Rose water is a beauty product that I purchase time and time again without a second thought. It has long been a darling of beauty routines—mine included—and it’s no wonder why: it has a laundry-list of benefits from helping to balance skin’s PH to being an anti-aging and anti-inflammatory agent. Its also gentle on sensitive skin, which is tops for me.
Made of hand-picked Rose Damascena (Damask Rose) from Alteya’s plantations in the Valley of the Roses in Bulgaria, this pure rose water smells nothing less than divine. Their organic roses are grown without the use of pesticides, herbicides, or any other harmful additives. According to their website, Alteya’s certified organic rose water is “bottled in the heart of the Valley of Roses in Bulgaria,” and is made “using a unique distillation technique, which embodies century-old traditions and modern technology.” Their steam distillation process “preserves the biodynamic energy of the rose plant.”
Calling this multi-tasking product a beauty routine’s magic potion would be an understatement. I purchase the 200 ml size that comes in a beautiful miron glass bottle. Here are just a few of the ways I use rose water:
Rose water helps maintain skin’s PH balance and is fantastic for all skin types. I use this morning and night, knowing that it’s extremely moisturizing and gentle on my sensitive skin.
Spritzing this in my hair after a shower leaves my hair extra soft and smelling wonderful.
I LOVE adding this product to dry masks like the Ranavat Kiss of Royal Tea mask; it makes for an extra luxurious masking experience.
Makeup setting spray
A little spritz here, a little spritz there, here a spritz, there a spritz, everywhere a spritz, spritz…needless to say, this works as a superb great makeup setting spray.
I love to soak reusable cloth rounds in rose water and place them over my eyes after a long day of staring at the computer at work. It’s a foolproof way of unwinding!
Do you use rose water in your beauty routine? What’s your favorite way to use it?
