Do I Need a Face Mist?

Most of us know the key role hydration plays at maintaining healthy skin, preventing wrinkles and improving skin texture. We usually rub in a moisturizer during our morning and night routine and call it a day. However, much like drinking water, in reality our skin benefits the most with constant hydration throughout the day.


Unfortunately it’s not that easy to reapply your favorite moisturizer all the time. Reaching for a jar with dirty fingers or rubbing the product mid-day and on top of makeup is inconvenient and possibly anti-sanitary. In comes a secret weapon: The face mist! Face mists appeared in the market seemingly yesterday, but have taken over the skincare industry and for a good reason. They’re super convenient, have a hands-free application and can keep your skin soft. Here are some of the benefits of using it:

  • Face mists refresh your skin. 


This doesn’t need to be stated, face mists are an instant pick-me-up! Spritzing your face feels cooling and relaxing, specially on a hot day, during a flight or after that stressful meeting at the office.

  • Face mists hydrate your skin on-the-go.


When you pick a face mist with hydrating ingredients* (like coconut water, glycerin and aloe vera), it helps heal dry skin if you spray it on throughout the day. The added benefit is that it won’t mess up your makeup like reapplying a moisturizer would.

* As counterintuitive as it sounds, using only water mists without added humectants will actually make your skin drier!

  • Face mists revive your makeup.


Most of us head straight from the office to dinner or cocktails. Face mists are a simple and effective way to touch-up your foundation without having to start from scratch. All you need to do is mist your face a couple times and use your fingers or a brush to blend the foundation. Use a concealer where needed, and your makeup will look brand new. 

There are so many ways to use face mists! It’s a super versatile and easy-to-use product. The best thing about face mists is that you can immediately see the results. The skin will look less dry, more dewy and you’re guaranteed to feel more relaxed after spraying.
