DIY face mists

DIY face mists

My skincare routine changes throughout the year depending on its need. One thing I try to be regular about is a facial mist or toner. There are a lot of different ones out there based on what your personal need is. Sometimes, you just need something that is quick and pretty inexpensive.

If you are looking to make your own mist, here are 3 quick and easy ones to try out. 


lemon juice & witch hazel:

  • In an 8 oz spray bottle, add the juice of 1 lemon. Fill the rest with witch hazel.

  • Lemon juice can be very drying and harsh on sensitive skin. If your skin can tolerate it, add as much as you'd like.


apple cider vinegar & water:

  • Fill an 8 oz spray bottle with equal parts apple cider vinegar and distilled water.

  • It's important to use organic apple cider vinegar (with the "mother"), as it contains the properties necessary to benefit your skin. It's super easy and awesome for acne prone skin.


diy rosewater:

  • Add organic rose petals to a pot with just enough distilled water to cover them.

  • Let them simmer until the petals lose their color.

  • Let cool, and then pour into your spray bottle.

  • For extra hydration, fill 1/4 of the bottle with organic coconut oil and the rest with rosewater.

  • Store any extra rosewater in a glass container in your fridge until ready to use.



Remember to always do a patch test on your skin before trying anything new.
