DIY Replenishing Green Tea Facial Mist

It is no secret that green tea is amazing for your skin. The antioxidants, especially the catechins, protect your precious skin cells against free radical damage. They are nature's anti-aging compounds. Study after study has found that the antioxidants are photoprotective, which means they can prevent skin aging, as well as skin cancers caused by sun exposure. 

Sure, drinking green tea is a super good idea for your health, but applying it topically also can have a positive effect on your skin. One of my natural skin care tricks is to spritz my skin with a facial mist throughout the day. My green tea facial mist is great in the winter when I want to keep my skin both hydrated and protected. Even though the sun's rays are not as potent in the winter, they can still damage your skin. Keep your skin protected with a UVA/UVB sunscreen when you go outside and douse your skin with cell protecting antioxidants when you are inside. 

To make this green tea facial mist, you will need:

  • room temperature green tea
  • liquid vegetable glycerin (you can get this from Mountain Rose Herbs)
  • 3 drops rose essential oil
  • 2 capsules flax seed oil

I use a small two-ounce spray bottle. Add equal parts of the green tea and the glycerin, a great hydrating ingredient. Prick your flax seed oil and squeeze the oil into your mist ingredients. Add the rose oil and shake.

Mist over clean skin to replenish and revive your skin, to prevent dryness, and to give yourself an anti-aging, anti-wrinkle treat. You can mist as much as you want, I usually do it five or six times during the day when I am home - after showering, in the middle of the day a couple times, and at night before putting on my night cream.
