So I’m tired of running to the store to get setting spray for my makeup. I run through it like water! So after doing some research I was able to make an easy DIY spray with some ingredients that were already in my bathroom!
Now I know the title sounds conflicting, but hear me out.
What you’ll need:
-Alcohol-Free Witch Hazel (mine consists of distilled rose water)
-Alcohol-Free Aloe Vera Gel
-Small Empty Spray Bottle (I reused one from my ELF Mist & Set)
Water is of course hydrating alone, but only goes so far on the skin. It’ll act as the main ingredient to help mix the other two ingredients together.
Witch Hazel has been around for a really long time and can help prevent and heal skin problems such as:
- Oily Skin (helps to balance skins natural oils)
My favorite is Thayer’s Witch Hazel w/Rose Pedal
It consists of distilled (or purified) rose water which is also great for acne and redness, as well as being an anti-agent and anti-inflammatory.
Aloe Vera Gel:
Aloe vera gel is great for soothing the skin, also treating acne, aging, and is a great source of moisture for the skin while absorbing excess oils in the process. I use the Fruit of the Earth Alcohol-Free Aloe Vera Gel.
The bottle that I used is 2.02 oz. so I mixed 1 part witch hazel, 1 part aloe vera gel, and 3 parts water. I shook it up and it was ready for use. If you want a cool and refreshing mist, then feel free to let it sit in your refrigerator. Not only is it great as a setting spray, but for daily skin hydration as well.
