I can say with great confidence that you need some facial mist in your life. Not only does it set your make-up, but it also helps with calming, hydrating, replenishing, adding radiance, and irritations. Mists are beauty lifesavers, the cherry on the cake and can take you from looking tired and lackluster to bright and dewy in seconds. That is why I always use them throughout the day and your favourite brand should not be missing on your desk or in your handbag.
Doesn’t “baby skin” sound like a desirable thing to have and what is the way to achieve it with a facial mist?
Apparently, for every layer (of moisturizer, primer, make-up, whatever) that you put on your skin, you should mist. Aim to saturate your skin but not make it dripping wet… and then layer on your next products as normal. If you try this, let me know if you think it makes a difference!
To set your make-up and remove the powdery finish
This is the way I love to use my facial mists throughout the day and of course in the morning after putting on make-up.
A last layer and I wipe down the rest of my facial wash or scrub. Then my skin is ready for the night cream, it can penetrate the skin so much better.
Underneath your moisturizer
After cleansing, give your skin a thorough mist and then without patting it dry, apply your moisturizer of choice straight on top. Because you’re locking in the water with another product, it doesn’t matter which type of facial mist you use here.
Face mist helps dilute other products.
Sometimes, a product just isn’t working. Maybe the consistency is too thick, the texture is too heavy, or the coverage level is too opaque. Face mist can come in handy because you can make your own DIY concoctions—say, diluting a cream into a lotion, or thinning out a foundation into a sheer tint.
Store your favourite facial mist in the fridge and enjoy a cold spritz every now and then during the day. It’s also great in the morning when you do not have time for a shower or after a long-distance flight, right before landing.
