Roses are one of those iconic flowers that we associate with the best things in life: romance, beauty and luscious scents. Did you know, though, that rose also has anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that make it a great skincare ingredient? Here’s everything you need to know about the benefits of rose and the best rose-infused skincare products out there…

What Are The Benefits Of Rose For Your Skin?

Rose has long been revered for its skin-loving properties. Even the Greeks and Romans used rose petals when indulging in relaxing baths. Now though, rose comes in three key forms (rose water, rose oil and rose petals), all of which can have tremendous effects on your skin:

  • An Anti-Inflammatory: Rose can help to calm your skin and reduce redness. It is particularly effective for oily and acne-prone skin.
  • An Anti-Bacterial: Rose can also be used to sweep away dirt and impurities without stripping your skin of its moisture.
  • Full Of Vitamin C And E: Roses are rich in vitamins, which help to stimulate the collagen in your skin and keep your complexion hydrated.
  • Locks In Moisture: Roses are full of sugars and natural oils that help to keep your skin moisturised, smooth and soft.
  • A Detox For Your Mind: Of course, rose also has a lovely scent that enhances your mood, helps you to relax and can even relieve anxiety.

Now that you know why you should be using rose-infused skincare, here are some ways to incorporate it into your routine...

The Best Rose-Infused Skincare Products

1. Sanctuary Spa Nourishing Rose Petal Hydrogel Mask

Enriched with delicate rose petals, this deeply hydrating hydrogel mask instantly soothes your skin and reduces redness. It also infuses your complexion with an array of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that moisturise your skin and help it to recover from free radical damage.

To make the most of your mask, apply it onto cleansed skin for 15 minutes, then gently peel it off and massage any remaining serum into your complexion. It’s the secret to soft, smooth and comforted skin!

2. NUXE Micellar Foam Cleanser

Formulated with micellar foaming agents and Damascena rose petals, this cleanser gently fizzles over the surface of your skin to cleanse away dirt, impurities and makeup. It will also leave your skin feeling soft and soothed.

All you need to do is dampen your skin, massage the cleanser into it using light circular motions until it starts to foam, then rinse it off with lukewarm water. You’ll be left with a fresh and revitalised complexion.

3. PIXI Rose Tonic

Boasting a rose hydrosol base that is naturally soothing and hydrating, this toner helps to calm irritated complexions, minimise redness and balance out your skin’s pH.

After cleansing, soak a cotton or reusable makeup pad with toner, then sweep it over your skin to renew and replenish.

4. Jurlique Moisture Plus Rare Rose Serum

This milky yet lightweight serum is formulated with rosehip oil to breathe new life into dry, sensitive and ageing complexions. It works to strengthen your skin’s natural barrier, locking in moisture and protecting it from free radical damage. My favourite thing about it though? It has a subtle rose scent that lingers on your skin.

After cleansing and toning, dispense a pea-sized amount of serum onto your fingertips, gently rub your hands together to warm the cream, then smooth it over your face, neck and décolletage. You can expect more and more luminous skin with each use!

5. Dr Botanicals Moroccan Rose Natural Facial Moisturiser

Harnessing the essential fatty acids of Moroccan rose oil and Alp rose stem cells, this 100% natural face cream helps to repair and restore your skin. It also works to firm your complexion and reduces the appearance of fine lines.

After cleansing, toning and applying serum, massage this lightweight formula into your face to reveal a radiant, healthier-looking complexion.

6. Elemis Pro-Collagen Rose Facial Oil

Blending three kinds of rose (rose damascene, English rose oleo extract and rosehip seed oil) with three mineral-rich algae and three nourishing oils, this oil helps to lock in moisture, plump your skin and smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Massage 3 or 4 drops over your face and neck every morning and evening before applying your serum and moisturiser. A revived, luminous complexion awaits!

Use these rose-infused skincare products as part of a daily routine and you’ll have smooth, comforted skin in no time.
