Still don’t know the benefits of Rosehip Oil? At Bienestar y Belleza Market we explain what it is used for, what its properties are and how you can use it to get the most out of it.
How is Rose Hip Oil obtained?
This oil is extracted from the fruits of the Rosa Rubiginosa tree, these fruits are known as rose hips. After a process of cold pressing, these fruits are squeezed to the maximum, thus obtaining Rose Hip Oil.
What are its main properties?
The composition of this oil is what makes it an essential ingredient in cosmetics. It is rich in vitamin A, C and E, contains omega 3 omega 6 and linoleic acid. It also contains retinol, a natural antioxidant that serves as an anti-wrinkle and anti-spot treatment, thanks to its renewing properties.
One of the most common uses for Rosehip oil is as a regenerative treatment for scars. Once the scar has healed and is covered with new skin, this is the perfect time to start applying the oil. Applying this product will improve the scarring and prevent the appearance of marks during this phase, as the graded acids contained in this oil help to accelerate the regeneration of the skin cells, making them regenerate much faster, eventually fading away and you will hardly notice them.
Apply the Rosa Mosqueta oil or cream to the area you want to treat with a gentle massage with the fingertips until the product has been completely absorbed. You will notice how the tightness of the area is reduced and how the discomfort is relieved.
Rosehip Oil is rich in antioxidants, making it the perfect ally to combat the first signs of ageing. Thanks to its high vitamin C content, it is able to rejuvenate the face, delaying the passage of time on the skin, preventing the appearance of the signs of ageing, such as spots, wrinkles and lack of flexibility in the skin.
After the continued use of oils or creams with Rosehip, you will notice how your skin recovers the vitality it had lost over the years. Argan oil cream can also be used to reinforce the anti-ageing effect.
Whether you already have stretch marks or want to prevent them, Rosehip Oil is perfect for you. The fatty acids contained in Rosehip oil are responsible for regenerating damaged skin, in this case with stretch marks. These fatty acids help to accelerate the regeneration process of the skin cells, just as they do with scars.
If you don’t have stretch marks, but want to prevent them, the oil moisturises your skin, preventing the tissues from breaking down. In the case of pregnancies, where the appearance of stretch marks all over the body is very common, Rosehip oil will help you to repair the tissues that are damaged due to the rapid growth of the belly. Moreover, as it is a totally natural oil, you don’t have to worry about the ingredients it contains as it is not harmful to your baby.
For the best possible results, it is important to be consistent with this type of treatment, because if we neglect or stop the treatment for a while, the results obtained will not be the desired ones or will not be as positive as they could be if we follow a consistent routine.
Anti dark circles under the eyes
Omega 3 is an essential component in the fight against dark circles under the eyes, and fortunately, Rosehip Oil contains this ingredient. In addition, together with vitamin C, this oil will be able to completely erase dark circles under the eyes and eliminate bags under the eyes, as it deeply hydrates the skin, leaving your eyes completely rejuvenated and full of vitality after use.
To do this, apply the oil or eye contour with Rosehip on the lower part of the eyes, massage the area with the ring finger, as it is the one that exerts less pressure, and continue until the product has been completely absorbed.
Anti-inflammatory and acne-prone skins
It is true that this oil does not have antibacterial properties to eliminate acne, but it has other properties that benefit skin suffering from this type of condition. Rosehip oil has an anti-inflammatory effect that helps to reduce the small inflammations caused by acne, improving the appearance of the skin and reducing the redness caused by pimples.
In addition, it is a very gentle oil that is not aggressive to the skin, making it suitable for all skin types, even the most sensitive, such as those suffering from rosacea. It moisturises in depth, preventing skin flaking and dryness, relieving the discomfort caused by this type of skin condition.
Rose Hip Oil is an ingredient suitable for all skin types and with very versatile uses. Thanks to its richness of components and properties, it is the perfect complement to our daily routine, as with just one product we can take care of our whole body and improve our well-being.
Other products that are also recommended for their anti-inflammatory effect and their beneficial properties are those containing Aloe Vera. For more information see the post: All about aloe vera.
