We love roses but we hate when their time is up and we need to say goodbye. Make use of the roses you got for valentine’s day and turn them into rosewater, but first let’s see why rosewater is your best option.
The world is raving about rosewater, all the famous make up gurus are using it in their beauty routine. The only ones who are not using it as much are Egyptians which is such a shame considering that rosewater was first used in ancient Egypt. The ultimate beauty queen, Cleopatra, was the first one who discovered the benefits of it and incorporated it in her daily skincare routine. Rosewater is our very own magic potion and should be in every woman’s cabinet. It has a lot of benefits and uses that I will be telling you more about later in that article. From personal experience, I can promise you that you will be losing the foundation and concealer and flaunt your natural bare, beautiful face!
Rosewater is great for keeping your skin feeling refreshed, moisturized and hydrated. Rosewater is also great for your hair is it refreshes the skin cells, moisturizes and over time get rid of dandruff.
Rosewater is a great natural treatment for wrinkles and fine lines. It is very beneficial and it works wonders
If you have tired, inflamed eyes, soak a cotton pad in chilled rosewater and apply. It helps reduce puffiness under the eyes and get rid of redness.
The aroma of roses is a great mood enhancer. It gets rid of anxiety and stress which makes you feel happier and relaxed. Put some in your regular bath or just run a soaked cotton pad across your face.
I have been using rosewater for a year and a half now and I have to tell you that my dark circles decreased drastically. Soak a cotton pad with rosewater and place it over your eyes for as long as you can. Normally, I keep it on for 2 minutes before bed. The key here is to not dry the water and to wait for your skin to absorb it.
Rosewater is a great facial cleanser. It removes all the dirt and accumulated products from the pores and thus preventing the formation of black and white heads.
Rosewater is a good alternative to expensive makeup removers. Not only does it cleanse and remove make up. It also leaves your skin feeling fresh and smelling amazing.
For rosewater to make its magic, it needs to be 100% pure. You can purchase it from trustable shops like Nefertari or you can make your own!
To make your own you need to have rose petals and distilled water, you boil the water with the roses until the color disappears completely. You drain the water, store it in a bottle and leave it to cool down. You can store it in the fridge if you want it to be extremely cold or you can leave it in room temperature. I promise you will fall in love with it either way.
You can put it in a spritz bottle and spray it during the day, or you can keep it in a normal bottle.
