DIY Green Tea Face Mist

DIY green tea facial spray, face mist Is it just us or has skincare gotten a little bit insane as of late? Back in the day you'd find our skincare regimens were comprised of face wash, moisturizer and a little Lip Smackers if we were feeling real saucy---but today, it seems that everyone and their mom has a minimum three step system. Blame it on Gigi's signature lit-from-within glow or Korean skincare making its way out west, but you can't read a celeb interview without mention of some complicated combo of serums, toners and essences. Though it's definitely a lot to take in, we're thinking this is one beauty trend that's worth adopting. After all, our skin is an organ (the largest organ, if we're being particular) and anything we can do to keep it healthy is probably a good idea. In addition to the very obvious steps you can take to look after your skin like drinking water, slathering on the SPF and getting enough sleep, we've found that incorporating a simple facial mist can make a huge difference as well. Don't worry; this isn't another high price tag item to add to your routine. This DIY green tea facial spray can be made at home, mostly from ingredients you're likely to already have lying around. DIY Green Tea Facial Spray, Face Mist What You'll Need: Green tea bags, filtered water, vitamin E oil, an essential oil of your choice (we chose orange oil for its refreshing qualities), and an empty spray bottle Directions: Brew a cup of green tea---steep the tea bag for five minutes, then remove. Allow tea to cool. Carefully pour green tea into empty spray bottle, leaving about an inch or two of room at the top, and add one tablespoon of vitamin E oil and 10 drops of essential oil. Shake and spray as needed. Store in refrigerator for up to 10 days. DIY Green Tea Facial Spray, Face Mist What we love most about this facial spray (aside from the fact that it's incredibly easy and cheap to make) is that it's uncomplicated to apply. Spritz your face, neck and décolletage as needed throughout the day. The antioxidants in the green tea will help combat any puffiness and reduce inflammation, while vitamin E oil provides a soothing, moisturizing element. Of course, depending on the essential oil you choose, you'll get a different effect; but in this case, orange oil provides an energizing element which makes it perfect to use first thing in the morning. This spray is also great for adding a subtle dewiness after applying makeup, as an afternoon pick-me-up and to refresh makeup at the end of the day before heading to dinner. greenteafacialmist3
