Calm Winter Skin with Rose Water

rose water spritz Calm Winter Skin with Rose Water

Winter hates our skin. Cold, harsh winds outside plus dry furnace heat inside; all these elements add up to irritated, red and flaky skin. There are many tips and tricks for dealing with winter skin, but have you considered rose water?

Rose water is an ancient skincare secret. Distilled from steeping rose petals in water, its history dates to medieval times when a Persian chemist refined the process. It has traditionally been used medicinally (anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial), nutritionally and in religious ceremonies, in addition to its cosmetic applications as a moisturizer.

In India women mist it directly onto the face as a rejuvenating moisturizer during the winter. Often called a wonder of nature, rose water will balance the skin and is safe for already irritated skin.

Though you can make rose water yourself, one liter requires about 16-20 cups of crushed petals. So the options are thus, avoid distilling your own rose petals around Valentine’s or Mother’s Day, or buy a bottle at your local health food store.

5 Ways You Can Use Pure Rose Water:

1. Reduce puffiness around the eyes. Winter weather exacerbates dryness in this tender area, but the anti-inflammatory properties of rose water will sooth the skin. Cool it in the fridge beforehand to improve its effectiveness.

2. Mist your face. Take a tip from Indian women and freshen your skin throughout the day by spritzing on some rose water.

3. Your hair will thank you. Rose water can help calm the frizzies. Mix with equal parts glycerin and massage into scalp for 15 minutes before rinsing.

4. Tone your skin. Throw out your alcohol based toners; rose water is a natural alternative. It will tighten pores and give skin a healthy glow.

5. A natural makeup remover, rose water can lift away cosmetics and oil from your face.

Smashing Fragrances for Spring

This year’s new fragrances for spring are taking their inspiration from a traditional motif: the flower garden.

Botany and perfumery have always gone hand-in-hand and same with the ideas of botany and spring. Flowers return a palette of varied hues to the world and infuse the air with complex and subtle scents; it’s no wonder the biggest names in perfume are taking their cues from such a muse.

8 Floral Inspired Fragrances For 2015:

1. Issey Miyake’s City Blossom

Designed by French urban artist Mademoiselle Maurice (a.k.a. Mary Saudin), who’s street art is ultra-colorful, and perfumer Alberto Morillas, Issey Miyake’s newest fragrance is a poetic embodiment of nature’s foray into the heart of the urban environment. The scent is inspired by the domesticated varieties of flowers common to city florist shops.

This newest scent from Salvatore Ferragamo is designed by perfumers Alberto Morillas and Amandine Marie. Emozione’s heart is a rich floral bouquet of peony, heliotrope and Bulgarian rose, with notes of white peach, bergamot and iris, among others.

3. Anna Sui’s La Nuit de Bohème

Among the newest merchandise are a few stand-out items, including a number of brand new shimmering shades of the brand’s iconic nail polish that first propelled Hard Candy into stardom. A brand new luminizer, high-shine lip gloss crayons and their Poppin Pigments multipurpose glitters are also joining the party.

Among the collection are amusing features like unique and increasingly popular pop art lacquers. Intensely fun, totally non-traditional, completely affordable and 3-free: sounds like a win-win-win-win.

Or, maybe we can take care great of ourselves, thanks to a new product on the market:

A product that says we can change our skin in 28 days.

Don’t you just love the word ‘radiance’ when it comes to your skin? Because Sephora provides us with Radical.
