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.
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.
The Cyro-C serum is by far the best vitamin C serum I have ever used. I love skincare so much and you can tell this product is made with care. The smell is amazing and I get complimented almost daily about how my face looks glowing since I started using. Mila was so kind and knowledgeable. I will definitely be rebuying once I run out!
I have oily/combination skin, so I pump/mix both and then apply, otherwise it’s too oily and doesn’t absorb quickly. This works so well! It makes your skin smell great even hours after application. I only wish this trick for oily skin was on the instructions of bottle. I didn’t realize until I saw it on one of their insta stories. Great product otherwise!
I love the 4-step facial products. The routine is easy and simple and the results are amazing. This is one of the best product lines I have used on my face, and I can really see a difference in my skin. I first purchased two of the products at Market Days in Tallahassee. When I finished the products, I went back to what I was using previously. It was not long until I decided that Wild Ice is the perfect product line for me and my dry skin. I am hooked.
I recently found these products and amazing creator at our local farmers market and all I can say is WOW! I was instantly sold from the moment I applied the cold-kept cream to my skin. I'll absolutely be going back for more from her skincare line and watching allll of her informative videos on their social media page
This is absolute gold in a bottle that smells like fresh oranges. My skin is sensitive and I do have rosacea and it drinks Cryo-C up! My complexion has greatly improved and am so happy I made the splurge. This, along with the toner, are new repeat buys for my skin routine. I look forward to my skin routine AM & PM just because it feels and smells amazing!
This has improved my skin and is very refreshing. I have sensitive skin and rosacea and this has not caused any breakouts. I use this with Cryo-C and absolutely love it! Will definitely be a repeat buy to my skin routine.
I recently purchased the complete skin care package and I absolutely love it! I’m having a hard time deciding which product is my favorite. The cleanser makes my skin so soft and helps with my overall skin appearance, The serum brightens my skin, one of the best I’ve tried and the moisturizer! It has improved every single issue I’ve been concerned with. Love love love the entire collection! Thank you so much!
I just started with this to see how my skin took it before I invested in any more products. I have used it consistently for several weeks and WOW. My skin literally feels more healthy and looks it, too! And my husband is always telling me I smell good right after I put it on. :)
I found this product at the Rosemary Beach farmers market. It is amazing! Have been using it for 2 weeks and my skin feels wonderful. I have rosacea and use others products for it, but this adds to the regimen and soathes your face. Love that it is cold (if you put it in fridge) which is so calming in the summer!
