Cucumber + lemon face mist

Cucumber + lemon face mist

You will need:

  • 1 medium cucumber, chopped (helps keep oiliness away and diminishes dark spots)
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice (a natural source of vitamin C for even-toned skin)
  • 1 mint tea bag (contains salicylic acid for clearing blemishes and induces glow)
  • 1/2 cup distilled water

How to:

Step 01: Start by mashing the cucumber in a clean bowl

Step 02: Put it in a paper towel or coffee filter and squeeze out the juice from the cucumber

Step 03: Add freshly squeezed lemon juice to this mixture

Step 04: Steep the mint tea bag in hot water for 5 minutes

Step 05: Remove the tea bag and wait for the tea to cool down

Step 06: Once cool, add the cucumber and lemon juice mixture to the tea.

Your glow-inducing face mist is ready! Transfer this concoction to a clean spray bottle and store in a refrigerator. Shake well before use.
