Face Mists. Not exactly new, maybe you’ve heard of it, maybe you haven’t, but face mists seem to be getting quite a lot of buzz nowadays. Sure, it’s great to keep a little compact bottle of face mist for a quick “fresh-me-up” when you don’t have the time to re-wash your face, let alone re-apply your make up. However, aside from keeping this handy dandy spritzer in your bag, there are other ways of using face mists and actually incorporating it into your basic beauty routine, which pretty much includes three steps: 1.cleanse 2.moisturize 3.protect.
So where does the “spray here” or “insert face mist here” go? Let’s jump right in and find out.
1. Before You Moisturize
That right. You can use your face mist right after you cleanse, before you moisturize. Why? Well, you probably know that the best time to use your lotions and potions is right after you get out of the shower. Why? Because your skin is still relatively damp, hence locking in all the moisture and good stuff making the product much more effective. Same principle applies when dealing with face mist.
So, right after you’ve washed your face (with cool, if not cold water to tighten skin and shrink pores) After you pat dry (always, ALWAYS pat dry), ‘mist’ you face. This time, do not pat dry. Follow up with your favorite moisturizer right after.
2. Matters of Makeup
Aside from your basic routine of cleansing, moisturing, and then protecting, you can also use your face mist when applying makeup. It really is simple and won’t take too much (or add too much, that is) time. The basic rule of thumb is when applying your makeup, you simply mist before each layer.
- Let’s say your routine goes something like this:
Moisturizer + Primer + Foundation
- By adding face mist, it becomes like this:
Mist + Moisturizer + Mist + Primer + Mist + Foundation
Now, do note that you don’t want your face soaking before each application. Just a little spritz should do the trick. Again, just like when using your face mist before your put on your moisturizer, there is not need to dry. Apply right after.
How Much Face Mist Is A Must?
When it comes to actually spraying, to reiterate, you don’t want your face to be soaking wet. So basically, you don’t want to spray your mist close to your face. In fact, you don’t want to spray it directly on to begin with.
Kinda like when putting on some fragrance spray into the air two to three times to create a cloud of sorts and then pass your face through. You can also use your hands to waft the mist onto your face as well.
