We all could use a bit of hydration when it comes to our skin and hydration mists are the perfect product to keep those moisture levels up. Want to know how a facial mist can help your skin and makeup game? Here’s just six!

Top Ways to Use a Facial Mist

To Help Along Your Serum or Moisturiser

Adding a spritz of your favourite facial mist after applying a serum or moisturiser can aid in the absorption. How? Being mostly water the facial mists are welcomed with open arms by our skin, and while they’re coming in they can bring their friends aka your serum or too-expensive-to-even-talk-about moisturiser along for the ride.

Try: Rodial Dragon’s Blood Toning Spritz ($70) that combines super hydrating Hyaluronic Acid with brightening and plumping Dragon’s Blood, Rose Water and Vitamin B3.

Setting Your Makeup

Set your makeup for the long haul by spritzing a favourite facial mist over the finished look. It will give your skin a dewy, radiant finish and also keep those products in position for the long haul.

Try: Chantecaille Pure Rosewater ($82) with antibacterials and antioxidants it’s the perfect spritz to set and protect.

Refreshing Your Makeup

    I used to use facial mists all the time but for some reason (I don’t know what that is) I stopped a while ago, and my skin actually has gotten dryer since. That chantecaille Rosewater sounds pretty nice… I’m currently loving all their products.
    I think I’m going to have to start using facial mists again and see if it makes a difference to my skin. Thanks Madeleine x
