Is there something misting in your face routine? Maturing is realizing that no matter how our skin is behaving at the moment, a face mist is always a good idea.

Many of us are focused on simple and effective routines, which is important! But as the largest organ, our skin is constantly in a state of turnover and renewal. That requires hydration.

Sometimes, keeping a skin care routine simple means adding 1 little element to make it complete. Here are 5 face mist benefits that make a perfect complement to any skin type or skin care regimen.


What Makes a Face Mist?

We admit that a face mist does just look like a fancy face water bottle…but we promise, it’s so much more than that! A face mist is a super-efficient way to give skin what it’s craving – hydration, antioxidants, and glow. Unlike just spritzing water on the face, a beneficial face mist should be made up of nutrient-rich ingredients like hyaluronic acid or glycerin to boost lasting hydration.

We could think of a face mist as a second cousin to serum. It’s more liquid in nature but just as beneficial and nutrient-rich, except even more versatile. A great face mist can be applied any time of day or night on clean or made-up skin. It should also feel refreshing and pleasant (never greasy, heavy, or irritating).

It's all in the design. When we compare a face mist to other liquid-based skin care steps in our routines, the design and formulation of the product truly set a face mist apart.

5 Face Mist Benefits

Let’s talk about why we’d choose to add a face mist to our routines.

First, a face mist is non-irritating (save for any individual allergies or skin conditions). Most face mists have simple product formulas and include only soothing and hydrating ingredients that are usually compatible with a variety of skin types.

Face mists are a fast track to infusions. As we mentioned, a face mist is similar in nature to a serum because the formulation is infused with positive skin-supportive ingredients like vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, and even AHAs. It’s a bit of a skin care cheat because it allows us to soak in some of the good stuff without the effort of a 5- or 10-step routine.

A face mist is also super versatile and multi-purpose. It can be used on clean skin to provide a bit of extra hydration when needed. We can prime with a face mist before serum, moisturizer, or SPF. Face mist works as a midday pick-me-up, a “healthier” makeup setting spray, a great way to refresh the skin after cleansing, or as a boost layer when applying sleep or sheet masks.

Combo and oily skin types may be giving us the side-eye right now, but face masks are all-skin type-compatible! There are plenty of face mists formulated with oil-absorbing and balancing ingredients included. Look for florals and herbs such as lavender, rosemary, nettle, rose, or peppermint.

With those lovely, natural ingredients in mind, a face mist acts as both a physical boost for the skin and an emotional boost via aromatherapy. Many face mists have ingredients for aromatherapy effects. This might be a floral or herb included that not only addresses a skin concern but provides a calming, rejuvenating impact on the mood.

Finally, face mists fill the gap between skin care steps in a nearly effortless way. They add additional nutrition to routines that skip serum and additional hydration to routines that skip toner, priming spray, or setting spray. They also add additional balance to regimens that are adjusting to seasonal weather shifts. Basically, face mist is that girl.
