As I wrote in a previous post about the anti-aging benefits of the essential oils (link here), today’s post is entireley dedicated to the rose-hip oil and its benefits.
The application of rose oil to the skin has an anti-aging effect due to the antioxidants it contains and the ability of this oil to penetrate deep skin layers and to stimulate collagen production. It also helps reduce wrinkles or fine lines. Rose Oil is the safe solution for repairing the skin’s surface, restoring its elasticity and protecting the skin from sunlight and pollution. The penetration power of this oil is due to vitamin A, whose small molecules can get deeper into the skin, leading to its hydration and wrinkle blurring.
The ultraviolets are known to be factors of photo-aging, or, in other words, skin deterioration. The properties of rose oil make this product ideal for combating skin damage caused by the sun. Free radicals that cause damage are controlled by antioxidants in rose-hip oil, which, along with vitamin A and essential fatty acids contained, improve skin toning, texture and pigmentation. Long exposure to the sun plays an important role in lowering collagen levels, but vitamin C in rose-hip oil solves this problem and prepares a bright summer face. We can also use this type of oil to reduce redness and irritation of the skin, eliminating rosacea acne.
The rose-hip oil composition rich in essential fatty acids can help to treat scars and regenerate the skin. Essential fatty acids in rose-hip oil act as emollients, improving the flexibility and permeability of the skin, but also repairing it. Vitamin A in rose oil plays an important role in the treatment of scar tissue, due to its ability to correct the tone and texture of the skin.
I hope you find this post useful, and if you use another essential oil for your skincare, just leave me a comment and tell me which one! 🙂
