Beauty Nuskhe: 5 Rosehip Oil Anti-Ageing DIYs To Reduce Fine Lines & Wrinkles

Rosehip seed oil is extracted from the seed left behind by the flowers. It is a pale, fairly transparent oil that is recognised by its distinct aroma and orangish tinge. Rich in vitamins A and C, along with polyunsaturated fatty acids, it is known for being an anti-ageing remedy. 

Vitamin C comprises antioxidants, jo aapke twacha mein raunak laate hai, especially if your skin is dull. It also reduces hyperpigmentation with time, prevents premature signs of ageing, and protects the skin from free radical damage. Vitamin A, on the other hand, slows down the natural breakdown process of elastin and collagen, which if not kept in check can speed up skin ageing. Polyunsaturated fatty acids convert to prostaglandins in the skin, which is required for tissue regeneration and cellular membrane. Together, these three core properties are what make rosehip seed oil the ultimate DIY ingredient for younger-looking, blemish-free skin.
