Today I plan on making a face & body scrub as a treat to myself. This time I will add some organic rosehip seed oil in it. This oil is absolutely incredible and wonderful for the skin! Here are a few points why you would do yourself a favor by using it, too :
- The rosehip seed is made up of 77% fatty acids. High in linoleic and linolenic acids, vitamin C, and vitamin A (retinol); all essential for skin and hair health, Rosa rubiginosa has been found to regenerate tissue and eliminate wrinkles, fine lines, scars, sun damage and stretch marks. The essential fatty acids it contains when absorbed through the skin, convert to prostaglandins which assist in cellular membrane and tissue regeneration.
- Rosehip seed oil in short helps prevent premature aging, soothes, heals and moisturizes mature skin, and prevents the formation of keloid scar tissue, which is the characteristic thickening of the skin in scar formation.
- It also helps to heal conditions such as:
- Age spots
- Brittle nails
- Burns (radiation & sun)
- Dry & damaged hair
If you wish to apply it as moisturizer, be careful because its orange color can stain your clothes & pillows!
