Rose petals are great for exfoliating the skin

Ever wondered how you can exfoliate your skin with rose petals? Here are some tips on how to do it!

Be sure that the petals are fresh and not wilted or dried out. These types of petals won’t have a lot of “sugar” content in them, which is what will slough off dead skin cells from your face. The best time to get roses for this purpose is when they’re in season, during Springtime, right after the rainy season has passed and the flowers have been open for about a week or two. If you wait too long, their sugars will start breaking down into acids and other compounds that will irritate your skin instead of soothing like regular sugar.

There are many benefits to using rose petals for exfoliating the skin. First, it is a natural option, so you don’t have to worry about harsh chemicals or additives. They are also inexpensive and last a long time when stored properly in the fridge.
