I don’t know about you guys, but my skin has been stressed. As one of the few people who have allergies all-year-round, I’m used to my inflamed, sensitive skin giving me a run for my money. Add that onto the time of the month, hormonal breakouts and just random food splurges, you have a recipe for flaky, dehydrated and sensitive skin.
Thankfully, I’ve been using the rosehip oil from The Ordinary for close to a year and always see immediate results. Not only is the product affordable, but it’s truly a skincare lifesaver.
Shop: The Ordinary Rosehip Oil, $9.80
You’ve probably heard of rosehip oil before, but if you haven’t, your skin is definitely missing out. Containing many essential fatty acids, including linoleic and linolenic acid, rosehip is a great option for hydrating dry, itchy skin. The oil also doesn’t clog pores, which makes it easily absorbable into the skin and allows the antioxidants to travel deep into the skin’s layers.
Additionally, it’s packed with vitamins A and C, which encourages skin cell turnover and aids in cell regeneration, boosting overall radiance.
As The Derm Review explains, “One of the active ingredients in rosehip oil for skincare is vitamin C. This nutrient is known for its ability to tighten skin and is a viable option for those curious about how to increase collagen production. Vitamin C is also responsible for fighting free radicals, which break down the skin (and the rest of the body) and are one of the leading causes of aging skin and wrinkles.”
One reviewer mentioned that the oil leaves their “face, neck and hands sooo soft, it is crazy.” Another reviewer, on the other hand, commented that the oil does hydrate for them, but “that’s about it.”
Like any skincare product, what works for some may not work for others, and it’s always highly recommended to do a patch test first.
Needless to say, my skin and I thank this product. And for less than $10? My bank account thanks this product as well.
