5 Reasons to Add Rosewater to Your Acne-Fighting Routine

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.
Mila (pronounced 'mee-luh') is mother of three, wife, and founder of Wild Ice, an all-natural cold-preserved skincare line dedicated to bringing the best of care to women everywhere.
I was introduced to this magical liquid about 2 years ago. Every time I use it on a regular basis, people comment on how smooth and radiant my skin looks. Once you start using this product, you’ll be hooked
The Body Bar is the best you can use for your skin. It doesn’t feel like you are washing or cleansing your skin, it feels like the softest gentle foam, leaving your skin hydrated, fresh, and pampered. This is worth every penny!!!!!
The toner is my favorite product of all WILD ICE products. I keep it in a mini fridge at work and in my kitchen fridge at home. There is nothing more refreshing on a hot day than cool toner spray on my face!
This is a high quality product! Love it and plan to use it more frequently! Need to watch more of Mila’s awesome videos to make sure I am doing everything correctly! Thanks for making amazing products for beautiful skin!
I love this toner! It sinks in beautifully and doesn't sit on my skin. It's light, refreshing, and lasts a long time! The best part is that is oh balancing to the skin, which is crucial for healthy skin. Highly recommend!
I have been using wild ice for about two weeks. I watched Mila's tutorials on her Instagram which was a huge help!. IM getting the hang of doing the tape also. My face hasn't felt this good in years and I love the everything about these products and the scent is heavenly! I plan on doing after photos once I have used it for a bit longer.
