DIY Face Mist
Face Mists are great, especially around summer time. As much as I love facial mists, I think they’re a bit over-rated and over-priced. You essentially pay a pretty penny for distilled water in spray bottle. Of course there’re different kinds of face mists, hydrating, antibacterial, brightening, anti-acne and the list goes on. There’re not many face mists that’re actually worth the price tag. I haven’t bought a facial mist in years. I make my own, and not only it’s super easy and inexpensive but also it works. In this blog post I’m sharing 2 of my most favorite and super easy DIY face mists. That I have been using for years.
DIY Face Mist #1
This DIY face mist is great for all skin types. It will hydrate and rejuvenate the skin. It heals any inflammation, sun-damage, and acne-damage. Green tea has anti-aging properties which helps in keeping your skin youthful for longer. Green tea has antioxidants, which not only fights premature wrinkles but avoids your foundation to oxidize. It keeps your makeup looking fresh and dewy. It literally takes less than a minute to make this mist. I love green tea, I fill up the cosmetic spray bottle with distilled water, and before I start sipping my green tea, I add few spoonfuls of tea, about 1/3 of the bottle. I do not recommend using tap water, always use distilled water to make any face mist.
DIY Face Mist # 2
This DIY face mist is my biggest skin care secret. A lot of people ask me what I do to avoid acne. And I always tell them the magic is in the tea-tree oil. The smell of tea-tree oil is STRONG ! but I honestly don’t mind it, and it evaporates anyway. Tea-tree oil is a very strong oil, natural doesn’t always mean harmless. This antibacterial oil is STRONG, and for external use only. Keep out of children’s reach and use it carefully. I add about 5-7 drops of tea-tree oil in the spray bottle with distilled water. And use it every night. I cover my eyes and spray it over my face. Plus I also like to spray it on my bed-sheet where I put my face, because I don’t use a pillow(lol). I know that sounds funny but oh well that’s what I do. No one changes bed-sheets every single day. Ain’t nobody got time for that, but a lot of times we don’t realize that the bacteria built-up in the sheets, mattress and pillow cause acne. This face mist is great for people with combination to oily skin, but if you have dry skin and you wanna benefit from tea-it, add few drops of almond or coconut oil in the mix. Tea-tree oil is very drying, you definitely don’t wanna over use it. I have been using this face mist from as long as I can remember, even before I got married, so that definitely makes more than 6 years and still love it just as much.
I like to keep it simple; I don’t like to make different concoctions, just because it’s all natural doesn’t mean it doesn’t have any chemical reactions, so before adding a bunch of stuff, do some research and even then it’s not a sure thing. So, keep it simple. These are my most favorite DIY face mists.
