Benefits of Rose Skincare
By: Guest: Elise Miller ~
Did you know that roses are more than simply pretty flowers? Roses are used as a powerful ingredient in skincare due to the fact that they are bursting with vitamins and antioxidants that work lovely wonders on the skin. Rose acts as a natural hydrator, soothes redness and can even help balance your mood. The nourishment and refreshment that roses can offer will have your skin feeling refreshed, nourished and healthy.
Roses acts as a toner and can prep the skin for moisture while plumping and hydrating facial skin tissue. Whether you have oily or dry skin, roses work wonders on all types of skin and can help support the absorption of nutrients and minimize trans-epidermal water loss in the skin. Rose is an astringent, which means it can help cleanse the skin, tighten pores and dry out excess oil. It also has the ability to ease redness and calm the skin from flare-ups. Rose is anti-inflammatory and antibacterial flower with the power to minimize wrinkles and reduce scars if you so choose. Because it is high in Vitamin C and E, your skin will receive a boost of moisture and collagen. Rose will make your skin both smoother and softer. Last but most definitely not least, it has the ability to uplift the mood, stimulate the mind, promote positivity, ease anxiety, and inspire romance. Rose is truly an amazing flower.
Adding Rose into Your Routine
Implementing rose into your skincare routine will help bring your skin to the next level by nourishing and hydrating the face. Both morning and night, after cleansing, mist a generous amount of Rose + Calendula Hydrating Facial Mist onto the face or spritz the mist onto a cotton round and apply to face. This mist is formulated with pure and natural ingredients to give your skin the moisture it deserves: farm-grown rose petals hydrosol, organic aloe vera and organic calendula flowers. After using the mist, apply Calendula + DMAE Facial Créme to the face and lightly blot a small amount of créme under the eyes, using the ring fingers. This nourishing créme is formulated with farm-grown calendula, rose petals, hyaluronic acid, rooibos, and DMAE that will help plump the skin and build collagen. For an extra boost of rose in your routine, after cleansing, use the Calming Herbal Facial Steam that harnesses the power of certified organic calendula, certified organic lavender, certified organic chamomile & certified organic rose petals. To use the steam, pour 2 cups of boiling water into large bowl allowing to cool for a few minutes. Add two or three tablespoons of facial steam and gently stir. Place your head 8-10 inches above bowl and drape a towel over your head and the bowl. Close your eyes to relax and breathe deeply over the steam for 5-10 minutes. This is wonderful self-care step to add in once a week. After the steam, follow with the créme from above. Watch your skin transform using the power of roses!
