Rose water 🌹💧 has a range of benefits for your hair, skin and health, but how exactly do you use it?
We all want to get the most out of what we use and this natural cosmetic is as easy as it gets, so you really can’t go wrong!
All you have to do is spray it onto wherever you want to use it.
You can spray it on your face, your body, your hair or even onto your bed to help yourself sleep. 😴
So let me take you through the uses and how exactly you can make the most out of rose water for yourself:
How To Use Rose Water For Hair
Rose water can be used in a variety of ways for your hair including damage, dryness, an oily scalp and dandruff, but where do you start?
Well, this natural water works as a gentle astringent that has moisturising benefits, making it great for a lot of problems with your hair.
If yours is more oily, especially on the scalp, a few sprays onto your roots and massaging the rose water in on a regular basis can really help add volume, reduce the oiliness and prevent your hair from looking ‘weighed down’.
All you have to do is part your hair into pieces and spray between them on your scalp before heading to bed.
After a week, you’ll notice a big difference! 😃
If your hair is damaged, it’ll become stronger and will break less as you brush it, whilst absorbing so much more moisture than it used to because it’s no longer brittle.
This is especially great for growing your hair longer because it’s so much easier to do when it’s healthy.
Another way you can use rose water for hair care is to add it to your shampoo or conditioner, so it slightly dilutes the product.
By doing this, you’ll be letting it work on your hair without having to do more than your usual hair washing, which is always a bonus!
But if hair isn’t an issue for you, you’re probably wanting to know the other uses.
So, if you care about your skin, here’s how to use rose water to stop those pesky breakouts.
How To Use Rose Water For Acne
Acne takes a huge knock on anyone’s self-esteem and it isn’t fair to deal with on a regular basis.
So what can you do?
Continue living with it?
What’s the point in getting used to dealing with blemished skin when you can use rose water 🌹💧 to help ease the redness, kill off the bacteria and prevent breakouts in the future?
Exactly, there isn’t one.
So, cleanse your face with some coconut oil (double cleanse if you’ve been wearing makeup or SPF) and spray your face with undiluted rose water, then finish off with a mineral-oil-free moisturiser.
You can also add it to some bentonite clay and make yourself a face mask for you to use once a week.
That’ll pull out all the blackheads you have whilst clearing out any build up on your skin (plus the rose water boosts the effects of the facial).
Then, before it’s fully dry and is tacky, use a wet flannel to gently wipe off the mask.
Do that a few times until it’s all washed off, then spray with rose water and finish with your moisturiser.
By doing those steps, your acne will clear up in no time!
But you may notice that your skin looks discoloured from having those pimples for so long.
So what do you do?
Another one of the benefits of rose water is that it works for skin lightening, which includes reducing discolouration.
And it’s just as easy to do! 😃
How To Use Rose Water For Skin Lightening
Skin lightening doesn’t just mean making your skin more pale – it also means getting rid of discolouration and scarring for a smoother complexion.
So if you’ve dealt with acne, you may have scarring left over that makes your skin tone uneven.
Or your skin is more sensitive and it doesn’t react well to a lot of cosmetics, so it discolours easy – then rose water can help make your skin smooth again.
The easiest thing you can do is add rose water to your skin care routine for gradual results or even try out rose water with gram flour to make a skin lightening face mask.
Just leave the mixture on until it dries and then wash it off well with warm water, then spray your face with rose water and use your favourite moisturiser to finish it off.
But those aren’t the only ways you can use rose water.
How To Use Rose Water For Eyes
Nobody likes having tired looking, puffy eyes and what sounds more refreshing than spraying cool rose water onto them?
We’ve already mentioned that the vitamins from rose petals help soothe inflammation, whilst hydrating the skin.
So you can see why it would be so popular for eye care. 👀
When spraying your face in your skin care routine, it will end up spraying your eyes anyway.
But, if you want to use the rose water in a more direct way, then you can soak two cotton balls and put them in the fridge.
After 30 minutes, place them over your eyes and let the cotton warm up from your body temperature.
Once they’re warm, throw them away and repeat with another two cotton balls.
You can do that as many times as you like or just do it the once, but I’d recommend using them during a clay facial to both pamper your skin and reduce eye bags.
You can do this at any time of the day, but it may help to spray your closed eyes with rose water in the morning when you still haven’t quite woken up and your eyes are more sensitive to the cooling effect.
You can even use it throughout the day over your eye makeup (this works great if you’ve been looking at a computer screen for a while) to give yourself a quick boost.
Rose water actually works great as a setting mist, so you know your eyeshadow and eyeliner will still be in place when spraying your closed eyes.
How To Use Rose Water For Makeup
Set your makeup and keep it looking dewy all day by spraying your face with a few mists of rose water. 🌹💧
The vitamins and the moisture that it has will soften the finish of your makeup, making it look smoother, free of dry patches and preventing it from becoming too oily or from rubbing off quickly.
Pretty good, right?
You’re less likely to have a breakout whilst wearing it and your skin will look great when you wash your makeup off.
So those are all the main rose water uses that you can make the most out of!
Whether it’s hair, acne, makeup or eyes, it’s so versatile that everyone can find a great reason to try it out.
