Rose water has been used throughout the world for many centuries and is considered the world’s oldest beauty secret. It has natural antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties as well as hydrating and soothing powers. Rose water balances and restores oily skin. It revitalizes tired and dry skin. It also has natural aromatherapy and ancient homeopathic history dating back to Cleopatra and the ancient Egyptians. And, many of today’s beauty stylists, top models and celebrities tout its many health benefits and consider a staple of their daily beauty skin care regimen. It’s the essential skin and beauty powerhouse.
In its purest form, rose water is created through steam distilling rose petals. It’s a beautiful, rose-coloured and wonderfully scented liquid that is a by-product of the distillation process for making rose oil.
Dr. Tabasum Mir, a skincare physician in cosmetic dermatology and cosmetic laser surgery, shares 4 main reasons why rose water is such an important product for people with sensitive skin or rosacea: “It’s anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, has antioxidants and it hydrates.”
“It’s also good for those who are acne prone because people don’t realize that acne is caused by bacteria on the surface of your skin,” says Mir.
It’s also widely believed that spritzing rose water directly on your face provides an “aromatherapy boost” and can be good for improving your mood and energizing your senses. “It’s a great pick-me-up throughout the day and can be used to set your makeup,” she adds.
Although irritation to the skin caused by rose water is extremely rare, be sure to check the ingredients of your rose water and try to buy 100% pure and all natural rose water if possible.
