Everyone is claiming to use this stuff. What do I say about it?!?
“There is no scientific proof that rosehip oil is the best thing for your skin,” explains Dr. Gary Goldenberg, medical director of the dermatology faculty practice at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine. “Rosehip oil certainly can be beneficial since it contains fatty acids. Some also claim that it has antioxidant properties. However, no proof exists that this is true and that it actually helps your skin regenerate.”
While Goldenberg does agree it can provide some moisturizing relief for those suffering from dryness, individuals with oily skin may want to think twice before slathering it on.
“Since it’s an oil, I would be cautious to use it in acne-prone patients,” he said.
