There seems to be a relationship between acne and rose hip oil. Let us investigate. Rose hip oil comes from the "hip" or seed of a wild rose. The oil is rich in various natural ingredients that make it very good for removing various marks like sun burns, eczema, stretch marks, hyper pigmentation and acne marks. Yes many people will tell you that the rose hip oil is very good and effective for acne marks or acne blemishes.
Natural Treatment for Acne Prone Skin
Let us now study in detail what makes rose hip oil so good for our skin. Rose hip oil is rich in vitamin A, Linoleic acid, Oleic acid, Linolenic acid, Lycopene, Beta-carotene and essential fatty acids. These natural ingredients together help in keeping the skin healthy, smooth, wrinkle free and blemish free. The various properties in the oil make it very effective, particularly for getting rid of acne marks. But there is a problem as well. In some cases at least, it will make your skin oilier and close down the pores and this may lead to more acne if you are already acne prone.
Acne and rose hip oil works best when you have old acne marks from a while back, and have been acne free for some time now. In such a case, you can use the rose hip oil successfully to remove the blemishes. The best way to use it is to dampen your face with a little water and then take a few drops of the rose hip oil in your palm and carefully massage it on the face for 2-3 minutes. It is best to use in the evening time or at night as it makes your skin appear oily. It definitely helps with acne marks and blemishes and spots and scars.
What Causes Pimples?
unfortunately it does not solve acne. The rose hip oil only
addresses the symptoms and not the actual cause. Acne is
caused due to three very serious deep rooted
1. An imbalance in the level of hormones - When this happens, the sebum glands begin to make sebum or natural oil in high quantities.
2. Toxic Buildup - The human body makes toxins in large quantities but when these materials are not expelled, they start to build up within the body.
3. When there is a hormonal imbalance, the sebum glands become sensitive and over works and this combines with the toxins in the lymph and the blood. This promotes the acne bacteria.
But the fact remains that the local application of oil or any cream or gel can only help in relieving the symptoms but that cannot solve the problem completely. Acne and rose hip oil might at best offer temporary relief but the acne is sure to return because the root causes remain within the body. The holistic approach (the approach here is to treat the body as a whole) addresses the root cause and solves the acne problems completely and totally. By adopting a healthy diet, a healthy mind set, detoxification of the body and achieving the right hormonal balance helps in achieving not only a beautiful, blemish free smooth flawless skin, you also feel better overall. Adopt the holistic approach and gift yourself the skin you have always dreamt of.
