#6 Rosehip Oil
Lorraine Dalmeier, principal of online beauty formulation learning portal Formula Botanica, has declared rosehip oil as ‘the best oil for scars’. In her article, she shares findings by Dr. Fabiola Carbajal Montiel, a scientist at the Hospital van Buren in Chile. The doctor’s findings were based on her research on 180 individuals with a variety of scars, from acne scarring to deep wrinkles and burn scars. After a four-month period, the doctor recorded a marked improvement in the scars of her test subjects – even on those with 20-year-old scars.
How to use: Apply directly on scar or buy a product with a high percentage of rosehip oil in its formulation such as Kora Organics Noni Glow Face Oil.
Where to get: We love Sukin’s Certified Organic Rosehip Oil available at leading pharmacies locally.
