Add Roses to Your Summer Beauty Routine

It’s getting warmer (and drier) by the day, so its time to start adding in some summer-loving elements to your skincare routine. While there are endless over-the-counter products that promise to deliver the benefits ypu’re looking for, there is nothing quite as noticeably powerful (or as simple!) as adding a little bit of Rose to your daily routine for added moisture, brightness, nutrients, and some seriously skin-soothing benefits.

The anti-inflammatory benefits are real:

Roses are naturally soothing and can help reduce swelling, redness, eczema, rosacea, and even sunburn! So next time you feel yourself reaching for that bottle of aloe, you can step it up a notch by trying this quick and luxurious recipe!:

-1 part aloe vera gel
-1 part fresh rose petals
*blend the mixture in a food processor until frothy
*strain mixture into jar, and refrigerate.

Get a clear, radiant complexion:

Rose oil contains anti-bacterial properties that help prevent and treat problem skin before it starts. Bacteria growth increases over the warmer months, so adding rose oil this time of year can be incredibly beneficial to help your skin fight off free-radicals that could lead to nasty breakouts.

Powerhouse delivery of antioxidants and nutrients :

Roses contain more than 60 times as much Vitamin C as most citrus. Adding rose to your routine will not only give your skin a serious dose of nutrients, but will also help strengthen your skin cells and regenerate skin tissues.

Keep your skin moisturized all day long:

Rose oil has an incredibly moisturizing and brightening effect, even for the most sensitive skin! Adding rose to your nightly moisturizing routine will have your skin waking up fresh, radiant, and youthful.

Environmental Benefits:

When it comes to aromatherapy, you want to look for more than just an oil that smells lovely, but one whose vibrational frequency is high enough to really notice the cognitive benefits. Rose oil has a frequency of about 320 Mhz, making it one of the highest frequency essential oils on the market. So next time you feel like you could use a boost, try diffusing rose oil and allow it to raise your vibration, literally!
