I’ve been on a mission to revamp my skin care routine ever since my skin decided to get a million times more sensitive this past year 😦 I picked up rosehip seed oil after seeing Zendaya recommend it (that girl’s skin GLOWS, ok?) and it turns out it’s perfect for my dry and sensitive skin.
Rosehip seed oil is advertised as beneficial to reducing dry, irritated skin, and dark spots, all of which I’ve been blessed with. I use a few drops every night before bed and I wake up with baby soft skin. It’s recommended use is twice daily, but I can’t stand having an oily feeling face during the day so I never use it in the morning.
Dry skin: If you have chronic dry patches on your face, rosehip seed oil alone won’t be enough to keep your skin hydrated, but it’s a nice touch. It likely won’t irritate your face and will help the rest of your skin stay hydrated.
Irritated skin: I always have hives and random rashy outbreaks from allergies on my neck and face. 😦 I’ve found the oil definitely helps reduce inflammation and doesn’t cause anymore irritation which is huge for me because my skin can’t handle most products.
Dark spots: I feel like I always assume that products that claim to reduce dark spots work but I think it’s really just wishful thinking, because here I am, still with my dark eye circles. My only dark spots are around my eyes so I can’t advise you on anything else (sorry!), it doesn’t make them go away, but it having soft, hydrated undereyes definitely doesn’t make things any worse!
Where to buy it: I purchased my lil bottle from Winners for around $8, but you can also purchase from a number of places online if that’s more your style! I also know “The Ordinary” is a trusted skincare brand and they sell a highly rated, vegan, cruelty free, water-free, alcohol-free, 100% rosehip oil for $9.90. Not! Bad!
