Roses are not only for Valentine's day. But apart from romantic and beauty connotations, rose have healing properties too !!!!

Spray your skin with rose water during the day to hydrate your skin.

Take some rose essential in your palm and then gently massage the oil into the sun affected skin areas with your finger tips. Do this until the oil is completely absorbed before going to bed. Avoid contact with direct sunlight or apply a sun block over it. Used regularly at least a day for about three months nourishes the skin from inside.
