Pigmentation is not uncommon. It is caused by the UV rays of the sun. (This is why sunblock is important!) With the antioxidant properties in rosehip, it helps to reduce the production of the pigmentation and the vitamin C in rosehip will help to lighten the dark spots.

With rosehip's moisturizing property, it helps to reduce the irritation and redness. The antioxidants will calm the bumps and pimples and fade the visible blood vessels too. On the other hand, the fatty acids improve the skin's flexibility and helps in skin repairing too!
Better skin barrier means skin protection against bacteria! The antioxidants and fatty acid is crucial to protect your cell membranes from breaking down. With healthy skin cells, it acts as a skin barrier to protect your skin from bacteria, which can lead to pimple outbreaks or even skin infection!
