How Rose Water Can Help You Smile Again

Rose water is not meant just for cakes or fancy drinks. It can be your new ally while fighting stress, anxiety, or just a lot of pressure piled up at home or work.

Turning to rose water as a self-care remedy will help you be more mindful and realize that there is always a solution. If you stay calm and creative, you will see the way out or how to reach your next target without losing endless hours in tormenting thoughts or fears.

Here is how you can include rose water in your daily routine for an uplifting effect that touches every part of your life:

1. Leave-in conditioner

Are you used to styling your hair with sprays that leave an annoying fragrance behind? If you need to keep your locks hydrated but don’t want to deal with the terrible smell anymore, there’s a simple solution.

Use rose water to spray your hair during the day. Start in the morning and repeat every 3-4 hours. 2-3 sprays should do it, and you will love the fragrance around you. And once you feel the special smell, headaches and anxiety will be just a memory.

2. Makeup setter

If you carry powder or blotting sheets everywhere just to make sure you don’t get shiny at the wrong moment, now is the time to rev up your purse contents. Take out all the brushes, powder, and sheets and replace them with a little spray with rose water. That’s all you need to keep your makeup looking great all day.

If your skin gets dry, if you have an oily T-zone, if acne keeps pestering you, or if you just want a dewy glow, the only thing you need is rose water.

Spray lightly, and you will look great. Another advantage is that it acts against wrinkles too. Migraines and lack of creativity will stay away from you from the first spray.

3. Pillow fragrance

If you have trouble falling asleep because you overthink everything that’s going on, spray your pillow with rose water. The fragrance will make you smile and add the light scent you need to fall asleep faster. No nightmares will trouble you until morning, and when you wake up, you will feel completely refreshed.

Give rose water a go. It’s a staple for beauty and emotional wellness. You won’t be sorry you tried.
