Rosehip seed oil is full of vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids that are known to correct dark spots and hydrate dry, itchy skin, and reduce scars and fine lines. For facial skin care, rose hip oil offers several benefits when applied externally.
The anti-aging benefit from using rose hip oil on your face comes about due to the antioxidants and the oil’s ability to soak into deeper layers of skin. The vitamin C antioxidants stimulate collagen production and help reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The oil can penetrate due to the vitamin A, which has small molecules to go soak into the skin. Vitamin A improves the skin’s moisture levels and reduces wrinkles and fine lines.
The essential fatty acids in rose hip seed oil can help reduce scarring and promote skin regeneration. Essential fatty acids are emollients, which improve skin flexibility and permeability. Vitamin A may also play a part in rose hip oil’s affect on scar tissue due to its ability to improve skin texture and tone.
