Natural healing, the only face oil you need this season
by Natalie Ng

 
Known for its array of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and healing properties, the origin of rosehip seed oil dates back to the ancient Egyptians time. Its healing properties go beyond its skin-healing benefits, rosehip has been a staple among the Romans, World War II doctors, the ancient Chinese doctors and Native Americans as it can relieve symptoms of a cold and muscle cramps. Transformational and versatile, this natural oil makes for the perfect antidote for our skin. I am breaking down the 3 major reasons why you need to incorporate rosehip seed oil in your skincare regiment now. 
 
Rich in essential linolenic fatty acids 
 
Unlike rose oil, rosehip seed oil is a pressed seed oil extracted from rose bushes. It contains high levels of linolenic acids, namely omega-3 and omega-6. Linolenic acid functions as a skin restorative ingredient to soften and improve the skin’s barrier. This natural oil promotes cell regeneration, calms irritated skin, treats sunburn, scars and hyperpigmentation. 
 
Although acne-prone individuals may bulk at the idea of putting more oil on their face, an essential fatty acids deficiency could well be the reason behind their skin issue. Naturally, our skin overcompensates the lack of linoleic acid by producing more oleic acid. An overproduction of oleic acid is directly linked to acne breakouts.  The high content of omega-6 in rosehip seeds oil supplements our skin with the essential linoleic acid, thereby eliminating blemishes. 
 
A serious glow boost for all skin types
 

The potent cocktail of vitamins and antioxidants also protects us city dwellers from the damage of UV exposure and environmental pollution. Rosehip seed oil contains high concentration of revitalizing vitamins such as A, B1, B2, B3, E and K. This explains its anti-inflammatory, regenerating and skin brightening properties. This natural oil balances our skin’s sebum production thus reduces excess shine. Your skincare routine will always benefit from it whether you have oily, sensitive, dehydrated or combination skin. Rosehip retains your skin’s natural moisture and hydration while giving it a visibly suppler and pliable look.
 
Easy application 
 
Take an easy step to update your skincare regiment with this multi-correctional natural face oil that renews, repairs, protects and tones the skin. Massage it into cleansed skin every morning and night over an essence or serum, and seal it with the moisturizer of your choice. When laying products, remember to start with the lightest first and the heaviest texture last. Here are some rosehip seed oils that are worth investing in:
