When my skin is tight

When my skin is tight

My testimony

When I walk in winter, when it's cold and the wind is blowing, I come home with tightness in the skin on my face. However, I don't have sensitive skin, just a little reactive, especially to changes in temperature. I don’t use “aggressive” creams or lotions that could irritate it. Only the very hard water in our area should help to dry it out. When the cold wind adds (or removes…) a layer, it becomes uncomfortable. So it’s time for me to give it a little sweetness with hydrosols!

My tip

When my skin feels tight, my reflex is orange blossom. After being in the shower, I use a washable makeup remover pad to apply orange blossom hydrosol to my face, morning and evening. I do it after showering because our water is very hard, and I don't want to have that feeling of dry skin.
If I still have this feeling of tightness after a few days, or simply for the pleasure of the benefit that follows, I prepare a facial mask with honey. To do this, I pour a tablespoon of liquid honey into a bowl (prefer organic honey from a local producer if you can). I add a tablespoon of orange blossom hydrosol and 2 pinches of superfine white or pink clay. I mix and soak makeup remover squares with this preparation before applying them to my face while I am lying down. I leave it to “act” for around twenty minutes before rinsing with lukewarm water. This mask works miracles on uncomfortable, tight skin.
