Updated: Oct 23, 2022

What are hydrosols?

Hydrosols or known also as floral waters are a natural by-product of the distillation process used to create essential oils and they offer a myriad of benefits for both skin and hair.

Hydrosols are essentially a solution in water of the plant's aromatic compounds from where their name - 'hydro' for water and 'sol' for a solution. Just like essential oils, hydrosols contain the plant's aromatic compounds, but because they're diluted in water, they can be applied directly to the skin without causing any irritation.

Hydrosols are completely natural and represent a great way to add extra moisture, nutrients, antioxidants and soothers to your skin. They can help to soothe and calm irritated skin, and they can also help to reduce redness and inflammation. This makes them a great choice for everyone including babies and people with skin conditions or for anyone who wants to enjoy the healing benefits of essential oils without having to worry about diluting them properly.

5 reasons to include hydrosols in your skincare routine

Hydrosols or floral waters can be used in a variety of ways, but here are 5 reasons to include them in your skincare routine:

Hydrosols are a great way to boost the effectiveness of serums and moisturizers by increasing their absorption into the skin

Using hydrosol as a toner or facial mist is a great way to boost the effectiveness of your other skincare products. Just spritz it on after cleansing and before applying serums, creams, or oils. The hydrosol will help to prep your skin and make it more receptive to the other products.

Hydrosols are intensely hydrating and help to protect the skin from damage

Hydrosols are intensely hydrating and are rich in antioxidants that can help to protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that damage cells, causing inflammation and premature ageing. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals, preventing them from causing damage. Including a hydrosol in your skincare routine can help keep your skin looking young and healthy by harnessing the power of natural antioxidants.

Hydrosols can be used as a 100% natural cleansing toner

Hydrosols can be used as a natural cleansing toner packed with potent plant extracts.

Add a few drops to a cotton pad and wipe it over your face to remove the grime of the day and refresh the skin. The hydrosol will help to remove makeup leftovers, dust and impurities trapped in the skin and leave your skin feeling refreshed and hydrated while preserving your skin barrier at the same time.

This makes hydrosols an excellent addition to your skincare routine as they are natural, potent yet gentle and non-irritating for the skin.

Hydrosols are also perfect for a morning cleanse. Spritz the face and gently wipe with a cotton pad to cleanse the skin, while preserving the skin's barrier, energising the skin and prepping it for the next step.

Hydrosols are refreshing and cooling and help soothe and calm the skin

Hydrosols are the perfect way to cool down on a hot summer day. Just spritz yourself with a hydrosol, and you'll instantly feel refreshed and cool.

They're also great for cooling down sunburned skin. Just mist a lemon balm hydrosol onto the affected area, which will help to soothe the pain and reduce inflammation.

Hydrosols can also be used to calm and soothe other types of skin irritations, such as nappy rash, razor rash, plant and insect stings, eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis. So they are ideal for the whole family.

Just apply the hydrosol to the affected area with a cotton pad or spray it on and let it work its magic.

Hydrosols help to balance the skin's pH level

Hydrosols can help to balance the skin's pH level. The skin's pH level is a measure of its acidity or alkalinity. A healthy pH level is between 4.5 and 5.5. When the skin's pH level gets out of balance, it can lead to dryness, irritation, and inflammation.

Hydrosols can help to restore the skin's pH level to its natural state as they are naturally slightly acidic, providing relief from these symptoms.

Just spritz on the face or apply with a cotton pad. You can also mist it at on anytime throughout the day as needed.

Hydrosols have many applications and can be used in a variety of ways to improve your skincare routine. Just spritz anytime anywhere.

Hydrosols can be used by everyone and are good on babies too.

If you have sensitive skin, Pure Rose Hydrosol is a good choice as it is very gentle.

For those with oily skin, Pure Lavender Hydrosol can be helpful in balancing sebum production.

Pure Lemon Balm Hydrosol is good for cooling and soothing the skin.

Pure Chamomile Hydrosol is perfect for use on babies as it is very gentle and calming.

Pure Sage Hydrosol is good for acne-prone skin as it has antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties and is a great anti-age toner that helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

So, there you have it – 5 reasons to include hydrosols in your skincare routine. Give them a try and see for yourself how they can improve your skin health!
