The Magical Power Of Roses
The incredible benefits of rose are not unknown in the world of beauty. We have all heard tales of ancient queens using this beautiful flower as a remedy to enhance their beauty, be it in milk baths or as skin packs.
Even today, it holds as much importance besides lending to a flower garden and that's why we find numerous beauty brands offering all sorts of rose-based products.
So what makes the flower in demand? It is said that rose has anti-ageing properties, being a powerful source of antioxidants and vitamins like A, C, D and E that are known to prevent wrinkles.
Rose is an essential ingredient that can be made as part of your skincare regime. It is known for its extraordinary anti-inflammatory qualities as well.
Here are different ways you can use it:
Rose oil is one of the most commonly used products for skincare, which works wonders for quenching dry skin and offering astringent-like properties to help battle acne, redness and inflammation.
Rosehip Seed Oil
Alternatively, some products contain rosehip seed oil which is derived from the small fruits that sit behind the rose flower. This type is laden with anti-ageing and antioxidant vitamins that help to minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Rosewater - a by-product from the creation of rose oil - possesses similar benefits to the skin but with its impressive antibacterial properties is more commonly found in facial mists and toners that help to balance the skin's pH.
The Fragrance of Rose
Of course, the delicate rose is also one of the most classic fragrances in the world. But aside from simply pleasing the nostrils, its smell alone boasts scientifically proven properties.
It has been shown that the fragrance of rose offers soothing and mood-lifting effects as well as reducing blood pressure and levels of the stress hormone cortisol.
