Roses have a long history in the beauty world. Cleopatra famously used a rose water toner on the regular! It’s a great tip, too, as rose essential oil is full of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that help fight inflammation and give skin a youthful glow. It’s also naturally emollient to soothe dry, flaky skin and can even help keep acne at bay.
This DIY sugar scrub recipe incorporates real roses to give it a gorgeous pink color and rose essential oil for antiaging benefits. Plus, it smells amazing! Try using day-old roses for the best results.
