We all want to take good care of our skin, both for it to look it’s best and to stay looking great for as long as possible.
But is your skin really as healthy as you think it is? 😕
Here are 5 important things that your skin needs to stay healthy:
1. Vitamin A
Did you know your skin needs vitamins? But I don’t just mean eating your 🥕 vegetables. What I mean is that you need to use skin care that contains vitamin A so your skin can produce new skin cells, preventing dullness and giving you that ‘glow’.
2. Vitamin C
Vitamin C 🍊 reduces the appearance of age spots, fine lines and evens out your skin tone so your face looks more smooth in both colour and texture. This is great if you have any discolouration that you want to get rid of or just want to reverse signs of ageing.
3. Vitamin E
Vitamin E helps neutralise free radicals that can damage your skin cells and hydrates your face, so your skin will naturally hold more moisture for longer, keeping it looking plump and reducing dryness in both the short and long term.
4. Moisture 💧
We’ve all heard of a moisturiser but that’s not where it ends. You need to layer moisture on your skin to keep it super hydrated, even if your skin is oily! The more hydrated it is, the more balanced your skin type will be, and the younger and less dull it will look. So use a cleansing oil, spray your face with a hydrating mist and finish off with a moisturiser that works for you.
5. A balanced pH
Your skin cells can only function when they are at the correct pH and that means using a facial mist to help balance it out, especially when too many soaps make your skin far too alkaline. So use something that is a similar pH to your skin’s natural level (5.5) to balance it back out.
It may feel like more hassle than it’s worth, but taking care of your skin means it can protect you, heal itself and stay strong like it should.
To do this, you essentially need three things: moisture, vitamins and making sure your skin’s pH stays balanced.
Cleansing is to give your face a clear canvas and getting rid of any build up that isn’t good for your skin.
Exfoliating helps remove any dead cells so the healthy ones can absorb the water and nutrients better.
And moisturising 💧 packs in a ton of moisture to keep your skin supple and elastic.
But where do those vitamins come in?
Your diet is important and requires the majority of your skin’s needs, but pollution and harsh weather means we need some extra attention.
And for that, what I love to use is rose water. 🌹💧
It’s rich in vitamins A, C & E, as well as B3 and D.
It’s super hydrating for your face so you can layer moisture on your skin before using your moisturiser.
Plus, it has the same pH as your skin!
So it keeps your skin balanced and healthy, without doing much more than spraying your face.
Then you can use a few drops of rose oil 🌹 in your moisturiser, so you can keep layering those all important vitamins for the completely clear, silky skin you dream of.
But it’s known for being as expensive as gold, so you can see why a lot of people skip out on this amazing oil.
So I use cosmetics that contain real rose oil, rose water and other plant extracts 🌱 so I can feel confident with how amazing my skin feels and looks, whilst knowing I’m giving it the nutrients it needs.
What People Say About Our Rose Cosmetics
Frequently Asked Questions
How much rose water is in a bottle?
Each bottle has 100ml, which will last you up to a month if you use a generous amount twice a day!
How do I use rose water?
Just spray your face after cleansing and before moisturising (or using any serums or oils) when doing your skin care routine. To get the most out of your rose water, use it every morning and night.
Is it vegan?
Yep, it is! It has no animal products, by-products or anything else. 😃
Is it cruelty-free?
Yep! No animals were tested on at all 🐰
Is it alcohol-free?
We use phenoxyethanol as a preservative and this is an alcohol, but it’s in very small traces and won’t damage your skin like an alcohol heavy toner can. This is the safest alternative to using parabens, which are common to see on other rose water ingredient lists.
Is it paraben free?
Yes! Parabens are a popular cosmetic preservative that is linked to all sorts of health risks. We avoided using them in our rose water by choosing a safer alternative.
Does this work for any skin type?
Rose water works great for all skin types, thanks to how easily it can balance out any oiliness, dryness or sensitivity. 😃
