Skin Care Tip Of The Week *DIY rose water toner*

Monday, September 19, 2011

This weeks skin care DIY is one of my favorites! Not only does it smell amazing but it has wonderful benefits for your skin.

Rose water toner benefits:
  • Can be used on all skin types
  • Soothing and nourishing
  • Toning and rejuvenating
  • Great makeup setter. You can do a few sprays after you apply your makeup for that dewy effect.
  • Helps heal sunburns and wounds
  • Can help balance your skin
What you will need:
  • Dried rose buds. You can find these in bulk at your local health food store.
  • Distilled or filtered water
  • Empty spray bottle

How to make your own rose water toner:
  • Place about 1/2 cup of dried rose buds into a glass container
  • Pour hot distilled or filtered water over the rose hips
  • Let sit for about 1-2 hours
  • Using a cheesecloth or strainer pour the rose water into a spray bottle

Since your toner is all natural and contains no preservatives you need to keep it in the fridge. Use it within one week. You will love how soothing and refreshing this is!

I need this for that dewy effect after I do my makeup! And the idea of spritzing something cool and fragrant on my face sounds pretty amazing :)

Love it, it seam easy and pretty.

Peggy said...

I have a quick question... did you use rose hips or dried roses? The picture you have posted if of dried roses. Rose hips form after the rose has bloomed and all the petals have fallen off, basically it is the fruit of the rose and is normally an orangish red in color. It makes a lovely tea and is high in vitamin C. Just curious as I have dried rose hips but no dried rosebuds.

Thanks!

TJ said...

Great tutorial! Rose water is a great toner, hydrator, and refresher for the skin.

vedette said...

I love the idea. I have alot of acne scars on my face, will that help it some?

Courtney said...

I keep reading about rosewater, but didn't know what it was used for so thanks for the post. I've been learning a lot of new tricks from different beauty sites including one of my faves: http://www.taaz.com/trends/trends.html! :)

Jennifer Swift said...

I've tried using rosewater and I really feel rejuvenated after. I love the idea of using rose in creating a rejuvenating toner.

This is one of the best DIY projects I learned. It's good to know how to make your own toner. It's simple yet very safe. Rose is known to give a rejuvenating effect to the skin. I will make another one this weekend.

What a creative idea! Not only is rosewater great for skin, it makes delicious almond shake as well!

I found using a french press coffee pot works great for straining herbs for infused water(s)

Lyv Anthony said...

I'm am a working herbalist and make many of my own skin care products. This is a simple and easy recipe and I like it. I am however confused by the fact that you show rose buds in the image shown and then call for rose hips in the recipe. The two are NOT the same. For this you want the buds. Not the hips. :) Hope everyone enjoys the end product as much as I do!

Anonymous said...

Simply facially refreshing!

Debbie said...

Rose Hips or Rose Buds? Picture looks like buds. Thanks for the info!

Cindi said...

Thank you, Liv, for the info. I too was confused by the discrepancy!

Lindsay @ Delighted Momma said...

For those of you who asked questions regarding the image above-- you can use rose hips OR Rose buds for this. Both will produce wonderful benefits.

The Cunningham Family said...

I grow my own roses. Can I use my own roses to make this?

young hopes said...

so simple and so effective, this will surely give a glow on the face. rose water is the best when it comes to skin toning

salexa said...

If you add a couple drops of Vitamin E oil will it last longer??

sudha said...

I used rose buds from my backyard, and used filtered water...and it turned into a brown color would you know why.....it is not clear like yours
