Diy green tea facial mist

When I was younger, I used to avoid going outside during the summer. When I did, I slathered on layers of sunscreen, but the powerful summer sun still made me feel like my face was going to melt! However, I hated missing out on fun outdoor adventures with my friends and family.

As a result, I started making my own facial mist. Not only is it super good for your skin, but just one spritz will cool you down right away. It’s also really easy and cheap to make – score!

Read on to learn how you can make your own green tea facial mist:

DIY facial mist - what you'll need

What you’ll need:

How to:

Step One

DIY facial mist step 1

Take the green tea bag and steep it in the mug of water for at least 15-20 minutes.

Step Two

Remove the tea bag and let it cool down to room temperature.

Step Three

Add 2-3 drops of vitamin E oil or the contents of the vitamin E capsule. You can see in the photo that I put the tea bag back in since the tea wasn’t as strong as I wanted it to be.

Step Four

Carefully pour the mixture into the spray bottle. Keep it in the fridge until you need to use it. This is completely optional, but I like to add a few ice cubes when I head out so that the mist stays nice and cold throughout the day.

Spritz as often as desired for an immediate cooling sensation!

  1. Abigail- I would say about three to four days. Any longer and it’s probably not a good idea to continue using it.

    Mahima- I have some aloe vera gel lying around; I’ll try it out! Thanks for the suggestion!

    Kimberly, Tatiana, and ChicTrends- Let me know how it works out 🙂

    Daze- Great point! I definitely would not recommend using the same green tea mixture for more than four days.

    Tiff, Taylor, Tyne, Lauren, Katie, Cynthia, Rina, Abby, Melissa, Kelly- Thank you! I love Kiki’s Delivery Service as well; it was my favorite film as a girl and remains my favorite film today! For those of you who are wondering where I bought the cup, I bought mine in Japan.

  2. Love this idea! But just as a heads up, any recipe for products that use water must have a preservative, or else it becomes a breeding ground for bacteria and you definitely don’t want that on your face. 🙁

  3. OHMYGOODNESS! I love your Kiki and Jiji mug!!! I’m obsessed with Kiki’s Delivery Service! Also, I will definitely try your facial mist!

  4. This is brilliant! I’m LOVING this post. I can see how it’s super refreshing, especially during the heat. I can’t wait to try this out. Thanks!

  5. I’ve been using this for quite some time; I’ve also added some fresh aloe vera juice to the mixture – does wonders for me!
