In our unpredictable weather, where it’s somehow always humid, even in the rainy season, facial mists have become a beauty kit staple to skincare enthusiasts.
“While many of us assume a face mist is just overpriced scented water, it’s actually much more than that,” Forbes wrote. According to Dr. Kally Papantoniou, a New York-based cosmetic dermatologist and founder of Simply Dermatology, “A facial mist can be refreshing and hydrating to the skin. It’s especially useful for those who have sensitive or extremely dry skin, travel frequently, or live in dry climates.”
Skin Care Edit lists down reasons why Facial Mists are a must-have. This includes its ability to hydrate skin on the go and seal in extra moisture, prime skin for makeup, as well as help blend or revive makeup, boost absorption of moisturizers and masks, and even help control oil production. Yes, it’s capable of both moisturizing and mattifying skin.
