For thousands of years, people have been using rose water for its beauty and skincare benefits, and it has a cult-following amongst celebrities and beauty editors alike. Rose water is one of our main ingredients, which we infuse into our best-selling ‘Rosa Damascena’ sheet mask. We have developed this sheet mask using 250 different flowers to give you the highest-quality of rose water. We have rounded up everything you need to know about this legendary natural ingredient and why you will want to introduce it into your skincare routine.
What Is Rose Water?
Our rose water is produced through stem-distillation, which produces a small amount of essential rose oil and water, which is why it is thought of as being ‘liquid gold’. Rose water is a natural ingredient that dates back to ancient Egypt. With rose water, you can steal one of Cleopatra’s (yes, that, Cleopatra) most loved ingredients that she’s believed to have used for everything from baths to her hair. Rose water is one natural skincare product that has last the test of time and is approved by dermatologists for its wide variety of benefits.
Natural Antioxidant and Anti-Inflammatory
Our skin suffers as a result of not only stress but also environmental factors such as UV rays and pollution that we can’t remove from our lives. Rose water can tackle the damage that is caused by these daily realities and can protect your skin cells from further damage. This ingredient can strengthen your skin cells and will regenerate your skin tissue to help repair and rejuvenate your skin. Rose water is a natural anti-inflammatory ingredient which will soothe your skin and is perfect for treating hyperpigmentation in your skin as it can reduce redness. If you suffer from eczema or rosacea, then studies have shown that rose water is the perfect addition to your skincare routine as it eases the irritation caused by these skin conditions.
Hydrates Your Skiny
Rose water is a primary ingredient in the majority of sheet masks due to its strong hydrating properties. Sheet masks that use rose water will add moisture to your skin as it contains hydrosol which will improve the protective barriers around your skin and will prevent your skin from losing its hydration. Rose water is the perfect addition to your skincare routine during winter months or if you live in warm climates where your skin has to deal with air conditioning that can dry up your skin. Rose water is the ultimate pick-me-up for your skin all year round and is suitable for all skin types.
Helps Maintain Your Skin’s pH Balance
Rose water is perfect for regulating the pH levels of your skin as it has a low pH level of 5.5 which can help give a natural balance to your skin. Getting your skin’s pH balance under control is necessary if you want to achieve healthy and glowing skin. Rose water will balance your skin and keep its slight acidic levels that are needed to protect your skin from the bacteria that you interact with daily. Dermatologists recommend using skincare products that have a neutral pH balance as it can prevent your skin from suffering from any irritation, rose water has a pH of roughly 4.5 putting it right in the middle of the recommended pH levels.
Perfect For Treating Acne
Rose water has antimicrobial and antibacterial properties which means it is an ideal natural treatment to tackle acne or spots. One of the best ways to get rose water into your skin is through a sheet mask as it will soak through the material and will also help your other rose water products set into your skin better. Rose water is full of nutrients such as Vitamin C and phenolics, and its antiseptic properties mean that it can naturally treat acne as well as the scars it can lead behind.
Deeply Cleanses Your Skin
Acne and spots result from the build-up of bacteria and dead skin cells. Rose water is a natural treatment that acts as the perfect cleanser for your skin and can remove the oils and dirt that get clogged in your pores. Your skin is also naturally tightened when you use rose water, which makes it appear healthy and refreshed. As a result, rose water is a popular ingredient in makeup removers, facial cleansers and toners.
Ideal for Anti-Ageing
Due to all the benefits that we have mentioned above, rose water is perfect for your skincare routine if you’re focused on tackling the early signs of ageing and if you want to keep your skin looking younger for longer. Rose water is included in most anti-ageing products as it can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as it soothes and cleanses your skin.
