So I promised you I will do a post about rosewater and coconut oil because they are way up there on my favorite beauty product list.
Rosewater is my main though ❤

By the time I’m done with this post you will agree with me that you might need it more than a boyfriend (okay I’ve stopped) 🙏😂
Rosewater is one of the most amazing ingredients you can include in your everyday beauty regime. I have personally been using it since August last year and the results impressed me for sure.
The following are 12 benefits and recipes that have worked for me, especially since I struggled with acne for a long time.
- Goodbye Acne
Rosewater contains anti inflammatory properties that are medically proven to treat acne, dermatitis and even eczema.
1tbs rosewater plus 2tbs lemon juice
Apply to skin and let it stay for one minute everyday twice .
Rosewater also acts as a makeup remover by cleaning your face’s pores and nourishing your skin.
Mix 2-3 drops of coconut oil or your essential oil plus rosewater on a cotton pad and work it through your face.
1 tbs rosewater plus afew drops of glycerine.
After washing your face apply this mixture to your face and pay attention to the T zone.
I do this routine every night.
Toning your face is an essential. Rosewater contains antioxidant properties that strengthen skin cells and regenerate tissues.
It’s astringent nature tightens the pores and gently tones the skin. Add oils of your choice but avoid too much active ingredients.
5.Reduces excess oils and maintains skin’s PH
Rosewater cleans pores and ensures that your PH is balanced. Use it in the middle of the day when your face is too shiny.
6.Heals wounds and piercings
It’s anti bacterial property heals cuts, wounds, piercings and sensitive skin .

I have been using it on my nose piercing instead of spirit and it’s been working out great.
7.Can be used as prima
Rosewater works great in ensuring that your makeup is set on some good foundation using rosewater as primer. You Could also add some glycerine.

8.Rosewater nourishes and moisturises hair
Rosewater should be a staple for everyone when it comes to hair. Hair needs to always stay moisturized in order for it to grow and maintain its natural oils.
Rosewater also treats mild scalp inflammation and dandruff.

10.Rosewater calms sunburns and helps to repair weak or ageing skin
