It’s February, and we’re all feeling a little loved up here at ABW. So what better time to focus this month on roses. We love them. Not only do they look amazing, taste great (check out our recipe for rose & mint infused water), but are SO beneficial to skin. Here’s why it's time to get your rose on…

1. Rose is a natural moisturiser

The natural oils found in roses help lock moisture into the skin, keeping it feeling silky smooth and soft. Rose is especially beneficial for those with sensitive skin as the sugars in it's petals create a soothing effect.

2. Rose is packed full of antioxidants

Roses contain high levels of vitamin C, a powerful anitoxidant. It helps to protect and repair the skin from environmental pollution and damage.

3. Rose tones too

Rose is like a natural all-in-one beauty product. As a natural astringent, rose helps to tighten pores and restore suppleness, leaving skin all smooth and glowey.

4. Rose is anti-inflammatory

Rose oils can help to reduce swelling and redness in the skin. It's calming properties also work a treat on rosecea and eczema. Look for products with natural rose oils in.

5. Roses smell so beautiful

We just can't get enough of the natural rose scent...not that fabricated one you get...but really hardcore rose, made out of real roses, that smell just AMAZING. Try Love + Roses for a hit of the good stuff.
