Rosehip Oil – A Superfood for Your Skin.

Rosehip oil is extracted from the fruit, also known as the hip, of a rose plant. The hip is a ball about the size of a cherry, which is left behind after the rose flower blooms.

Research has shown that rosehip oil is excellent for treating skin ravaged by acne scars. This oil is one of best natural skin-healers that accelerate the healing of fade marks and acne scars, which a pimply breakout may cause.

This natural oil is not greasy, is immediately absorbed by the skin, and begins repairing and regenerating cells.

Rosehip oil does not clog pores and therefore does not contribute to further breakouts. Even if you have an oily skin, it is completely safe to use, as it is classed as a dry oil and is readily absorbed by the skin.

It is important to note that rose hip oil and rose oil are not the same thing. Rose oil is made from rose petals, and does not have any skin benefits.

The benefits of rosehip oil.

Rosehip oil is naturally high in fatty acids and vitamins that help in acne treatment and skin healing. Here are some of the benefits you can expect from using rose hip oil -

  • High in omega 3 and 6, also known as linoleic and linolenic acid, are healthy fatty acids. Research has shown that acne sufferers have low levels of these acids. Applied topically to the skin, rosehip oil helps to reduce the size of clogged pores, and lightens blemishes caused by too much sun exposure.
  • The fatty acids in rosehip oil also promote the formation of collagen. Collagen is found in almost every part of the body, including the skin, bones, tendons, and blood vessels. It is in fact the connective tissue that holds everything together, and also gives strength and elasticity to the skin.
  • Rose hip oil is anti- microbial, which is effective fighting the bacteria that cause acne.
  • The oil from the rosehip is rich in retinol, which is vitamin A. Retinol also has the ability to promote the formation of collagen in the body, can slow down the aging process in the body as a whole, and help cells to regenerate.
  • In addition to retinol, research has indicated that rosehip oil also contains trans- retinoic acid, which is an ingredient used in acute acne medication which helps deal with scars and promote smooth skin.

These are some of the benefits which are offered by using rose hip oil to help heal acne issues, and reduce scarring.

The best ways to make the most of using Rosehip Oil for Acne Treatments.

  • Rosehip oil is very light, so it is only necessary to use 2 or 3 drops at a time. Use morning and evening after washing face thoroughly with plain water.
  • If using in the day, apply sunblock before going out into the sun. The vitamin A in rosehip oil may make your skin vulnerable to sunburn.
  • Regular use keeps the facial cells and pores free from blockages, and promotes the healing of scars and enlarged pores.
  • Alternate First Order
    To get the full benefits of rosehip oil follow a healthy diet to build up the immune system, and keep your skin nourished from within to prevent  acne infections taking hold.

    Experts also agree that drinking plenty of water will keep your skin hydrated, and prevent dry flakiness which will clog the pores with dirt and excess oil. Combined with the regular use of rosehip oil, your skin will stay clear and healthy.

Acne specialists recommend that rosehip oil is best used at night after washing and cleansing. Studies have revealed that if applied under makeup, although quickly absorbed by the skin, it may still feel a bit oily.

Here are some testimonials from satisfied users of rosehip oil.

My skin is much smoother and clearer. I am told that this is because of the fatty acids in the oil. And the small clogged lumps have also mostly gone.


 I have had severe acne, especially on my face. After just one month of using this oil, I have seen my old scars begin to fade. Even the raised ones seem flatter.


My face is normally red with a flushed appearance. Since using rosehip oil, although the redness has not completely gone, it is much less obvious.


I used rosehip oil on my acne scars and redness. I must report that everything is healing better. Rosehip oil is not greasy and quickly accepted by the skin. Leaves no oily residue.


I have always had dark circles under my eyes. I decided to try rosehip oil, and I although I have not been sleeping well, am pleased to say the dark circles are almost no more.


I had some itchy, irritating flakiness on my cheeks due to climate changes. Using the rosehip oil recommended to me, has completely got rid of the flakiness.


Rosehip oil was absolutely great, and I advise everyone to use the organic brand, as it is the purest form you can get.


Rosehip oil is the best! My skin tone is 100% better.


The conclusion is that although the damage on the face can vary between spots, wrinkles, discolouration, and scars, the combination of the properties in rosehip oil seems to help whatever the problem.
