Our skin has a slightly acidic Ph, and if it is altered by too aggressive cosmetic products, this can lead to problems of dryness, acne, wrinkles or various rednesses. Toners help restore the skin’s proper acidity level after thorough cleansing. And yes, the toner: that product you hear a lot about but often miss in our beauty routine!
Rose Water Toner
One of the most delicate toners in absolute terms, and the one most used by our grandmothers, is the one based on rose water.
It is nothing but a solution obtained from the infusion of rose petals. It has very good softening, soothing and calming properties. The fewer ingredients you have in your product list, the purer the rose water will be. Many people prefer to make it themselves, to avoid certain added ingredients. Many companies tend to dilute the product to get a larger amount.
All the properties for the skin
Rose water is perfect if you use it with other anti-aging products, because it can give a new youthfulness to the facial skin. Moreover, it is excellent for dry and sensitive skin: rose water quenches the skin, calms and soothes it with extreme delicacy.
It is also used as an antibacterial and healing agent. In addition, it is excellent for people who suffer from acne, and it can heal small scars on the skin. It also has anti-inflammatory and astringent properties. It is particularly effective, in fact, if applied after cleansing, to calm the effect of “pulling skin”.
And then, have you ever heard of rose water wraps on the edge of the eyes? They’re great for deflating and reducing dark circles after a long day at work. Finally, don’t forget the delicate and relaxing scent of rose water!
