With the arrival of the New Year comes the desire to change things up a bit – New Year’s resolutions anyone? Often that means a change to a healthier lifestyle complete with a healthy living attitude. And this newfound lifestyle isn’t just about diet and exercise, it’s about your beauty routine too. Turning to natural beauty products is one way to go about creating a healthier beauty routine. And what’s one of the best kept natural beauty secrets out there? Hydrosols! There are countless benefits and uses for.
First things first: what are hydrosols?
Hydrosols are pure healing waters that are produced during distillation. When the plant material is distilled, it’s exposed to boiling water, steam or both. The steam then breaks open the structures of the plant that contain the essential oil and other plant fluids. The water then contains the essence of everything that was alive and growing in the plant. The essential oil and hydrosol separate after distillation is complete, with the essential oil floating on top of the hydrosol. Misting and spraying are the most common ways to use hydrosols, especially for beauty. For your skin, hydrosols can help support hydration, soothe inflammation, help cell regeneration and balance sebum. They are a great way to harness plant actives for use on your skin.
Hydrosols allow you to continuously replenish the water content in your skin previously lost due to age and environment.
As you age, your skin becomes thinner and retains less water than before; its collagen and elastin levels also decrease as time goes by. With continuous water replenishment throughout the day, the skin remains plump and healthy looking.
