Who doesn’t want glowingly bright, even-toned skin without having to go broke trying to achieve it? Well, now you can by using ingredients from your kitchen! How may you ask? Lemons! Lemons are full of vitamins, antioxidants, and acids that can reverse sun damage, even out skin tone and leave your face looking brighter and younger. This sour citrus fruit also has antibacterial properties, making it a powerful tool against acne breakouts.
This easy, 3-ingredient DIY skin brightening facial spray is simple, refreshing, and effective.
I’ve been using it for a week now and can already see a difference in the overall tonality of my skin. In addition to skin brightening and toning, this spray has other uses as well! I have found that using it in the morning as a makeup setting spray works wonders. I apply it before makeup as a little wake me up, as well as a final touch to keep my makeup looking fresh all day long. Also, I work in an office thus on a computer all day, so this also works great as a mid-day refresher, too!
HERE’S WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
- 1 lemon
- 1/2 cucumber
- spray bottle
- juicer or, alternatively, blender with purée setting
I used this rosewater. It has the addition of aloe vera, which isn’t necessary, but it is said that aloe promotes the production of collagen in the skin. Any rosewater will do, though!
HERE’S THE HOW-TO:
- Fill your spray bottle 2/3 full with rosewater.
- Next, extract the juice from both your lemon and cucumber using either a juicer or blender set on the purée or liquefy setting (you’ll have to hand strain the liquid doing it this way–girl, no biggie!)
- Finally, fill the remaining 1/3 of your spray bottle with the cucumber and lemon juice. Voila! You’re done.
This easy, 3-ingredient DIY skin brightening facial toning spray is gentle enough to use daily, so don’t be afraid to use it generously! Move over Sephora, we got this.
