Rose water has tons of benefits. You can use it in various ways to enhance your skin and overall wellbeing. No matter what your skin type is, this “wonder of nature” can bring you lots of goodness!
Let’s talk about some of the benefits of rose water before I let you in on how you can use it to achieve simply gorgeous skin.
The benefits of rose water
Rose water brings benefits to all skin types. It’s great for soothing and cooling irritated or sensitive skin, balancing oily or acne-prone skin, rejuvenating and softening mature skin, and revitalising normal skin.
Rose water is packed with antioxidants and an array of vitamins. Therefore, it can also help prevent the signs of ageing, such as fine lines and wrinkles, while nourishing skin at the same time.
Rose water also has natural anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and antibacterial properties.
Nine ways to use rose water for beautiful skin
#1: To reduce or prevent under-eye puffiness
Place a bottle of rose water in the fridge for half an hour, then apply some of it on a cotton pad cut in half and gently place the pad under your eye. It will help soothe the delicate skin under your eyes and prevent or reduce puffiness.
#2: To freshen up your complexion
Especially in the spring- or summertime, rose water can become your faithful helper and friend, caring for your skin like nothing else. Just mist rose water over your face to instantly hydrate, nourish and freshen up your complexion.
#3: In a hot bubble bath
Add two cups of rose water to your bubble bath for a divine and unforgettable experience. Rose water will soften and add freshness to your skin while leaving it with an amazing scent of fresh roses. Isn’t that just the perfect beauty treat?!
#4: To soften dry skin
Ladies with dry skin can experience the incredible benefits of rose water by applying it to the problem areas. Rose water soothes and softens dry or flaky skin instantly.
#5: To remove your make-up
Simply apply rose water to a cotton pad and gently remove your make-up with it by gently massaging your face. To create an even more effective make-up remover, dampen the cotton pad with rose water and apply a little bit of coconut oil on top of it, mixing the rose water and coconut oil. This natural skincare product for removing make-up is one of my favourites! It’s perfect for sensitive skin.
#6: To set your make-up
Yes, you can apply rose water (sparingly) over your make-up as a setting product. It will provide a healthy glow and an amazing dewy finish.
#7: To even out your skin tone
Regular use of rose water as a toner can help prevent wrinkles, tighten pores and even out your skin tone.
#8: As an aftershave treatment
Use rose water after you shave to soothe your skin and prevent redness and irritation. It will make your skin feel softer and leave it with a lovely subtle scent!
#9: In aromatherapy
I can’t help but mention that you can use rose water as an ingredient of aromatherapy. Research has shown that aromatherapy can have tremendous positive effects in helping fight stress, contributing to sound sleep and a more positive mindset.
