Remember when skincare routines were three steps: cleanse, tone and moisturise?

Not anymore. Today, there are all sorts of products vying for a place in your bathroom cabinet.

Rosehip oil, for example, has become one of the skincare products du jour. But how does rosehip oil fit into your daily routine? And should rosehip oil be used alongside – or in addition to – your existing products?

Taking Trilogy’s Certified Organic Rosehip Oil as an example, let’s look at the facts.

Benefits of rosehip oil

Unlike moisturisers, rosehip oil doesn’t contain water. Just oil. This means it helps nourish and hydrate the skin and keeps the skin’s barrier healthy. Rosehip oil’s essential fatty acids (omega 3 and 6)) also mean it can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Plus, rosehip oil doesn’t cause breakouts, is suitable for most skin types and doesn’t leave any residue on the skin.

Benefits of moisturiser

The primary function of a moisturiser is to hydrate, but they can also soothe and plump the skin. They are designed to sink into the deeper layers of the skin – and they only become active when that happens.

Should you make the switch from moisturiser to Rosehip oil?

If your skin is naturally hydrated, then you can certainly give it a go. But if you’ve got thirsty, dry skin that benefits from plenty of hydration, then a combination of both rosehip oil and moisturiser would be best.

Each one has its pros – from tackling the signs of ageing to intense moisturisation – but a combination of the two gives you double the benefits.

Make sure you apply rosehip oil after your moisturiser. This will help the moisturiser absorb better, and the oil will create an extra layer of nourishment and lock the moisture in.

Make Trilogy’s Certified Organic Rosehip Oil the fourth step in your regular skincare routine. You won’t regret it.
