So What Are the Beauty Benefits of Rose Water?
Rose water has been used for centuries for many different things. Your grandmother can probably tell you more about this amazing concoction than I can. With the rise of industry products for beauty, this one has taken a seat on the back burner. Until now, that is! Since more and more people are becoming aware of the harmful ingredients in mass industry produced beauty care items, they are turning toward all-natural things such as rose water for their daily beauty routines.
This is probably the most widely known purpose of rose water. It has many different properties that work magic on your skin. Firstly, it’s an incredible toner! What’s a toner, you ask? Well, a toner is something that protects your skin against bacteria and helps shrink the appearance of pores. Rose water also helps maintain the skin’s natural pH. This helps to minimize the production of extra oils and therefore, less acne breakouts. It is also known to reduce redness, improve circulation, and give your skin a fresh glow. To use this on your face, simply put your rose water in a spray bottle and spritz your face after washing.
Because rose water increases circulation, it is also known to promote hair growth. It is also extremely moisturizing and can help prevent against split ends and damage. Since it is also antibacterial, when applied to roots it can help alleviate itchy and dandruff-ridden scalps. For use on your hair, you can either apply by spray bottle throughout your hair as a conditioner, or pour on your roots and massage.
Since rose water is such a great natural anti-inflammatory, it’s wonderful at relieving red, tired eyes. It’s also great when applied around the eyes for preventing wrinkles and aiding the removal of dark circles. To use as eye drops, simply take a dropper and apply two drops in each eye – do not use too frequently (just like any other eye drops). For applying around your eyes, dip two fingers in the rose water and dab them around your eyes. DO NOT RUB.
