Let's talk about some of rosehip oils skin benefits;
1. Its hydrating and moisturizing.
Hydration is key for keeping your skin soft and nourished. Rosehip oil contains essential fatty acids which help to strengthen cell walls and keep moisture in. Rosehip oil also has a small molecular structure so it can easily fit through pores and reach deeper skin layers.
