Face mists

This time of year can be a tricky time to stay looking refreshed with the transition from Summer to Autumn- especially in Ireland! One day the sun is shining, the next you're battling through gale force winds and rain- it can really take a toll on your skin. To help protect yourself from environmental stresses we recommend using a DIY face mist. Face mists provide instant dehydration relief, anti-oxidant protection and offer a revitalised feeling.

Why DIY?

Many water face mists act as a quick fix, once they evaporate they leave your skin feeling tight, this is down to the water disrupting the skins moisture levels. Nothing works better at providing long term hydration than plant extracts and essential oils- our favorites! When you make your own you get all the benefits of your favorite ingredients.

Lemon grass tones and soothes. It is refreshing, stimulating and active. Juniper berry is an oily skin tonic but it is also great for hair loss. It is clearing, restorative and reviving which is why it is known as the oil of protection.

Our skin is the largest organ in the body. Its permeable and is able to both absorb and release. In a way its one of the primary organs of detoxification. What we put into the body (e.g. food) is often reflected in our skin. With veins, arteries and capillaries close the skin surface we have incredible blood supply here. So if there are loads of toxins in your blood it will be reflected in the skin.
