Three Homemade Skin Spritz Recipes – Refresh Your Skin

Skin spritz – oh how we love thee on a hot summer’s day. That said, we’re pretty sure we’re spending a little too much on novelty products in our local Boots this year – so we’ve decided the time is now to create our own, Pinterest-worthy skin mists, packed full of our favourite cooling ingredients. Here we go…

All is Rosy – Rose Water and Sandalwood Spritz

You need:

  • 225g pack of rose petals
  • 500ml cups boiling water
  • 5 to 10 drops sandalwood essential oil

Put your fragrant rose petals into a pan and pour over the boiling water, then cover and let the rose petals rest in the water until it has cooled completely. Add the drops of sandalwood, add to a cheap plastic spray bottle and place into the fridge. You’re done!

Rose water is wonderful for summer because it is so refreshing and hydrating, plus it contains lots of antibacterial properties and balances the skins pH. Sandalwood is a soothing oil, so combined with the rose water, it delivers a calm, glowing complexion.

Hello Aloe – Soothing & Hydrating Skin Spritz

You need:

  • 3 tbsp. of organic aloe
  • Juice of ½ medium lime
  • 125ml distilled water

Mix all ingredients in a bowl and add to a spray bottle, then store in the fridge. We’re told by the experts that aloe is particularly good for the skin as it soothes and hydrates. The lime is packed with vitamin C which will fight off those nasty free radicals.

Cool as a Cucumber – Cucumber Infused Mist

What you need:

  • 1 medium cucumber, chopped
  • 1/2 medium lemon
  • 1 organic mint tea bag
  • 1/2 cup distilled water

Take out any pent up frustration and mash your cucumber in a bowl. Then put the ‘mash’ into cheesecloth and squeeze as much juice out as you can – remember this is the juice you need to keep! Add the lemon juice to your cucumber water and set aside.  Soak your cheesecloth cucumber teabag in hot water for approximately 5 minutes (or use fresh mint leaves in hot water instead of the tea bag). After soaking, wait for the tea to cool, add the cucumber-lemon juice, and store in a spray bottle in the refrigerator.

This spritz is great for acne-prone skin, especially because cucumber targets oily skin, combats dark spots and the lemon juice contains natural bleaching properties. Mint helps clear blemishes and has lots of anti inflammatory properties. Go wild!
