Keeping cool with facial mists
Aren’t facial mists the best?
In the summer, whether in the city or at the beach, I always have one in my bag, for quick skin hydration on the go.
Facial mists provide your skin with an instant cooling effect when you have been in the sun, protect your skin from redness and sun irritations, have a calming and soothing effect for sensitive skin thanks to thermal water, a key ingredient in most sprays, plus I find they help revitalize the senses when you start feeling “sun drowsy”.
They come handy too when you want to clean your skin off sea salt after a swim. Just spray onto your face – if neccessary your body too – and enjoy cool and clear skin.
These are the latest five I have been using:
1. Eau Thermale, by Vichy
Pure simple and affordable thermal spa water mist, naturally rich in beneficial minerals and antioxidants. Easy and uncomplicated for all year-round.
2. Eau de Raisin, Grape water, by Caudalie
Organic grape water enriched with moisturizing polysaccharides and mineral salts, for an instant boost of hydration. Really great for sensitive and problematic skin. Excellent spray distribution too.
3. Eau de Beauté Beauty Elixir, by Caudalie
Organic facial mist with a little something extra. Inspired by Queen Isabelle of Hungary’s elixir of youth, this mist contains numerous essential oils which help with pore tightening and line smoothing. I find the amazing, almost retro scent of essential oils really helps when you feel nauseous or have travel sickness. The travel size is perfect for the handbag. Just remember to shake well before use, as the essential oils tend to concentrate at the top of the vial.
4. Serozinc, by La Roche-Posay
A really effective facial mist in case you are someone with sensitive or problem-prone skin or get breakouts or irritations in sun or sea water exposure. Excellent for soothing skin rashes, thanks to its key ingredient, zinc sulfate. I also wrote about this product here.
5. Body Line Thermal spray, by Babor
Although it’s called a body mist, this is actually a face & body spray with a relaxing delicate and refreshing scent. It makes you smell as if you have just finished a spa facial treatment. Rich in minerals and trace elements for skin hydration.
