Let’s take a moment to appreciate the intoxicating, beautiful rose and its serious beauty benefits.

In case you didn’t know, rose has been the secret weapon of the beauty world for ages. Be it bathing in rose-infused milk or including rose water in face packs, women have always used rose to keep their skin soft and smooth. Thanks to the chock-full of antioxidants, anti-inflammatory properties and Vitamin C and E in it, this potent flower is one of the most common beauty ingredients used in skincare products.

Well, winter is coming and so are umpteen skin woes like dryness, dullness, itchiness and redness. But here is the good news. You can employ skincare products infused with rose extracts to keep your skin healthy and moisturised even in harsh winters. Here is how rose can do wonders for your winter skin and why you should be using skincare products infused with this wonder flower.

Takes the dryness away

Dry winter air is no friend to your skin. It steals the natural moisture and leaves your skin parched and dry. Since rose possesses intense hydrating properties, it can help treat dryness and turn your dry and flaky skin smooth as ever.

Brightens complexion

If you notice your skin losing its lustre and looking dull and drab as soon as winter comes around, you are not alone. But you can trust rose extracts to bring your dreary winter skin to life. Rose has Vitamin C, which brightens up your complexion and lends that healthy glow.

Calms irritated skin

If you have sensitive skin, five minutes in the chilly air can give you redness, inflammation, itching skin and what not. Rose extracts have incredible soothing and cooling properties, which calm your skin and reduce skin irritation.

Full of anti-ageing benefits

Fine lines and wrinkles are more prominent when the temperature drops, especially if you already have dry skin. Not only does rose provide hydration, but it also has anti-ageing benefits. Rose has Vitamin A and E and essential fatty acids, which make it a star anti-ageing ingredient in the skincare world.

Keeps you smelling like... well, roses

If you are already fretting about winter body odour thanks to being wrapped up in a sweater all day, rest assured that the heady, sweet fragrance of roses can save you from a lot of embarrassing moments. The soothing scent of roses is long lasting and keeps BO at bay all day.
