Ingredient Focus: Benefits of the Rose

Here at Beauty Expert, we believe that happiness and confidence are the prettiest things you can wear. That’s why all this month we’ve been celebrating everything our #BELOVED campaign has been about, making you feel beautiful from the inside out! With February being the month of love, it seemed perfectly fitting that we highlighted the wonderful benefits of the Rose. Rose is a favourite flower for most ladies, but rose is also a great ingredient for beauty related purposes too! Read on to find out why rose is so wonderful…

The Benefits:

  • Unlike alcohol-based toners which can leave your skin feeling tight and uncomfortable, rose water is natural astringent but softening too. This makes it an effective ingredient for firming and tightening the skin – leaving you with a luminous glow!
  • Rose is renowned for its skin-soothing properties and is very effective for calming redness, rosacea and eczema.
  • The harmonizing potential of the rose makes it a unique skincare ingredient. This is why the rose is used in products for both dry as well as oily skin.
  • The scent of the rose petal is classified among the heart notes. It has a full, round and lively fragrance – it can truly warm our hearts. It brings joy and happiness and a feeling of well-being.
  • The rose essential oil is very popular in the aromatherapy, where it is used for many different purposes.
  • Rose hips are the best source of Vitamin C and they contain 50% more Vitamin C than oranges! Essentially, this means that rose can help fight the good fight against ageing free radicals. This wonderful ingredient also reduces the appearance of fine lines, whilst increasing the skin’s the skin’s collagen levels and providing the most radiant glow!
  • Rose retains moisture so it’s ultra-soothing and conditioning for the skin. Particularly if you suffer with dry or dehydrated skin!
