Rose Water and Hyaluronic Acid: A Dynamic Duo for Skincare
When combined, rose water and hyaluronic acid create a dynamic duo that not only hydrates but also revitalises a complexion, offering a holistic approach to skincare. In this article, we will be discussing these must-have skincare ingredients and how you can incorporate them into your beauty regimen.
The History Of Rose Water
Rose water has been at the centre of the beauty world for many, many centuries. Rose water is known for its soothing and hydrating properties. Rose water is renowned for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant elements. This magical ingredient is also known for its pH-balancing qualities and how it can be sustainable for various skin types. Rose water can also have a calming and soothing effect, and it can relieve stress. Many people tend to use the subtle rose fragrance as an aromatherapeutic tool.
The Hydration Revolution with Hyaluronic Acid
Enter, hyaluronic acid or otherwise known as HA. Hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in the skin and is one of the key components in maintaining hydration. HA’s have the ability to attract and retain moisture.
Fun fact, they can also hold up to 1000 times its weight in water and therefore, can provide intense hydrating and plumping effects. Think, fine lines and wrinkles magically gone. Products with hyaluronic acid can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by promoting a supple and youthful complexion.
The Combination of Rose Water and Hyaluronic Acid
Now, if you have been following us for a while, you will understand our love affair with rose water. Here at Hemsley Organics, we understand the magical properties that rose water can hold. We use Bulgarian Rose Water as one of our main ingredients in most of our products. Take our Smooth & Hydrate Cream Cleanser for example - this light and nourishing formula will melt away daily impurities and even the heaviest of makeup without stripping your skin's natural barrier.
So, how does rose water and hyaluronic acid work together? The soothing and anti-inflammatory properties of rose water complement the hydrating and plumping effect of hyaluronic acid (HA). Not only this, but rose water can also facilitate the absorption of HA into the skin. This can maximise the benefits of your skincare products. By incorporating both ingredients into your standard beauty routine you can get optimal results.
How to Incorporate Rose Water and Hyaluronic Acid into Your Routine
But how? How do you incorporate rose water and hyaluronic acid (HA) into your beauty routine? We would recommend getting your hands on specific products which have rose water present in them. As mentioned above, here at Hemsley Organics, we love rose water and it would be hard to find one of our products that doesn’t have this magical ingredient in it. If you use our Smooth & Hydrate Cream Cleanser or even one of our other products, it can be perfectly paired with a hyaluronic acid.
In terms of layering these products together, we would recommend following your normal skincare routine. First start with your cleanser (we, of course would recommend our Smooth & Hydrate Cream Cleanser), followed by a toner, such as our Hydrating Skin Mist and then, add your hyaluronic acid - this will prepare your skin for your moisturiser. As for moisturisers, we would suggest our Hydrating Age Defying Day Cream.
