Stay calm, cool and totally hydrated this summer with an intoxicating hydrating mist or spritzer. Not only will your skin thank you, your senses and mood will thank you, too!
What Is It?
A mist or a spritz – often called a hydrating mist, flower water, or refreshing mist, is a lightweight, perfumed liquid that comes your way as a spray ready to spritz over your face, neck and décolletage.
It should smell divine so it lifts your spirits while it invigorating your skin, so make sure you pick one you love the scent of. They will usually have some kind of botanical base, think flowers like roses and lavender, or plants like wild lime. Look for products that contain all natural ingredients to prevent your skin drying out rather than hydrating.
What Does It Do?
There are many, many claims from many, many skincare brands on what a mist or spritz can do, here are a few I find pretty accurate. A mist can close pores, refresh and prep your skin for the next step.
So, here we go, a mist / spritz can;
Support Moisture Balance
Protect from the Elements
Protect from Environmental Aggressors
Lift Your Mood
But all in all, I always feel so much better after a quick spritz of my favourite hydrating mist, the spritz it self is cooling and rejuvenating, and the scents lifts my spritz and my mood – now isn’t that worth a little real estate in your handbag?
How To Use
It’s really quite simple. Hold the product about 20 cms away from your face, close you eyes, and spritz away.
These mists can be used under makeup, consider it something like a toner, or over makeup straight after applying, and throughout the day to freshen things up a little.
TIP: Store you mist in the fridge throughout summer for a super refreshing and uplifting boost!
Keep a hydrating mist in your bag for every occasion, think air-conditioned environments, hot days, workouts, flights, when you wake up in the morning, as a mood booster, if you can’t find your toner, the list just goes on and on.
