Rosewater Benefits and How to Use It Effectively
Roses have been used for ages to calm and soothe the mind, body, and soul. Whether you have oily, dry, or combination skin, rose water can be a staple for your winter skincare regimen.
One of the best benefits of this toner is how gentle it is. You can use it multiple times each day, and it will never dry out your skin or cause irritation. In that way, it serves as a wonderful hydrating agent for dry skin.
Rosewater helps maintain the skin's pH balance and also controls excess oil. It is a great cleanser and aids in removing oil and dirt accumulated in clogged pores. It is also rich in antioxidants which helps to strengthen skin cells and regenerate skin tissues, diminish wrinkles, and reduce fine lines.
As we push through this winter, many people use rosewater alone or combined with oils to cure dry, flaky skin. For those with more sensitive skin, rosewater is a known anti-inflammatory agent. It smooths and softens the skin, and can also heal facial cuts, bumps, and scars.
