The orange blossom hydrosol for oily skin.

The orange blossom hydrosol for oily skin.

Known as "Neroli," the orange blossom grows on the bitter orange tree, also known as the Seville orange. Its hydrosol is renowned for its numerous benefits for both skin and hair applications. In addition to its gentle fragrance, it regenerates and soothes the skin. In this article, discover its virtues for oily skin, whether or not it has imperfections.

What is orange blossom hydrosol?

This natural compound is derived from the steam distillation of dried flowers from the Bitter Orange tree. Its high content of flavonoids and vitamin C endows it with antioxidant properties that can rejuvenate dull complexions while combating oxidative stress, one of the factors of premature skin aging. For hair, it also has benefits. Indeed, the terpenes it contains (linalool, limonene...) have anti-inflammatory properties. Therefore, orange blossom hydrosol is recommended to soothe irritated scalps prone to itching and/or redness.

Note : Unlike essential oil, orange blossom hydrosol is less concentrated in active species, thus it can be used without contraindications by children and pregnant women.

The orange blossom hydrosol, an ally for oily skin.

This floral water tightens pores, smooths skin texture, and firms the epidermis. Its astringent properties help regulate excessive sebum secretion, a characteristic of oily skin. Moreover, its terpene content soothes redness and irritation, effectively combating post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation that leads to acne scars. Furthermore, orange blossom hydrosol is renowned for its fresh and floral fragrance, which lends a pleasant scent to cosmetic formulas.

It is used in sprays on the body and face, to mattify the skin and combat redness associated with blemishes. It can also be applied to the skin as a lotion in the morning and evening, after the makeup removal and cleansing steps. Finally, you can add a few drops to your usual day or night cream.
