How's the weather been treating you lately? Is your skin screaming at you with a dry and cracked throat?
I received a bottle of Valentia Rosehip Oil to review and it has come in handy for keeping my hands moisturized against the cold winter temperatures we have had. I can't imagine what it must be like for those that have been hit with one snowstorm after another! The cold and wind combine to torture skin.
I have seen it mentioned that rosehip oil had an odor so I was a little apprehensive about that. This does have a slight scent and I don't advise taking a big sniff of the open bottle. BUT, it takes so very little when I massage it into my hands that the odor is scant and actually dissipates pretty quickly.
I bet getting roses brightens your day! This can brighten and rejuvenate your skin. Rosehip Oil is derived from a species of rose called "Rosa rubiginosa". Rosehip oil is packed with antioxidants, fatty oils and other anti-aging ingredients. It is often used in anti-aging skin creams, but the oil can be applied directly to problem areas.
It contains a derivative of vitamin A that invigorates and regenerates skin, firming it as well as fighting fine lines. It also helps treat sun-damaged skin by lightening it. Rosehips also contain C, E, B and K. They also contain citric acid, flavonoids, fatty oils, tannin, pectin, and more vitamin C than citrus fruits. Interesting to note that rosehips were used as a dietary supplement during World War II because there was a shortage of citrus fruits.
You skin needs lipids to form and sustain membranes and to prevent transepidermal water loss. Rosehip oil is a natural lipid as all oils are. It helps with the flexibility and permeability of skin and helps keep necessary moisture in and harmful bacteria out.
Rosehip oils retains a higher amount of its natural antioxident Vitamin C after processing than other essential oils. The healing properties are often used to minimize scars and treat skin conditions such as eczema and burns. It has also been used for rheumatoid arthritis, urinary bladder infections and headaches.
It takes only a few drops for each of my hands to be fully moisturized so this 1.8 ounce bottle will have some lasting power. It offers you great control with a dropper dispenser so you can use as little or and much as you like.
