I have had issues with uneven skin tone for most of my life. I guess my problems come from the fact that I have super pale skin that’s prone to redness and discoloration. The slightest breakout will cause a red mark that lingers for months while just a minute in the sun gives me ridiculous freckles and melasma (brown discoloration). I used to just slap on layers and layers of makeup to deal with the problem, but ever since I tried Rosehip Seed Oil, my skin has made a total turn around.
A lot of people who have issues with discoloration turn to AHA, also known as glycolic acid, which peels the top layer of skin and helps to even out skin tone. Although the AHA worked for me to some degree, it also left my sensitive skin irritated and pinkish all the time. Rosehip Seed Oil has similar abilities but actually soothes my skin, making it appear more even and healthy and glowy. I also find that I’m not battling oily skin since using Rosehip Seed Oil, and I’ve read it has the ability to balance your skin’s natural oil production. I swear a few of the premature wrinkles I’d gotten from using acne fighting products seem to be softer and less noticeable as well. And it’s not just me. My friends have all commented lately on how “rested” I look and asked me what I’ve been doing.
In addition to being great for lightening scars, evening skin tone, and softening wrinkles, I’ve also read that Rosehip Seed Oil is great for stretch marks and moisturizing hair and skin (particularly elbows, knees and heels).
I’ve been using the Organic Rosehip Seed Oil by Aubrey Organics and have been really happy with it. I really trust Aubrey Organics: they have really high standards for the production of their products to ensure they are as organic and pure as possible. I actually also started using the Aubrey Organics Rosa Mosqueta Shampoo as well. It contains Rosehip Seed Oil so I don’t actually have to rub the oil itself into my fine easily-weighed-down hair. The shampoo is working so well: it’s their “safe for color treated hair” shampoo and I find my color lasts a lot longer since using it.
Oh but I’m almost forgetting my favorite benefit of Rosehip Seed Oil: the smell!! It’s seriously the best smelling natural scent I’ve ever smelled. It’s one of those great light lingering scents that’s not at all strong but just smells so fresh and clean. Plus–BONUS–My boyfriend is totally intoxicated by it.
