Roses are rich in vitamin C, B, and K and thus result in smooth and flawless skin tone when regularly used. Let’s look into them in detail to know more benefits of rose petal powder to our skin.

Benefits & Uses of Rose petal powder for skin:
Evens skin tone:
We know that rose water can be used as a natural toner. Similarly, the regular application of rose petal powder fights pigmentation and restores your skin to its original tone.
Applying rose petal powder on a daily basis improves your complexion to the next level. It gives you pinkish-white soft skin.
Discard dark circles:
It not only acts as a coolant to your skin but also gets rid of the dark circles around your eyes.

Prevents aging and wrinkles:
The anti-aging property in the rose powder prevents you from getting wrinkles and also it protects you from free radicals when applied while you’re heading out.
It’s a great substitute for commercial scrubs or exfoliators which may have plastic beads in them for better exfoliation. These beads get into the ocean and pollute it. They are very tiny which makes them impossible to separate from the water which is quite alarming. Hence, it is always wise to choose natural and homemade exfoliators over commercial ones.
- Take equal amounts of rose powder and gram flour (1:1).
- Add a little amount of water to make it a paste.
- Apply this mixture in a circular motion and leave it for 15 to 20 minutes.
- Once it’s dried completely, wash off the face with cold water. While washing, make sure to scrub your face gently in a circular motion to get rid of the dead skin.
In this way, we can remove the clogged pores. But don’t over-exfoliate because we need our dead skin to prevent our skin from harmful radiations like UV rays. Remember, one should not exfoliate their skin daily. Once a week will be more than good.
Acts as a natural cleanser:
Rose powder removes dirt and excess oil from the pores and helps you to get rid of the bacteria with the help of its anti-bacterial property.
The rose petal powder treats burns and plays the role of natural coolant for your skin.
The antioxidant property in the rose powder discards any skin irritation and soothes your skin.

Rose petal face & body powder:
The commercial body powder is not quite safe to use. That’s why we are going for the alternative which is completely natural. How the rose powder helps us here? Well, the application of rose petal powder controls your excessive sweat and provides you with a pleasant smell. Here is the recipe!
- Rose petal powder – 1/2 cup
- Corn starch – 1/2 cup
- Rice flour – 1/2 cup
- Essential oil (Rose or Lavender)- 8 to 10 drops (optional)
Mix all the 3 ingredients thoroughly and add the essential oil in drops and blend them till the oil is completely absorbed by the mixture.
Store it in an airtight container. Use like any other body powder.
Homemade Rose petal powder blush:
Take 2 tablespoons of rose powder with 1 tablespoon of corn starch and mix them together. That’s it, your pink blush is ready. The resultant blush color will be based on the color of the roses you’ve picked.
Rose powder in the lip balm:
In the DIY Lip Balm, we have used rose powder to get a pink shade to it. Check out the recipe here.
3 types of Rose petal powder facemask:
The rose petal powder can be mixed with other natural ingredients to maximize the results.
Rose powder with Aloe vera:
- Cut a fresh aloe vera leaf from the plant and squeeze the gel from it.
- Take a tablespoon of aloe vera juice/ gel and mix them with 1 spoon of rose petal powder.
- Apply it to your face gently in a circular motion.
- Wash it after 15 minutes in the cold water.
If you’re into natural skin and hair care remedies, you should have known the amazing benefits of aloe vera. I love aloe vera personally because we can use them in many health and beauty DIY recipes.
It has numerous benefits from treating hair, dark circles, acne-prone skin, burns, sunburns, digestive problems and the list goes on.
They are rich in vitamin A, C, E, and seven of the 8 amino acids.
By drinking aloe vera juice, one can treat constipation, lower blood sugar, and have gorgeous hair and flawless rejuvenating skin. So, this combo works perfectly for your dull skin with wrinkles.
Rose powder with milk:
- Dilute a tablespoon of rose petal powder with a few drops of milk till it turns to a paste-like consistency.
- Apply this mixture for 15 to 20 minutes and wash out with cold water.
The reason for washing with cold water is to close the pores of the skin. Milk has loads of benefits to the skin. It has vitamin A, D, B6, B12, calcium, potassium, magnesium, lactic acid, and selenium. All these will fight acne, dull, uneven skin, and wrinkles. It protects your skin from damage and gives radiant to your skin.
When the rose powder is combined with milk, it hydrates your skin and gets rid of the dryness.
Rose petal powder for skin whitening (Rose powder + orange peel powder):
- Mix equal quantities of rose petal and orange peel powder.
- Dilute the mix in water and apply it to your face.
- After 15 minutes, get rid of the mask completely with cold water and pat dry your skin.
This mask helps to brighten your skin since both are high in Vitamin C (which is vital for collagen production and thus improves elasticity and makes your skin look young and fresh).
And we know that the orange gives a fair complexion and hence people who are trying to get a fair complexion, consume a lot of oranges as it is or in the form of juice.

Try to use any of these facemasks daily or thrice a week for best results. However, do a patch test before going for any remedy.

Reducing trash with Rose petal powder:
Look at the diverse features of the rose petal powder! We’re reducing a large amount of trash just by using this single ingredient. You can replace your cleanser, toner, scrubs, face masks, blush, body powder, deodorant, and the list goes on.
Here you are not only avoiding the harsh chemicals used in them but also their plastic packaging which is really hard to recycle. As I said before, there are some possibilities that your beauty products also may have microbeads which are nothing but microplastics.
So, with these DIYs, we are not only saving ourselves from skin cancer but also the ocean animals and the environment!
