Cypress is calming and soothing to irritated skin. It is a natural antiseptic, which makes it an excellent acne fighter. Cypress has a diuretic effect on the skin, and can help to treat varicose veins. As it has a natural evergreen scent, it is great for gentlemen seeking a hydrosol that is less flowery. As a styptic, cypress hydrosol can also be used to help stop the bleeding of cuts on the face from shaving. Great for any skin type, especially acne prone. Avoid during the first trimester of pregnancy, and if you have kidney issues.
