Benefits and Uses
Rose water can usually be used without any side effects and contains numerous powerful antioxidants.
SKIN: Rose water has anti-inflammatory properties, which means it can be put on the skin to soothe the irritation caused by conditions, such as eczema and rasacea. It can also act as an inhibitor against elastase and collagenase, which are both harmful to the skin. This, in turn, can help soothe the skin and reduce redness, as well as act as an anti-aging product by reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
