Beauty Tips: Scar Lightening

When you have pimples or acnes, there are always open wound after extraction. Here I advise you to use rosehip oil for better wound recovery. Rosehip oil contains plenty of vitamin C, which helps in promoting cell renewal, thus it helps to lighten scars, especially newly formed scar on the face & body.

You can add 1 or 2 drops of rosehip oil to your moisturizer before application. Apart from it, rosehip oil can be applied topically as a moisturizer, it is advisable to be diluted with other base oils such as jojoba oil, olive oil or sweet almond oil to reduce tingling effect or redness that may happen to some people. In addition, rosehip oil can only be applied during night time because it contains tretinoin (vitamin A), a photosensitive compound. For maximum result, mix 4 drops of lemon essential oil in 10ml rosehip oil for scar lightening.

Wheatgerm oil can be an alternative for rosehip oil if rosehip oil is not available, it could also be consumed (1 teaspoon daily) to contribute same function as rosehip oil because both of them contain vitamin E.

Brands recommended: Trilogy rosehip oil (all tns outlet), florame rosehip oil, why not? wheatgerm oil
