Rosehip oil, something that has made the rounds in the health and beauty circle in recent years. From the commoner to celebrities to Kate Middleton (royal family of England), more and more people are using it. But how many of us ask ourselves, what exactly is this rosehip oil and what does it do? Of the many brands available, which one will be a good one to use?

Rosehip oil is a pressed seed oil, extracted from the seeds of a wild rose bush. It contains  vitamins, anti-oxidants and is rich in essential fatty acids. In simple terms, essential fatty acids are fatty acids that we obtain through our diet because the body requires them for good health but is unable to synthesize them.

Commonly used in skincare products, rosehip oil is used mainly to counter a range of skin conditions including:

  1. Dermatitis
  2. Acne
  3. Eczema
  4. Mature skin
  5. Sun-burnt skin
  6. Wrinkles
  7. Scarring

Rosehip oil is absorbed into the skin quickly and creates a protective barrier on the skin to prevent dehydration. This also makes it non-greasy and light, which does not make your face uncomfortable at all. The best time to use it will be in the morning or in the evening after cleansing. Apply a few drops onto your hand, rub it together before applying to your face while it is still damp.

Also, you may wish to consider using it together with the Nelson Honey Royal Nectar Original Face Mask. One way of using it will be to rub some rosehip oil onto your face, then apply the mask overnight while you sleep.

And if you have not clicked the link on Kate Middleton above, you may be wondering which brand of rosehip oil does she use? Well, it is the Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil, which is made in New Zealand. You may wish to refer to our website if you are interested in this.
