  • Helps your skin remain hydrated and nourished
  • It helps maintains your skin’s PH levels
  • Calms skin various problems, such as dermatitis, eczema, acne, among others
  • Controls sebum production

Toning is an essential part of a good skincare routine. While most people ignore toning, it’s an integral part of the skincare regimen as it helps remove dirt, oils, and debris that the cleaner might have missed.

Rose water will help cleanse your skin while maintaining your skin’s PH levels. What’s more, it contains astringent properties that help remove oils from the skin pores. Using regularly will help make your skin free of extra oil. It will also help prevent skin issues such as acne, blackheads, whiteheads, etc.

Unlike chemical-based toners, using rose water as a toner will not cause dryness on your skin. Due to its soothing properties, it will leave your skin feeling fresh.

Makeup Remover

Most people, especially those with sensitive skin, have a problem finding a makeup remover right for their skin. Thanks to rose water, you don’t have to use irritating makeup removers anymore.

It can help dissolve makeup and oils on your skin, just like a regular makeup remover (if not better).


Dehydration is another common skin issue that can cause many problems, including rashes, redness, tingling sensation, and premature aging. While drinking water is an excellent way to keep your skin hydrated, it’s sometimes not just enough. Luckily, rose water can help moisturize your skin, giving it a healthy glow. 

Facial Mist

Face mists come with a myriad of uses. Among other things, they can help restore your skin’s PH levels, hydrate the skin, and cleanse tone.

Rose water will come in handy if you are out and about a lot. It can help you remove the dirt and sweat accumulated on your face when you’re outside. What’s more, it will help hydrate your skin and give a refreshing feel due to its heavenly smell.

Side Effects

Unless you’re allergic to roses, rose water is safe to use. Even so, it would help if you did due diligence before buying rose water to ensure that it doesn’t have any added substances. However, as with any other new product, it’s advisable to do a patch test to determine whether the product is suitable for your skin to have it become part of your skincare routine.
