Earlier trends were reserved for makeup looks, hairstyles and haircuts, but now skincare products, too, have started to trend. One product that has recently gained a lot of popularity is a face mist. While cleansing, toning and moisturising are important, they can’t do what face mists can. If you think it is just an additional step in your skincare routine then you are in for a surprise!
Face mists have a ton of benefits. It not only helps refresh your skin throughout the day but can also give you healthy and glowing skin over time. Here’s how and why you should be using a face mist.
Benefits of using a face mist
Locks in moisture: Unlike moisturisers, face mists are water-based and are easily absorbed by the skin, keeping it moisturised for a long time. Spraying face mist before applying sunscreen can lock the moisture in and prevent the feeling of dryness.
Keeps skin fresh: If you want fresh, dewy and glowy skin, start using face mist right away! Did you know Korean women carry a travel-size bottle in their bag at all times and spritz it while sitting in a café or walking down the street? Their gorgeous skin should be enough to convince you to start using a face mist ASAP.
Easy touch-up: Does your skin begin to look dull by mid-day? Instead of dusting powder on the skin, spray on some face mist. This will refresh your skin and makeup too. If you want to control the shine, wait till the mist dries off and then pat some powder.
How to use face mist?
Firstly, find the perfect face mist to get maximum benefits. Picking one with the right ingredients can make your skin healthy and glowing. The Dermalogica Antioxidant Hydramist is infused with white tea, bamboo and pea extract to shield the skin from external damage as well as hydrate dry and dehydrated skin while encouraging firmness and elasticity.
Carry a bottle in your bag and spritz some whenever your skin feels dry or tight. Simply pop off the top, close your eyes and hold the bottle about 10-12 inches away from the face and give yourself about five good spritzes.
