DIY Rose Water Facial Mist

With the warm weather finally making its way to the UK shores you may be looking for ways to cool down? Facial mists have quickly become a staple within my beauty kit as they are a quick and effective way to refresh the skin and of course cool down. At home when I have no make-up on and my biggest concern is not scaring the postman, I tend to use a natural DIY Rose Water Facial Mist, remedy to allow my skin to breathe (some facial mists contain make-up setting ingredients amongst other things) and today I thought I'd share my quick and easy method.

You will need:
A spray bottle (I got mine via Boots for £1.39 - link)
Rosehip Facial Oil
Vitamin E Facial Oil (optional)

To say this is an easy approach, is an understatement! I simply boil water, allow to cool and then combine two drops of Rosehip facial oil with one drop of Vitamin E facial oil, shake and use. For the sake of aesthetics I have popped in a few real rose petals but other than look pretty they are all but useless.

It goes without saying that you can create your own fusion mixing and matching facial oils, I have choose Rosehip Oil as it nourishes deeply and can help repair sun and general skin damage, it is also great for rejuvenating and promoting a more even skin tone. As I have acne scarring I have added a little vitamin E oil to encourage my scar tissue to heal. 

I must stress that when using natural essential oils it is important to take a less is more approach, as they are so concentrated some can irritate the skin. If that is a worry, you can always use oils which sole purpose have been intended for the face; for example I use Triology Rosehip Facial Oil as my go to Rosehip oil for everything. I have also mixed a little Clarins Facial Treatment Oils with water in the past. If a more natural approach is what you had in mind hen you can use a carrier oil in conjunction with your chosen essential oils - almond and coconut oil are great choices, they help dilute the oil without compromising the skin care benefits, if anything they add extra moisture.

Do you use or make anything similar?
