Two to three drops of rose hip oil is recommended several times daily to clear up localized skin blemishes, reports Kosmea Skin Care. Two to three drops of rose hip oil can be used as a daily moisturizer, and can also be used to treat dry skin conditions in infants.
Rose hip oil has been used as a beauty product for centuries and provides a multitude of benefits for hair and skin, reports Beauty and Tips magazine. To treat dry or dull hair, warm rose hip oil can be applied to the hair and scalp and left for an hour. The oil should then be rinsed from the hair. Applying rose hip oil to the scalp for thirty minutes is an effective treatment for dandruff, but also needs to be rinsed out with shampoo.
Rose hip oil is rich in essential fatty acids, and is a powerful ingredient in many anti-aging facial products, adds Beauty and Tips magazine. Applying rose hip oil directly to dry skin on the face, elbows and ankles yields excellent results, and can reduce the formation of scar tissue. A mixture of rose hip oil and water works well as a daily moisturizer, and regular application can reduce the appearance of fine lines. Even dry or weak nails can benefit from a regular nightly massage with rose hip oil.
