How Facial Mist Benefits Your Skin

We’ve all seen TikTokers spritzing themselves with facial mist. And while we can all agree that facial spray looks refreshing, many people don’t understand how facial mist benefits the skin. As The Hydration Experts, we’re uniquely equipped to be your guide to this sometimes mist-ifying category.

Read on to learn how facial mist benefits your skin, when to use face mists in your routine, and which ingredients to look for in your ideal product.

What is a Facial Mist?

A face mist is a water-based spray that’s aimed at rehydrating the skin. While they’re popular among people with dry and sensitive skin, facial mists can benefit all skin types by adding crucial hydration back into the skin, helping to calm, soothe, and reduce oil production by quenching dehydration.

When choosing a face mist, look for hydrating, nourishing ingredients – such as our award-winning Hyaluronic Acid Facial Mist. It contains  hyaluronic acid, a humectant that bonds with water molecules in the environment, drawing them into skin and binding with collagen to trap moisture within the epidermis.

It also includes another facial mist must-have: sugarcane squalane. This bio fermented molecule mimics your body’s natural moisture, plumping skin and providing soothing nourishment to strengthen your skin’s moisture barrier for radiant, nourished skin.

Facial Mist Benefits

Adding a face mist to your skincare routine can visibly improve the look of skin by:

  • Instantly quenching dehydrated skin by drawing in moisture
  • Visibly plumping fine lines and wrinkles by hydrating skin
  • Immediately boosting radiance by giving skin a dewy glow
  • Improving skincare absorption – products absorb better when skin is hydrated
  • Refreshing skin during hot weather
  • Soothing irritated skin by adding barrier-boosting hydration

When to Use Facial Mist in Your Skincare Routine

The best time to apply face mist is immediately after cleansing – preferably to damp skin. This enables the mist’s humectants to pull this additional moisture into the skin, amplifying the plumping effect. It also preps skin for the rest of your skincare routine by increasing hydration to boost product absorption.

You can also use facial mist throughout the day to refresh, soothe, and boost hydration. Pro tip: follow a midday spritz of facial mist with a hydrating sunscreen – such as our NEW Zinc Sheer Mineral Sunscreen – to boost hydration, improve absorption, and lock in moisture.

More Ways to Use Facial Mist

  • Spritz in between layers of makeup to seal in moisture and create a dewy finish
  • Need a lighter moisturizer during the summer months? Mix in some facial mist to create a lighter texture.
  • Store it in the fridge. Spray chilled facial mist to flushed skin to cool, soothe and refresh.
  • Use it as a silicone-free setting spray
  • Apply after sun exposure to rehydrate skin. If you’ve suffered a burn, top with 100% Squalane Oil to soothe and restore hydration.
