Renowned for its holistic healing qualities, rosewater has been used for centuries by women around the world, to heal ailments, add flavour to food and to soothe and cleanse the skin. Cleopatra – the Queen of ancient Egypt – drenched her skin in gallons of the stuff to keep her complexion cool, bright and flawlessly clear.

Rosewater is a gentle, natural ingredient that really does work wonders on the skin. It helps hydrate, refresh, soothe and cleanse all in one, making this humble floral mist the most hardworking of beautifying multitaskers.

But what really makes it such a brilliant beauty buy is its super-affordable price tag. You can pick up a bottle for less than £5 and it can double up for so many different uses. Here are 6 clever ways to use it.

Make-up remover

No need for greasy, oily formulas, rosewater is incredibly effective at rubbing away the harshest of long-wear make-up. It's even great at tackling waterproof mascaras, yet gentle enough to avoid irritating the skin or eyes. Plus, a dab of rosewater will add moisture to your skin, keeping it silky soft and hyper-hydrated.

2. Cleanser and Toner

See, we told you it was an all in one! Whilst rosewater is a dab hand at removing the toughest of eye make-up, a few drops will also gently cleanse and tone the skin. Rosewater is particularly effective at treating rosacea or acne-prone skin, due to its bacteria-busting agents, so it keeps the skin clear. Plus, it's extremely gentle and soothing on problem skin, so will decrease redness and calm irritating flare-ups.

3. Eye Brightner

As we already know, rosewater calms irritated skin, banishing redness and balancing discolouration. So if you wake up with dark, puffy eyes, a swift soak with a little rosewater should soothe and de-puff in a flash. Simply soak a cotton wool pad in rosewater and then place onto your eyes for 5 minutes. Any dark, puffy spots should start to quickly disappear, and the revitalising, cooling sensation should also wake you up!

4. Conditioning Hair Treatment

If your tresses are crying out for a little TLC, apply rosewater after shampooing as an enriching, conditioning hair treatment. Your hair will be left super-soft and with a lustrous shine.

5. Bath Splash

A few drops of rosewater in your bath will create a soothing, relaxing fragrance that you'll want to soak in for hours. Plus, the scent will linger deliciously on your skin, to keep you smelling fresh and fragrant all day.

6. Summer Scent

For a touch of au natural, use a simple splash of rosewater as an uplifting summer fragrance. It makes a great alternative if you're waiting until payday to buy your next bottle of expensive Chanel!
