What Is a Face Mist?
Face mists are liquids that you spritz over your skin with a spray bottle or atomizer. Most of them are loaded with moisturising and calming substances, but you may also find astringent mists and even oil-absorbing powders.
Face mists have been around for a while, and they are a must-have in the bag for those of us who enjoy travelling. But, other than the obvious benefits of cooling off and smelling great, did you know that you can use facial mists with your makeup or other skincare products to achieve some very specific results?
They can also be used in between skincare steps and to dilute other products like thick moisturizers, eye creams, etc.,
It is entirely up to you how and when to use them.
Here are 5 quick and easy fixes you can make with a face mist!
Morning makeup is easier.
When it comes to getting dressed in the mornings, every woman's nightmare is hard makeup that clumps up on your face and causes spots. To balance your makeup and make it last longer and without unattractive spots, spray a face mist on your sponge/blender!
Under your SPF
Despite being an old trick, it is not used enough. It's important to keep your face moist before applying your day cream or SPF. By doing so, your skin will become more hydrated. Face mists are a convenient way to make sure your face is ready for cream without making a trip to the ladies' room. It's a double bonus for your skin if your face mist includes additional ingredients!
The long hours spent in an air-conditioned space, or on a flight, are sure to dehydrate your skin. Using a facial mist containing hydrating and soothing ingredients like cica, hyaluronic acid, and panthenol will improve the skin's ability to retain moisture.
A refresher in the afternoon
Although it's 4 PM, there is still a lot to do that day. Your makeup doesn't look fresh. It's a no brainer: wash your face and start over. A better solution: A few sprays of face mist, a light dusting of a powder compact, and you are all set for another round of meetings!
To Dilute Other Products
Is the eye shadow, compact, or face pack jar you opened a month ago looking a little drier than you'd like? Apply some facial spray to bring it back to life!.If your moisturiser or sunscreen is thick in texture, you can dilute it with a hydrating mist.
What does a face mist contain?
Facial mists are no longer used only for moisturizing. These days, facial mists are promising to deliver all kinds of results.
Even though their primary function is to hydrate the skin, the other ingredients in the facial mist can have other effects.
The first ingredient you see on the ingredient list is water. Water-based mists play an excellent supporting role when it comes to delivering active ingredients to the skin.
Continue by looking at the remaining ingredients of the mist. Some mists are just water and propellant. Other products contain herbs, oils, and extracts that claim to tighten, moisturize, energize, or stimulate the skin in some way. Adding sunscreen to a mist can add a layer of skin protection on top of your makeup.
A face mist cannot contain certain ingredients. Generally, fragrances, oils, most alcohols, and water alone can be counterproductive as face mist ingredients. Specific alcohols you should avoid are "solvent alcohols," which can be extremely drying to the skin.
Hydrating face mist with cica and peptides
Centella, also known as cica, is found in many skincare products. It contains biologically active compounds, pentacyclic triterpenoid saponins called asiaticoside, madecassoside, asiatic, and madecassic acid (also called centellosides).
It is used to treat small wounds, burns, and scratches, and it’s also a well known anti-inflammatory agent for eczema.
When added to a mist, it hydrates and leaves skin soft and supple.
Formulated with cica for those looking to moisturize their skin quickly, SUGANDA-SKINCARE HYDRATING MIST CICA PEPTIDE mist is enriched with pea peptide and panthenol.
This super-refreshing mist also reduces skin imperfections, creates a moisture barrier to encourage its strength and endurance, and replenishes moisture to keep it dewy.
The multi-active skin correcting pea peptide in this formula addresses dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and skin roughness. Panthenol calms inflammation
There is no hard and fast rule for how frequently you should spray your face. It's all about paying attention to your skin and understanding what it needs, among other things. Give your skin a spray if it's feeling dry. Take your face mist with you so you can use it as required.
