Rose hips are the edible part of a rose plant that contains sixty times the vitamin C content of citrus fruit. Studies have shown that orally ingest rose hips are an effective treatment against hyperpigmentation and skin wrinkles, as well as improve skin moisture and elasticity after four weeks if intake.
