Interesting Ingredient: Cornflower Water

FYI, cornflower isn't just a soft but stunning shade of blue. Floral water extracted from the petals of this perennial contains several helpful, healing medicinal properties for your skin.

IF YOUR PROBLEM IS... Red, irritated skin, itchy, puffy eyes and/or deep, dark circles.

THEN HERE'S YOUR SOLUTION... Alleviate an inflamed, reddened dermis by liberally spritzing cornflower floral water all over your skin. Not only does it hydrate and soothe the skin while smoothing over fine lines and toning your complexion, this particular extract is also an anti-inflammatory that helps deflate delicate swollen eyes. (Gently massaging puffed up peepers with a cotton pad moistened with cornflower water helps release fluid that's accumulated underneath the lower lash line.)

Sold? Good. These three are our favorites: Florame Organic Cornflower Floral Water ($31), Caswell-Massey Cornflower Water Eau de Bleuet ($20) or Melvita Eau Florale de Bleuet ($23). (Whichever one you choose, be sure to keep it cool—therefore refreshing—by storing it in your refrigerator.)
