DIY: Green Tea Facial Mist
Few things are more useful during the summer months than a great facial mist. While having a good one is an absolute necessity to keep skin cool and calm, mists can often be rather pricey. Luckily, Indie Lee, beauty expert and founder of her eponymous company, created an incredibly simple DIY green tea facial mist recipe so that you can spritz all day long without worrying about your wallet (side note: her rosehip cleanser is amazing.) Keep reading for her foolproof formula.
What You’ll Need:
1 bag of Jasmine Green Tea (Indie instructs that you should pick an organic option with no artificial ingredients)
½ cup mineral water
Sweet Orange Essential Oil
4 ounce spray bottle
Benefits of the Ingredients:
Green Tea – Packed full of antioxidants to ward off environmental stressors.
Jasmine – Antibiotic and anti-inflammatory properties to clean, even, and soothe skin.
Sweet Orange Oil – Brightens while warding off wrinkles and boosting collagen production.
1. Steep jasmine green tea in mineral water for twenty minutes. Let cool slightly.
2. Transfer tea into spray bottle.
3. Add three drops of sweet orange essential oil into the bottle and place in refrigerator to cool.
4. Wait at least one hour before misting onto face.
Store your mist in the fridge for optimal refreshing; it will last up to three weeks.
TIP: While mists are crucial to survive the dog days of summer, this recipe will work well into fall to help balance your skin during transitional weather.
