Yes, spring is really coming. A time of rebirth. Let’s wake up that tired winter skin with an invigorating yet calming spring facial mist.
Carry it with you all day long and give yourself a little spritz whenever you need a little pick-me-up. This stuff is pure gold.
Tea of your choice
Essential oil of your choice
Vitamin E oil (or replacement, listed below)
You can use any kind of tea your heart desires. I chose green tea, which is full of antioxidants to fight acne and keep skin looking young. Chamomile is wonderful if you’re looking to reduce inflammation and under-eye circles.
Choose whichever essential oils you desire, as well. I used the always romantic jasmine because it’s my favorite — some other great options are ylang-ylang for its uplifting properties, vanilla for stress-relief, and rose to help reverse negative emotions.
You can also switch out the vitamin E oil for jojoba, sweet almond, or rose hip oil.
1. First, brew a cup of tea. Steep for 5-10 minutes, then allow to cool.
2. Fill an atomizer bottle a little over 3/4 of the way. Add in a few drops of essential oil, and top off with vitamin E (or a replacement).
3. Screw on the top, shake well, and spritz away! This mixture should stay good for about 2-3 weeks if stored in the refrigerator.
