If I were to ask you to name a few skincare products that you use, the ones that will generally come to mind are cleansers, toners, and moisturizers.
A power product that is often overlooked and underrated is one that has so many benefits, and it’s so versatile that it works wonders on any skin type. What is this product that I speak of? Rosewater.
Rosewater is a great gentle and natural ingredient with many skin-enhancing benefits. It’s the most fabulous of multi-taskers, as it helps to hydrate, refresh, soothe, and cleanse your skin. You can even use it over your makeup to set it. The best part? It’s super affordable! You can go to your local supermarket and grab a bottle of this magic potion, or head over to a beauty store such as Sephora, but be prepared to pay more. Though it won’t come in a spray bottle, you can simply purchase one at the dollar store to facilitate misting it on your skin.
After cleansing your face, spritz a bit of the rosewater onto your face and let your skin absorb it for a few minutes. Aside from leaving your skin cool, hydrated and refreshed, it cleans your pores and tones the skin, rebalances the pH level of your skin, removes and controls excess oil, helps prevent acne from appearing, reduces inflammation and redness, and aids in healing scars, cuts, and wounds.
With oily and acne-prone skin, I experience a lot of skin troubles such as inflamed acne, scarring, and oil build-up, so to see firsthand that rose water will help target and rectify some of these issues sold me on this purchase. My complexion is much clearer, blemish-free, and definitely glowing! Whether you have dry, sensitive or oily skin, rosewater can easily be integrated into your skincare regime.
