You must have heard your bestie raving about her face mist or your favorite celeb gushing about her must-have or favorite face mists. Or, if you’re a travel buff, you probably know about its benefits and always put a bottle in your handbag. Apart from cooling down your skin, face mists can work wonders for your skincare routine or makeup. Scroll down to learn more about these lesser-known benefits of face mists.
If you’re fond of the “dewy look”, face mists can be your go-to beauty hack. If you prefer using more than a single layer of makeup, spritz on a face mist between the two layers to help the makeup spread evenly, and give you your desired look.
If you spend long hours in air-conditioned spaces or have dehydrated skin, a face mist can help you hydrate your skin. But make sure to choose one with soothing and hydrating ingredients such as glycerin, aloe vera, and hyaluronic acid to retain the skin’s moisture more effectively.
Before you apply sunscreen or day cream, moisten your face with a face mist to lock in the moisture. Face mists with natural ingredients give your skin that much-needed softness and keep it supple.
Nothing is worse than needing to rush to work but seeing stubborn makeup that refuses to spread evenly and clumps up on the face creating unwanted patches. The easiest way to make your morning ritual of getting ready easier is to spray on a face mist on your makeup sponge and dab it lightly on your face to even out makeup, make it last longer, and do away with unsightly patches.
If your makeup doesn’t look fresh in the afternoon and makes you cringe as you have a long day to get through, the boring and regular option is to reach out for your face wash or cleanser and begin from scratch. But the smarter option is to spray on some face mist and lightly dab your compact or mineral powder on your face, and you’re ready for another round of those brainstorming sessions at the office.
You can also add a dash of life to your dry compact powder, face pack jar, or eye shadow palette that you opened a month ago and spritz some face mist on it.
These tips could make you look at your humble face mist in a new light. But remember to steer clear of ones containing isopropyl alcohol, denatured alcohol, and ethyl alcohol as alcohol dries out the skin, the exact reverse of what we want our face mists to do.
