I’ve had these little tan spots on my temple for months. They aren’t like the beauty marks that cover the rest of my body, and I’ve had the worst time figuring out what they are.
My sister, bless her heart, finally brought some clarity to the situation. “Mackenzie,” she said, “They’re age spots.” Age spots?! *Cries in aging millennial.* Armed with the knowledge of my skin’s betrayal against me and a bottle of rosehip oil, I decided it was time to take action.
Rosehip oil is rife with skin-brightening, glow-inducing benefits that make it sound like the crowning glory of skincare oils. Victoria Beckham loves it, Kiera Knightly swears by it, and even Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge and future Queen of England herself, is obsessed with the stuff.
So, what’s the deal? Does it really work or is it just another failed beauty fad, like placenta pills and sheet masks infused with gold? I grabbed my vial of Pai Rosehip Oil BioRegenerate and sat down with board-certified dermatologist Anna Chacon, M.D. to explore the what’s, why’s, and how-to’s of skincare’s latest sweetheart.
