Homemade Refreshing Cucumber Aloe Mist for Face and Body

The word “refresh” has such a good sound to it. It makes me think of leaping into a cool pool on the hottest of summer days. This face & body mist brings about that same feeling – and it has major benefits for your skin. The rosewater helps reduce any redness and swelling of the skin, while also acting as an astringent. The cucumber soothes and softens your skin, and also provides a cooling effect. The lemon acts as a natural exfoliator, leaving your skin smooth and soft. The aloe soothes your skin, promotes blood circulation, and improves your skin’s elasticity. Here’s how to make this refreshing cucumber aloe mist.

What you need:
1 cucumber
1 squeeze of lemon
1 teaspoon aloe vera gel
1 tablespoon rosewater (you can buy at a health food store or learn how to make rosewater!)

You’ll also need a blender, a cheese cloth, a small bowl, and a spray bottle to store your mixture.

What you do:
Peel your cucumber and cut it up into little pieces. Place the pieces in a blender and blend on high for about 1 minute.

Cover a small bowl with a cheese cloth and strain the juice into the bowl. I didn’t have a cheese cloth, so I used a napkin and squeezed the juice through using a tight grip.

Add the rest of the ingredients into the bowl and mix. I actually put everything back in the blender just to make sure the aloe was thoroughly mixed. Transfer your mixture into a spray bottle and mist away! You can add some distilled water if you want to dilute the mixture a bit. Store this in your fridge so that it doesn’t spoil. It should last about a week.
