Enhance Your Skin’s Beauty with Rose Hydrosol

Rose hydrosol is made by distilling luscious rose petals and drawing out the powerful elements of the petals into a steamed distilled floral water.

The hydrosol can be applied directly on the skin and used as a toner to refine and reduce the size of pores. It serves as a humectant by drawing moisture to the skin. By religiously applying rose hydrosol, one soon experiences a transformation; skin looks smoother, more toned, more hydrated & illuminated over time.

Rose hydrosol can also be made into a facial mist and applied at anytime to perk up tired skin. I make a wonderful rose hydrosol skin elixir and mist it just after cleansing my face each morning. My skin craves this mist and radiates all day expressing gratitude when I use it. I’ve used the mist for two months straight and my skin has smaller pores, a healthier glow, and fewer blemishes as a result. I couldn’t be more excited to discuss the benefits of rose hydrosol since I’m a tried and true case study.

Prior to the rose hydrosol skin elixir I made in the herbal kitchen, my skin was overly oily and blemished. I was breaking out around my chin, cheeks and jaw line. My complexion was in trouble. I had read about the benefits of rose hydrosol on the skin and decided to make my facial mist. I’ve been elated ever since. The smell is light and fragrant – you could go beyond skin care and mist liberally on sheets, upholstery, and use as a general room enhancer.

My skin drinks in the moisture and it helps keep dry skin hydrated and oily skin under control. Rose hydrosol serves as a mild antiseptic (making it a wonderful toner) and has a wonderful ability to control and balance sebum production (making it great for both oily and dry skin types).

I’ve also come to rely on rose hydrosol as one of my weapons of choice in fighting fine lines and wrinkles. I’m not kidding…I’m impressed by the reduction in fine lines and the overall reduction of wrinkles. I simply love it. Some rely on rose hydrosol as an anti-inflammatory. I can see why. The blemished skin I once had has healed and my skin has tightened and smoothed as a result.

I think it is very fair to say, when it comes to reducing the fine lines and wrinkles, bouts of acne, mixed complexions, and size of pores….rose hydrosol is the way to go. Use it as a toner, use it as a facial mist…just use it! You won’t regret it.
