The change of any season can definitely affect my sensitive skin. One of my favorite things to keep at my desk or in the car is a DIY hydrating face mist. It’s something I can use to set my makeup and refresh my skin throughout the day.
Why I chose the special ingredients in this mist….
Lavender Essential Oil: Safe, soothing and nourishing to even sensitive skin. One of the main components of lavender is called “linalol.”A great deal of research has been done on linalol’s ability to help revive, calm, ease, and even to relax.
Argan Oil: Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Frankincense Essential Oil: Protects skin, is a powerful anti-aging oil and reduces the appearance of large pores. (One of my problem areas! Can you relate?)
Green Tea: Anti-inflammatory and antibacterial- nuff said! The antioxidants in green tea, known as catechins, are especially potent for anti-aging and encourage cell turnover and to reactivate dying skin cells (source)! While these benefits are limited to the outer layer of skin (as the tea’s properties aren’t absorbed beyond that), the research suggests that these benefits are significant.
Geranium Essential Oil: Improves circulation and tightens skin, which reduced the appearance of wrinkles.
DIY Hydrating Face Mist Recipe
- 8 ounces purified or distilled water
- 1 organic green tea bag (optional)
- 1 tsp argan oil (like this)
- 4 drops lavender essential oil
- 2 drops geranium essential oil
- 1 drop frankincense essential oil
- Small glass spray bottle (like this)
- Boil water, steep tea bag, and allow to cool.
- Pour into bottle about 4/5 of the way or ‘shoulder height’ full.
- Carefully add Argan oil, followed by other oils.
- Mix, shake well, and mist away.
Note: I like a strong scent so I tend to add 2+ drops of each oil to the recipe above.
Too busy to make your own DIY mist? I use this plumping mist from Beautycounter most days to set my makeup and refresh my face throughout the day.
