Are your days long and busy, and can’t seem to find the time to re-touch and refresh your face while you’re out and about? Well, if that’s the case for you, you might want to add a face spritz to your bag. Face spritzes are like a face mask’s cooler cousin - you’ll get the same results as from a 10-minute face mask in just a few spritzes.
You would be pleasantly surprised at how much of a difference a moisturizing mist can make in your skincare routine if you have never used one before. They give your makeup look a natural, dewy sheen and are the ideal setting spray if you like a fuller-faced appearance. Additionally, if you have dry skin, are looking a little worse for wear after a long weekend, or just want a little pick-me-up throughout the day, a face spritz is your best friend.
You don't even need to take a shower to give your skin a small boost with a moisturizing mist. It's safe to say that a face mist is the piece of your beauty puzzle that's been lacking up to this point because it offers a ton of incredible skincare advantages in just a few short seconds.
Say goodbye to fine lines and dark circles and hello to radiant, youthful skin - with a face spritz, you’re ready to take on the world!
What are they?
Face spritzes are the equivalent of men’s all-in-one body wash/shampoo/conditioner, it’s a pick-me-up for tired and dull skin, a quick hydration boost and it gives you an instant healthy glow.
What do they do?
Face spritzes are not new to the skincare game, but they’re completely underrated - throughout the day they’ll refresh and revitalise your skin, but the reason you need one is that it will enhance your entire skincare routine.
Face Mist, Thermal Water, Toner, Essence, and Setting Spray: Their Differences
Mists can be applied over and under makeup, in between parts of your skincare routine, as a quick pick-me-up, and even to dilute other products.
Face mists have become extremely popular in recent years, thus there are an increasing number of products available. The issue is that, even if you spritz them on, they frequently go by different names, like toner or essence. Are they identical to one another?
No, not always! Here's how to distinguish between them:
Face mist vs. essence: In the world of Korean beauty, the essence is a type of liquid serum that you put on with your fingertips and typically has a watery quality. It has more concentrated chemicals than a mist and is designed to be used as a second layer of moisture over moisturisers. Mist can be used at any stage of your skincare or cosmetic routine and is much lighter and typically contains more water.
Face mist vs. thermal water: A face mist kind that is made entirely of water is called thermal water (and with a higher mineral content than regular water, which helps with dryness and irritation). Face mists also include humectant and emollient substances in addition to water.
Face mist vs. setting spray: Setting spray is makeup rather than skincare and contains film-formers that keep makeup in place. Instead of giving makeup more staying power, the mist is packed with more skin-friendly elements that can make it look more natural.
- Face mist vs. toner: Toner is used after washing the face to get rid of any cleanser residue and get the skin ready for moisturizer. Contrarily, mist can be used at any time of day and is typically more nourishing. However, moisturizing toners, which are increasingly well-liked, are comparable to hydrating mists.
Do You Need Face Mists?
Sometimes a product is simply not working. Maybe the texture is too heavy, the consistency is too thick, or the coverage is too opaque. Face mist is useful since you can create your own homemade mixtures, such as converting a cream into a lotion or thinning out the foundation to create a sheer tint.
It may not be a necessary step like using cleansers and sunscreen. However, mist is undoubtedly a practical technique to give your skin a boost and increase your makeup game.
Making sure the product is formulated with high-quality ingredients and used at the appropriate point in your beauty process will help you choose and use your mist effectively. (A more occlusive moisturizer should be used to seal in humectant-based mists to prevent moisture loss.)
In addition to its adaptability, the instant gratification aspect of face mist is one of our favourites. Your skin looks dewier, plumper, and brighter with just one spritz. The beautiful thing about facial mists is that although they may not be permanent, it still works.
How to Use a Face Mist?
- To refresh skin
It should go without saying that a facial mist is the quickest skin reviver ever, spraying your face feels cooling and revitalising.
- To instantly hydrate
When you spritz on a face mist throughout the day, it can help moisturise your skin if it is made with extra moisturising components. Bonus: Using a mist won't ruin your makeup like applying moisturiser repeatedly will!
- To soothe sensitive skin
A face spray can help reduce redness, soothe irritation, and restore moisture to skin that is prone to dryness. Select a simple, straightforward formula with gentle components to avoid potential irritants like alcohol and fragrance.
- To lock in additional moisture
Applying face mist on top of your skincare and makeup routines is another approach to boost your skin's moisture. For instance, you might mist before and after moisturiser, between primer and makeup, or between cleanser and serum (allowing a few moments for it to absorb after every spritz). With each step, the product you apply on top helps to lock in the moisture. The end result will be skin that looks plumper and dewier.
- To remove excess oil
Think again if you thought your only alternatives for reducing shine during the day were translucent powders and blotting papers. Oil will be absorbed while still giving light hydration if your face mist contains the correct ingredients for your skin.
When should I use a face spritz in my routine?
A face spritz works best when used in between the daily steps of your skincare routine.
But a face spritz is much more flexible than other skincare steps because you pop it in your handbag and can use it throughout the day as well - if your skin is feeling thirsty and dry if your makeup starts to look dull - don’t hold back!
