BEAUTY TIPS USING ROSEHIP SEED OIL ~ The Fruit of the Rose
Organic Rosehip Seed Oil allows your skin to breathe, while it repairs itself and generates new cells.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Rosehips, these are the seed pods of roses and are also edible. When compressed to an oil, you can simply add a few drops to your favourite face crème, preferably as a night crème. If you find it too heavy on your skin, add a few drops of water on your hand and blend the oil.
ABOUT ROSEHIP SEED OIL
Rosehip contains natural Retinoic acid (Vitamin A acid); which is excellent for oily skin (because it is a dry oil), sensitive skin and skin with large pores. The oil contains essential fatty acids and vitamin C; which work together in boosting your skin cell regeneration and provide a rejuvenating effect for a natural glow.
Thus, just using the rosehip SEED oil is an effective natural alternative for skin moisturizers and creams whether it be in diluted or undiluted form.
One of the purest Rosehip Seed Oil, also organic is from Natural Family Botanicals. It is cold pressed, and unrefined from Chile – nothing is added. For best results, use it day and night and consistently for two to three months.
Used as part of your nightly regime, the oil allows your skin to breathe, while it repairs itself and generates new cells. When applied consistently for two to three months Rosehip Seed Oil was found to:

Rosehip Seed oil is excellent for mature skin
High in essential unsaturated fatty acids, vitamin A and retinoic acid, this an excellent oil for the healing of sensitive, allergic, sun-damaged, hyper-pigmented, dry, aging, and problem skin. It also helps to provide relief of eczema.
The oil pressed off the Rosehip seed contains an amazing 77% of fatty acids (linoleic and linolenic). Fatty acids is important, these function in regeneration of skin cells and repair of damaged tissues, which suggests it helps to reduce the signs of premature ageing.
It has been stated that Rosehip seed oil is a source of topical retinoic acid (vitamin A) in a natural state. Probably that’s why I love it. I have very dry and sensitive skin and I really love it.

Note: Rosehip oil is a carrier oil, this means that you can apply it directly to your skin (neat). But please do a small test patch of skin somewhere discrete, before applying it directly to your face, neck, lips and so on.
