioxidant is also great for scars. Apply twice daily, but refrain from applying it to active acne as it may increase the breakout," she said.
