Using Rosehip Oil to Heal Your Acne Scars

Rosehip Oil has often been called a 'miracle' solution to acne scarring. Why? Because in most cases it works really really well. If you were to try just one thing for your acne scars, Rosehip oil is the one that I'd ask you to try. It's that good. The oil is especially effective at helping to fade particularly red or inflamed looking scarring however it can help with pitting as well.

Using it is very simple. An hour or so before bed, massage a teaspoon or so's worth onto your skin. Now it doesn't smell the nicest - I'll get to that in a second - but stick with me for a bit. Just before bed wash it off well (if you are acne prone this is a step you MUST not miss). Use a natural soap but make sure you finish off the washing with a good rinse with no soap.

OK - so it does smell quite strong. You're potentially going to have that on your face for some time and you really don't think you can stand the scent. Thankfully for you, you can blend the mixture with other essential oils which have a nicer scent. One of the favourites of mine is lavender oil - smells great and also helps to add moisture and texture to the skin. Of course, the majority of essential oils are beneficial in some way so you can simply choose your favourite one. The only thing I advise is that you buy the best that you can afford. There are many essential oils out there that while they seem cheap, they are actually just 'filler' oils with the scent added to make it smell nice. For therapeutic use, please make sure what you're buying is the real deal. So stick with that.

How long does rosehip oil take to help heal acne scars? How long's a piece of string? Depending on a million different factors, Rosehip oil can take between a week, a month, a year or more. The only way you're going to be able to find out if Rosehip oil can make a different to your acne scarring (and your life!) is to give it a solid test for a month. If you really have adverse reactions to it, stop but I would advise you to make a schedule and stick to it. Spend one minute printing out a calendar that you can use to mark off when you've done the treatment. That's really the only way to get results so don't sell yourself short!
