2. Reduces wrinkles and firms the skin
Rosehip oil is packed with all the beauty essentials your skin needs, including anti-inflammatory fatty acids and vitamins A and C. These ingredients contribute towards reducing signs of ageing, smoothing fine lines and thickening the deeper layers of skin. The formula can provide your skin with a strong antioxidant boost, making your skin feel and look younger for longer.
3. Prevents acne and breakouts
Rosehip oil contains powerful properties which can contribute to improving skin’s health. When skin is undernourished, it tends to secrete excess oil; which is turn causes acne. Rosehip oil prevents this from happening and helps unclog pores and prevent breakouts. Apply oil to a cotton pad and apply all over your face and neck and wash as usual.
4. Enhances Eyelashes
This oil can promote hair growth and enhance your eyelashes. Add two to five drops of the oil to a cotton ball and apply gently to eyelashes. Apply on a daily basis to see results.
5. Brightens skin tone
Vitamin C is known to have a skin brightening effect which in turn gives you a radiant complexion. This concoction is easy on the skin and evens out skin tone while reducing blotches or patchy skin. Apply to clean, damp skin twice a day for maximum results.
