Winter might be on its way out, but for most of us dry skin still persists. If dull and dehydrated skin, riddled with dry patches, is the status of your skin right now–then we’ve got a miracle remedy for you. And it’s completely natural and inexpensive. Enter: Rosewater! 

Here, we got Dr Nirupama Parwanda, dermatologist and founder of Delhi-based Zolie Skin Clinic to spill the beans on this humble ingredient–which, by the way, suits all skin types.

1. It can help you combat puffy eyes
Long nights, bad eating habits, and genetics–these are some of the leading causes of puffy eyes. To banish this skin trouble for your life, soak cotton wool in chilled rose water and keep them on your eyes for 15 to 20 minutes. Et voila–no more puffy eyes.

2. Say goodbye to dandruff with the help of rosewater
Yes, rosewater can even help you get rid of pesky dandruff. It can treat mild level inflammation and eliminate dandruff. You can either mix it with your hair masque or spritz it on your scalp directly. That’s all it takes folks!

3. It can also give you glowing skin
If just moisturiser is not cutting it for you anymore, then bring rosewater into service. After cleansing your face at night, splash some rosewater and let your skin soak in the goodness. When your skin feels 90% dry, apply your skincare products like you normally would.
