i have two things for you today: a song for your heart and a refreshing diy tonique for your smiling face!
put this on play and let’s get started…
gather your ingredients. you will need: an airtight spritzing bottle, 1/8c rosewater* (look for one that contains glycerin), 1/2c filtered water & 2tsp lemon juice. all you have to do is measure out your ingredients and pour them into the bottle. seal it up, give it a quick shake et voila! you’re done!
this toner mist will keep in the fridge for 6-8wks! i use a spray or two of this when i want a quick pick me up to refresh my face. the rosewater is soothing and the lemon juice is full of antioxidants & antiseptic properties helping fade old imperfections and prevent new from forming! it also works as a soothing treatment if you are sunburned. personally, this fragrant tonique is also a stress reliever with the delicate and lingering notes of rose. give it a try! your skin will thank you
*you can also make your own rosewater sans glycerin by putting 1 cup petals in a boil with 2 cups boiling water and letting it steep for a few hours. after the steeping, strain off the petals and there you go, diy rosewater!
how’s everyone doing midweek? do you have any skincare tips to share with me? my thoughts are with those on the northeast getting a taste of winter’s last gasp! be safe & warm x
