7 Ways Roses Can Make You Feel Extra-Pretty

Every rose has its thorn—and also a lot of amazing skin-care benefits.

April showers bring May flowers—and if you want to calm red, dry skin, this prickly flower is best enjoyed when it's infused in your skin-care products. "Rose helps to calm and soothe, as well as tone and hydrate," say Lev Glazman and Alina Roytberg, founders of Fresh. "Making it ideal for sensitive skin."

A single flower can work a lot of skin-care magic—rosewater soothes, rosehip improves tone, and rose oil moisturizes. "Plus, the scent of rose adds a unique mood-enhancing quality to the experience of using the products," say Glazman and Roytberg. This may just be the best way to wear florals this spring.
