What is a face mist, anyway?
Face mists are liquids that you mist onto your skin via a spray bottle or atomizer. Most are packed with hydrating and soothing ingredients. Besides acting as an instant pick-me-up, face mists can be used in between your skin care steps, over and under makeup, and even to dilute other products.
What are its uses and benefits?
1. To refresh your skin
This one goes without saying—face mist is the fastest-ever skin reviver. Spritzing your face feels cooling and refreshing on a hot day, post-workout, or whenever you hit that midday slump at the office.
2. To instantly hydrate
If you choose a face mist formulated with extra hydrating ingredients, it can help moisturize your skin when you spritz it on throughout the day. As a bonus, unlike repeat applications of moisturizer, a mist won’t mess up your makeup.
3. To seal in extra moisture
Another way to increase your skin’s hydration is to layer one or more applications of face mist in between your skincare and makeup steps. For example, you could mist in between cleanser and serum, before and after moisturizer, or in between primer and foundation (allowing a few moments for it to absorb after every spritz). With each step, you’re sealing in the moisture with the product you put on top. The end result will be a plumper, dewier skin look.
4. To soothe sensitive skin
If your skin is prone to sensitivity, a face mist can help take down redness, calm irritation, and replenish lost moisture. It just needs to be the right face mist. Choose a face mist with natural ingredients and basic formula which are proven safe to use anytime of the day.
5. To absorb excess oil
If you thought translucent powders and blotting sheets were your only options to control shine throughout the day, think again. Face mists actually help absorb oil while providing lightweight moisture.
6. To boost absorption of other products
Damp skin acts like a sponge, quickly absorbing any products you put on it. So, if you want to maximize the performance of your lotions, creams and face oils, try using them on top of a layer of face mist. They’ll penetrate deeper, giving your skin more of their beneficial ingredients. The same thing goes for masks—they’ll glide on more smoothly and sink in easily if your skin is moist, not dry.
7. To prime your skin for makeup
If you apply it before foundation, a layer of face mist can create a smoother, more hydrated canvas over which to apply your makeup. Using a face mist before applying liquid makeup helps it to spread more easily, giving you a sheer, even finish instead of looking cakey. Another great trick is to use your face mist to dampen a makeup sponge then gently press it into your skin to remove any excess product. In addition, face mists can also be used on top of or instead of setting powders.
