Rosehip oil is the easy, natural way to reduce wrinkles and other signs of aging. As we grow older, it’s natural for our skin to change, losing elasticity, becoming dry and itchy, and forming fine lines and wrinkles. Simple facial expressions like smiling or frowning lead to lines and wrinkles. At a young age, our skin is elastic enough to snap back into place after moving into these expressions. With UV light and other environmental aggressors like smoking and pollution, the skin naturally loses its elasticity and slows down its collagen production, creating wrinkles and lines that stay in place. So how does Rosehip Oil fight wrinkles?
Rosehip oil contains an omega-6 fatty acid called linoleic acid. Linoleic acid is considered to help even out the oil production in your pores, balancing your skin’s moisture levels. It may also be helpful to reduce sunspots and hyperpigmentation. This fatty acid helps your skin keep moisturized and hydrated and has anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce puffiness and irritation.
In addition to linoleic acid, rosehip oil contains vitamins and antioxidants that help keep your skin looking youthful. As a reminder, antioxidants are compounds that help fight free radicals and environmental damages your skin faces. Vitamin E, an antioxidant, is well known for its anti-inflammatory properties and is favored for reducing the appearance of scars.
Rosehip oil also contains Vitamin A and C, which protect against sun damage. UV rays speed up the aging process, causing premature aging and wrinkles. By protecting the skin from the sun, rosehip oil helps to slow down this photoaging process. Rosehip oil should be used in conjunction with sunscreen and not as a replacement for it. Vitamin A is also useful in reducing hyperpigmentation and evening out the skin tone.
Rosehip oil is non-comedogenic, which means that it won’t clog your pores or make your acne worse. Linoleic acid controls oil production, making it a good match for oily skin, while the fatty acids hydrate dry skin. Because it’s a carrier oil, it’s gentle and safe to use all over your skin, morning and night. Make sure to use it later in your skincare routine, after your cleanser, toner, and serums. Some people have success putting a thin layer on under makeup, while others prefer sleeping with it on overnight.
Radha Beauty Rosehip Oil is cold-pressed, which is a natural and chemical free way to physically press the oils out of the rosehip seeds. This process also helps the oil to retain its powerful antioxidants. Cold pressing also means there are no added chemicals, so the oil is 100% pure, vegan and contains no sulfates, phthalates, silicones, or parabens.
