Desire Healthier Skin + Hair? Then Try Rose Water Mist

We've all heard about the healthy benefits of rosewater, but some might not believe this super fine mist really does anything good.

This highly fragrant water flower DOES offer hydration to skin and damaged hair, according to the experts.

Rose water is a by-product from rose oil which is made by steam-distilling the crushed petals of roses, a process first developed in Persia.

Rosewater allows the complexion to feel clean +  balanced and shrinks your pores when you put it on.

For the hair, rose water offers the same, hydrating benefits with a boost in volume, and with supposedly, hair-coloring preservation.
We found an excellent rose water mist by Jurlique ($35, at Sephora).

Okay....NOT the cheapest rose water around, but this one is of wonderful, healthy properties:

-Rose Oil: Softens balances and restores skin.
-Marshmallow Extract: Offers intensive hydrating and softening properties that rebalance dryness on the skin.
-Aloe: A succulent perennial of the lily family with skin enhancing value in the juice of its leaves. The leaf gel is rich in beneficial polysaccharides and amino acids and has been used to soothe and calm the skin for more than 2500 years.
