Good for all skin types
Do you suffer from dry skin? Do you have oily skin? Sensitive? Isn’t this a fantastic mix of everything? Regardless, rosewater is your best friend. My skin is excessively oily, and the mere notion of coconut oil causes me to break out in nasty, excruciatingly painful cysts. Rosewater effectively reduces pimples by controlling oil production and bacteria growth. Furthermore, it is an excellent moisturizing agent for dry skin. As we approach winter, when the chilly air can wreak havoc on the skin, many individuals turn to rosewater alone or in combination with oils to permanently treat dry, flaky skin.
Your Hair Will Thank You If You Use Rosewater
Rosewater is beneficial to virtually all hair types. I use it on my locs every day as a quick moisturizer and to style my hair (i.e. braid-outs, flexi-rod sets, etc.). Rosewater is known for restoring damaged porosity and balancing the pH of the hair. It can be used as a daily hair moisturizer in conjunction with whatever oil or cream you already use, and its antibacterial characteristics can help prevent dandruff. Many people believe that rosewater promotes hair growth because it improves blood circulation in the scalp. Keep a bottle of rosewater on hand this winter, whether you’re protecting your hair or wearing it out, to avoid dry, brittle ends… Did I mention how fantastic it smells?
Puffy Eyes are Destroyed by Rosewater
Long hours of studying or nagging your toddler to sleep are no match for rosewater’s anti-inflammatory properties. I’ve woken up with puffy eyes on numerous occasions, and rosewater has always come to my rescue. Simply spritz a cotton ball with the solution and gently dab it about your eyes, or close your eyes and press the cotton ball on your eye for 5 to 10 minutes. If your makeup remover leaves behind leftovers of yesterday’s mascara, the rosewater will remove that as well. Teehee.
You can buy rosewater in a bottle from your local health food store, order it online, or create it yourself. Then sit back and watch the magic unfold. I’ve travelled a long distance to attend.
