Skin Benefits and Uses of Rose Water for Face

by Nidhi Gupta 06 Jul 2023 0 Comments

Rose water has been one of the favorite beauty ingredients since ancient times. It is believed that refined rose water was invented by a Persian scientist in the 10th century. Since then, it is widely used in cosmetic and edible items.

Rose water on face benefits

rose water benefits

Rose water is used in many cosmetic and beauty products because of the enormous amount of benefits it offers. Have a look at the rose water benefits for face-

  • Maintains pH balance

pH of pure rose water is between 4.0-4.5. A regular use of natural rose water on the face helps maintain the natural PH balance of the skin.

  • Anti-inflammatory and anti microbial

Rose water has strong anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties which help to cure various skin ailments, acne, minor cuts, and wounds. It may even help you to suppress skin irritation due to eczema and rosacea.

  • Antioxidant

Rose oil holds powerful antioxidants which protects the skin from premature aging, environmental effects, and sun damage. Regular use of gulab jal may also reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

  • Astringent-cum-Toner

Rose water toner has astringent properties which mean that it helps in tightening skin pores. Unlike alcohol-based toners, it doesn’t wipe away natural skin oils and maintains its hydration.

How to use Rose Water for Skin

1.Rose Water for Skin Whitening

Rose water holds the potential to brighten your skin tone. It is rich in Vitamin C and phenolics which contributes in lightening the skin complexion and tightening the open pores.

How do you use rosewater on your face?

 Can we apply rosewater on face at night?

Can rose water remove dark spots?

Can I use rose water as sunscreen?

You can use rose water to soothe sunburn or alleviate sun damage. But you definitely need sunscreen to protect your skin from harmful UV rays.

Why does skin burn after applying rose water?

If you feel a burning, stinging, or redness on your skin after using rose water, it simply means that you are allergic to it.

Which is better- Rose Water or Rose Hydrosol?

'Is rose water same as rose hydrosol?' This is a common dilemma for a layman who reads the term 'Rose Hydrosol' for the first time. Rose hydrosol is the purest, better, improved, and more effective version of rose water. Rose water is cheaper than rose hydrosol as it is nothing more than distilled water infused with the artificial fragrance of rose (or maximally a few drops of rose essential oil). On the contrary, Rose hydrosol is a steam distilled water obtained during the process of making rose essential oil. Unlike Rose water, rose hydrosol contains the goodness of rose essential oil in its every droplet.

Bottom line

Rose hydrosol is the easiest and safest way for a complete skincare regime. It is suitable for all skin types and for all ages. Even a teenager can use it fearlessly as a toner, rose serum or face pack.
