Is Rose Worth The Hype?

Is Rose Worth The Hype?

Rose is one of those ingredients that we generally come to know of at a young age. Our first instance can leave us with a lasting impression. My memory in particular has been associated with elderly women who have lost all olfactory senses and overdid it on the fragrance. However,with a new era has come a new appreciation for mother nature’s beautiful gift of rose. While it’s fragrance can sometimes be polarizing, it’s skin benefits are worthy of the hype.

 

When formulated in skincare and cosmetics, you’ll usually find rosewater and rosehip as the primary ingredients driving the buzz. Damask rose (known also as rosa damacena), are what’s primarily used in your products. Nutrients are extracted from a steaming distillation that is potent and packed with anti-aging benefits. As a natural antimicrobial, rose can also protect against bacteria - hello clear, clean pores.

 

Here’s a few of our favorite reasons to join the rosewater skincare game:

 

It’s antioxidizing

 

Sometimes it’s the things we don’t see that can cause us the most damage. Antioxidizing agents help protect skin from free radical damage caused by pollution. By nature, rose helps to regenerate skin cells and keep your skin barrier tough, making unruly particles bounce off, rather than absorb into the skin.

 

It’s packed with nutrients

 

Full of Vitamins A, C, D, and E, it helps to minimize wrinkles and fine lines, replenishing your skin to be the most radiant version it can be. These also contribute to the reduction in the appearance of age spots and skin discoloration.

 

It helps calm and reduces redness

 

Rosewater is a natural anti-inflammatory that helps to reduce redness and irritated skin, which can also includes reducing irritation from skin conditions such as eczema. With high contents of fatty acids, it also helps to reduce scarring. With all of the calming benefits, rose can also be used as a gentle alternative to retinol when your skin needs some extra TLC.

 

It helps balance PH and oil production

 

Because it helps to naturally moisturize skin, it helps replenish moisture that might have been stripped away from cleansers or other treatments. By balancing moisture, it helps reduce the amount of oil produced.  

 

How to use it:

 

We love rose in all forms of our skincare routine, but we especially love it in the form of toners, oils, and sprays.

Sometimes we need a little moisture pick me up throughout the day. Rose is an ingredient that helps get the job done. This light weight moisturizer can be sprayed directly onto clean skin or on top of makeup in desperate times. We love this for all skin types, but especially for oily and acne prone skin. It’s specially formulated to reduce redness and help heal scarring - castor oil helps give it a boost.
