What's the Fuss about Argan and Rosehip Oils?

October 02, 2018 | BY Erin Driess

Natural oils have been such a craze lately within the mainstream beauty industry, especially Rosehip and Argan oil. When the word “oil” is brought up in the same sentence with “skin care” many are taken back with the negative stereotype oil has acquired. But when you see what these two oils have to offer and how they can preserve your timeless beauty I promise you won’t be disappointed.

What is Rosehip Oil?

Rosehip Oil is from the rose hips bush, which are the fruit left behind after a rose has flowered and the petals have dropped. The oil is extracted from the fruit of the bush.  The inside of the fruit is an orange-ish color so the Rosehip Oil will have that same tint. Now it won’t have that pretty floral scent since it doesn’t come directly from the flower itself. It is Fragrance Free.

What are some of  benefits of Rosehip Oil?

1.Cosmetic Anti Aging benefits: Rosehip Oil has phenomenal cosmetic anti-aging properties. Rosehip Oil is full of antioxidants like vitamin c which helps with reducing the appearance of wrinkles and helps reduce the appearance of redness. Vitamin A, another amazing antioxidant, has a small molecular structure for easy penetration, which helps with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well.

2.Stretch Marks/Scarring: Along side those antioxidants are fatty acids that help with improving the suppleness look of the skin. Since these fatty acids have great emollient properties they can also help with the appearance of flakiness of the skin.

3.Hydration: Those fatty acids that I mentioned earlier, well they have more benefits (surprise!!). The fatty acids with in rose hip oil, such as linoleic and linoleic acid help lock in the moisture within your skin and help promote a youthful-looking, radiant complexion.

How do you use the oil?  

Rosehip Oil is considered a dry oil which means it is easily absorbed by the skin. This makes it amazing for oily skin types ( about time us oily skin people catch a break!).

Moisturizer: Place 2-3 drops on the tips of your fingers and massage into your skin in a gentle upward motion. Note that this oil is a dry oil so it will absorb quickly so apply more if necessary.  

Lip oil: Place one drop of oil on lips and rub in until absorbed. For maximum results exfoliate lips prior to treatment.  

Now in comparison let’s move on to Argan oil.

What is Argan Oil?

Argan oil is made from the nuts of the Argan tree that resides in Morocco. Argan oil is known to be nature’s superfood for the skin.

What are some of  the benefits ?

1. Cosmetic anti-aging benefits: Argan oil is rich in vitamin A and E which helps with the appearance of natural exfoliation of dead skin and can help reduce redness and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles leaving the skin feeling more plump.

2. Hair and nail care: When argan oil is applied externally, the vitamin E content helps boost the overall wellness of the hair and nails which helps with frizziness and dry cuticles. This oil can leave your hair silky, shiny and visibly healthier.

3. Acne/oily skin  : Argan oil is high in both oleic (omega 9) and linoleic acid ( omega 6) which help decrease the appearance of redness and breakouts and can help increase the moisture content of the skin. 

4. Moisturizer: With the high fatty acid and vitamin E content of Argan oil, this product is great for the natural boost your skin needs. This oil absorbs easily and doesn’t leave a greasy residue and it’s non - irritating.

    How do you use Argan Oil ?

    The options are limitless with this oil. It can be used as a lightweight moisturizer, gentle makeup remover, lip conditioner, cuticle softener, tame frizzy hair and helps aide in the health of your skin.

    Moisturizer: Place 2-3 drops on the tips of your fingers and massage into your skin in a gentle upward motion. Note that this oil is a dry oil so it will absorb quickly so apply more if necessary.

    Dry feet: Place 2 drops into your hands and massage thoroughly into your feet. Apply more if needed to desired area. Put on a pair of fuzzy socks and get a good night's rest and wake up to baby soft feet.

    Hair care: Take 2-3 drops in the palm of your hand and evenly distribute the oil from mid length of hair to the ends. Style as desired. For a deep conditioning treatment massage into the scalp, hair and the tips and then wrap your hair up to preventing staining. You can leave this in overnight ( or just a few hours if you desire). Rinse with cool water and style as desired.
