How to use lavender hydrosol?

Obtained through steam distillation of lavender flowers, lavender hydrosol is a purifying treatment for the skin. Thanks to its purifying and regenerating benefits, it is particularly recommended for the care of oily skin. We provide some information on the use of lavender hydrosol depending on the skin type.

What are the benefits of lavender?

Appreciated for its sweet fragrance in the perfume industry, lavender also finds a place in skincare production due to its numerous benefits. Lavender belongs to the Lamiaceae family. There are many varieties, with true lavender and lavandin being relatively common. True lavender, also known as fine lavender or Lavandula augustifolia, is the one used to produce essential oil or hydrosol.

Lavender hydrosol possesses purifying and astringent properties. It thus helps to eliminate excess sebum and unclog pores. Lavender hydrosol is also soothing and antiseptic. Its application on the skin can therefore alleviate discomfort caused by irritations. Thanks to its regenerative properties, lavender hydrosol stimulates cellular renewal, thereby promoting healing.

Lavender hydrosol for oily skin.

Oily skin is characterised by an overproduction of sebum, which is responsible for the skin's shiny appearance throughout the day. Excess sebum clogs the pores and promotes the appearance of comedones. Thanks to its purifying action, lavender hydrosol helps to care for oily skin by eliminating excess sebum. The pores are deeply cleansed, the skin is sanitised, and the complexion is even. The hydrosol tones the skin and reduces skin imperfections.

To reap the benefits of lavender hydrosol, cleanse your skin before carefully drying it. Apply the hydrosol to your skin using a cotton pad, morning and/or evening before your moisturising cream. Don't forget that oily skin also needs to be moisturised. Our purifying cream enriched with bamboo extract helps to hydrate the skin, regulate sebum production, all without leaving a greasy finish.

Lavender hydrosol for acne-prone and sensitive skin types.

Suitable for combination to oily skin types, lavender hydrosol is also a saviour for sensitive skin due to its soothing action. It alleviates irritations and itchiness. It soothes sunburn while softening the skin. Thanks to its astringent action, lavender hydrosol removes impurities and purifies the skin, thus limiting the appearance of blemishes. The skin is purified, soft and soothed. Moreover, it promotes the healing of superficial wounds left by acne.

Use lavender hydrosol before your moisturising serum, morning and/or evening on clean, dry skin. You can apply it directly with your fingers using circular motions or with a cotton pad.

Lavender hydrosol is obtained by steam distillation of lavender flowers. This delicate preparation should be stored away from light and heat, preferably in an opaque bottle. Ensure the lid is properly closed after each use. Moreover, it is recommended to opt for a hydrosol prepared with flowers sourced from organic farming.
