When to use a face mist?
The big idea behind face mists is to give your skin an instant boost of hydration. But it turns out they’re not only about adding extra moisture. Using face mists at certain times can actually give you additional benefits that you may not have thought about. Here are some of our favourite moments to spritz:
- Spritz a mist when you wake up
This one may seem obvious, but there is nothing quite like a little face mist to help rejuvenate and assist you on waking up. Sometimes it’s hard to get out of bed in the morning. Like on a cold morning when you’re all cosy under the covers.
- Use a facial mist under your moisturiser to increase absorption
Get the most out of your moisturiser by hydrating and dampening the skin right before applying your moisturiser to increase its absorption. And since you should apply moisturizer morning and night, using a face mist twice a day is also perfectly fine.
- Before and after makeup application
How does face mist give you a more flawless makeup application? Let us count the ways. For starters, it creates a smooth and hydrated canvas for your foundation. Second, it helps foundation blend better, which means a more natural, sheer look. Last and certainly not least, giving your face a quick spritz after applying makeup can help set your look and prolong longevity and create a more a seamless finish.
- To refresh makeup
Need a trick if you’re planning on going out for the evening with makeup you applied in the morning? As mentioned above, it will help set your makeup so it lasts longer throughout the day. But also, if you need a touch-up, spritz to hydrate skin and make it easier to blend your existing makeup, and leave you with a fresh, dewy finish.
- Pre and post workout
The scenario: you’ve just finished a serious gym session and didn’t bring face wash. You can either walk out with a sweaty face or leave with a hydrated glow and refreshed feel with a spritz of mist.
