As a member of team oily skin, I never had an interest in using oils or oil based products. I figured that mother nature had just hooked it up. I thought I was as hydrated as I ever needed to be, until I turned 26 and began to notice some ever-so- fine lines around my eyes and mouth. Not a big deal–we all have them–but that didn’t stop me from feverishly typing the words “anti-aging” into google until I found what has come to be my holy grail skincare product: Rosehip Oil.
Why I Love It
This stuff is packed with all of those things we’re trained to listen for in skincare. Antioxidants–check. Vitamins(A,C,E)–check. Essential Fatty Acids–check. If you’ve ever looked at Miranda Kerr, Gwenyth Paltrow, or Kate Middleton and thought “I’ll have what they’re having!”–this is it. This stuff totally changed my skin. In just 2 months it plumped out the fine lines, diminished dark spots from acne scarring, and gave my skin an overall radiant appearance. For optimum results, make sure to use 100 percent cold-pressed, as it retains more of the benefits. My favorite is Radha Rosehip Oil (Amazon.com,$13.95).
