it even better over your skin. Then, while your skin is still slightly damp, apply moisturizer to lock everything in. Facial mist can especially come in handy when you’re traveling (you know how drying the airplane air can be), in your office (where air conditioning is sucking the life out of your skin) or at any time during the day, when you think your skin might use some refreshment. And of course, use it regularly as a part of your morning and nighttime beauty routine. Apart from water, the following recipes contain balanced mixtures of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and anti- oxidants your skin needs on a daily basis. Refreshing Facial Mist 2 spoons fresh cucumber juice 4 spoons mineral water 2 spoons orange blossom water 1 teaspoon Aloe Vera Gel 3 – 4 drops vitamin E oil ½ teaspoon olive oil Grate a piece of cucumber and strain it through a clean gauze. Mix 2 spoons of the juice with mineral water, orange blossom water, and Aloe Vera gel. Pour the mixture into a spray bottle. In the end, add the oils. Shake the bottle well before each use and in the meantime keep it in the refrigerator. Deep Hydrating Facial Mist ½ cup coconut water 1/3 cup rose water 1 tablespoon of witch hazel 3 drops of lavender essential oil Pour coconut water and rose water in a spray bottle. Add witch hazel and lavender essential oil and shake well. Use on a clean face at least once a day. White Tea Facial Mist 1/2 cup white tea ½ - 1 tablespoon fresh tangerine juice 10 drops jojoba oil Make the tea. Use 1 bag of white tea for a ½ cup of water. Wait until it cools down completely, then pour it into a spray bottle. Add freshly squeezed tangerine juice and jojoba oil. As with other mists, keep it in the refrigerator and use as often as you can. DOZ Magazine February 2018 27 «
