Natural Facial Mists: Summertime Skin Refreshers

Perk up your complexion and boost your spirits with a refreshing toner or facial mist.

As we prepare to ready our beach, pool and vacation bags for summer months it may be fun to add a few new items.  How about a little something to refresh the skin?

Do you ever feel sticky or in need of a freshen-up midday in warm weather?  Natural toners and facial mists are perfect for perking up the skin and reviving the senses. Organic ingredients and natural essential oils sooth, protect and revitalize skin.

Here are a few of my summertime facial mist favorites:

You notice that lavender keeps turning up in these toners and sprays.  Lavender not only smells lovely, it has relaxation and de-stressing properties.  Who can’t use that?

Want to try making your own facial mist?

Here’s my recipe: Steep yourself a cup of green tea and, once cooled, add a couple of drops of lavender essential oil.  Pour into a spray bottle and store in the fridge.  Keeps up to two weeks.  I like to spray on my face, arms and décolleté.
