Nothing says decadence, like swanning into your bathroom in a silk robe and massaging a hydrating oil onto your face before bed. But with so many to choose from, how do you pick which oil will work best for your skin? Grapeseed, marula, jojoba, and argan oils all come with a host of beauty benefits, but when it comes to the most universal, versatile, nighttime winner, nothing has (and deserves) more hype than rosehip oil.
Filled with nourishing vitamins A and C and essential fatty acids, rosehip oil can help reduce the appearance of acne scars and dullness, can help fight inflammation and hyperpigmentation, and can increase skin elasticity, so it's no shock why the oil is one of Kate Middleton (and her mother's!) favorite skin care products.
Not to be confused with rose oil, which is made from rose petals, rosehip oil is pressed from the fruit and seeds of a rose bush. Adeline Kikam, DO, board certified dermatologist and founder of Brown Skin Derm recommends adding a couple of drops to your moisturizer to boost its effectiveness or to use it as the final step of your skincare routine.
