Roses have become increasingly popular as an ingredient in skincare, and it isn’t difficult to see why. Legend has it that Cleopatra used to fill her chambers with rose petals before visits from Marc Antony, ensuring that he would think of her every time he smelled one. Cleopatra even soaked her ships’ sails in rose water before traveling to ensure the scent followed her wherever she went.
As a symbol of romance, roses are a staple in most American houses on Valentine’s Day.
In addition to their delicious and memorable scent, the benefits of roses for skin are immense. Expressively, roses are real in skincare!
What are the Beauty Benefits of Rose Petals For Skincare
Cleanse your skin
Roses have an exotic scent and can refresh your skin naturally. They contain antioxidants that fight off free radicals, skin irritants, excess sebum, and germs. Not only are rose petals full of antioxidants, vitamins, essential fatty acids, and minerals – they also have anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.
Rose petals are rich in vitamin C and other anti-oxidants. Vitamin C boosts collagen production and strengthens skin cells and tissue. Hence, this enables blemishes and acne scars to heal faster.
Acts as an Oil Control Center
Since most facial toners contain alcohol or witch hazel which tend to severely dry out skin. Roses will leave your skin soft smooth and supple as they have a natural astringent effect on the skin. When applied to the skin in paste form, rose petals will tighten skin and shrink large pores, keeping skin fresh and toned.
Gently Exfoliates Skin
Dried rose buds/petals have a gentle texture which helps deep cleanse skin; removing dirt, grime, excess dead cells, excess sebum, and germs, stuck within skin pores.
The natural oils found in roses help lock moisture into the skin, keeping skin feeling smooth. Rose is especially beneficial for those with sensitive skin because the sugars in its petals create a soothing feeling.
Relieves Skin Inflammation
While we may think of roses for their iconic deep red color, rose oils can actually help reduce swollen spots or redness on your skin. Its calming properties can also help sooth rosacea and eczema.
A Natural Toner
Notably as a natural astringent, rose helps tighten pores and restore suppleness for a glowing complexion. Unlike conventional alcohol-based toners, rose leaves skin feeling smooth, not dried out.
Rose contains high amounts of vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant. This important vitamin can help protect skin cells from damage, such as from staying out in the sun too long. Some evidence even suggests that rose water can help prevent sunburn.
Natural Sun/Sunburn Soother
Surprisingly, the SPF of rose petals is not clearly known, however, roses are rich in vitamin C, which is a powerful anti-oxidant for sun protection. Vitamin C will bolster the skin’s UV defense and steer away free radicals from skin cells.
