WHAT TO DO

If you want to you can add other ingredients like aloe vera, vegetable glycerin, or witch hazel to help moisturise or soothe your skin.

The reason mineral water is used is because unlike tap water, mineral water not only contains added minerals and nutrients for the skin to absorb, but also helps to balance pH levels.
