This fall, adopt a rose-based beauty routine
Who doesn’t enjoy the delicate, bewitching scent of roses? Not Empress Joséphine, who even had her own rose bible, nor Emma Watson, who favours green cosmetics and uses rose oil in her beauty routine, and certainly not the Maison Gellé Frères, which uses this flower in its royal Chérissime collection.
Not only the rose is one of the main ingredients in a perfumer’s palette, but its moisturising and antioxidant properties are also highly beneficial for the skin. And that’s not all... In this article, we’ve listed all the ways you can use roses and how much pleasure you can get out of it. This well-being tip, which has been passed down through centuries, will soon be part of your beauty routine!
The benefits of rose oil
Did you know that rose oil is packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants? It owes its multiple virtues to the main active ingredients: citronellol, nerol, geraniol and nonadecane. Oily or mixed skins will use it as an astringent to normalise or control sebum secretion. Sensitive skins will benefit from its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties to reduce redness and sooth irritation.
The rose in all its forms: what products for my beauty routine?
Damask rose essential oil
Is your skin often dull and tired? Let us introduce you to your new ally to slow down skin aging and give it a magnificent glow! Also known as the Bulgarian rose, the Damask rose is famous for its regenerating and anti-aging properties. It helps combat wrinkles, loss of skin radiance and dark circles. In short, the Damask rose is the queen of essential oils… A genuine treasure to add to your beauty routine this fall!
Three drops of Miracle Trianon oil each time you use our Chérissime face mask, which contains Damask rose, are enough to make your skin more supple and plumped up.
Rose hip seed oil
Rich in polyunsaturated essential fatty acids and carotenoids, plant pigments that act effectively as antioxidants, rose hip seed oil is known for its restorative properties. It is extracted from a South American rose, Rosa rubiginosa, and then cold-pressed to retain the virtues of the flower’s seeds. Rose hip helps improve the appearance of damaged skin, whether it be scars, stretch marks, pimples or age spots.
You will find rose hip seed oil in nourishing day and night creams, anti-aging creams, healing treatments and restorative emulsions that accelerate cell regeneration.
This floral water is obtained through the distillation of rose petals, a process that helps get rid of chemical agents that are so harmful to the skin. It has been used for centuries by Middle-East women, who have long been aware of its benefits for the skin and hair. September is as good a time as any to catch up if you haven’t yet adopted this beauty routine!
Because of its anti-inflammatory properties, rose water is a safe choice for sensitive skins and people who regularly suffer from eczema or redness. Used as a cleansing lotion, it removes all impurities accumulated during the day as well as dead skin. When used as a spray mist, rose water can soften and thoroughly hydrate the skin.
