I like the cool feeling of misting my face. Making them is just as easy as spraying. I’ve made this with several types of teas. Green tea and chamomile teas are my go to’s but it’s limitless to what kinds of teas you can use as a face mister. For this recipe I will use green tea. Green tea is fab for skin; full of antioxidants, is anti-inflammatory, and a free radical fighter as well! It’s said to have anti aging properties and helps with skin elasticity…all I know is I love it on my face. I spray it on my body too.
Brew a cup per directions on the box. I usually brew mine for three minutes. Let cool completely.
Pour into a clean spray bottle.
Store in the refrigerator.
Spray as often as you’d like. Pour into a travel size bottle and take it with you. Great to up-lift you especially when you are sleepy. I love it right out of the refrigerator. The burst of cool is invigorating. Spray it on before you put on make up for some extra protection. I also mist over my make-up. It doesn’t melt off the make-up. (though 98% of the time I only wear eye shadow and lip stuffs 😀 )
Keeps in the refrigerator for about 5 days.
I wouldn’t use it more than 2 days outside of the refrigerator. What I’ve done; when I make a cup of tea for myself I save back enough to fill a travel size bottle to take with. I usually use it up by that day or I store it in the refrigerator and use it up by the following day.
FYI: Great for the inside, great on the outside. Since it’s a free radical buster, try spraying it on before putting on sun screen. It can help reduce sun damage! See article on “Let’s Make Some Tea” for more fun facts.
