The wonderful healing properties of rosewater
With so many different toners and face products out there everyone forgets the true, tried and proven effective pure beauty treatments that have been around for centuries. If you were to pick a modern toner off the shelf you would most likely see a list of chemicals on the back. These toners and other skincare products can be quite expensive and can contain harsh chemicals. Many of these chemicals are easily absorbed into the skin and have cancer causing properties. So why are we still using these when we have the answer to beautiful skin right in front of us?
Many of the products marketed to us as all aimed at solving particular skin issues but once you use them they will more than likely create more problems, but hey that is how the big companies make their money after all. I have been using pure Rosewater on my skin for a long time now and I am amazed at the wonders it does for my skin. Rosewater is made of just that roses and water, it is a by-product from distilling rose petals and water to make rose oil.
Rosewater is known for its amazing healing properties especially when it comes to skin care. It helps maintain your skins natural ph balance. It helps prevent and ease eczema. Rosewater helps prevent aging by tightening pores and reducing wrinkles. Its so versatile and can be used on all kinds of skin from aging to oily or acne prone. It helps lesson the appearance of acne scars. It is also moisturizing and very refreshing.
On oily or acne prone skin you could use it after you wash your face. It helps cleanse any excess oils, make up or dirt you may have missed or that may be residing deep within the skins pores. Its soothes any inflamed or irritated areas and it also has anti-septic properties. Rosewater really does it all! This amazing all natural beauty product that can replace your cleanser, toner and moisturizer! If you have dry skin you could cleanse with Rosewater before you apply your moisturizer which sould help give your skin that extra moisture boost. It also smells so so good!
I had oily combination skin and I cant say enough great things about Rosewater as it has really helped keep my skin balanced and helps keep my pores clear which helps prevent any breakouts. Every morning and evening or whenever I feel like I want to freshen up my skin I get clean cotton pads and moisten them with Rosewater and rub onto my skin. Its so gentle and soothing you can rub it around the eye area without any problems its actually quiet a nice cooling effect for tired eyes. Just make sure the pads arn’t dripping wet!
Many products out there today claim to contain Rosewater or Rose oil but they really contain artificial rose or its combined with a bunch of other bad stuff your skin doesn’t need. You can buy pure Rosewater or oil in an Evergreen or health store. You can also find it in some pharmacies. Pure Rosewater usually isn’t expensive although some pharmacies sometimes charge more than they should for a small bottle. I got my large bottle in a Mediterranean food store so shop around. You can even make it yourself!
You don’t need a million ingredients to get beautiful skin, its actually quite the opposite. There is a reason our ancestors used these products and sometimes we just need to go back to basics. Rosewater is said to make you beautiful and I can see why. Even Cleopatra had baths in Rosewater so lets follow her example and include this inexpensive natural beauty miracle into our daily regime.
