I recently started using a hydrosol instead of a toner on my face after washing it. I picked up the Evan Healy Immortelle Hydrosol because I knew that it was a good quality and clean product.
So what is a hydrosol? It is known as “flower waters,” are produced by distilling fresh leaves, fruits, flowers, and other plant materials (Mountain Rose Herbs). Often it replaces a toner in your routine. Traditional toners have a lot of chemicals and alcohol which can be very drying to the skin. Instead you want to use something that is nourishing and helps prep your skin for the oils and moisturizer you are going to be using.
I started using the Evan Healy Hyrdosol Immortelle a few months ago and have completely fallen in love with it. I have noticed that my skin feels softer and more hydrated after using it. There are several different varieties in the Evan Healy Hydrosol line but so far Immortelle has been the only one I have tried. I chose the Immortelle because –
Immortelle is covered in bright yellow, daisy-like flowers that retain their color and shape, therefore it’s also known as ‘Everlasting’. Immortelle’s botanical name is Helichrysum italicum, which comes from the Greek word helios (sun) and chyrsos (gold) because the yellow blooms look like tiny golden suns. Immortelle grows wild in the south of France, Italy and other Mediterranean countries. – Evan Healy
For my nightly routine I usually start with removing my makeup with coconut oil followed up by a cleansing of my skin with a face wash. After lightly patting my skin dry I spray about 5 sprints to my face and let dry while I am brushing my teeth. This allows for the hydrosol to really penetrate the skin and start to work.
I really feel that this has been a game changer in my nightly routine and can’t wait to try out the other additions that this line has to offer. Check out my review of the Crunchi Foundation and why you don’t have to give up performance with clean organic beauty.
Have you ever tried any of the Evan Healy hydrosol’s or anything else for from the line?
