12 Skin Benefits of Rose & Rosehip Extracts

With quarantine in full swing and warmer weather on its way, what better time to perfect your summer skincare routine? Sure, a good highlight-bronzer combo will give you the summer glow you’re looking for, but real glow starts at the skin-care level, before the makeup. You know that here at withSimplicity we LOVE our ingredients, so let’s talk about two of our favorites: rose & rosehip. Believe it or not they’re actually two completely different ingredients, but they both work wonders for your skin.

Let’s start with rose- the beautiful flower we all know and love. Rose can be found in:  

    withSimplicity Beet the Clock Beet Powder & Rose Rejuvenating Pro-Age Mask

    Rose Petal Lip Balm | withSimplicity
    Pro-Age Toner | withSimplicity

    As far as ingredients go, rose comes in a few different forms: rose flower oil, rose flower powder, rose petal, and so on. No matter what form it comes in, rose is packed with benefits for your skin, including:

    • Hydration
    • Blemish and acne treatment
    • Reduce the signs of aging
    • Reduce the appearance of scars
    • Reduce the symptoms of skin conditions like eczema and rosacea
    • Aromatherapy: reducing stress, improving sleep, and releasing anxiety

    So if that’s rose, you’re probably wondering, “Then what is rosehip?” Rosehips are the berry-like fruits that grow on various types of wild roses, particularly in the colder months after the rose flowers have died off. Look familiar?


    Rose Hip Flower

    Rosehip can be found in: 

    Under Eye Elixir | withSimplicity

    Pore Minimizing Face Primer | withSimplicity

    Hydra Lift Pro-Age Sheet Mask | withSimplicity  

    The ingredient rosehip is extracted from the seeds of wild rose plants, and comes in both a powder and an oil. Similar to rose, rosehip is jam packed with benefits for your skin, which include:

    • Protecting your skin from environmental stressors such as chemicals, pollutants, and harsh weather
    • Reducing inflammation, redness, and irritation
    • Rich source of vitamins (A,E, & D), nutrients, and antioxidants
    • Added moisture and hydration
    • Fighting stretch marks 
    • Brighten the skin
