5 Reasons to Add Rosewater to Your Acne-Fighting Routine
April 22, 20222 min read
Roses are red, violets are blue, and it turns out rosewater is good for you too.
Are you done rolling your eyes yet? All poetry aside, rosewater can be an excellent addition to your skincare routine, especially if you’re dealing with some acne. Here’s everything you need to know about it:
Rosewater Makes Your Skin Look Tight and Taught
We all crave the firm, taught-looking skin that we had when we were too young to appreciate it, and rosewater is a great natural way to help you get it back. That’s because rosewater is an astringent. However, unlike many synthetic astringents, rosewater won’t dry out your skin. It’s a win-win.
Rosewater Can Help to Balance Your Skin’s pH
Your skin has a very delicate pH balance, and it can get thrown out of whack easily by daily activities like washing your face or simply going outside. Why should you care? When your skin’s pH is off, its defenses are down. This means it has a harder time fighting off acne-causing bacteria and your skin is more likely to become inflamed.
Luckily, rosewater is here to help. This delicately-scented wonder ingredient works with your skin to help it return to its natural pH balance.
Rosewater Contains Antioxidants
Antioxidants are a critical component of a good skincare routine. They protect your skin from the stuff in the environment--like pollution and UV exposure--that contribute to inflammation, premature aging, and more. Plus, they can help fight signs of aging. Some people say roses represent eternal beauty, and now your face can too.
Fights Acne-Causing Bacteria
If your face is looking a little spottier than you’d prefer, rosewater wants to help. It’s been scientifically proven to combat Propionibacterium acnes , the unwelcome bacterial visitor that manifests as acne.
Rose Water is Anti-Inflammatory
Most of the unsavory things that happen to our bodies can be traced back to inflammation, and that includes the redness, swelling and blemishes that you sometimes find on your face. Happily, rosewater is also a potent anti-inflammatory, so you can get redness under control while smelling like a fresh bouquet.
Skincare That Contains Rosewater
When you’re on the search for rosewater-infused skincare, it’s important to choose synthetics-free, botanical-based products. Otherwise, the toxic effects of the synthetics may counteract any positive effects from the rosewater.
At Wild Ice, we use rosewater in multiple of our all-natural, cold-kept and toxin free products. Its one of the star ingredients in Gaea’s Gala , our alcohol-free toner that’s designed to fight signs of aging with every use.
We also use rosewater in our customer-favorite DBT Baba Yaga , a ceramide-rich Siberian cold cream. Grab both today and see how rosewater can help you glow.

I love this product! Makes my skin feel so moisturized and it’s so light not heavy and oily. I have medical issues which cause me have to take steroids daily so my skin is super dry some days and this helps a lot!
I absolutely love this product! My face feels moisturized but not oily and it gives me a glow. I’ve gotten so many compliments on how good my skin looks in the last couple of weeks since I’ve been using this product. I may be becoming a bit obsessed with the wild ice line!
I call this my magic spray. It freshens the face, like no other so called toner, provides all of the balance, and preps the face for the other products. In the past, I never really enjoyed toner, but, with Wild Ice, this is my favorite step. If I miss this step my face feels and sees the difference. Try it you will love it.

I absolutely love this product. I live in Texas with medium levels of humidity right now, this product is still so perfect. My skin loves the feeling and stays bright and clear when I use it! Highly recommend this serum to anyone thinking of buying it.
I love this product! It is light and not heavy feeling when applied, and it is the most moisturizing oil I have ever used! It leaves a beautiful sheen where I have applied it and my skin has never felt so soft! I have an autoimmune disease that affects my skin and this product has been a life changer for me, thank you, Mila, for creating this wonderful product!!
