Although roses are considered the flowers of romance, the natural extracts found in the flower are actually making numerous appearances in beauty products. In addition to the pleasant scent, rose extracts actually have healing, moisturizing and anti-inflammatory compounds that leave your skin silky and hydrated.
Face and eye products are incorporating rose extracts to help firm and brighten these tender areas. The result is a natural, glowing complexion with a luscious scent. Rose ingredients can be found in a wide variety of products including face and body creams, rose oils, facial mists, lipsticks, perfumes and bath soaps.
Another reason we are all about the roses? The scent has been shown to boost energy and help minimize symptoms of stress and anxiety. With busy lives and so much to do, having a naturally derived product that offers beauty benefits and helps combat stress is a no brainer!
