Not all rosehip oils are the same ... It's good to always read the labels. There are many products on the market that, once packaged, are totally "inert" in active principles and properties since the methods of cultivation, handling and production literally "kill" the active principles of the treatment or, worse, can be adulterated. For that reason, do not play it when you buy an oil, and more if it will be like rosehip, which is supposed to be a must of beauty that you will always have at home. Remember also that oils have a much higher skin penetration rate than serums! That is why, as we always recommend in Biosplendor, watch what you put on! You can get a treatment that works wonders if you choose well or, on the contrary, destroy the largest organ that we have in our body! And not only that, remember that everything we apply always always conditions to a greater or lesser extent to our entire system. Let's take care!.

But the main reason for our article is not based mainly on advice. As we started at the beginning, articles about how wonderful the rosehip can be for our skin are many.

Its continuous application fights wrinkles, stimulates the production of collagen and smoothes the cutaneous surface. The vitamin A present in rosehip also helps to lighten brown spots induced by the sun, increasing cell renewal and blocking an enzyme needed to produce more melanin and, therefore, the formation of more spots. The result is a more uniform and shiny complexion. People suffering from acne will see how, by slowing down the production of sebum with its use, pimples and pimples will disappear. The pores remain much cleaner and clearer.

It is a rich source of antioxidants that fights free radicals that cause the signs of aging, the formation of spots, the destruction of collagen and even the formation of certain skin cancers. It is so powerful that its topical use reduces wrinkles, dark spots and pigmentation problems. Reduce the speed with which aging is making a dent in our skin. The final appearance will be younger and healthier. It is a very restorative vitamin that fights the effects of sun damage and stimulates the creation of new cells to repair the most damaged skin.
