Face mists nourish your skin and can also help address issues such as dehydration and irritation. They should be part of your twice-daily beauty routine but can be used more often if needed. Especially during summer, it’s an invigorating feeling.
You can use face mists to re-hydrate and freshen your makeup, hydrate your hair and scalp, or as a face toner.
Face mists are great because:
1. You can use them as a toner, or spray them to set your makeup, or use them to refresh and moisturize your skin during the day.
2. You can enjoy their cooling and invigorating effect on a hot summer day. Keep them in the fridge for an even cooler effect.
3. They’re perfect for traveling to freshen up and hydrate your skin from the dry air on the airplane.
With a few simple ingredients like green tea, rose water or rose essential oil, lavender essential oil, or apple cider vinegar you can naturally soothe your skin and leave your face feeling refreshed.
Some of the best and safe essential oils to promote healthy, glowing skin and hair include lavender, chamomille and rose.
Acne prone-skin: Acne Green Tea Face Mist
The blend of anti-inflammatory green tea and tea tree oil makes this the ideal face mist for those with oil or acne-prone skin. Tea tree has anti-bacterial and oil-controlling properties; green tea will temper inflammation.
• 1/2 cup of cooled green tea
• 4 drops of tea tree essential oil
Steep the green tea bag in a 1/2 cup of boiled water. Remove the bag after five minutes and let the tea cool down before pouring it into a bottle. Pour it in a bottle and shake it up before spraying it on your face!
Lavender Antibacterial Mist
Lavender is not only a soothing, relaxing scent, but it can also help balance your skin’s natural bacteria and ease inflammation.
• 1/2 cup of distilled water
• 4 drops of lavender essential oil
• 1 tsp witch hazel
• 4-ounce amber glass spray bottle
Place water, lavender oil and witch hazel in your spray bottle. Alternatively, you can use mineral water. Shake it up before each use and spray it on your face and hair!
Lavender Chamomile Jojoba Mist
• 5 drops of lavender essential oil
• 5 drops of chamomile essential oil
• 1 drop of jojoba oil (jojoba oil resembles our skin’s natural sebum and thus it is easily absorbed and works well for all skin types. It is in particular useful for dry or aging skin)
• 1 cup of distilled water (or mineral water)
• 4-ounce amber glass spray bottle
Directions: Add all the ingredients into the amber glass bottle and mix well. Shake well before each use. You can spray it on your face and skin.
Depending on your skin’s needs, face mists can help address issues like:
• pH rebalancing
• Age-related skin conditions
Dry or aging skin: Add 4 – 6 drops of argan, jojoba, olive or avocado oil to your facial mist. Jojoba in particular closely resembles our skin natural’s sebum and works well for all skin types.
Sensitive or dry skin: Add equal parts rosewater to the green tea mist to treat sensitive or dry skin. Rosewater has anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties and can reduce redness and/or irritation.
Oily or acne-prone skin: Add one teaspoon of witch hazel to your green tea mist. As a natural astringent, witch hazel removes the extra oil on the skin surface while it tones and soothes the skin. A few drops of tea tree essential oils are also useful to treat blemishes.
How to use facial mist?
Use your facial spray twice daily as part of your daily beauty routine or as needed, especially during the hot summer days. Each DIY facial spray lasts up to two weeks if you store them in the refrigerator.
Ideally, use amber glass to protect the content against light and sun.
After cleansing your face, spritz your facial mist on your face right before applying serum and moisturizer to help increase absorption.
Avoid contact with eyes. In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water.
You can also use it as a setting spray after putting on your makeup or as a post-workout cleanser.
You can also spray it on your hair, neck, body or pillow for a refresh.
