Rose water has multiple beauty skin care uses; use it for treating acne and skin irritations; Rose Water nourishes and hydrates your skin. You can use Rose Water in a facial or hair mask, add Rose Water to your bath water and use Rose Water as a moisturizer after your bath.
Use Rosewater As A Moisturizing Cream
Add a few drops of rosewater to your usual moisturizer and mix well. It is suitable for both oily and dry skin because rosewater helps to maintain the pH balance of your skin and it can help to fight several varieties of dermatitis.
Rose Water is also used for smoothing wrinkles and restoring the vitality and moisture balance of facial skin (Apply directly on skin by using cotton ball in circular motions twice a day – before bed and in the morning).
Use on mature skin to rejuvenate and refresh. Use as an aftershave to soothe irritated skin. Lightly mist face as needed to invigorate the senses and mind.
Spray a little rose water on your face before cleansing to loosen dirt and foundation makeup while giving your face lasting softness without leaving it feeling greasy. You’ll spend less time scrubbing and the rose’s natural properties work well for sensitive, acne prone and aging skin alike.
Take half cup chickpea powder. Add one teaspoon turmeric powder and half cup of milk. Stir well. Apply this paste all over the forehead, face and neck. Wait for two minutes and wash off. This is good for oily or mixed skin types. The chickpea powder absorbs the extra oil and the milk nourishes your skin, leaving it tingling fresh.
Nature’s most effective natural cleanser. Take half a cup of cold milk. Add half teaspoon of salt. Stir. Take balls of cotton, soak and then gently dab milk and salt lotion all over forehead, face, and neck. Leave it on for 2-3 minutes. Apply again. Now rub gently in circular motions and wash off. The salt in the milk gently exfoliates dead skin and the milk nourishes the skin. Your face instantly gets a fresh and glowing look. This is good for all skin types.
Take one cucumber, grate it. Squeeze out the juice. Add to this 3-4 tablespoons of beaten curds. Stir well. Apply this paste all over the fore¬head, face and neck. Leave it on for 3-4 minutes. Wash face and neck with cold water. While cleaning and tight¬ening the pores, it also lightens blemishes and freckles. Very nourishing for the skin. You could use just grated cucumber as a face cleanser too.
Great for fine or lifeless hair, this will add body and luster:
Mix about 1/4 cup dry milk powder with enough water to make a paste, then gently massage the paste into your hair. Cover hair with a hot, damp towel and allow to remain on hair for about 30 minutes, changing the towel when it cools to keep the heat. Rinse and shampoo.
Milk Mask for Normal, Dry, or Mature Skin
Mix a tablespoon of liquid whole milk with 1/4 teaspoon almond oil. Apply a thin layer of this mixture to a clean face and allow to dry. Apply a second layer and allow to dry. Apply a third layer and allow to dry. Finally, apply a fourth layer and allow to dry. Once mask is hard and dry, wash off with a washcloth and lots of warm water.
1. For those who have dandruff, do not wash hair over dry scalp but try massaging with curds or refined oil for at least 45 minutes. Thicker oil like castor is not for monsoon as it is very hard to wash it away from hair and scalp. Massaging with warm coconut oil is best for the season.
2. For the hair to remain thick and black, apply warm oil mixed with curry leaves.
3.Use a herbal or a good anti dandruff shampoo. Wash hair every 2-3 times a week else the hair gets damaged due to pollutants in the air. For rough hair, using conditioners are a must.
4. Hair coloring or straightening is not a good idea for the season as it takes very long to wash your hair and dry, stay as natural as possible.
Use a face scrub twice a week to exfoliate.
Avoid heavy moisturising creams or oily foundations and cream-based colour makeup. Use a light mousse or a matte compact or simply a few drops of calamine lotion as a makeup base.
A facewash containing alpha hydroxyl acid (like Ahaglow) helps to freshen the skin, but do not use it more than once a day.
Use a toner each time you wash your face to close the pores and restore your skin’s pH balance.
Chemical peels (skin treatment performed by dermatologists) are also an excellent way to freshen up dull skin and the monsoon is the best weather for them — there is no risk of sun exposure and sensitivity after the peeling session. There are a variety of peels available nowadays — skin-lightening peels, acne peels, peels for sensitive skin, arginine peels for under-eye circles etc. Ask your dermatologist for details.
Have a healthy monsoon!
