Used for centuries (at least 14!) and across the world, rose water has been a weapon in women’s beauty arsenal. These beauties knew what they were doing.

Rose water packs a lot of benefits. Here are the highlights. Rose water is:

  • Anti-inflammatory -> reducing redness, irritation & swelling

  • Anti-bacterial -> stopping acne-causing bacteria in their tracks & healing scar-tissue faster.

  • Anti-oxidant -> slowing down the skin’s aging process & keeping the skin soft and dewy

  • Astringent AND Hydrating -> helping stop the production of excess oil without drying out skin, therefore making it an ally for all skin types

  • pH balancing -> helping overall skin health and the absorption of other products

  • Gentle -> making it safe for daily use

All in all, rose water is an absolute ally if you want a soft & dewy complexion and healthy skin.

Now for the good stuff –

Knowledge is power.

Let’s slow down and get nerdy.

Anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-oxidant, pH balancing all sound like fantastic properties for an organic, natural product to have (and they are!), but do you really know what they have to do with your beauty?

In this article, we unpack each of rose water’s properties to illustrate how their benefits are achieved.
Knowledge is power. By truly understanding the properties of the ingredients you use daily, you can appreciate them more fully, use them more intelligently and achieve the results you want.

Let’s see exactly how these properties lead to the benefits rose waters provides (and we all want!) – soft, dewy, youthful looking skin that seems to glow from the inside out.

1 – Anti-inflammatory

Inflammation is your body’s way of fighting anything that isn’t quite right.
It’s a one-size-fits-all emergency response from the immune system. It allows for the transportation of its healing fighter cells and combat bacteria, viruses and heal wounds. As it does this, it creates heat, swelling and usually pain. For bacteria, viruses and wound healing, this is a perfect response. As a way to handle chronic stress and poor diet? Not great.

On the skin, regardless of what’s causing the inflammation to occur, the outcome is always the same: redness, itchiness and swelling. Dermatitis (e.g. eczema) and rosacea are inflammatory skin conditions.

Rose water’s anti-inflammatory properties help soothe and calm the inflammatory response. The result? Reductions in redness, irritation and swelling

2 – Anti-bacterial

By keeping the skin clear of certain harmful bacteria (particularly acne-related ones), rose water can help prevent acne and support the healing of scars, cuts and wounds.

3 – Anti-oxidant

Oxidation occurs when an atom or molecule loses an electron in a chemical reaction. (I told you we’d nerd out). This creates “free radicals”: molecules who are looking for an extra electron to bond with. In the body, when there is no “extra” electron, free radicals will steal the electrons from our cells, wreaking havoc.

In the skin, collagen can become a victim of free radicals. Losing electrons, the collagen loses its integrity and wrinkles, dark spots, fine lines and loose skin start to appear.

As an anti-oxidant, rose water carries “extra electrons”, allowing the free radicals to bind with them, without harmful effects to the skin.

Takeaways: Avoid free radical sources, eat anti-oxidant rich foods and use anti-oxidant products like rose water on your skin to prevent wrinkles, fine lines and the loosening of skin and leave your skin plump, youthful and protected instead.  

4 – Balances pH

The skin thrives when its pH level is slightly on the acidic side. When it’s knocked off balance by things like pollution, soaps, makeup and alcohol, the skin can get irritated, dry, red and develop acne.

Rose water, with a pH of 5.5, helps restore the skin’s natural acidity level. This boosts the skin’s anti-oxidant and anti-microbial properties (staving off aging), and allows other products to penetrate better.

5 – Astringent

The skin thrives when its pH level is slightly on the acidic side. When it’s knocked off balance by things like pollution, soaps, makeup and alcohol, the skin can get irritated, dry, red and develop acne.

Rose water, with a pH of 5.5, helps restore the skin’s natural acidity level. This boosts the skin’s anti-oxidant and anti-microbial properties (staving off aging), and allows other products to penetrate better.

6 – Hydrating and Moisturizing

Not only does rose water add moisture to the skin, but thanks to all the benefits we’ve seen so far, rose water improves the skin’s barrier and reduces transdermal water loss. This is especially helpful in the dead of winter when the heater is sucking all the moisture out of the air (and your skin).

In simpler terms, it adds moisture and it helps retain moisture.

That said, it’s recommended to use your rose water in conjunction with a moisturizer. It allows for both products to penetrate deeper into the skin.

All of these properties together make it an incredible ally for all skin types.
