Floral waters can be added into skincare routines for refreshing and revitalising the skin. They contain all the beneficial essences of the plant from which they are extracted from. They are only different in that they are milder than the essential oils thus are more suitable for direct use on the skin and face.
Floral waters are slowly replacing toners which are necessary in skin care regimes since they balance the skin’s pH levels while brightening, cleansing, hydrating and toning it. But flower waters provide all of these benefits with even more unique properties of natural ingredients.
Rosemary floral water is slightly astringent and is therefore useful in toning slightly oily complexions. The uplifting scent of Rosemary makes it ideal for use before time of intense concentration and the stimulatory nature helps encourage healthy blood flow in the skin surface.
