Thanks to the innumerable benefits of rose water, it has been an integral part of beauty rituals for ages, and if you haven’t already caught up with it, it’s time you do. Rose water has the ability to instantly hydrate and soothe the skin, and is a powerhouse of natural antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties, making it a product that needs to be on every beauty shelf. This is exactly why a lot of skincare products have rose water as one of their key ingredients
From soothing razor burns and skin inflammations to hydrating dry and parched skin, rose water is an absolute saviour when it comes to healing skin conditions. Below are some mind-blowing uses for rose water that will help hydrate, moisturise and replenish dry skin.
1. With a sheet mask
Sheet masks are all the rage right now, thanks to their quick and fuss-free way of delivering essential nutrients to the skin. While they’re pretty self-sufficient by themselves, here’s a way to increase their efficacy and make them super potent for treating dry skin: post cleansing your face, take a cotton pad that has been soaked in rose water and apply it all over your face and neck area. Next, lay the serum-soaked sheet mask on top of it. Although this sounds strange, trust us, it is extremely useful. This little trick is a great way to ensure that your sheet mask works over time by amplifying it’s hydrating and soothing abilities. Awesome, isn’t it?
2. Under a body lotion
Skin that is perpetually dry and flaky is extremely uncomfortable and itchy. No amount of body lotion seems to help. But you don’t have to give into this discomfort, thanks to rose water. After you shower each day, spritz your entire body with rose water from a spray bottle while your skin is still slightly damp. Immediately seal it in with your favourite body lotion without wasting any time. Bye bye, flaky skin!
3. In a face mask
There are few things as relaxing as a DIY face mask on a Sunday afternoon. Add to this some binge-worthy Netflix show and a glass of wine; you have a spa of your own right there! If you are making a sheet mask, there are few better face mask ingredients than rose water, which is why so many masks are made of the stuff. If the face mask requires you to add water (to make a paste), we recommend you substitute it with rose water. This is an amazing remedy for anyone with dry and flaky skin as it gives it an extra dose of hydration and nourishment.
