Anyway, every problem has got a solution and so is this.
Rose water combined with lemon juice can result into making your pimples go away. All you’ve to do is apply the mixture to the affected area and leave it there for 15 minutes. Slowly and steadily, the acne would vanish.

Having frizzy hair is pretty common with people wandering out against the heat and the sun. This carelessness results into the lack of moisture, that can finally lead onto major hair loss. So, what is the solution? Rose water! With the properties and benefits of rose water, it can help transforming hair soft and silky. No matter if you use it as a conditioner or a serum, either way it is going to help them grow and gather strength.
