Here’s Exactly Why You Need A Face Mist In Your Make-Up Bag

Face mists may be the miracle skincare product you have been missing in your make-up arsenal. They’re a necessary step in any skincare routine, but they also offer an instant hit of hydration during a stressful workday. Welcome to your full face-mist guide. 

What are the benefits of a facial mist?

Packed with endless benefits, face mists are particularly famous for their refreshing, cooling and soothing properties. They are also known to improve your mood – with just a few refreshing pumps, you are left feeling instantly uplifted by the smell and feeling. Many face mists are also packed with antioxidants and vitamins, and some even contain ingredients that block blue light and environmental pollutants that can clog up skin.

When do I use a face mist?

Hydration is the key here. We all love a hit of hydration because our skin instantly brightens and glows. But did you know there are many other benefits to adding a face mist to your skincare routine, and it depends on the time of day you add the spritz?

  1. When you wake up: Some face mists contain essential oils, such as orange peel, which can wake and hydrate you, setting you up for a mood-boosting serotonin hit.
  2. Before your moisturiser: Your skin can more effectively absorb whatever you apply next if you add a splash of hydration first. Additionally, you should use a face mist twice a day since you should moisturise morning and night.
  3. Refresh your make-up: A spritz of a face mist is one of the easiest ways to set your make-up, as well as give it a dewy look between the office and a night out. 
  4. Post workout: Yesss! You killed it at the gym! Need an instant refresh? A face mist will give you the hydration hit your flushed face needs.
