How to apply cornflower hydrosol?

Known botanically as Centaurea cyanus, the cornflower is a flower from the Asteraceae family. It is used not only to beautify green spaces, but also as a medicinal plant or condiment. In cosmetology, cornflower hydrosol is used to create treatments intended for specific use.

A reminder of the properties of cornflower.

In cosmetology, cornflower is used in the form of a hydrosol, a solution obtained after the distillation of the plant. Less concentrated than essential oil, this formula nonetheless contains all the active principles of the cornflower. Cornflower hydrosol is known for its decongestant, soothing properties, against inflammation or preventing the proliferation of bacteria. It also restores radiance and vitality to the skin. It is used for facial skin, and more specifically, the eye contour.

Cornflower hydrosol is among the few treatments that can be applied to the eye contour. It is chosen for its decongestant properties that eliminate dark circles and bags. With daily application, it reduces the intensity of the colour of dark circles and results in a less tired-looking appearance. This formula also soothes irritated eyes, red eyes, and swollen eyelids. Thanks to the cornflower hydrosol, microcirculation of the blood is stimulated. As a result, the fluid that accumulates in the form of bags is easily drained away.

The application of cornflower hydrosol should be carried out regularly. To alleviate dark circles and puffiness, soak a cotton pad or compress in the solution and apply it to each of your eyes every morning upon waking. Leave it on for a few minutes. To enhance its effect, combine this treatment with cold. To do this, place the cornflower hydrosol in the refrigerator. All you need to do is pour a few drops onto a cotton pad and place it on your eye.
