DIY: Skin-Clearing Post-Yoga Face Spray

Now that my day revolves around teaching and taking classes, my body is constantly sweating. To keep my skin clear and healthy, I've been looking for a facial spray with all-natural ingredients that smells great and isn't too expensive. I had been searing online and hadn't had much luck when it dawned on me that I could make one myself!

I did some research online and was inspired by a few different facial sprays, including this one from Free People. After a few test trials, I settled on the following natural ingredients:

Peppermint tea: Peppermint tea has been used for hundreds of years to treat oily skin, as well as cure skin irritations. 

Sea salt: Sea salt absorbs toxins from the skin, making it an excellent detoxifier. In addition, it helps exfoliate the skin and reduce stress. 

Tea tree oil: Tea tree oil has been proven to reduce acne as well as benzoyl peroxide.

Lemongrass: Lemongrass is an anti-microbial and anti-bacterial herb. It helps prevent skin infections and acts as an astringent, which helps to minimize pores.

Lavender: In addition to its calming aromatherapy effect, lavender contains powerful antioxidants that helps to keep skin clear and clean.

It couldn't be easier to make this facial spray. All you need to do is brew the tea and mix all of the ingredients together, and then allow to cool. I refrigerated mine to speed up the process. Depending on the size of your bottle, this will likely make more than a bottle's worth, so share the love with your friends!
