Homemade Skincare Recipes – 3 Spritzer your Skin will Love this Summer

Welcome summer! I just arrived in my hometown in Japan after traveling half a day. My family and I will go tracking in the mountains outside Kyoto city and savour some seasonal local food in farm house! Through the journey in this hot weather (did you know Kyoto is one of the hottest cities in Japan?) there is one homemade skincare product that I dare not miss – face spritzer is always in my handbag.

Face spritzer lightly removes excess perspiration and sebum, and prevents the skin from drying under the sun. It is also particularly recommended for those who live in a city with high air pollution. The effect of essential oils also helps to refresh the mood and uplift the energy.

At home, spritz the skin after face wash to softens the skin making it easy for moisturisers to penetrate.
