Rose water is a liquid created by distilling rose petals with steam. It is often featured in perfume formulas because of its sweet scent. Apart from its fragrant nature, there is a long tradition of using rose water for medicinal, culinary, and skincare purposes since as far back as the 7th century. Nowadays, with a rise in skincare advancement and innovation, rose-infused skincare products come in many different forms, such as rose oil, dried flowers, rose hips (the seedpods of the roses), hydrosol and rose extract. Rose water benefits our skin in more ways than we can imagine. In fact, it does quite a lot of heavy-lifting when it comes to boosting our skin's health. For one, the antioxidants in rose water helps protect our skin cells against external damages with antiseptic healing properties. Rose water is also known for its anti-inflammatory properties, which is effective in soothing irritated skin caused by environmental stressors, eczema and (in some cases) rosacea.
