Why Rose Water is Good for Your Skin
Rose water has some incredible benefits for your skin. There’s a reason you find it in so many skincare products. But those can be overpriced. If you make your own DIY rose water setting spray, you can have all those same benefits without spending a small fortune. Rose water is known for toning, hydrating skin cells, reducing excess oils on the skin, shrinking up large pores, and having incredible soothing properties. Plus, in the form of this DIY rose water setting spray, you can set your makeup without smudging or smearing and keep your face looking fresh and fabulous all-day long. All night too!
How to Make DIY Rose Water Setting Spray
One thing you should be sure to do is to purchase 100% organic and pure rose water. Make sure it is USDA Certified Organic or else you’ll be getting some pesticide in there too. You can also opt to make your own rose water but you should take care to buy organic with the roses you use if you do. Make sure you have a clean 4-ounce spray bottle ready before you begin.
- 1/2 cup pure organic rose water
- 1/2 tsp vegetable glycerin
- 1/2 tsp argan oil
What to do:
- Add the rose water into your spray bottle.
- Add the vegetable glycerin and the argan oil.
- Close it up and shake it with all you’ve got.
- Use it whenever you want, but make sure to shake it before you spray it.
Tips for Using Your Rose Water Setting Spray
In order to get the best results out of your DIY rose water setting spray, you’ll want to hold it about 8 to 12 inches away from your face before spraying. Simply spray your face after you finish your makeup application. Allow it to dry and that’s it!
Now setting your makeup is easier, more natural, more fragrant and more affordable than ever! With the money you save on buying pricey setting sprays, you can totally go shopping for something fabulous to wear!
