What's in your mask: Rose
Happy Valentine's Day everyone! You are probably all waiting for that rose. Not only that it’s a beautiful flower, Rose is actually good for your skin as well. In fact, the ancient Greeks and Romans bathed with rose petals to improve their skin and mood. You can still bath with rose petals, of course. But nowadays, isn’t it easier to just use Rose infused face masks?

The type of Roses that are most often used in the beauty industry are rosa damascena (damask rose) and rosa centifola (cabbage rose). Batches of Rose petals go through a distillation process so their oil and water can be obtained. Rose oil is produced through a steam distillation process, while Rose water is obtained through a rather more intricate method. The finished product can then be used as ingredients for beauty and skincare products.
Why should we use Rose infused face masks?
Both Rose oil and Rose water have similar benefits that are perfect for acne prone skin. Their emollient properties help hydrate the skin, while their antibacterial properties fight acne. Rose is known as an excellent solution for inflammation. If you’re experiencing acne, blemish, and other types of skin imperfections, use Rose infused face masks to soothe and tone the skin. Rose is rich of vitamin C as well. Especially during summer, Rose face masks can help recover your skin from sunburn.
