With spring just around the corner, it is time for all of us to revitalize, rejuvenate and refresh our skin from the brutal winter.

When people hear roses, their first instinct is to think of perfume and fragrances. However when distilled, these beautiful petals also contains important medicinal and healing properties. So what exactly is rose water and why is it so good for the skin? Believed to have been discovered first by the Egyptians, they used this ancient remedy to heal wounds, skin conditions and aromatherapy. Commonly distracted from Damascus roses, the healing properties of rose water includes soothing irritated skin, reducing redness, fighting wrinkles, unclogging and tightening pores and balancing the oils of your skin. Rose water has so many amazing benefits that no wonder we are seeing a resurgence in the popularity of these pretty elixirs. Discover more about the benefits of rose water HERE
In short, rose water is great for all skin types but I think it is really suited for oily-acne prone skin like mine. Even though I have combination skin, I found that it not only tightened my pores which help with limiting my oil secretions on the t-zone but it also doesn’t dry out my cheeks. I guess due to the excess of vitamins and antioxidants found in rose petals, rose water restrict pore size really well which creates a nice matte finish for me to put my foundation on. You can also us mix the small spritz of rose water and your fave metallic eyeshadow together to create a chrome effect! A toner and foundation primer in one, these travel-friendly mists comes in four heavenly scents each with their own unique notes of floral, citrus and wood. My favourite being Lust, where each is meant to evoke a beautiful memory of tranquility and nature. Packaged in gorgeous frosted glass bottles that serves to protect the oils from direct sunlight and heat, these organic mists will last up to 12 months. For best results, you can also store them in a cooler that doesn’t freeze so you get a nice cool mist every day to awaken your skin and senses. Another suggestion I have is to spray the mist on a cotton pad and swipe it all over your face and neck gently avoiding the eyes. For me, I didn’t have any problems with just spraying the mist on my face directly but I can see the citrus and orange note being a potential irritant for some people and for their eyes. This way you can still reap all the wonders from the rose water while keeping your eyes free of irritants and discomfort.
