It has two ingredients. You heard that right. TWO. Distilled Water and Rosa Damascena (Hydroessential Rose) Flower Oil.
Natural. Floral. Purifying. Refreshing.
Let’s talk about why this natural face mist will change your life. Read on for a breakdown of the good-for-you ingredients and exactly how they work to give you radiant skin.
Why Natural Rosewater Toner Is Good For Your Skin
They say the goddess Cleopatra used rosewater as part of her beauty routine. Obviously we can’t confirm that kind of rumor, but still — wouldn’t we all like to believe that an Egyptian queen used roses on her royal epidermis?
If you’re wondering what rosewater is, exactly, it’s the simplest of concepts. It’s rose petals steeped in purified water — fresh, natural, fragrant, and beneficial.
Besides being the ultimate in romantic, sensory bliss, roses have a wealth of benefits for your skin.
Here are nine of the ways the blooms in this natural facial toner can promote smooth, youthful looking skin:
- Rosewater helps to control excess oil and keep your skin feeling super fresh.
- Rosewater can tone down and alleviate temporary redness.
- Rosewater’s antioxidants — including vitamins C and E — can infuse and strengthen your skin.
- Rosewater helps to enhance smoothness and minimize the appearance of fine lines.
- Rosewater helps to hydrate skin, creating a plumper, more refreshed face.
- Rosewater helps to temporarily tighten pores, minimizing their appearance.
- Rosewater naturally cleans dirt and other impurities.
- Rosewater feels AMAZING! As a natural face mist it’s incredibly refreshing.
- The scent of rosewater can help promote relaxation, and who couldn’t use a little more R&R in their routine?
Knowledge Drop: What Are Antioxidants, and How Are They Good for Your Skin
To understand antioxidants, we need to introduce you to free radicals.
Free radicals are inevitable toxins we’re faced with on planet Earth. They’re created every time a molecule loses an electron. That molecule then becomes unstable and electrically charged, and can then react with other molecules (like DNA) and do damage.
When it comes to your skin, free radicals can contribute to the aging process — as well as increase the risk of various diseases. Boo.
They’re everywhere and can’t be entirely avoided, but they are made worse by unhealthy foods, smoking, lack of sleep, environmental factors, and other stressors.
Antioxidants are essentially their opposite.
When a molecule loses an electron and turns into a free radical, an antioxidant molecule steps up and "gives" the free radical an electron. This helps neutralize them, minimizing the damage and promoting healthy, youthful skin.
To conclude: antioxidants are awesome, both in food, and in skin care products.
Natural Facial Toner: Why You Want Rosewater As Part of Your Skincare Routine
Even when people are committed to a solid skin care routine, there’s a tendency to skip a natural face mist or facial toner. But this is an addition that can make a significant difference in how much your skin shines and how you show up in the world.
Plus, it feels amazing; a natural face mist will wake you up and leave you feeling fresh and hydrated. You’ll also love the sweet, subtle, relaxing floral scent.
But Do I Really Need a Natural Rose Water Toner?
Natural facial toner provides a key step between cleansing and applying product. It refreshes your skin, removes impurities, and sets the stage for the serum and moisturizer you apply afterward.
Basically, it leaves you with a blank canvas, ready for protective, antioxidant rich products to soak in and promote plump, hydrated, and glowing skin.
