You may think it’s an unnecessary or superfluous step in your skincare routine, but facial mists are definitely having a moment right now — and for good reason! If you have yet to jump on the facial mist train, you’re definitely missing out.
According to NYC-based Holistic Esthetician Stephanie Lauren Brown, “ideally, [using a face mist right after cleansing] will do three things: Stop any residual cleanser left on your face from overdrying your skin, balance the pH levels of your skin . . . so that it’s neutral and can effectively absorb all the expensive products you’re using, and finally, when mixed with oil or serum, the water/mist molecules get trapped in the skin, which creates an effectively hydrated skin situation.”
So after cleansing, make sure to mist. And while you’re at it, mist again after applying you’re makeup. And again at lunch time. And again, once you hit the mid-afternoon slump. Basically, mist anytime ya dang well please to instantly refresh your senses.
