Ask an expert and they'll tell you - the number one beauty hack for gorgeous dewy skin is to ensure you drink between 8-10 glasses of water every day. Preach!
But what if we said there was another way to achieve that post-workout glass-like skin that everyone’s forever chasing? One that goes beyond stocking up on your favorite moisturizers, investing in a humidifier, or busting 10 rounds of burpees at the gym. We’re not saying you should, but if you want to get the dew without doing the work maybe it’s time you level up.
Enter face mists. Our new beauty best friend.
Part beauty product, part self-care ritual, facial mists have been taking on the skincare world by a storm. In the pandemic era, with various hygiene-related concerns and mask-ne becoming a thing, mists have become a great hands-free and non-pore clogging way to refresh skin.
But the question remains - Are face mists ‘really’ worth it?
Although often known to be all-weather wonders, face mists are considered extremely beneficial during harsh summers. Aside from the much-needed spritz of freshness, they provide immense hydration and leave the skin looking dewy and revitalized. There is also the convenience factor - It is so easy to pull out a mist, spritz it on your face, and Voila! One is good to go.
This versatile skin fixer also works great as a make-up setting spray, toner, and a skin soother. The soothing combination of ingredients usually infused in face mists can also help tackle a variety of skin issues such as dullness, redness, irritation, acne, etc.
How should one incorporate face mists into their beauty routine?
The benefits of using face mists are manifold and they can be used almost any time of the day! But one can also use it at specific moments to maximize your skin’s glow potential.
According to us, the best times to use a face mist are:
- Right after you wake up and before you go to sleep
- After using toner
- Before using moisturizer
- Before application of make-up and after
- When your skin is feeling extremely dehydrated
The key is to provide hydration and also prep the skin for delivery when using other skincare products. In addition to this, we believe, using a face mist is the most uncomplicated thing you can ever do. That’s probably why this trend is loved by beauty bloggers across the world.
