One of Mother Nature's best kept secrets is the benefits of organic rosehip oil to the skin. At Beautiful Because, we always say, if you are going to use just one natural ingredient, make this the one!
Rosehip oil is extracted from the hip of the rose. This is the fruit left once the rose has bloomed and lost its petals. Beauty professionals worldwide use and recommend the product to their clients for its following key benefits:
Rosehip oil is well-tolerated on all skin types (including oily; helping regulate your natural sebum production) and age groups and can be used for the following skin concerns:
It should be applied to damp skin after cleansing, morning and evening for best results. Like a serum, it is easily absorbed by the skin shouldn't leave behind an oily residue. You will only need a few drops.
You can apply your moisturiser over the top of the rosehip oil, or use it alone. Most skin types require an oil based moisturiser such as Rosehip oil, and SPF protection, to function at optimum health.
Clinical studies have shown, most first time users notice improvement of their skin's texture and concerns within three to six months.
