- To reduce puffiness
Rose water’s anti-inflammatory and cooling properties not only leaves your skin feeling refreshed but it also tackles puffiness, especially under your eyes. By simply placing two cotton pads saturated with cold rose water over your eyes, you can tackle puffiness within minutes.
- Slows Aging
Your skin ages faster because of exposure to the harmful UV rays of the sun, due to the use of products laden with harsh chemicals, stress, an unhealthy lifestyle, and pollution. All of these factors assist the generation of free radicals that damage your skin. Rose water’s high antioxidant content helps tackle this by neutralizing the free radicals and keeping your skin healthy.
