Facial mists just like other skin care products are quite important in a skin care routine even if this particular step is underrated! Facial mists can be used throughout the day to hydrate and nourish skin and can also be used after masking or cleansing before applying a moisturizer. If you have acne prone skin, it is a good idea to use a face mist with anti-acne benefits throughout the day to keep skin clear. Looking out for a natural recipe? Below is one-
Aloe vera gel- Has great hydrating and moisturizing properties. Is anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory in nature that helps keep skin clean and clear. Aloe vera gel unclogs pores and keeps whiteheads and blackheads away. Also prevents comedones and future acne.
Green tea- Green tea has amazing skin detoxing properties that keeps pores clean and clear. Cleaner pores do not progress to whiteheads, comedones, blackheads or acne. Green tea also has great refreshing and rejuvenating properties and is great for oily skin.
