How to Make Your Own Soothing and Hydrating Face Mist

Hello Gals!

Today, I want to share with you my DIY soothing and hydrating face mist recipe. This recipe has recently become a staple in my skin care routine as the winter season has transformed my skin from moderately dry to very dry and sensitive. 


How to make your own face mist




I find that hydrating facial mists when used with along with skin care geared towards hydration is a great way to help combat the dry/sensitive effects caused by the winter season.
This recipe consists of calming and hydrating ingredients that will keep your skin feeling moisturized and soothed throughout the day.

  
You will need: 
  • 1 Chamomile tea bag
  • 2 drops lavender essential oil
  • 2 drops vanilla essential oil
  • 2 drops sweet almond oil
  • distilled water

Method:

Steep chamomile tea bag in hot water for 5-10 minutes, then let cool. Once cooled, pour into a spritz bottle to 3/4 of the way full and add the lavender, vanilla and sweet almond oils. Lastly, fill the rest of the bottle with distilled water, screw on the lid and gently shake.

Keep refrigerated and toss after 2 weeks. 

Ways to Use Your Facial Mist

For Hydration:
 
  • After cleansing before applying your moisturizer, spritz your face to hydrate and increase absorption. 
  • Mist your face a couple of times throughout the day to keep your skin hydrated.
  • Spritz your face often while traveling (especially on long flights) to avoid dehydration while flying.  

 For makeup:

  • Spritz after applying your makeup to soften your look.
  • Use as a midday pick me up to revive makeup and to refresh the skin.



The benefits of creating your own face mist is not only can you control what  goes into your mist, you can also customize it to your own specific needs, by using ingredients that are most beneficial to your skin type eg. if your skin is oily and prone to breakouts, replace the chamomile tea with green tea. Green tea is loaded with anti-oxidants and works well with problematic skin. 

Thanks for reading!

  8. I love things like this because you know exactly what you are putting on your skin. There are so many weird ingredients in products which makes D.I.Y.'s like this a life saver. Love this post and I'm definitely going to give this a try.
