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 some face mist between the first and second layers to help the foundation/product 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. Also, 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.
Keeping Things Even
It’s always a nightmarish experience for anyone who rushing to work in the mornings to try to appease stubborn makeup that refuses to spread evenly and clumps in unwanted patches. The easiest way to make your morning ritual of getting ready easier is to spray on some face mist on your makeup sponge and dab it lightly on your face for even makeup application. It will also make it last longer and do away with unsightly patches.
If your makeup doesn’t look fresh in the afternoon, making you cringe at the long day to get through, the boring and regular option is to reach for your face wash or cleanser and begin from scratch. The smarter option, however, is to spray on some face mist and lightly dab your compact or mineral powder on your face. You’ll then be ready for another round of those brainstorming sessions at the office. Another pro tip: you can add a dash of life to your dry compact powder, face pack jar, or eye shadow palette that you had 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.
