It has anti-inflammatory properties and can be used even on sensitive skin. Rose water helps in soothing irritations, sunburn, and acne.

Skin Toner: Rose Water is an effective substitute for chemical based products and harsh alcohol-based toners. It gently tones the skin and tightens the pores. It moisturizes the skin and gives a toned look to the face.

Apply rose water to the skin using cotton and allow it to settle in the pores. It will soothe the skin and skin will feel refreshed.

Makeup Remover: Rose water acts as an all-natural makeup remover that cleans the skin without causing excessive drying. It is better than many products available in the market as it is gentler and helps in maintaining the pH level of the skin.
