The aging process can be hard on the body, and especially on our faces. If you’re looking for a natural remedy that can help with reducing the appearance of age spots, rose hip oil is widely regarded as the go-to choice. Some may be off-put by the fact that it’s not “FDA-approved” to help with age spots, but it’s important that you realize the FDA doesn’t regulate the cosmetics industry as much as they regulate medicines and food. Therefore, when choosing the skin care products that will work for you, one of the best references will be the experience from other users.
There are a multitude of people who swear by rose hip oil to help treat their age spots, and for good reason. Rose hip oil contains high amounts of omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids, as well as vitamin A. This combination allows it to be an effective natural remedy for many inflammatory issues as well as age spots directly.
If you incorporate rose hip oil into your skin care routine, you can expect to see some improvement with eczema, dermatitis, acne, and even scarring – all of which are wonderful benefits without the need for expensive and dangerous chemical mixtures. Essential oils usually have a higher by-volume price than their non-natural counterparts, but you will use a lot less and you won’t be putting harmful toxins into your body.
It’s important to understand that not all essential oils are formulated for direct use on skin, and you should speak with your aromatherapy specialist to determine if the one you choose has been approved for undiluted use. For most oils, however, you simply need to mix about 10 drops of oil into your preferred thinner. We recommend using an unscented facial lotion or an alcohol-free toner, for best results.
