Get Glowing, Dewy Skin Instantly With This DIY Rosewater Facial Mist

September 16th, 2016

There’s nothing better than a product that can serve multiple purposes in your makeup routine. That’s exactly why beauty insiders adore facial mists—and explains why the most coveted ones come with a steep price tag.

Makeup artists sing the praises of hydrating botanical sprays for prepping skin: spritzed on under makeup (before moisturizer), they help prime your complexion and keep it looking and feeling fresher all day. And as a midday pick-me-up, there’s nothing better: a quick spray refreshes skin without disturbing your foundation or other handiwork, leaving behind only a dewy glow.

Save a few bucks by making your own DIY facial mist from four all-natural ingredients. Rosewater not only smells amazing, but it may also help reduce inflammation and brighten the complexion. Combine that with healing aloe vera and ultra-hydrating vegetable glycerin, and you’ve got a seriously soothing yet invigorating combo. A few drops of geranium oil only enhances the floral aroma.

Even better, this recipe comes together in minutes—watch the video to see for yourself.
