    Default Freshness in face

    Is it right?
    She still had the freshness in her house.
    What other words can I use instead of "freshness"?

    She still had the freshness in her house.

    As it stands this sentence is a little ambiguous, only your title tells us for sure that it's her face, not the house, that has a freshness.
    If you mean that whether she was inside or outside, her face had a healthy glow or bloom, as it's sometimes called, then I think "freshness" is a good term.
    Perhaps: "Even inside the house, her face had a freshness to it." or " had a healthy glow".
    Or, "She had a fresh complexion, even inside her house".

    not a teacher

    Thanks a lot.
    That's funny.
    I really don't know how I wrote "house" instead of "face"

    I'd probably say "She was still fresh-faced"
