Because of its smell, it is advisable to apply it only in the evening before going to bed and during the days when you do not use a mask.
Lavender and witch hazel waters:

The characteristics of jojoba oil are very similar to those of sebum. It will therefore trick the skin into creating less fat. Light, it is suitable for all skin types, it nourishes and moisturizes. Mixed with a few drops of lavender essential oil, it becomes anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and heals skin imperfections.

After cleansing and toning, pour 4 to 6 drops on the hand and apply to the face. Wait 30 minutes before applying your make-up. It is advisable to use less moisturizer in the morning to avoid having too much oil under your make-up.
