Everybody talks about rosehip oil and many benefits to it. So, we thought we should do a little research and find 10 rules when using rosehip oil and incorporating it into your skincare routine.
Rosehip oil is a natural moisturizer. It provides skin protection and rejuvenates skin cells. We at Skineez LOVE it! We use it in all our products, and it plays a big part in who we are. So, we wanted to share our passion with you, but also to expend our usage of this amazing natural oil.
How to add rosehip oil to your skincare routine?
Rosehip oil is fairly easy to add to your skincare routine. A bottle of organic rosehip oil can last for a long time, even if you use it daily. You can use rosehip oil alongside your other skincare products. Applying it twice a day, once in the morning, and once in the evening will give you 24h of skin protection and hydration.
Rosehip oil is popular in the skincare industry, so you can choose a product that soothes your needs. That can be pure natural rosehip oil, or another product containing rosehip oil among other ingredients. If you go with pure rosehip oil, you should apply 2-3 drops in one use, and rub it gently in your skin. If you choose another product that only contains rosehip oil, it will depend on that product how often you will use it and how to apply it.
For example, Skineez Skincarewear products are infused with a formula containing rosehip oil. All the ingredients, including rosehip oil, are carefully measured and put together so they will have a maximum effect if you follow clothes usage recommendations. If you wear compression socks daily, as recommended, your skin will also interact with the perfect daily dosage of rosehip oil and other ingredients.
How often to apply rosehip oil?
Rosehip oil helps your skin the most if you use it daily. If you incorporate it into your routine, be sure to follow that routine. It is best if you put rosehip oil once or twice a day. There is no need to put it more than two times a day. Once in the morning and once in the evening is probably the best and the easiest-to-remember routine. Again, if you do use it through another skincare product, be sure to follow the instructions and use it as recommended.
When to use rosehip oil in a skincare routine?
Incorporating rosehip oil into your routine in the morning will help your skin be fresh and help it breathe during the day.
Rosehip oil is great for helping you deal with pigmentation patches and discoloration. Also, during the winter, it can be your best ally. Pure and natural moisturizer will fight skin sensitivity during winter, and help your skin stay hydrated.
Applying it before you start your day, and after you finish it, will give the 24h coverage of hydration and freshness.
Should you use rosehip oil before or after moisturizer?
It all depends on your skin type, your previous routines, and habits. Some people suggest that you apply rosehip oil before moisturizer, and some say after.
So, what is the difference? If you apply the oil before moisturizer, it will leave your skin soft and fresh, but then maybe there is no need to apply more moisture. Rosehip oil is hydrating, and it will leave your skin glowy, although it will not reach your deeper skin layers. On the other hand, putting the oil after the moisturizer will seal the moisturizer and everything you put under it.
The best order, though, should be:
- Rosehip oil
This way, you will first clean your skin and all the dead cells, then with the moisturizer, you will penetrate deeply into the skin and reach layers that oil cannot, and in the end, the oil will soften your surface, seal all that you out before, and leave your skin hydrated.
Does rosehip oil clog pores?
No. Rosehip oil does not clog pores. You should apply it in a small amount. As we already said, 2-3 drops per usage. The skin absorbs it fast, but that doesn’t mean it is not hydrating.
Can you use rosehip oil around the eyes?
You can use rosehip oil around your eyes to treat minor wrinkles and dark circles. Rosehip oil helps skin cells restore and revitalize, so it is said that it has rejuvenating powers. It helps skin smoothen and tighten. Also, as it helps even your skin tone and treats discoloration, so it can help with dark circles.
Note: When applying oils around eyes, you should never apply it too close to the eye.
Can you use rosehip oil with retinol?
Rosehip oil and retinol go great together. When facing aging or sensitive skin, retinol combined with rosehip oil delivers miracles. Together, they help your skin cells revitalize and your skin to hydrate and tone. Rosehip oil keeps your skin fresh and makes it glow, while retinol increases collagen production and blood flow. Together, they cover both surface and deep layers of skin.
