We evolve, we update, and we restock. No, we aren’t talking about anything spiritual here, just our daily skincare products (don’t judge)! There is always something new, something exciting launching in the market, and our eager selves can’t hold back from trying out new products and formulations.
Today, we’ll be talking about face mists. Now, while face mists aren’t something new, many people are still unaware of their benefits. So, we took it upon ourselves to explore the biggest query people have about face mists — Is it the key to your skin hydration woes? Well, read on to find out…
What’s a face mist, and how does it work?
Let’s begin by understanding exactly what face mists are. Face mists are basically skincare sprays for your face enriched with active ingredients, vitamins and essential oils. Its main purpose is to hydrate, soothe and nourish the skin. Depending on the ingredients, face mists also help control excess sebum production, improve skin texture, set makeup, tighten pores and make your skin look lustrous.
Don’t confuse face mist with toners. While toner is an astringent that works to shrink pores and clean your skin deeply, a face mist simply helps hydrate and moisturise it. All you gotta do is take your face mist, close your eyes and spritz it on your face from about a distance of 10 inches. You can use it in the morning, before makeup, after applying or whenever your skin needs a boost of hydration.
Does it really help hydrate your skin?
Yes, face mists give an instant dose of hydration to your skin. But you need to pick the ones with hydrating ingredients. Look for face mists that have humectant ingredients if you want that instant hydration boost for your skin. Ingredients like glycerin, vitamin C, tea tree oil, hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, etc., help boost skin hydration and give it that envious healthy glow.
