Why rosehip seed oil is good for night-time skin care

Rosehip seed oil is like a bedtime superhero for your skin and the perfect way to treat dry skin. At Kiss the Moon, we believe it's a crucial ingredient in our award-winning night-time face oils. Here are seven reasons why it's great for your night-time skin care routine.

  1. Deep Hydration: While you sleep, your skin goes into repair mode, and rosehip seed oil is there to provide deep hydration. Its rich texture penetrates deeply into the skin, delivering moisture where it's needed most. This helps to replenish lost moisture and leaves your skin feeling soft, smooth, and plump by morning.
  2. Cell Regeneration: Rosehip seed oil is packed with vitamins, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids that support cell regeneration. As you snooze, these nutrients work tirelessly to repair and renew your skin, helping to fade fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging.
  3. Anti-Aging Benefits: Speaking of signs of aging, rosehip seed oil is a powerhouse when it comes to fighting them. It's loaded with antioxidants like vitamins A and C, which help to neutralize free radicals and prevent oxidative damage. This means fewer wrinkles, less sun damage, and a more youthful complexion over time.
  4. Scar Reduction: If you have scars or blemishes you'd like to minimise, rosehip seed oil can help with that too. Its ability to renew cells helps reduce scars and dark spots, giving your skin a clearer and more even appearance.d.
  5. Soothing and Calming: After being exposed to pollution and UV rays all day, your skin needs some tender loving care to recover. Rosehip seed oil has anti-inflammatory properties that help soothe and calm irritated skin, making it perfect for anyone dealing with redness, sensitivity, or inflammation.
  6. Non-Greasy Formula: Despite its rich texture, rosehip seed oil is surprisingly lightweight and absorbs quickly into the skin. This means you can slather it on before bed without worrying about it leaving behind a greasy residue or staining your pillowcase.
  7. Versatility: Whether you have dry, oily, sensitive, combination or itchy skin, rosehip seed oil is suitable for all skin types. It helps to balance oil production, regulate sebum, and nourish the skin without clogging pores or causing breakouts.


What makes Rosehip Seed Oil so special?

The reason Rosehip Seed Oil works so hard as a natural skin booster lies in its chemistry. It's rich in a variety of beneficial compounds that work wonders for your complexion. Here's a rundown of some of the key ingredients in rosehip oil and why they're so good for your skin:

  1. Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs): Rosehip oil is loaded with essential fatty acids, including omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9. These fatty acids are crucial for maintaining the skin's lipid barrier, which helps to lock in moisture and keep your skin hydrated and supple.
  2. Vitamins A, C, and E: These vitamins are powerful antioxidants that help protect the skin from environmental damage caused by free radicals. Vitamin A (retinol) promotes cell turnover and renewal, vitamin C brightens the complexion and boosts collagen production, while vitamin E nourishes and moisturises the skin.
  3. Linoleic Acid: Rosehip oil contains a high concentration of linoleic acid, an omega-6 fatty acid that helps to regulate sebum production and balance oily skin. It's particularly beneficial for acne-prone skin, as it can help unclog pores and reduce the risk of breakouts.
  4. Antioxidants: In addition to vitamins A, C, and E, rosehip oil contains other antioxidants such as beta-carotene, lycopene, and flavonoids. These antioxidants help neutralise free radicals, which can cause premature aging and damage to the skin.
  5. Phenols: Phenolic compounds in rosehip oil have anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, making them effective at soothing irritated skin and reducing redness and inflammation associated with conditions like eczema and rosacea.
  6. Triterpenoids: These compounds are known for their skin-regenerating properties, helping to promote wound healing, reduce scarring, and improve the overall texture and appearance of the skin.
  7. Phytosterols: Phytosterols help to strengthen the skin's barrier function, improve elasticity, and reduce water loss, keeping the skin hydrated and protected against environmental stressors.

All these wonderful components work together to nourish, protect, and rejuvenate the skin, making rosehip oil a versatile and effective skincare ingredient for all skin types. Whether you're looking to combat signs of aging, fade scars, or simply maintain a healthy complexion, rosehip oil has got you covered.

So, if you want to wake up to a radiant, rejuvenated complexion, consider adding Rosehip Seed oil to your night-time skincare routine. Your skin will thank you.
