How are you? I hope you are managing to keep cool in this wonderful UK heatwave? Loose cotton and linen clothes are what I’m living in right now. How about your skin care regime, have you changed anything? I’m finding it very hard to wear makeup in this heat, it disappears fast (where to, I dont know?!) I am not a fan of powder, so I avoid wearing makeup at the moment. It is facial sprays that have been my skin care saviours.
Have you tried facial sprays/misters/toners yet? If not here are a few suggestions and a homemade diy version for you to try too!
5 Facial Sprays:
The one in my handbag:
I purchased this one by Tarte in Sephora. We were on vacation in Florida at the beginning of the year. I love to search out treasures whilst in the USA. I bought the small size, it lasted well and is the perfect size for a handbag or purse.
Tarte says… A portable, multipurpose setting spray that primes, sets, hydrates, & refreshes skin while locking down makeup for 12 hours & smoothing the look of fine lines & wrinkles.
I can’t attest to the smoothing wrinkles claims but I do rather like it for a freshen up on the train!
The one in my Fridge:
This is one I purchased in Morocco and I used it whilst I was there, it was a lifesaver. This is an orange blossom one. It’s gorgeous and so fresh and zingy. I keep it in the fridge and have a spritz whilst Im making a coffee…
I bought it from a womens co-operative store in the Souks of Marrakech. The women get together to run the store and profits are shared. I am going to refill this bottle with my diy version (see below…)
The one by my bed:
The one I made:
I bought a ‘plant mist’ plastic spray bottle, I use a similar one on my cacti! You can find them in the garden dept of B&Q or Homebase.
I filled it with chilled water from our Brita fridge jug then added a few drops of lavender oil and I keep it close at hand. Not just a facial spray I ‘mist’ everything when the temperature rises, even the dogs! Obviously this is the cheapest of the facial sprays i have listed here.
The one on my wishlist!
Only £8 too!
I have used Mario Badescu’s facial sprays before, the sample sizes are perfect for travelling.
“…Invigorate dull, tired skin with an infusion of Cucumber and Peppermint Essential Waters. This facial mist delivers a cooling boost of hydration as Green Tea provides powerful antioxidant protection—leaving the skin feeling refreshed and revitalized”
Another Top tip…
I keep my fragrances in the fridge at the moment!
Can you recommend a good way to keep cool, or are you a fan of facial sprays ? I love them let me know about your faves…
