Also known as, the anti-aging oil, rose hip oil is popular for its intense anti aging properties and numerous benefits to the skin. Despite what your age may be and how “aged” your skin is, this oil can be your savior which is why it is important to know its benefits so you can make a DIY elixir that will help rejuvenate and revive your skin.
1. Anti Aging Properties
Rose hip oil is known for significant anti-aging properties. The best part is that it is a non-greasy and light oil that is high in antioxidants, which allows it to absorb into the deepest layers of your skin so the appearance of aging reduces while the moisture levels are maintained.
The production of collagen naturally lessens as we get older, but since rose hip oil is rich in vitamin C, it makes sure the production of collagen is always stimulated. Since this is the case, individuals can avoid getting Botox or using harsh chemicals on their skin to slow aging. Instead, use rose hip oil because it is full of rejuvenating properties like lycopene and vitamin A and C. Because of this, it is the best (and safest) solution to make sure the surface of your skin and its elasticity is restored.
2. Long Lasting Protection from Age Spots
The UV rays of the sun can cause hyper pigmentation and age spots on your face. The combination of vitamin C and E along with the antioxidants is great in fighting against the free radicals that are caused by sun damage. The antioxidants present in this oil are great in reducing the excessive amounts of pigment being produced in the skin, which can lead to age spots and uneven skin tone. If the sun causes irritations and redness on your skin, this oil can eliminate it.
3. Brighten, Hydrate And Moisturize the Skin
Along with all the vitamins and antioxidants present in rose hip oil, there are essential fatty acids that are crucial in making your skin –almost- perfect. The vitamin A present in the oil allows it to be penetrated easier (because of the smaller molecules) and it goes deeper into the skin and makes the moisture levels better. Hydrated skin will make sure aging does not become too prominent on your skin at an earlier age. Moreover, rose hip oil is known as the natural source of vitamin E and this anti-inflammatory antioxidant is safe to use on dry, sensitive skin.
DIY Elixir for Aging Skin (Tighten Your Skin)
The goal for most people (especially females) is to have firm skin that will make them look youthful as long as possible. Since this is the case, the best thing to do would be to opt for a rose hip oil elixir that will ensure firm skin while maintaining a natural, radiant glow.
The best part is that it is extremely easy to make. Here is what you will need:
- 1 ml of rosehip oil
- 1 drop of geranium essential oil
In a small jar, mix both of these oils and apply it on your skin two times a day. If you want, you can apply it anywhere you have loose skin. To extend the life of this oil, store it in a dark colored glass bottle.
Since rosehip oil has so many benefits, it is important to use it!
