Hydration is one of the most important factors to achieving good skin. When skin is well-hydrated, it feels a lot smoother, plumper and even softens the look of fine lines and wrinkles. While we have covered a variety of different ingredients like jojoba oil and ceramides that are superb at making sure your skin is well moisturised, one ingredient we cannot leave out is rose.
Besides effectively quenching dry and dehydrated complexions, roses (whether as a form of water or essential oil) contain anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties to help combat acne and redness while strengthening skin cells and boosts the cell regeneration process. With its calming properties, this flower even helps to soothe eczema and clear up acne scars, making it suitable for sensitive skin.
Additionally, it is enriched with high amounts of vitamin C, which is already well known to brighten skin and lighten dark spots. It also protects skin against sun damage and boosts overall radiance, while treating clogged, enlarged pores.
And then, there’s the pleasing fragrance of rose. While it does not directly improve your skin condition, the natural scent helps to calm, soothe and relax, making the daily beauty ritual so much more enjoyable.
These are the latest rose-infused skincare products to add to your beauty arsenal.
