Rosehip oil is an amazing oil to add into your facial routine. It can help reduce acne and acne scarring, boost collagen production, prevent wrinkles, reduce redness and keep the skin supple and moisturized. Here are all the different wsays I use this amazing oil on my face:

  • Moisturizer: A couple drops added to your moisturizer or sunscreen can add an extra level on hydration to your face. This oil absorbs nicely into the skin and leaves skin feeling super soft without leaving a greasy residue like other oils might.

  • Makeup remover: Use a nice sized amount on your face to help melt your makeup away. Using this oil before a makeup wipe or a warm towel will remove a full face of makeup with ease.

  • Nighttime moisturizer: A dime-sized amount spread all over your face before bed will have you waking up to a smooth and hydrated complexion. Use alone or under your regular night cream

2. Body

Rosehip oil is and ideal body moisturizing due to its high absorbancy and benefits. What I love about this oil is it glides on easily and leaves a natural glow on the skin without a greasy residue left behind.

  • Full body moisturizer: Rub this oil all over your body to soften and smooth your complexion.

  • Stretch mark & scar oil: massage over any scars or acne marks to smooth them out and fade discolorations.

  • Shaving oil

3. Hair

Using rosehip oil in your hair and scalp can help stimulate hair growth and revitlize damaged hair.

  • Hair mask: Massage this oil into your scalp and leave it inyour hair anywhere from 30 minutes to overnight before washing your hair to help stimulate strong and healthy hair growth.

  • Leave in conditioner: After washing hair rub a few drops of this oil through your hair and comb through the ends to hydrate strands and give your hair some extra shine. Depending on your hair type you really don't need more than a couple drops
