Yes, we are taking about rose water. Not only is it a great addition to your skin in summers but also a winter staple.
Benefits of rose water
It has anti-inflammatory properties that can reduce redness or skin irritation that usually occurs on our skin due to the harsh winter sun.
In addition, many women suffer from acne during winters because the season leave sour skin prone to dryness and opens the pores, both of which can be controlled using rose water. Plus, it removes excess oil stored in clogged pores. All of this combines, that lend your skin a supple and glowing look, which we all crave for during winters.
But if you are anything like me, you also probably store your gulabari jal or rose water in your fridge. Worry not, that is the best way to store it, even if you're using it in winters. So if you're wondering how to quickly use rose water during this harsh cold season, well, here are three best uses for mums-on-the-go
3 ways to use rose water in winters
#1 Use it as a toner
We earlier shared with you that for a glowing skin like new mum Kareena Kapoor Khan, the best way is to follow a three-step process. First wash your face with a deep cleanser or a face wash that does not take away essential oils from your skin and keeps it moisturised. Next, use a toner to tighten the skin and close the pores.
During this step of toning, dap some chilled rose water on a cotton pad and dab it all over your face. Remember that it is all-natural and will help deeply cleanse the open pores of your skin and leave you with an aromatic fragrance.
Repeat this process twice a day and you will notice a visible difference in your skin within two weeks. Follow it up by applying a moisturiser of your choice and then you can do you regular make up routine.
#2 Use it to reduce under-eye darkness and puffiness
Rose water has the quality of reducing redness and inflammation that can also come up around the eye area. So in order to make your eyes appear fresh and to reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness a chilled rose water concoction is your best friend.
Simple add a few drops of chilled rose water on cotton pads and place them on to your eyelids for as long as you like. If you repeat this process everyday for just 10 minutes, you may notice a difference in puffiness and redness around your eyes. This is also a great way to relax your sore eye muscles and has a soothing effect on the skin around the eye.
#3 Use it as a makeup remover
If you like to use makeup then you'd also probably know that it's best to remove it using a makeup remover rather than just washing it off with a face wash. Because while a face wash may appear to wash away all the makeup, it actually sits inside the pores of your skin, and needs to cleansed properly from within.
For that purpose, you do not need to invest in branded makeup removers, a simple gulabari jal will do the job just fine. All you need to do is add a few drops on cotton pads and rub them gently across your face, especially around the nose and cheeks. It will also make your skin feel supple because of its all-natural properties.
