Hello everyone. Welcome back to my beauty blog. So I got a request to talk about hydrating facial sprays/mists since I use them a lot.
First of all, what are they, I like to think there’s a difference between hydrating and refreshing mists, these are also not the same as makeup setting sprays. Refreshing mists are great for hot humid days when your face just feels so hot and off and you literally need to refresh your skin.
These hydrating sprays I use are to hydrate my skin, they are like liquid moisturizers, I have normal to dry skin and especially on cold days, my face sometimes gets a bit dehydrated/tight/dry and I don’t want to reapply moisturizers during the day, so what I do is spray my face with my hydrating mist and if I’m outside or going back out, I make sure to reapply sunscreen about 5-10mins after spraying my face.
So that answers the why, when and how question of hydrating sprays. These mists are made with ingredients like moisturizers but in a faster delivery system – mist form.
Yes, they work really well in keeping me hydrated for hours during the day. I also don’t need to put them in the fridge because unlike refreshing sprays, I don’t need them to keep me cool but hydrated.
The mists aren’t heavy at all , unlike traditional moisturizers, I don’t see them clogging pores and are suitable for all skin types. You can use them anytime really, even during your skincare routine for extra hydration, sometimes I use mine first in the morning if I’m not doing my routine in the next 1-3 hours , just to keep hydrated if I ever wake up with tight dry skin.
That’s all I have for now, If you need more recommendations and have any questions for me, please feel free to ask in the comment section or send me a dm on IG (@skinwithabiola) and id love to hear from you. Till then, you’re loved. Bye ❣️❣️
