Is Rosehip Oil Good For Acne: 10 PROS & CONS


Rosehip Oil For Acne

Variety as they say, is the spice of life – All thanks to Mother Nature, this assertion would have been out rightly impossible. In fact, nature has endowed us humans with a wide range of substances, materials and resources to choose from in order to meet our day-to-day needs. This is why it will be unseemly for one to look beyond this world in a bid to address our daily concerns.

While people’s daily concerns vary and in some instances the concerns tend to be generic, it is unarguably true that everyone will be troubled when they do not look the part and play the role as they are meant to in their daily lives. That said. Everyone will obviously express concern when they have to battle acne and other obvious skin conditions that make them look unappealing.

As a result of this, most people run around looking for skin care solutions to fight these skin conditions and to regain their appealing look. Of course, the best bet would be proven solutions in Mother Nature, but most people fail to do this. Instead, they run to solutions that are impractical, unpredictable and have their degree of effectiveness in question. In fact, some are an outright fraud, waste of time and money.

In all these running around, one tested and proven solution nature has blessed us with, is the rosehip oil.



The rosehip oil is made from the hip of a rose as the name implies. This is known as the Rosa Moschata (or rubiginosa in some quarters); which is the part of a rose holding the seeds and petals of a rose together. The oil is extracted from this hip and seeds of the rose after the petals must have fallen off.

When extracted, the extracted oil contains vitamin C and B carotene, vitamin A, and fatty acids. This oil is often categorized as dry oil, so whenever it is applied, the skin absorbs it in such a way that it merges with the skin texture and kicks acne and other skin conditions away in no time.

The supplements contained in the rosehip oil helps to regenerate skin cells and rebuild damaged tissues. As we would later see in this article, the hidden advantages in the rosehip oil are numerous.

Therefore, in order not to look like someone striking two clocks together just to understand their internal workings, it behooves on us to consider the benefits and demerits of using the rosehip oil. This way, we would not only have avoided being one sided, but we would also have been able to avoid being Neanderthal in approach.



Apart from the fact that the rosehip oil is rich in supplements that are of immense benefits to the skin, the rosehip oil also has some other advantages. They are listed in no particular order:

1. It Smoothens And Regenerates The Skin.

The rosehip oil is known to be highly effective in getting a smooth skin, giving the skin a new look and leaving the skin without any spot or blemish.

2. Improves Skin Texture And Removes Spots.

The rosehip oil contains antioxidants lycopene, which is used to improve the skin texture and protects the skin from spots and wrinkles.

3. Hydrates The Skin

The fatty acids in the rosehip oil keeps the skin hydrated and is useful for people with sensitively-dry skins. It moisturizes the skin and keeps it well hydrated.

4. Helps The Skin To Fight Acne

The rosehip oil, since it absorbs into the skin, gets into the skin pores and unclogs dead cells and serum responsible for acne buildup, right from the skin pores.

5. Protects The Skin From Sun Damage

Those skin conditions you get because of too much exposure to the sun will no longer be the case with rosehip oil. The rosehip oil will prevent sun damage and will give your skin that appealing and exquisite look.

6. Fights Scars

The rosehip oil is very good in combatting those hideous scars you never thought would leave your skin. Gradual application of the rosehip oil kicks the scars away in no time.



The rosehip oil is like an elixir, but an elixir in the wrong hand can be destructive. Therefore, it is important for anyone who intend to use the rosehip oil in the treatment of acne to know understand the DON’TS in using the rosehip oil. To be honest, most people who feel the rosehip oil is ineffective in the treatment of acne do not know about these DON’TS and because of not having this knowledge, they find themselves struggling to get the desired result when they use the rosehip oil.

1. The rosehip oil can become smelly when it is kept in a place that is not cool and dry.

2. Can have adverse effect when it is not applied, as it should be.

3. The rosehip oil can be tried with other ingredients, but the necessary findings must be made to ensure that the rosehip oil and the ingredient you intend to combine can go hand-in-hand.

4. The rose hip oil smells of herbs and this could be a turn off for few people, although when it is eventually applied, it hardly retains the herb smells on your face.



There is really no hard and fast rule on how the rosehip oil should be applied. Although, most people apply in the manner below.

Like every facial treatment, the first step is to ensure that your face is properly exfoliated; this will enable the oil to absorb into the skin without any interference.

After this, the next step is to apply the rosehip oil on your hands.

Then you should gently dab the oil on your palm to your face. The essence of doing this instead of rubbing it on your skin is to allow the rosehip oil to absorb deeply into your skin.

Many have used the rosehip oil in the treatment of acne and the results have been astounding. Therefore, from this article and the astounding evidence, the belief is that you will have all your concerns on how effective the rosehip oil can be in treating acne laid to rest. However, if you still have a doubt, why not give it a trial and watch as the cliché of a trial convincing you actually happens.
