Fine lines, scars and age spots are issues we think about more and more as the years go by. But did you know a single oil can help with all three issues?
I’m talking about rosehip oil, a favorite of cosmetics brands, home beauty DIYers, and the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow. Rosehip (seed) oil is filled with antioxidants, vitamins, and fatty acids, making it an essential choice for hydrating super dry skin, reducing scaring, or evening out pigmentation.
Add a few drops to your daily moisturizer or try one of these rosehip oil beauty recipes:

Clearly, everyone wants youthful skin, so anti-aging facial oils can be super expensive. Why not take that money to buy these ingredients and make your own for years to come?
Whether you’re dealing with fine lines, sun damage, or scarring, this healing serum with rosehip, carrot seed, lavender, pumpkin and frankincense essential oils will take care of it all.
Switch out your regular face cleanser this fall for a creamy, hydrating cleansing balm. Ideal for winter skin, you can make this balm with rich rosehip seed oil. It also doubles as a makeup remover.
Combine protein-packed eggs with rosehip oil for a moisturizing hair mask to nourish the scalp, which encourages new hair growth, and strengthen strands, making them less prone to breakage or shedding.
Try an at-home sheet mask recipe using a tissue or Kleenex to give your skin a boost of added hydration. Dip the mask in a mixture of water, honey, and rosehip seed oil and relax while the treatment delivers a dose of vitamins and essential fatty acids to moisturize and treat aging skin.
