Cornflower hydrosol can be used for the skin, in eye care and around the eyes. It can be stored at room temperature away from light or in the refrigerator for 6 months after opening.
For the skin
It is ideal for dull skin thanks to its revitalizing, toning and refreshing effect in addition to brightening the complexion. Its astringent and anti-inflammatory properties relieve skin prone to discomfort (irritation, redness...). This hydrosol can be used as an after-sun care to preserve the tan and soothe the skin in the event of sunburn.
How to use it ?
Spray product all over cleansed face and allow to air dry. It is a leave-in treatment.
Cornflower hydrosol is known and recognized to be an essential ally in eye contour care and eye care. It is a safe bet for soothing puffy, irritated eyes and reducing signs of fatigue. It diminishes the appearance of dark circles and deflates bags under the eyes thanks to its decongestant effect.
How to use it ?
Soak reusable wipes with cornflower floral water and apply them as a compress to the eyelids for a few minutes.
And if not, I have a trick that combines cornflower floral water and the cold. Yes you read that right, the cold!
Why put cold under the eyes?
The cold reduces inflammation by constricting the vessels and tightening the skin. It stimulates blood circulation which has the effect of decongesting puffiness.
A super simple perfect match to achieve, you will need:
1 Tube of empty lipstick and cornflower hydrosol.
Pour the blueberry hydrosol into the container and place in the freezer for a few hours. Once the hydrosol has hardened it is ready to use. It is enough to make one or two passages under the eyes then to massage 1 to 2 minutes. Then put the tube back in the freezer for next use.
A little bit of freshness with cornflower water under the eyes to revive the look, soothe tired eyes and fade dark circles! The effects of the combo between the cold and the cornflower hydrosol gives very good results.
If you don't have an empty tube, a simple ice cube tray will suffice. Be sure to fill them with a little blueberry hydrosol in order to make mini portions for use.
