Dr. Oz's Latest Wrinkle Fighter You Can Find at a Health Food Store
Do you wish that you could find an all-natural anti-wrinkle cream that you can trust that is both affordable and safe for the skin and has proven wrinkle fighting abilities? Would you like to look 7 years younger in 7 weeks? According to a recent episode of The Dr. Oz Show, his latest wrinkle fighter is as close as your local health food store and is his preference over using coconut oil for treating dry skin.
“It prevents wrinkles and it treats eczema. It helps restore lost elasticity of the skin―especially when it’s gone dry. It helps with those very fine lines by softening them,” says Dr. Oz as he introduces to viewers his latest wrinkle fighting solution recommendation that is available in health food stores everywhere—rose hip seed oil.
Rose hip seed oil is extracted from the seeds of the rose bushes Rosa moschata and Rosa rubinbinosa that grow wild in the southern Andes. The medicinal use of rose hips has a long history that traces back to the ancient Egyptians and the Mayans that today is used for hydrating the skin, lightening dark spots (photo-aging), soothing itchiness (even in severe cases of eczema) and reducing the scars and fine lines that are the foundation of wrinkling. Some sources recommend it over the use of Botox for fighting wrinkles.
One of the essential ingredients of rose hip seed oil is provitamin A—a precursor molecule of vitamin A that has many of the biological benefits found in beta-carotenes such as those in fish oils, egg yolk, milk products, and leafy vegetables. Extraction of the rose hip seed oil is done by either a cold press process or by slow boiling method of which the cold press process is believed to result in a more beneficial formulation.
Aside from its anti-wrinkle benefits and the fact that it is an all-natural skin care product, many women favor it because it is relatively non-greasy and super light in comparison to other skincare products such as coconut oil, jojoba and Shea butter. According to Dr. Oz as well as some skincare specialists and dermatologists, rose hip seed oil should be considered in treating teen skin problems.
“It’s a natural remedy of acne too, because it does not have an oily consistency to it,” says Dr. Oz.
