Benefits of Rosehip Seed Oil:

 

If you’re trying to prevent wrinkles, or even if they’ve already take hold, rosehip seed oil has many unique properties that make it a great choice for aging or damaged skin.

 

Penetrates Skin

 

Unlike other oils for mature skin, rosehip seed oil is astringent and considered a “dry oil,” which means it sinks into skin quickly. This allows its essential fatty acids to really penetrate and soothe dry skin.

 

Boosts Collagen Production

 

Rosehip seed oil actually encourages skin to form its own collagen due to its naturally occurring vitamin A. Other facial moisturizers with added collagen might claim to be anti-aging, but there’s a problem: collagen molecules are too large for our skin to absorb when they’re applied topically.

 

Nourishes and Regenerates

 

Rosehip seed oil keeps skin supple and strong by nourishing skin with vitamins A, C, and E. It’s also very high in linoleic and alpha-linoleic acids, which promote cellular regeneration and keep skin looking youthful.

 

Soothes Skin and Scars

 

A 2015 study published in the Journal of Cosmetics shows rosehip seed benefits in wound healing and reduction in scarring after surgical procedures. This same study suggests rosehip seed oil might also reduce the effects of photo-aging from sun exposure due to its vitamin A (retinol) content.

 

How to Make Rosehip Seed Oil Facial Moisturizer

 

This rosehip seed oil facial moisturizer recipe contains seven skin-boosting ingredients and absolutely no junk! A little goes a long way so one batch can last months (and still cost much less than expensive anti-aging products).

 

Choosing Rosehip Seed Oil

 

When it comes to rosehip seed oil, color matters. In general, conventionally grown rosehip seed oil is usually pale yellow and lacking in beneficial lycopene, minerals, and vitamins A and C. Organic rosehip seed oil tends to have a more vibrant orange-yellow color due to its higher level of beneficial carotenoids and vitamin A. So the source does matter.

 

 

Vitamin E

 

Vitamin E is a great ingredient to include in any face moisturizer for its ability to extend the shelf life of homemade products. It is not a preservative, but it slows the oxidizing of carrier oils. It has a similar effect on skin and helps to fight aging and prevent free radical damage.

 

Mango Butter

 

Mango butter is also high in potent antioxidants and contains polyphenols to reduce inflammation and rejuvenate skin. This butter helps to thicken the facial moisturizer, but doesn’t feel greasy on the skin.

 

How to Use:

 

Cleanse skin using a cleanser of choice and pat dry. Use finger tips to gently massage a small amount of this moisturizer into the skin in a circular motion.
