Soothing, stress-releasing, anti-inflammatory, and infused with anti-oxidants is this some innovative new serum? Nope. Just some good old budget-friendly rose water.

Known and admired throughout history, this legendary liquid has preserved its appeal throughout years – and might as well help you do the same.

Here are a few tips on some of the best ways to incorporate rose water into your beauty routine.


Tone it up

Rose water can soothe and moisturize your skin better than any toner. Use it exactly the way you would use a store-bought product: pour some liquid onto a cotton pad, apply it to your skin and enjoy the freshness and hydration it leaves behind.

Bye-bye, puffiness

If you struggle with dark circles and puffiness, soak two cotton pads in the fragrant liquid and place them onto your eyelids. Leave them on for ten minutes and rejoice at your refreshed look in the mirror.

Bring the shine on

Whether mixed with shampoo or used on its own for final rinsing, rose water has a delightful effect on your mane. It makes your hair soft and touchable and infuses it with a subtle sensual aroma.

Chill out

Not only does this magical elixir calm your skin, but it also has a very similar impact on your nerves. Add a cup to your bath to enjoy the soothing benefits, which include reduced anxiety and deep relaxation.

Take it all off

If you were searching for a gentle, yet effective makeup remover, look no further. Rose water will clean your face in a gentle, light and natural way. Goodbye chemicals, you won’t be missed.

Craving a refreshing splash of moisture on those cold windy days? This is where rose water comes in handy. Just pour some into a spray bottle and keep it in the fridge or carry it in your purse for those dry days.

Get glowing

Surprisingly, this heavenly water not only removes makeup but also keeps it in place. Lightly spray it over your face and enjoy that healthy dewy look we all strive for. This trick also works wonders for refreshing morning makeup in the afternoon.

Itch no more

A splash of perfume

If you prefer delicate minimalistic scents to potent fragrances, rose water might become your next scent!

It’s subtle, yet irresistible smell is vivid enough to add some intrigue to your image, but merciful even towards the most sensitive noses.

Glow from within

Adding rose water to your drink will not only expand your flavor pallet,  but it will actually boost your immune system too! Mix it with melon juice, tea, milk or anything else your taste buds desire and feel those vitamins and antioxidants fill your body with every sip.
