Since we all don’t have the same skin type, not all products can be used on us all and not all face mist is considered equal in any way. So then, what is face mist? and which are the best products for you.
There are many types and brands out there and not all are going to work the same with everyone. While some can seem to feel like an energy boost shot, there has been others that feel as if you just sprayed some water on your face and left it to dry. Check with your dermatologist if you have no idea where to start with your skin type. Be advised that not all face mist is good for the skin and some can actually cause some negative effects. I am glad to share with you about what is face mist? and which are the best products for you!
Although this is not necessary, facial mist can bring beneficial effects to your skin care routine. It all depends on the ingredients in the mist. Benefits can include added hydration, improved absorption of moisturizer, a radiant glow and smoother application of makeup in a form of a spray, how easy!!
Also, alcohol dries up the skin! So please avoid that ingredient if you can!
*Best Face Mist For Your Type Of Skin*
Oily or Acne Prone Skin- According to Dr. Papantoniou “Face mists that are oil and silicone free should be used to prevent clog pores and oil build-up”. She goes on to say “Face mists rich in antioxidants such as green tea are also helpful in reducing inflammation associated with acne”. Rose water and aloe-based mists are largely effective in reducing inflammation and soothing people with acne-prone skin.
