DIY: Cooling Cucumber and Luscious Lime Facial Mist


Have you ever wanted to make a quick no mess facial spray at home? If you didn't know what to use or do, then this post will help guide you through step-by-step, ensuring you produce a high quality, high performance skincare staple!

Keep reading for my best tried and tested tips and tricks...

The importance
It is important to keep your skin hydrated at all times and one great way of helping it is by boosting your skins moisture levels with a mist. Not only are facial sprays great for giving your skin some extra TLC, but also for refreshing your make-up after a long day.
This cucumber and lime mist will be sure to make you look and feel like a pretty princess in no time!
Top tip: For an extra cooling sensation and a wonderful burst of freshness, store your fabulous face mist in your fridge. However ladies, remember to use it within one week.

Ingredients and products you will need
1/2 cucumber
1/2 fresh lime
2 tablespoons of rose water
2 tablespoon of lemon juice
1 teaspoon of aloe vera
1 cup of hot water
1 jar or bowl
1 spray bottle

Instructions
Firstly begin by cutting half a cucumber into several small pieces and then cut two to three peels of a fresh lime. Then place your ingredients into a jar or bowl and fill the rest of the container with boiling hot water, then allow your recipe to cool overnight. The following morning strain your concoction and extract the highly potent water. Next add in a few drops of lemon juice, rose water and aloe vera. Once together, mix your zesty contents to help them blend and bind. Finally pour your homemade facial mist into a handy spray bottle and shake vigorously.
Top tip: If you would like to change up your skincare routine, make a facial spray with pure rose water, which is great for people with sensitive skin.

Application
For a perky clear complexion spritz your revitalising facial mist whenever your skin needs a quick zap of moisture and freshness. Alternatively, if you run out of your regular skincare toner, you can also use this mixture as a replacement.
Top tip: If you are wearing a lot of eye make-up, simply cover your peepers and spritz liberally over the rest of your face and neck. Also remember to carry it with you during the summer months, as it will not only be a fantastic pick-me-up, but it will help give your face a natural glow.

Lastly, if you are a fan of facial mists like me, then you will love this DIY cucumber and lime recipe. It can not only help reduce redness and swelling, but it can also promote blood circulation and improve your skins overall firmness and elasticity.

I really hope you enjoy this relaxing cooling mist.
