Roses aren’t just for the vase on your table tops. The water from those precious flowers can soothe even the reddest of faces without irritating sensitive skin. Famous for their anti-inflammatory properties, rose water and rose-infused products can be used alongside regular water to wash, cleanse or tone your face. Other benefits include controlling oil production, hydrating and moisturising your skin, reducing acne, eczema and dermatitis, strengthening cells, and preventing signs of ageing such as wrinkles and fine lines. Even if you don’t suffer from any of these things, adding a rose oil or rose water to your everyday skincare routine can give you a glow and refresh tired skin. Here are a few of our favourite products.
Pixi Rose Tonic
After cleansing and before moisturising, swab a cotton pad wet with the rose tonic over your face. Follow by placing 2-3 drops of the rose oil on your forehead and cheeks and rubbing them in. For best results, use a face roller to help your skin really absorb the oil and its benefits. Do this morning and night for a soothing effect.
