The Benefits of Vitamin C With Rose Hips for Skin Tone

Posted on May 31, 2019

Rose petals and hips — the berries underneath the petals — are used for medicinal and cosmetic purposes, especially for their anti-aging benefits and to help alleviate skin irritation. Rosewater is used as an astringent, and rose hips are combined with other ingredients such as vitamin C in lotions or “cosmeceuticals” to soothe, moisturize and tone skin, according to Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database. Rose hips are one of the richest sources of vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant often used to heal and protect skin.

Antioxidant Protection

The antioxidant vitamin C strengthens immunity and helps to fight infections, according to the Vitamin and Mineral Encyclopedia. Rose hips also provide a defense against infection, not only because of the vitamin C they contain but also because of other antioxidants and nutrients included in rose hips, such as vitamin E, zinc, bioflavonoids, flavonoids and tannins, according to Rose Magazine. When vitamin C is combined with rose hips in a topical solution, the concoction works overtime to protect skin and battle bacteria and viruses that affect skin.


Lotions and mixtures that include rose hips help tone and soothe swollen, inflamed or otherwise irritated skin. Rose hips also help to relieve and heal chapped and burned skin, according to herbal specialist Andrew Chevallier. Adding vitamin C helps inflammation as well, and besides putting a stop to new and irritating blemishes, vitamin C aids in alleviating aggravated pores and helps ease inflamed pimples, or acne, says Acne Skin Care.

Redness Alleviation

Topical products made with rose have a “tonic and astringent effect on the capillaries just below the skin surface,” which helps to diminish the redness due to enlarged capillaries, according to Rose Magazine. Vitamin C also helps make blood vessels stronger, and it decreases damage caused by harmful chemicals, according to the Vitamin and Mineral Encyclopedia.


Rose hip mixtures awaken and revitalize tired-looking skin and help reduce the signs of aging. Lotions and creams containing vitamin C help to rejuvenate facial skin when combined with certain constituents found in rose hips such as bioflavonoids, especially for skin aged by the sun, according to MedlinePlus. Vitamin C and rose hips topical solutions used for wrinkles and other effects of aging are typically applied once or twice a day. Avoid getting products made with vitamin C in your eyes or hair, however, as well as on clothes, advises MedlinePlus.

Taking a vitamin C supplement will also help thwart the effects of aging and help repair sun-damaged skin. Vitamin C revitalizes your skin also by advancing collagen formation, according to the Vitamin and Mineral Encyclopedia (see ref # 4).
