Benefits of Face Mist Sprays and Setting Sprays
What is a face mist spray?
A facial spray is a delightful treat for your skin. It’s a fine, delicate mist that may combine moisturizing, nourishing and/or protective ingredients, and it also often offers aroma therapeutic benefits. A hydrating coconut mist, for example, features a subtle tropical scent that instantly transports you to your favorite island according to e.l.f. Global Makeup Artist Anna Bynum.
What does a face mist do?
A face spray or face mist serves a number of purposes. It can add moisture to dry skin, provide skin with healthy ingredients, soothe irritated or sensitive skin, refresh you on a warm day or after a rigorous workout, absorb excess oil, give your skin a dewy glow before and after you apply your makeup, act as a setting spray to help set your makeup in place and reawaken your makeup later in the day.
When should you use a face mist in a skincare routine?
Experts recommend misting your face as part of your skincare and makeup routine. Use after cleansing your face and before moisturizing to enhance your skin’s absorption of moisture and to help makeup go on smoother and more evenly. Once you apply your makeup, you can use a fine mist to lock makeup and moisture in place.
If you are at a computer all day there is also a refreshing facial mist like Stay All Day Blue Light Micro-Setting Mist that can be used at any time during the day when you need a refreshing boost. This facial mist spray contains an ingredient called glucosylrutin to reduce the transmittance of blue light.
How do I choose a face mist?
Choose a face mist based on your skin care goals and your individual skin type. If you have dry skin, you will want to use a moisturizing facial mist such as coconut setting spray containing coconut, green tea, and cucumber to condition and hydrate your face. If you want to control oiliness, choose a mattifying setting spray to set your makeup and control shine.
What is the difference between a face mist and a toner?
Face toners are used after cleansing to remove remaining traces of makeup and debris. They prepare your skin for the next step of moisturizing. Face mists can certainly be used after cleansing; however they can also be used as a makeup setting spray and also use throughout the day to refresh, hydrate or control oil. Also, hydrating face mists generally contain more moisturizing and nourishing ingredients than toners.
