The rosehip oil is an essential oil extracted from the rose plant fruits and seeds. Rich in Vitamin C and essential fatty acids, the rosehip oil has an array of skin-nourishing properties that work wonder on your facial derma. Before you apply anything for acne and acne scar treatment, herein are some insights on rosehip oil uses to take note:

Vitamin C in Rosehip Oil Alleviates Acne Scars and Hyperpigmentation

The high content of Vitamin C and antioxidants, in rosehip, controls acne scars, and aids in the production of elastin and collagen. It acts as an astringent to control oily secretion from the large open skin pores while reducing them. Linoleic acid, a type of Omega-6 fatty acid in rose hip aids in controlling sebum oil production- an eminent cause of acne eruptions. It also reduces the formation of whiteheads and blackheads.

Types of Acne and Acne Scars to Treat with Rosehip Oil

Topical rose hip is anti-inflammatory so it can control the following types of acne breakouts- cysts, papules, nodules, and pustules. There are differences in the type of acne scar you may have. If it is an old scar resulting from an acne break out a long time ago, it is easy and effective to treat with Indus Valley rose hip essential oil. It is also effective in treating issues such as skin discoloration and pigmentation.

However, if you are looking for a remedy for depressed acne scars, you may need to look for other ingredients to get quick and helpful results.

How to Use Rosehip Oil for Acne and Scar Removal

Rosehip oil despite being an essential oil is safe to apply directly on the skin without blending any carrier oil. Herein are a few easy tips to use rose hip oil to reduce acne and acne scar problems: 

Before applying rosehip treatment, it is important to clean your skin with tea tree oil-based cleanser and pat dry.

Treatment for Acne

Mix equal portions of pure rosehip oil, lavender oil, and jojoba oil. Store this mixed oil in a clean and sterilized glass bottle. Apply a few drops of this mix on the entire face and massage properly for deep penetration.

Treatment for Acne Scars and Pigmentation

Take a drop of pure rose hip oil and pat on the scarred area. Gently rub in circular motions to allow quick absorption of the oil into the skin inner layers.

Patch Test

Rose hip is a natural essential oil and healthy for most skin types and remedial applications at home. However, if you have sensitive skin, it is recommended to take a small patch test on the forearm before using for home-based treatments (unless advised by a doctor).

·         Apply a drop of pure rosehip oil on your forearm.

·         Cover the applied area with a bandage and keep for 48 hours.

If there is itchiness, red sore or swelling, stop using it. If nothing happens, it is safe for your skin. You may then start using the product as needed.
