Victoria Beckham's a fan, Miranda Kerr loves it (and we know she's all over her skincare routine) and now we've discovered that the queen (ok Duchess) of the perfect complexion Kate Middleton is a fan - yup, we're talking about rosehip oil.

Specifically, Trilogy's Certified Organic Rosehip Oil.

Supposedly the secret to Kate's flawless complexion during her pregnancy with Princess Charlotte, the sought after rosehip oil is obviously a winner, selling one bottle every 20 seconds. That's more often than our mid-work Love Island discussions.

'Kate continues to use rosehip oil in her daily skincare regiment,' a source close to Kate told Us Weekly, adding, 'She loves the effect is has on her skin. [Her mother] Carole [Middleton] is also a fan.'

Known for its major skincare benefits, we can see why Kate would be all over the complexion-saving face oil. From reducing redness during acne breakouts and seriously hydrating skin with its natural fatty acids, to minimising the dreaded stretch marks, rosehip oil is kind of a one stop miracle skincare shop.

Not sure what to do with it? We've got you sorted on how to make the most of Middleton's go-to skincare saviour:

1. As A Face Oil

Pretty obvious we know, but still an ideal way to use rosehip oil. Rich in both vitamin C and retinoic acid, a form of vitamin A, rosehip oil helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and brightens skin - simply smooth three drops across clean skin for a much-needed shot of hydration.

Oily skin sufferers can use it too - applying face oil helps to balance how much oil your skin naturally produces therefore making your skin less oily in the long run. Genius!

2. On Scars And Stretch Marks

Not just for your face, rosehip oil has been proven to help reduce scars and stretch marks as well. According to a test conducted by Trilogy, 43% of women reported that it minimised their stretch marks and 41% said it improved the colour of their scars. Ideal for a post-Princess Charlotte beauty routine eh Kate?

3. As A Make-Up Remover

One for sensitive skin sufferers - swap your harsh cleanser for rosehip oil when removing make-up. Trust us, your eyes will thank you for it.

4. On A Dry Scalp

Basically, rosehip oil is great for everything, including dry, flaky scalps. Simply massage into your scalp and roots before you go to bed (pop on a hair turban to protect those White Company pillow cases) and rinse in the morning. You'll be dandruff free and glossy to boot.

5. On Cuticles

Soothe shredded cuticles by massaging a drop or two of rosehip oil into them post-manicure.

6. To Chill Out

Feeling frazzled but no time for a swanky massage? Get yourself into a comfy chair or lying down, pop three drops of rosehip oil into your palms and take three deep breaths inhaling the amazing scent. It'll chill you out in no time.
