Homemade hydrating face mist is a simple, natural alternative to store-bought creams and mists designed to nourish and hydrate the skin. Homemade face mist uses ingredients that can be purchased at almost any health food store or online through a specialty retailer. Making your skin care products can also save you quite a bit of money over buying expensive commercial products that often contain unnatural and potentially harmful additives and preservatives. Store the hydrating face mist in the refrigerator between uses for maximum shelf-life.
Combine the distilled water, orange flower water and rose flower water in a small saucepan. Heat over low heat for about 2 to 3 minutes or until warm.
Remove the saucepan from heat and add the aloe vera gel. Stir to combine with a wooden spoon or disposable stir stick.
Transfer the hydrating face mist to a sterilized glass bottle with spray pump.
Store the face mist in the refrigerator for 24 hours before first use. Shake gently before first use and all subsequent uses.
