5 Reasons you should be using orange flower water

By  |  0 Comments

I first stumbled upon the concept of adding tonic water to my skincare and hair care routine when I read a quote by Bond girl, Bernice Marlhoe, who has the most amazing skin:

“The first steps is always to clean my skin, this is the most important part. And then I use a hydrating water or tonic, and finish with lots of moisturizer.”

I began researching the benefits of using a tonic water versus tap water for skin and hair.

The results of my research were astounding. I can’t live without this stuff! Now my favorite tonic water is orange flower water.
