5 Ways to Use Rosehip Seed Oil August 13 2013

For centuries, people in Chile have taken advantage of the beauty benefits of using rosehip seed oil, otherwise known as rosa mosqueta oil.  Fortunately, word has spread and the rest of the world is catching on to the wonders of this all natural product.  Primarily sourced from wild roses in Chile, rosehip seed oil is light and penetrates quickly into the skin for immediate hydration.  Naturally high levels of vitamin C, retinol, and omega 3 and 6 fatty acids are what make rosehip seed oil an effective anti-aging moisturizer, especially for sensitive skin.  Here are five easy ways you can use rosehip seed oil to help you feel young, glowing, and confident:

1. Evening Face Serum
Rosehip seed oil is a great source of retinoic acid, which studies show minimize the appearance of fine lines and premature aging skin.  When routinely applied as a nighttime face serum, rosehip seed oil can help you wake up glowing.

2. Daily Skin Moisturizer
Whether used alone or as a complement to your daytime SPF cream or lotion, rosehip seed oil properly nourishes your skin to help you achieve a youthful, dewy complexion. 

3. Scar Minimizer / Stretch Mark Prevention
When regularly applied to closed healing wounds, rosehip seed oil helps minimize the look of unsightly scars.  You can also use rosehip seed oil on areas prone to stretch marks.  Apply the oil after every wash and at the first sign of itchiness to keep skin smooth.

4. Cuticle Softener
Just a drop or two of rosehip seed oil will keep cuticles on both hands looking and feeling exquisite.  Apply after every hand wash to maintain softness.

5. Scalp Nourisher

Shampoos and conditioners often contribute to dry and itchy scalp.  To counter the drying effects of these hair products, we recommend occasionally using a few drops of rosehip seed oil on the scalp at night two hours before going to bed.
