So you know how your face tends to feel pretty ~meh~ midday? Like, out of nowhere, you start to get super oily, the skin around your nose is flaky, and that glow your complexion had going on in the morning is now just plain dull. Yeah. We’ve all been there, which is why it’s time for me to introduce you to your new BFF: face mist.
Face mist can be like a total reset when your face is acting bleh. All you have to do it spritz a few inches away from your face and voila! Your skin feels (and looks) so much more hydrated and radiant than before. And look, I know what you’re thinking: Aren’t they the same thing as a regular old bottle of water? Not true. In fact, according to experts, they’re actually the perf addition to your skincare routine.
“Face mists help refresh the skin and offer an instant pick-me-up, especially after a long day,” says Dr. Marnie Nussbaum, MD, a dermatologist based in New York. “For example, some mists feature hyaluronic acid and offer skin moisturizing properties, while others may also be used instead of a toner.” A bonus? Face mists can double as a setting spray post-makeup application. (Hello, glowy skin.) Some are even infused with things like vitamin C or contain skin-soothing ingredients to help keep inflammation and redness flareups at bay, Nussbaum explains.
