I have previously done a post on rose water infused beauty products however, since rose water is such a simple yet amazing product, I thought i should share my top 6 reasons to why I always carry rose water in my handbag.

1. Refreshing and re-hydrating face mist.
Perfect for when you need a little pick-me-up mid-day at work or during a long-haul flight. Just sprits some rose water on your face and you'll instantly feel re-freshed. Apart from the mini bottle in my handbag, I also keep one on my desk at work. 

2. An addition to your facial cleansing routine
Rosewater has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties which makes it a perfect face toner. Spray your face with rose water after cleansing and before moisturizing, both morning and evening. 

Tip: If you are prone to have oily skin, like me, use rosewater in the morning and Vetiver water in the evening. 
3. Take a rose-bath
Poor a few drops of rose water in your bath. Not only does it smell beautiful, but why not let your body receive some of those anti-inflammatory and antibacterial benefits as well!

4. Make-up setting spray
After putting on foundation, spray rose water twice to help set the base of your make-up for a long hold.

5. Re-hydrate your hair.
Spray the roots of your hair with rose water to hydrate your scalp and to calm static and frizzy hair.

6. Boost your facial cream.
Mix your facial cream with a few drops of rose water to give your skin extra moist and nourishment. Rose water improves skin complexion and fills up fine wrinkles thanks to its astringent properties.
