Why look 30 years old while you are only 25? Rose water has anti-aging properties and it does a great job at reducing the formation of wrinkles and fine lines that make you look older. After buying the water or making it at home, spray it directly on your skin or use a cotton ball to apply on your face.

2. Soothing skin irritation

Rose water has anti-inflammatory properties. This helps in relieving irritation that may be caused by conditions such as eczema and rosacea.

3. Acne treatment

Rosewater helps in removing dirt and excess oils on the skin – these two cause acne. The anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties in rose water also help in getting rid of acne.

4. Use rose water to hydrate your skin

Drinking water keeps your whole body hydrated. Rosewater on the other hand ensures that your skin does not get dehydrated at any single moment. It settles in your pores providing your skin with mild hydration.

5. For toning your skin

Toning balances the skin’s pH, makes your skin less prone to oiliness, and, gives your skin a more vibrant and smooth appearance. Before you moisturize, toning your skin with rose water is recommended.

6. Reduce eyes puffiness

Remember we said rose water has anti-inflammatory purposes? Well, this makes it a great solution for puffy eyes. A spray of gentle rose water around the eyes will leave the area rejuvenated and hydrated.

7. Natural makeup remover

Some of the makeup removers we use contain alcohol which only dries the skin. Rosewater is an alternative natural makeup remover and it’s also suitable for people with sensitive skin.
