Attention all makeup geeks and DIYers: A few days ago we talked all about rosewater and gave you instructions on how to make your own. Now, using the rosewater you made (or by purchasing your own), we’re going to tell you how to make some of the most popular beauty products flying off the shelves today.
Give your skin what it deserves and revamp your entire skincare routine using rosewater. Your skin type doesn’t matter because rosewater works great for everyone! We’ve even included a few product recommendations if you’d rather skip the DIY and BIY (buy it yourself).
Let’s get to the good stuff:
Put some rosewater on a cotton pad and add a few drops of coconut oil. Rub the cotton pad gently over your eyelids, eyelashes, and face to remove any remaining makeup residue. Not only will it remove those last bits of stubborn makeup, but it will also nourish and hydrate your skin.
Add a few drops of glycerine to 1 tbsp rosewater and apply it to your face using a cotton pad. The glycerine will moisturize and the rosewater’s astringent properties help tighten pores and tone the skin.
Makeup Setting Spray
After you’ve finished your morning beauty routine and you’re ready to take on the world, a setting spray is your ticket to flawless makeup that won’t budge throughout the day. But rather than spending $10 - $50 on a mainstream setting spray (Did you know: the main ingredients in most setting sprays are water, alcohol, and silicone?), simply fill an empty spray bottle with rosewater and give your face a spritz when you need it.
Take it with you on-the-go: Keep it in your purse for a midday refresher and keep one in your gym bag to use post-workout. The rosewater keeps your complexion looking fresh, hydrated, and radiant!
We recommend: LUSH Vanishing Cream Moisturizer for its ability to tone, balance, and tighten pores in a light, moisturizing formula.
We’re obsessed with natural products that provide so much versatility, and rosewater is no exception. But would Cleopatra approve? We think so.
