Few products deserve to reach holy grail status in your beauty cabinet, and the underrated rosehip oil is up there as one of the best investments you can make.

It’s a natural oil that has been used since ancient times, so it has clearly stuck around for a good reason.

In 2013 Miranda Kerr told the world she uses the product on her skin every night before going to bed, and Goop’s Gwyneth Paltrow is also a fan.

A source told US Weekly that Kate Middleton loves rosehip, and she uses it “in her daily skincare regiment,” and she loves the “effect it has on her skin.”

It isn’t just the star power behind this solution that speaks volumes. These women are also famous for their decision to age gracefully without cosmetic intervention, and they look undeniably youthful and fresh.

The surprisingly affordable product derives from the rose canina rose bush from Chile, and it’s pressed from the seeds of the rose plant’s fruit.

It comes with an endless list of benefits, and there are even peer-reviewed studies proving its effectiveness.

In 2015 a study by Dove Medical Press found rosehip powder offers “several anti-aging properties,” like the ability to retain moisture, and it can boost collagen production.

Rosehip is packed with vitamins A, C, E, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids, which help reverse signs of sun damage and hyperpigmentation.

It’s also a magic hero for acne scars, but for oily skin, spot treat the mark to avoid congestion – and watch those dark spots disappear in a few days.

According to Byrdie, the oil works for all skin types and can be applied any time of the day, but it may be best for those experimenting with retinoids to avoid the product because it’s high in vitamin A.

It can also fit at any point in your routine, but it works best before applying moisturiser.
