Since I seem to be on the topic on skincare with yesterdays Nivea Creme post, today I will be sharing how you can DIY some face mists for your skin. Call them whatever you like toners, fresheners, sprays, anything you like but they work really well for us sensitive people.
I am not talking about any store bought products because they almost always react very badly to my hypersensitive skin. So I like to do it myself. They are so easy to whip up and so refreshing that I am sure your skin will thank you for it. So if you don’t have a spray bottle then I would highly recommend that you buy one. They are not very expensive at all. I got a cute one from Dorabjee’s in Pune for 60 Rupees and it really one of the best things I’ve bought.
I usually store my face mist in the fridge, I love spraying it on my face just after cleansing and before putting on my Nivea Creme. So here’s how to do my three DIY facial mists.
- Just plain, cold, boiled and filtered water. It’s the most basic one for the most sensitive skin. If you’re having a big showdown with allergies and redness and rashes, sometimes good old plain water is just what you need. Right now my skin feels more sensitive than usual, so this is what I using. Keep it in the fridge.
- Brew some strong unflavoured green tea and you’ve got another toner. Wait till it cools to use it and store it in he fridge. But use it up within two days and make a fresh batch. It’s great for oily, acne-prone skin, rashes and spots. A great excuse to drink green tea everyday and save a little for your skin. What do you think?
- Chamomile tea bags. Do it just like the green tea mist, just make sure it’s 100% chamomile with nothing added and is unflavoured as well. This is probably the most soothing of them all and just like the green tea you can drink it as well. It’s caffeine free for those who are sensitive to caffeine.
These face mists have really been so handy especially when my skin acts up every so often. All the ingredients are easily available and get some organic tea bags if you can, just to be safer.
So easy right!!
