Skincare trends may come and go, but some classics stay close to our hearts, and rose water is one such beauty staple. My earliest memory of rose water takes me back to childhood when I watched my mum use it in a face pack. It smelled so good; I almost wanted to sip it! Decades later, my love for rose water remains the same. I’ve learned its versatility extends beyond mere refreshment – it’s a multitasking ingredient! From toning to treating acne, its uses are endless.
