Roses have been an integral part of beauty since ancient times. They are cultivated as ornamental plants and are used in perfumes and beauty products due to their soothing fragrance and numerous skincare benefits. I use rosewater on a regular basis and have also used rose petals in my face packs a couple of times for a softer and an even toned complexion.
1. Natural Toner : Rose water is a natural toner and improves the texture of the skin with regular use. It removes the dirt and makeup from the facial pores and keeps the skin fresh and glowing.
2. Skin Brightening : Roses have skin brightening properties and regular use reduces the dark spots and blemishes for a brighter complexion.
3. Moisturizing : The rose oil has moisturizing properties and makes the skin soft and smooth. It is also beneficial for those with sensitive skin as it acts as a skin soother.
4. Prevents Dark Circles : Rose water is also helpful in preventing and reducing the puffiness and dark circles around the eyes. Dip cotton swabs in rose water and keep it on the eyes for half an hour everyday.
5. Nourishes the hair and scalp : Rose water is helpful in treating itchy and flaky scalp and nourishes the scalp for healthy and beautiful hair.
