I recently read about rose water and the beauty-boosting benefits of the seemingly simple solution. I kind of forgot about it and then, while pacing the aisles during a weekly grocery shop (one of my favourite times of the week – serious), I saw a bottle of it in the International aisle for – get this – $1.99. It was 100% pure, an imported Mideast brand. I thought, k, I don’t have much to lose. I’m doing this. After all, rose water is a favourite among Indian and Middle Eastern households and these women have their fair share of beauty secrets – and they’re gorgeous – so I will continue to research.
