Rose water was first discovered in Persia and is basically made through distillation of pure fresh rose petals. I bought mine from the supermarket but you can make your own at home. On the internet you can find all sorts of recipes for rose water and rose oil. Maybe sometime I will try it myself, but for the moment I choose the easiest method which was buying it. On the label says is made in Jordan with distilled water and rose essence.
I started using it for a couple of days and it seems that it really suits my dehydrated skin. It leaves it so smooth and fresh and the smell is charming. After only a few uses I feel that my skin is soft and thin. I don’t know if it is only in my imagination but I read about this water and has a lot of properties and benefits for the skin and not only. Until I will make my final rule on this water, this will happen after I will use it for a while, I will tell you a little bit about its special powers.
Benefit of using rose water:
Hydrates, moisturize, and revitalize the skin.
Prevents aging by reducing wrinkles.
Reduces skin pores.
It’s very effective for irritation, redness and inflammation of eye.
It helps fight acne, dermatitis and eczema.
It can also help with blackheads.
Applying it on a cotton pad and gently place it on your eyes will reduce eye puffiness and dark circles.
It is also good for the hair. It nourishes the hair and induces hair growth by increasing the blood flow. Also it treats mild scalp inflammations and dandruff that is caused by fungal infections.
Rose water can be used on any skin type without causing much irritation. You can use it as a make-up remover or as a facial toner and that’s not all. You can use it during summer to freshen up your face by spraying some of it on your skin. It will hydrate and nourish it. You can even add a couple of drops in your cream to boost it a little; will help the skin become soft and supple.
If you didn’t use it until now you should definitely start introducing it in your daily beauty routine to have a glowing and healthy skin.
