  • Refreshing Homemade Cucumber Aloe Face Mist

    This face & body mist brings is amazingly refreshing on a hot summer day – and it has major benefits for your skin. The rose water helps reduce any redness and swelling of the skin, while also acting as an astringent. The cucumber soothes and softens your skin, and also provides a cooling effect. The lemon acts as a natural exfoliator, leaving your skin smooth and soft. The aloe soothes your skin, promotes blood circulation, and improves your skin’s elasticity. Here’s how to make this refreshing cucumber aloe mist.

    What you need:
    1 cucumber
    1 squeeze of lemon
    1 teaspoon aloe vera gel (can be purchased at your local health food store)
    1 tablespoon rosewater (can be purchased at your local health food store)Homemade-cucumber-aloe-face-mist

    You’ll also need a blender, a cheese cloth, a small bowl, and a spray bottle to store your mixture.

    What you do:
    Peel your cucumber and cut it up into little pieces. Place the pieces in a blender and blend on high for about 1 minute.

    Cover a small bowl with a cheese cloth and strain the juice into the bowl.

    Add the rest of the ingredients into the bowl and mix.

    Transfer your mixture into a spray bottle and mist away! You can add some distilled water if you want to dilute the mixture a bit. Store this in your fridge so that it doesn’t spoil. It should last about a week.
