Skincare products absorb better when applied to damp skin. You can easily make the most out of your serums, essences, hydrating masks, or moisturisers by prepping your skin with a light veil of your face mist of choice after cleansing. Not only does this infuse your skin with added nutrients and moisture, it increases the permeability of your skin, allowing the following products to penetrate deeper into the skin and work more effectively.
Face mists actually don’t really get enough credit in ensuring our complexion stays hydrated, nourished, radiant, and healthy. Here are 5 reasons why having a face mist in your skincare arsenal can become a real beauty game-changer.
1. Skin Soother
If your skin is easily inflamed, overheated, and susceptible to sensitivity, using a face mist can do wonders in calming your skin. Many are naturally rich in minerals without the need of additional ingredients to help soothe and hydrate hypersensitive, allergic, or itchy skin.
2. Makeup Refresher
For those who need to wear makeup for long periods of time, face mists also do a great job at refreshing your look. It brings a natural glow back to the skin, while allowing your cracked makeup to blend together better again. All you need to do after that is touch up or spot conceal, and the rest of the day is yours.
3. On-the-go Moisture Boost
Skin that’s constantly exposed to air-conditioning or dry climates can often find itself feeling parched and dehydrated in just a few hours – even with the right moisturiser. A moisturising face mist comes in particularly handy during these times, especially ones that contain emollients – botanical oils and squalane.
This is where a hydrating face mist that contains humectants don’t work, as these types can dry out your skin further as it evaporates. Just remember: emollients nourishes the skin and lock in moisture, humectants pull moisture from the environment or from within your skin.
