Any product with rose water will ultimately help those suffering from any kinds of acne. Not only is rose water antibacterial, but it isn’t harsh on the skin like other agents such as tea tree oil. You only need a small amount of product to treat a spot, and remove gently with lukewarm water to diminish its appearance.


Rose water is perfect for those suffering from rosacea since it’s clinically proven to subside any side effects. Apply onto a cotton pad, and dab into your problem areas before applying moisturiser or makeup for a perfect base.

Skin burn

Use rose water in the same way to treat sunburn and relieve dry, cracked skin. This is even applicable for those suffering from extremely sensitive skin, since it won’t further irritate the area.
