The rose is a very special flower – colourful, sensual, fragrant and oh so British – but it is also a secret ingredient for a number of special skincare products designed to enhance our complexions and boost hydration.
Rose oil is considered highly effective for soothing dry skin and inflammation, and its high levels of vitamin C make it a powerful antioxidant and skin protector.
So in order to make the most of this iconic flower and its natural beauty benefits, we have put together a guide to some of the best products on the market designed especially for sensitive skin.
Soak yourself in a relaxing bath filled with a few glugs of this rich, creamy product and you will be in heaven – well almost. Containing extracts of organic musk rose, jojoba and olive oil, your skin will be left feeling beautifully nourished and blissfully cleansed.
Ladies with very sensitive skin will benefit from a daily dose of rosehip oil mixed into a dollop of their favourite moisturiser. Packed full of vitamins A and E, omega 9, 3, and 6, as well as fatty acids, A’kin Pure Rosehip Oil will revitalise your skin and provide super intensive moisturisation. Apply before bed to ensure it soaks in overnight.
This is a refreshing yet ultra-gentle toner that wipes away excess grime without aggravating even the most sensitive of skin. Plus the cooling rose water will help to soothe any irritation.
Pricey, but definitely worth the splurge, this body cream is super luxurious and contains heaps of skin boosting ingredients including evening primrose, geranium, shea butter and of course rose oil. Key benefits include instantly softer skin and essential fatty acids which encourage healthy skin cell formation.
Again, not cheap but this rich moisturiser is the ultimate celebrity beauty buy and uses rose petals picked by hand to strengthen the skin and soothe redness. There is even a lighter version for oily or combination skin available.
