If you haven’t noticed lately, face mists are all the buzz. And they are becoming more popular for good reason. In fact, it’s rare to see a beauty guru go a whole YouTube video without spritzing something refreshing onto their faces. So what are face mists and why do you need a face spray? Firstly lets talk about what face mists actually are? What are they made of? Well the main ingredient of most face mist sprays is water! But not just any water, the base is usually a made from a hydrosol or a “flower” water. Hydrosols are made by distilling plants (flowers, herbs, fruits etc). You will find hydrosols made from all sorts of plants – grapefruit, aloe vera, green tea as well as popular flowers such as lavender, rose & jasmine. In addition, face mists may also have other ingredients and essential oils to nourish and protect skin.
Here are some reasons why you should check out using a face mist? You may just find yourself a convert!
Face mists are super hydrating
If you suffer with dry skin, then a face mist is your super-hydrating saviour. Say goodbye to dry patches after just a few sprays (without ruining your makeup). If you suffer with oily skin, then you can use this to keep your skin naturally hydrated. If you let your skin dry out, it’ll produce more oil as a result. Instead, spritz your face throughout the day to combat that oil slick.
Mists keep you cool
If you’re spending a lot of time in the sun, getting involved in sports or fitness or are just generally feeling the heat, keep your face mist on hand. Infused with cooling ingredients, a spray or two can help cool you down and keep your skin calm. If you tend to get very sweaty or red in the heat, then a face mist is your new bestie. Keep yourself looking cool, calm and collected whatever your activity or weather with a few refreshing spritzes.
Mists feed your skin
A spray of a facial mist is not only super refreshing, but also it also incredibly nourishing for the skin. Infused with healthy, healing ingredients, a toning mist can reduce inflammation, tighten pores (and keep them clear, bonus!) and moisturise the skin. Say goodbye to congested skin and pesky blackheads and say hello to hydrated and moisture infused, glowing skin!
And they are makeup perfecto
Use a few sprays of a face mist to create a perfect base to apply your makeup. Then finish off your makeup routine with a few more spritzes to set your makeup in place so it doesn’t budge. Then throw the bottle into your bag and keep topped up throughout the day to keep your face looking flawless. It’s a makeup miracle. And when its time to remove your makeup, face mists are perfect to wipe the last bit of your work day from your face.
Face mists can you give an instant buzz
If you often find yourself start to flag and feel sluggish throughout the day, then a quick spritz of your favourite mist can act as a perfect pick-me-up and reset your mood. A few sprays can awaken your senses and make you feel alive again!
Ditch your toner for an all in one product
So are face mists and toners the same? Increasingly there is a blurring of the products. If you speak to some beauty guru’s they will say face mists are the new toners of our generation! And I would certainly agree. Given there is an increasing overlap of ingredients, why would you not seek out an all in one product? Save time, save some cash to spend on a treat for yourself!
