How to make face mist at home, Easy & cheap DIY
Hellow beauties! I hope you all are doing well! 🙂
I’m back with another DIY! And this time it is on how to make face mist at home! It is very easy and cheap. All the ingredients used are easily available in your kitchen. You wouldn’t have to buy anything extra! This face mist can be used no matter which season it is. It instantly hydrates and refreshes your skin as well as your mood. I have been using the face mist for Oily skin since monsoon. And today I thought of sharing this with my lovely readers here! I have created two face mists one for oily skin and one for dry skin type. If you have normal, combination, sensitive, pimple-prone or mature skin, I’ll tell which one is more suitable for you. So without further ado let’s hop on to create this easy-peasy DIY face mist!
How to make face mist at home using ingredients only from your kitchen
Things you’ll need:-
- Green tea
- Aloe vera gel
- Lemon (for oily skin)
- Honey (for dry skin)
- And of course, an empty spray bottle!
You can use an old empty toner spray bottle. Just make sure that it is clean. I have a spray bottle which is bigger than these two and I am already using it from another DIY. (Don’t ask which DIY right now, I’ll share soon!) So I needed a small spray bottle, an ideal size for face mist. And these can store 30ml content. I had to buy them from Amazon because they weren’t available in my local area. (Yep, I stay in the nowhere region! And Courage is my neighbor!) In case this is the same issue with you then you can get the spray bottle From Here.
Alright, now let’s begin!
Prepare your green tea as you usually do, with hot water and a tea bag. You can use green tea leaves too for this preparation too. Since I had green tea by Girnar already at my place, I use it. (If you want Girnar green tea bags then you can get it From Here.) Allow the green tea to cool down before you move further.
According to your spray bottle’s size transfer the amount into a bowl. The solution should be as such that it fills up to 85-90% of the bottle. In case you created extra, store the rest of the green tea in the fridge for next batch. Now into this bowl, add 1 teaspoon of aloe vera gel. Add 2 teaspoons of aloe vera gel in a 50ml bottle and 3 teaspoons in a 100ml bottle. You can use fresh aloe vera gel from the plant too. But you will need to extract the aloe vera gel from it first. Or you can use ready-made aloe vera gel from a well-known brand. I have used Khadi Natural aloe vera gel. Mix this green tea + aloe vera gel solution well.
Since this is the common step for both the mists, I have added 2 spoons of aloe vera gel. This green tea and aloe vera gel solution will help your skin to stay healthy and youthful!
After mixing, pour this directly into the spray bottle. Now for my usage, I have filled only 80% of the bottle. You can fill 85-90% in your spray bottle. (You don’t have to measure with a scale! I am just showing the size of this bottle and the quantity of the solution used.)
How to make face mist for dry skin
This face mist is ideal for not only dry skin but sensitive, normal and mature skin type as well!
Considering the size of the bottle add 3-5 drops of honey in it. Since mine is 30ml, I added 3 drops of honey in it. For the bottle around 50ml add 5-10 drops of honey. If the bottle is bigger (around 100ml) then add 10-15 drops of honey.
Place the spray cap and shake it well. There it is, face mist for dry skin is ready! This one is used by mum since her skin is dry and mature.
How to make face mist for oily skin
This face mist can not only be used by oily skin but also by combination skin type as well! My skin is oily, also sensitive and acne prone too. So this face mist can be used by a pimple prone skin as well!
Again considering the size of the bottle add 3-5 drops of freshly squeezed lemon juice. Since mine is 30ml, I added 3 drops of lemon juice. For 50ml bottle add 5-10 drops of lemon. If the bottle is bigger (around 100ml) then add 10-15 drops of lemon juice.
Place the spray cap and shake it well. My face mist for oily skin is ready! This is used by me since my skin is oily.
From both the face mists, I can only smell the Khadi aloe vera gel’s fragrance, which is quite refreshing and mild! After spritzing, it dries up quickly so you don’t have to worry about touching your face or wiping off the access.
Green tea Rich in antioxidants has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
Aloe vera gel It is anti-inflammatory and has hydrating property. It instantly soothes and nourishes the skin.
Lemon juice Controls extra facial oil and lightens skin blemishes.
Honey It is antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-aging. It moisturizes the skin and imparts a youthful glow.
Benefits of these face mists
- While spraying it feels cool and refreshing as it instantly hydrates the skin.
- It soothes itchy and irritated skin.
- It is non-sticky and non-oily, and it will help control extra facial oil.
- It will not cause any breakouts and will only make your skin appear glowy, healthy and hydrated.
- It will not leave any shine on your face. Instead, it will control the extra shine.
- It is hydrating and light so it is definitely not greasy!
When can you use?
I have been using the face mist after a bath and other times whenever I wash my face and need to hydrate it. Since monsoon, I have been switching between using the Khadi Natural aloe vera gel or this face mist to hydrate my skin. If you do not know, then I’ll like to share that I experience flaky skin too, which is caused by Retinol usage. And both of these face mists are suitable for the flaky skin as well. So they can be used during any season! And especially during winter you can ditch your astringent/toner and opt for this hydrating facial mist. Face mist can be used during Summer as well as in Monsoon when creamy moisturizers are not suitable. You can even use it when you are out and need an instant skin refreshment!
Make sure that you store this in the fridge and finish using it within 10-15 days. That’s the reason why I use the small bottle. You can use a bottle of any size but only prepare that much which you can finish using within 10-15 days. You can carry this face mist around with you easily, anywhere and anytime!
