DIY Rose Moisturizing Spray (Toner or Skin Freshener)

Tone, freshen, and deodorize your skin with this 3 ingredient rose moisturizing spray! Only three natural ingredients and 30 seconds. Good for all skin-types.

If you’ve been around Live Simply for long, then you know that I’m not much a frivolous kind of gal. I’m a lover of blue jeans and cute flats, simple homemade meals and easy natural solutions. Practical is the name of the game when you’re a mom living with two kids, six chickens, two dogs, and one patient man.

For this reason, most of the DIYs around here are practical–dish soap, laundry soap, glass cleaner, face soap, body wash, etc. I love a good pampering, but 99.9% of my life right now is about practical necessity, maybe with an occasional lip scrub or massage mixed in–every few months.

With that preface, let’s talk about a practical, fancy, and pampering DIY. Think of this little DIY, which takes an entire 30 seconds to make, as a little touch of summer pampering with multiple practical uses. Let’s talk about DIY Rose Moisturizing Spray , shall we?

Summer is the time of year when my skincare needs drastically change. My skin quickly shifts from a desire for thick moisture in the “winter” months (Florida winter) to hydration throughout the humid summer. I usually switch from my heavier skin and body lotion to a simple facial serum for light moisture. The serum sinks into my skin and provides the hydration my skin so desperately seeks.

I also add a moisturizing spray to my homemade beauty/self-care regime. A special spray sounds fancy and a bit frivolous, but it’s super practical. Homemade rose spray provides my skin with daytime hydration in the warmer temperatures, along with neutralizing body odor and freshening my skin. My moisturizing rose spray is made with just three simple ingredients, let’s take a look…

Rose Hydrosol: A hydrosol is the aromatic water that is leftover after steam distilling a plant. Hydrosols, unlike essential oils, are safe to use directly on the skin and offer many therapeutic and cosmetic benefits. Rose hydrosol may be used as a skin toner, room freshener, deodorant, and a calming or sensual spray. This floral hydrosol is suitable for all skin-types, making it the perfect spray ingredient to freshen the skin during the hot (and sweaty!) summer months.

Glycerin(e): Glycerin is a thick, colorless liquid used in many of my DIY recipes (for example: bug spray and body wash). Cosmetically, glycerin may be used a cleanser, toner, or moisturizer. Glycerin is added to this recipe for both toning and moisturizing benefits.

Witch Hazel: Witch hazel is a natural astringent. When mixed with aloe it may be used to soothe a sunburn, or by itself to help tone the skin. Witch hazel is added to this recipe to help tone the skin and provide a cleansing solution.

I called this recipe “practical,” so let’s talk about practical application. You know, the good stuff–how to use this floral spray.

My favorite uses for this spray include: a hydrating deodorizer after a sweaty workout (I started Insanity a few weeks. This is my post-workout skin freshener), a cooling mist after spending time in the sun, or a skin freshener/spray cleanser while traveling and my skin just feels dirty and oily. This spray may also be used as a moisturizing toner during the summer, which means you may be able to skip the toner/astringent and lotion or serum. Finally, this spray may also be used to freshen your armpits…I know, TMI, but it’s true. Moving on…

Tone, freshen, and deodorize your skin with this 3 ingredient rose moisturizing spray! Only three natural ingredients and 30 seconds. Good for all skin-types.

DIY Moisturizing Rose Spray is my go-to moisturizer/freshener all summer long. Go ahead, pamper yourself, practically. It feels good!
