How to use face mists

You’d be forgiven for thinking, ‘face mist’, one more product for the bathroom cabinet, really? Face mist is one of the most hard-working and versatile face products to have joined the mission to keep our mugs hydrated and fresh looking all day long. These beauties don’t have to leave your side come day or night, you can use them before or after moisturisers and makeup. They come into their own in the middle of the day when your face starts to feel dehydrated, especially if you’re in contact with aircon or dry atmospheres. They don’t need a time-consuming routine, you just spritz on, feel refreshed, and let them do their thing.

How do I use face mists?

They spray on evenly and are absorbed super quickly, so no hanging about for that freshy-hydrated dewy look when you’re in a hurry.

WOMAN SPRAYING FACE MIST

Face mists are with you every step of the day, just like a best friend. One of the cleverest things about them is that they can be spritzed on over makeup, and the benefits are two-fold. They can help set makeup in place and increase its lifespan. They’re a bit like that person that everyone loves, because they just crack on, demand no special treatment and get the job done no matter what circumstances they face. You could even give yours a name, we won’t tell.

Using a face mist couldn’t be simpler. Here’s some easy get-to-know-each-other instructions for you and your cheerleader. Always give your face mist a good shake before using it. Don’t forget to shut your eyes and mouth and don’t inhale. As much as we love them – they’re for external use only. Then hold about 15 to 20 cm away from your face and give yourself about five good squirts. Your face will lap up the mist like a thirsty plant, and you’ll enjoy a heavenly sprinkle feeling on your skin. Take care to wipe any excess off your eyes and mouth. If you feel any irritation at all to your eyes, rinse with cool water immediately and discontinue using.
