Because of how this romantic flower is so widely used in the perfume industry, people might mistakenly think that rose is also used in skin care products for its fragrance. However, rose water is actually very beneficial for the skin and is one of the buzziest natural ingredients in the beauty community. Let’s take a closer look at how powerful it is!
1. Rose water is anti-inflammatory
Rose water is often formulated as the top ingredient in calming and soothing skin care products due to its anti-inflammatory and cooling properties. As a mild and non-irritating ingredient, it is a safe choice even for sensitive skin, or people who are suffering from redness, eczema and rosacea.

2. Rose water is a powerful antioxidant
Free radicals are your skin's biggest enemy – it will disturb your healthy skin cells, disrupt collagen production and damage elastic fibers, resulting in premature signs of ageing such as wrinkles or sagging skin. The bad news is that this enemy appears everywhere, in the sunlight or the air, all ready to harm your skin!
So how can you fight against free radicals? The answer is antioxidants. Rose water is a potent antioxidant that is used in several anti-ageing products, such as Heimish Bulgarian Rose Satin Cream to help protect your skin from harmful free radicals.
3. Rose water can tone your skin
By now, we should all know the importance of pH level for maintaining healthy, happy skin. With the pH level of around 5.5, rose water is a favourite ingredient of many brands when it comes to formulating their toners. Besides, as rose water is slightly acidic, it can gently remove excess oils and dirt, helping in refreshing and balancing your skin while preventing the growth of acne-causing bacteria.

Especially when it's formulated in mist form, rose water will be able to penetrate into your skin and give it an instant hydrating boost.
