Cucumber-Aloe Hydrating Mist

Aloe and cucumber are the star players here. Cucumber is naturally high in water, as well as vitamins and minerals. The aloe vera is a super soother, which has an impressive ability to ease irritation, redness, and inflammation.

Ingredients

  • 1 small cucumber
  • 1/3 cup of distilled water
  • 1 tsp. of aloe vera
  • 1 tsp. witch hazel (can opt out if you are sensitive to astringent ingredients)
  • 4-ounce glass spray bottle

Directions

Peel and cut your cucumber (dice it or toss into a food processor). If using a processor, strain through a cheesecloth to extract the cucumber essence and to keep your mist light. I like to include some of the diced pieces in the mix either way. Pour into your spray bottle along with the water, aloe vera, witch hazel and shake it up! Mist as necessary!

Rose Soothing Healthy-aging Mist

Rose has several skin-healthy benefits, including hydration, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antioxidant properties. From there, the blend also includes vitamin E oil, which is a potent antioxidant that fights free radical damage, stabilizes collagen, and so much more.
