aloe facial mistFacial mists are so popular right now, for good reason. The convenience of a refreshing mist that holds so many benefits is really irresistible.  The only downside is the cost. A little bottle can run you upwards of fifty dollars. If you love to spray as much as I do, things can start to get downright pricey. I decided to create my own aloe facial mist that is not only simple to make but very cost effective as well.  I am head over heels about this apothecary recipe! It serves as a cleanser, moisturizer, astringent, and skin soother in one. I spray it on first thing in the morning and after shaving as well. This aloe facial mist is the right stuff for those HOT summer days. You know the ones… You’re soaked in sweat or sunscreen or bug spray or an unlucky combo of all three and feeling gross. Spray away, my friend. There is genuine happiness in this little bottle of mist. While you’re at it spray your kiddos too if they’re around. It will cool them off and alleviate any skin maladies they may be suffering from.

the perfect summertime treat for your skin

I keep my aloe facial mist in the fridge (you should too). The added benefit is that it feels so cool and refreshing when you spray it on your skin on a hot summer day. The rose water smells so light and sweet when you’re a sweaty mess with no time to shower. I have taken this aloe facial mist with me to the pool and on a recent road trip in a small cooler bag with an ice pack. It travels really well.  This aloe facial mist is the perfect way to lightly moisturize your skin after a shower in humid conditions. It might be a small investment at first to acquire all of the necessary ingredients to make this, but well worth it. You will get about a dozen recipes or more of this aloe facial mist from them.  Not to mention all of these items are beneficial on their own as well. They really should be in everyone’s pantry or fridge as a natural remedy.
