How much do I use? When should I apply? How does it work into a skincare routine? Read on for all your rosehip questions answered.

How much oil to use

The secret to using rosehip seed oil is a little goes a long way. If you’re left with an oily residue on your skin after applying, you’re likely using too much. 2-3 drops are generally enough. Warm between the fingertips and gently massaged into skin.

How to incorporate into your regular skincare routine

We’re all about catering to a range of skincare needs, from the fuss-free to the 15-step beauty junkies. So, there’s no right or wrong way of using our oil. But a handy rule (and this applies to all skincare layering), we generally recommend applying the most concentrated products first. This allows for maximum absorption, with no barrier from other product formulations. So, apply rosehip seed oil after cleansing, exfoliating and toning, but before moisturising.

For the face

Three drops, twice a day. It’s so simple and such and easy thing to do to reap big rewards. This essential fatty acid rich oil (including omega 6 fatty acids) is loved by skin, and it will drink it up. Not a fan on putting oil directly on your face, no problem. Simple add a couple drops to your moisturiser (day or night cream) before applying to the skin and you’ll still get all the benefits.

For scars

First you need to wait for the wound to completely heal, we don’t advise applying rosehip seed oil to broken skin. As soon as you’re sealed up, start applying rosehip seed oil regularly with gentle, circular massage, at least twice a day to the affected area.

For stretchmarks

Stretchmarks are a type of scar and should be worn with pride. As above, apply rosehip seed oil regularly with gentle, circular massage, at least twice a day to the affected area.

For a growing baby bump

Use rosehip seed oil to help support the skin on the belly as you go through this amazing transformation. It’s such a special and unique time, taking a little extra care by regularly massaging rosehip seed oil into your belly throughout pregnancy will not only support your skin, but it may also help you connect with baby.

For body

While rosehip seed oil is precious, it can care for the skin all over your body. You might need to be heavier handed than 2-3 drops, but don’t hesitate to do so. This nourishing oil can hydrate and improve the overall health of skin from top to toe.

For hair

Here’s a handy tip. After applying rosehip seed oil to your body or face, run any remaining oil left on your hands through the ends of your hair to give it a little hydration boost.

For cuticles and nails

Take some time during a Netflix session to massage a drop or two into your cuticles and nails.
