When it comes to the summer heat, facial mists are lifesavers. You will feel instant refreshment with just a couple of spritzes. Plus, they will give your skin an instant boost of hydration. And the good news is that you don’t have to spend tons of money on this instant pleasure. With a minimal amount of ingredients, you can actually make a homemade facial spray that's customized to fit your needs.
Follow these simple steps and make your favorite face mist for this summer:
Step #1: Take a bottle
You'll need a bottle made of glass or aluminum because they work very well. Travel-sized spray bottles are also good. Either way, make sure that the bottle is properly cleaned and sterilized.
Step #2: Make some tea
Tea is a great base for any facial mist because it's packed with natural antioxidants that can help soothe and protect the skin from free radicals. There are a wide variety of herbal teas available for DIY facial mists. Put the tea bag in distilled hot water and then cool it down to room temperature.
Step #3: Add in some ingredients
You can customize the facial mist by adding special ingredients, such as extracts and essential oils. For example, you can add a few drops of vitamin E or jojoba oil. Those with sensitive skin can add rosewater to help soothe the redness. You can also mix ingredients like witch hazel, aloe vera juice or cucumber juice for a refreshing facial mist.
And that’s it, now you have your own facial mist. But, don’t be afraid to mix and match all of these ingredients or add some more, to make a unique facial mist that will work for your skin type.
