Why You Need To Add These Rose-Infused Skincare Products To Your Collection

Yes it smells nice but this multi-functional ingredient also treats multiple skin concerns all at once. Consider us intrigued.

Hydration is one of the most important factors to achieving good skin. When skin is well-hydrated, it feels a lot smoother, plumper and even softens the look of fine lines and wrinkles. While we have covered a variety of different ingredients like jojoba oil and ceramides that are superb at making sure your skin is well moisturised, one ingredient we cannot leave out is rose.

Besides effectively quenching dry and dehydrated complexions, roses (whether as a form of water or essential oil) contain anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties to help combat acne and redness while strengthening skin cells and boosts the cell regeneration process. With its calming properties, this flower even helps to soothe eczema and clear up acne scars, making it suitable for sensitive skin.

Additionally, it is enriched with high amounts of vitamin C, which is already well known to brighten skin and lighten dark spots. It also protects skin against sun damage and boosts overall radiance, while treating clogged, enlarged pores.

And then, there’s the pleasing fragrance of rose. While it does not directly improve your skin condition, the natural scent helps to calm, soothe and relax, making the daily beauty ritual so much more enjoyable.

These are the latest rose-infused skincare products to add to your beauty arsenal.

#1: Dior Prestige Le Baume Demaquillant, $130
Made with rose wax and the brand’s Micro Active Rose Water, which has been extracted from the cells of its patented Rose de Granille, this cleansing balm transforms into a silky oil once it is applied onto the skin to melt away stubborn makeup. In contact with water, its texture turns into a milky emulsion that rinses away dirt and other impurities easily, leaving the complexion feeling thoroughly cleansed, smooth and supple. #2: Chantecaille Rose de Mai Face Oil, $310
Infused with 100 per cent natural ingredients like rosehip, evening primrose, rose damascena and rose geranium, this lightweight oil helps to hydrate, rejuvenate and clarify skin. It is also rich in vitamin C to brighten complexions. When used regularly, it boosts skin’s metabolism to lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. #3: Hera Rosy Satin Cream, $128
The key technology, the Rosy-Satin Complex is enriched with three nourishing ingredients. Achillea is said to be a healing herb that promotes skin regeneration. It also has similar effects to AHAs (chemical exfoliants) to gently remove dead skin cells and also features anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory benefits while balancing the skin’s moisture levels. Elasticity-supporting peptides strengthens collagen proteins that exist between the epidermis and dermis, as well as on the upper area of the skin that weakens with age. Lastly, antioxidant-rich rose essential oil brightens and hydrates skin for a plumper, more radiant complexion. #4: By Terry Baume De Rose Lip Scrub, $50
This is formulated with five key ingredients including rose butter, rose blossom essential wax, rosehip oil, black rose extract and pastel, as well as rose extracts to hydrate and exfoliate puckers. #5: Pixi Rose Caviar Essence, $36, Sephora
Flower oils such as rosa damascena and cananga odorata are stored in capsules that have been suspended in this weightless serum. Upon application, it melts onto the skin to deliver essential moisture and other benefits for an intense radiance boost. Formulated with antioxidant-rich natural oils, it softens, refines and even tones the skin. #6: Aprilskin Rose Water Modelling Mask, $8, Guardian
This DIY face mask is infused with skin-revitalising damask rose and hydrating pearl powder to moisturise for a plumper and smoother complexion.
