Amidst our simple CTM routines or multi-step skincare rituals, there’s often one product that happens to be skipped and/or ignored. And well, that is a face mist. From being treated as just fragrant water to not having any major mind-blowing benefits (unlike a vitamin C serum or a retinol cream), these are some reasons that may have resulted in face mist’s status as the feel-good product in the skincare world. But they aren’t any run-of-the-mill fragrant sprays, rather they help rejuvenate, revive, and restore your skin. And with many a beauty brands packing them up with skin-boosting ingredients, there’s a mist out there for all your skin goals – be it sun protection, skin brightening, mattifying, skin calming, or blue-light protection. Besides the fancy individual perks, every face mist does refreshen up your skin’s hydration levels. And the best part is that you can give yourself a much-needed spritz several times a day without disturbing your existing skincare or makeup.
Simply put, face mists are pretty much essential if you are on a quest for great, healthy skin, especially since aside from hydration benefits, they work perfectly to prep and prime the skin for maximum absorption of other skincare (or makeup) products to follow when used simultaneously in the routine.
From skin soothing Dr.Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Calming Mist to the French beauty staple Eau Thermale Avène Thermal Spring Water Mist, from mattifying La-Roche Posay Serozinc Face Mist to blue-light protecting Dr. Sheth’s Indoor Protection Mist, from anti-inflammatory and refreshingly fragrant Kama Ayurveda Pure Mogra Water Mist to anti-pollution CHANEL D-Pollution Essential Daily Protection Mist and pore refining and pH balancing Perenne Rivtalising Tonic Mist – you’ll definitely find here the face mist that gives both your skin and mood a little pick-me-up. And in case, you are still wondering if face mists are a must-have or not, remember all you need is just one spritz to fix your mood and de-stress the skin right off. Well, go ahead and add one to both your dresser and WFH space, pronto.
