Benefits of Rose Skincare
By: Guest: Elise Miller ~
Did you know that roses are more than simply pretty flowers? Roses are used as a powerful ingredient in skincare due to the fact that they are bursting with vitamins and antioxidants that work lovely wonders on the skin. Rose acts as a natural hydrator, soothes redness and can even help balance your mood. The nourishment and refreshment that roses can offer will have your skin feeling refreshed, nourished and healthy.
Roses acts as a toner and can prep the skin for moisture while plumping and hydrating facial skin tissue. Whether you have oily or dry skin, roses work wonders on all types of skin and can help support the absorption of nutrients and minimize trans-epidermal water loss in the skin. Rose is an astringent, which means it can help cleanse the skin, tighten pores and dry out excess oil. It also has the ability to ease redness and calm the skin from flare-ups. Rose is anti-inflammatory and antibacterial flower with the power to minimize wrinkles and reduce scars if you so choose. Because it is high in Vitamin C and E, your skin will receive a boost of moisture and collagen. Rose will make your skin both smoother and softer. Last but most definitely not least, it has the ability to uplift the mood, stimulate the mind, promote positivity, ease anxiety, and inspire romance. Rose is truly an amazing flower.
Adding Rose into Your Routine
Implementing rose into your skincare routine will help bring your skin to the next level by nourishing and hydrating the face. Both morning and night, after cleansing, mist a generous amount of Rose + Calendula Hydrating Facial Mist onto the face or spritz the mist onto a cotton round and apply to face. This mist is formulated with pure and natural ingredients to give your skin the moisture it deserves: farm-grown rose petals hydrosol, organic aloe vera and organic calendula flowers. After using the mist, apply Calendula + DMAE Facial Créme to the face and lightly blot a small amount of créme under the eyes, using the ring fingers. This nourishing créme is formulated with farm-grown calendula, rose petals, hyaluronic acid, rooibos, and DMAE that will help plump the skin and build collagen. For an extra boost of rose in your routine, after cleansing, use the Calming Herbal Facial Steam that harnesses the power of certified organic calendula, certified organic lavender, certified organic chamomile & certified organic rose petals. To use the steam, pour 2 cups of boiling water into large bowl allowing to cool for a few minutes. Add two or three tablespoons of facial steam and gently stir. Place your head 8-10 inches above bowl and drape a towel over your head and the bowl. Close your eyes to relax and breathe deeply over the steam for 5-10 minutes. This is wonderful self-care step to add in once a week. After the steam, follow with the créme from above. Watch your skin transform using the power of roses!
Skincare Habits to Start This Year

As we enter into the new year, now is a wonderful time to start healthy skincare habits that will have your beloved skin glowing, moisturized and pure. Using products that are formulated with high quality and natural ingredients are key to experiencing healthier looking skin. Here’s your simple guide with three habits and multiple natural skincare product ideas to take into the new year to give your skin some extra care. Love the skin you’re in!
Cleanse Morning and Night
Cleansing your skin both morning and night from the impurities that naturally occur on the skin is a wonderful way to keep it pure and fresh. For a gel cleanser, try Bodyceuticals Calendula + Flower Essences Cleanserby gently washing your face and neck with water. If you prefer an exfoliating cleanser, use Bodyceuticals Charcoal + Bamboo Facial Cleanser by applying to skin; you can also use an exfoliating mitt for added exfoliation. For an oil based cleanser, mix Bodyceuticals Calendula Bioactive Salvewith a bit of warm water and cleanse with a washcloth. Who doesn’t love a fresh face!?
Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize
The winter air and all those hot showers you may be taking can dry out your skin which is why moisturizing is incredibly important, not just during the cold months but also in every season. Apply facial créme to face and neck morning, night, and as needed during the day to properly hydrate the skin. For normal, dry and sensitive skin, use Bodyceuticals Calendula + DMAE Crémeformulated with DMAE, hyaluronic acid, calendula and rose petals to help restore, eplump and nourish the skin. If you love this DMAE créme, try Bodyceuticals Neroli + Calendula Firming Créme for a pure and fresh moisturizer that will plump and tone the skin. For normal, T zone, and combination skin types, use Bodyceuticals and Antioxidants Facial Créme. This one is formulated with cranberry, aloe, blueberry, neem and Vitamin C; this créme will help balance and purify the skin. In addition, this one is often a great fit for teenagers. For normal skin with age spots, sun spots or mild discoloration, Bodyceuticals Calendula + Vitamin C Créme is a great choice to help aid uneven skin tone and texture while firming and plumping the facial tissue.
Lock in moisture with a high quality oil and your skin will thank you. Oil is the key to that beloved glow! A winter favorite is the luxe and lightweight Bodyceuticals Vanilla + Avocado Oil that smells like holiday cookies and absorbs into the skin for nourishment and hydration. For a wonderful morning and night combo to add to your skincare routine, use Bodyceuticals Berry Beauty Drops Duothat will boost your skin’s glow and leave the skin feeling silky soft by nourishing and restoring the skin through the power of blackberries and raspberries. For the ultimate skin treatment for whole body care, use Bodyceuticals Organic Calendula Oil.
