Give Your Skin an MOT with Rosehip Oil

I have long been encouraging the inclusion of rosehip in diets (tea, syrup, jelly) as they are an extremely rich source of vitamin C which encourages collagen production (collagen is the naturally-occurring protein that helps to keep skin smooth and youthful) and now I want to tell you about the oil from rosehip seeds.

Clinical studies have shown that it can soften scars, reduce pigmentation and improve the appearance of fine lines courtesy of not only the protective plant chemicals and essential fatty acids it offers but also because it is rich in a natural source of vitamin A in the form of trans-retinoic acid. The seed oil from Chilean rosehips form the basis of a pioneering range of skin products from Rio Rosa which have caught the eye of celebrities and royals, not to mention the rest of us!
