Feels good to have a bit of a chill to the air, doesn’t it? Now that the smoke is clearing and we’re on the edge of fall, you’ll notice the rosebushes have hips in full splendor. Rose hips are often mentioned for their high vitamin C content and the rejuvenating qualities they add to tea, but did you know the oil of rose hip seeds has powerful anti-aging qualities?
The quantity of beta-carotene they contain protects the skin and increases what is called “cell turnover” (the creation of new skin cells and discarding of old ones.) Its fatty acids also get converted to prostaglandins when applied topically, which help regenerate tissues and cell membranes. It stimulates new collagen, improves skin tone, and can help reduce the effects of eczema and acne scarring. Rose hip seed oil is a signature ingredient in all current and future Skin and Sky products.
Rose hips have substantial anti-inflammatory properties and can help reduce the redness and puffiness on the skin's surface. The oil will also tighten your pores while stimulating collagen creation and adding elasticity, which together make skin look brighter and younger.
