Rose petals are astringent and can be used in skin care products. Luxurious rosewater is a welcome addition to almost any natural beauty and skin care formulation. Rose petals can turn an everyday bath into a luxurious spa treatment for the body and spirit. Roses have several qualities which are ideal for fighting acne. First and foremost, since many types of acne are caused by bacteria within the skin, the antibacterial properties of roses can effectively reduce bacteria while still being gentle to sensitive, damaged skin while the harsh chemicals in common acne treatments can cause sensitive skin to experience unpleasant. Roses are full of antioxidants, antibacterial properties, nutrients, and minerals - rose essential oils and extracts are some of the best kept secrets in skincare. These skincare heavy-hitters are so versatile, they can treat everything from acne-prone skin to mature, dry skin with ease. While a rose by any other name will smell just as sweet, rose ingredients will also help keep your skin revitalized, youthful, and glowing.
