Cleanser/serum/moisturizer – add an SPF and you are pretty much sorted when it comes to your skincare routine. There are merits to having a simple and effective 3-step routine. One would argue this comes especially handy in the mornings when you are faced with a choice of a long skincare routine and extra snooze time (snooze time wins hands down).
But it’s the extras that make it fun. One such extra? A facial mist. Will your face fall off if you don’t use a facial mist? That would be a definitive no. But it can be used in a number of ways to enhance your skincare and makeup routines.
Ways to use facial mist with skincare
Refresh your face during the day – during summer facial mists can serve as a great pick-me-up during the day. Likewise during the colder months when the heating is on full blast, it can prevent your skin from drying out. It can come in handy for ladies who are peri-, pre- or post-menopausal and suffer from hot flashes and sweats.
Keep your face hydrated during travel – as we all know travel can wreck havoc on the skin. A facial mist in your luggage can be a skin saviour – it will keep your skin from turning into a dried up prune. If you are travelling by plane just make sure the bottle does not go over the allowed 100 mls limit.
As a hydrating cushion in between your skincare steps – use a facial mist as a hydrating layer between your skincare steps to seal in the moisture. For example – cleanser/toner/spritz/serum/moisturizer.
When using a facial mask – likewise you can spritz your face before you apply a facial mask to get the most benefit from your mask. You can also spritz your face when you have a mask on to re-active it.
Ways to use facial mist with makeup
Facial mists can do wonders for your makeup and there are a lot of ways you can use them effectively.
Before you even apply your foundation, a spritz or two can work as a great primer or a way to blend your foundation more evenly. Facial mist can also be used as a setting spray for your makeup or if you need to refresh your makeup throughout the day or when going out after work.
