Do you use face mist in your skin care regimen?
Face mists do more than just supply a boost of hydration. Some offer soothing benefits and revitalize a dull complexion, while others help calm irritation and strengthen the skin barrier.
Whenever my skin feels extra parched, a face mist can always revive my skin and get rid of dry patches. Keep reading for a guide to using face mists and a list of mists that suit different skin concerns.
How to incorporate a face mist in your routine
There are different ways to use a face mist. Spritz it as a midday refresher or whenever your skin feels dry or tight. You can also keep one on your work desk to instantly perk up tired-looking skin.
Face mists work perfectly as toners. For maximum hydration, don’t just use it as a moisturizing toner. Layer the face mist in between your ampoule, serum and moisturizer, and add a final spritz at the end of your routine to seal in extra moisture.

Remember to allow the face mist to absorb into the skin after each spray. Gently pat your skin after applying to help it absorb quicker and work its way into your skin.
Face mists to battle dryness
For those with a dry or dehydrated complexion, go for face mists that contain powerful humectants, such as glycerin and hyaluronic acid, as well as antioxidants to protect skin from environmental stressors.
Pyunkang Yul’s Mist Toner is a perfect addition to a skin care routine for dry skin. Formulated with butylene glycol, glycerin and sodium hyaluronate, this mist toner provides instant hydration. The fragrance-free formula also makes it a great option for those who prefer scentless products.
Face mists to soothe irritated skin
For skin prone to redness, blemishes or inflammation, it’s essential to use a face mist that is loaded with skin-soothing ingredients. Look for ingredients like green tea, allantoin, rose water, aloe vera, oat extract or niacinamide.
Falling Into The Rose Mist from Korean skin care brand SIORIS is a light and refreshing mist ideal for irritated or sensitive skin. Containing organic ingredients including green tea water, cypress leaf extract, and a blend of plant-based squalane, argan oil and sunflower seed oil, this rose mist not only hydrates but it also soothes any redness or irritation.
Face mists to reinforce the skin barrier
To keep your skin barrier strong and healthy, use ceramide-infused skin care like the Balancium Comfort Ceramide Cream Mist from COSRX. This mist is formulated with six different kinds of ceramide that repair and strengthen the skin barrier.
For a mist that helps the skin barrier and improves elasticity at the same time, give NEOGEN’s Probiotic Youth Repair Mist a go. This probiotics-infused water-oil mist deserves a spot on your shelf to keep fine lines and wrinkles at bay. It’s also effective in preventing the appearance of premature aging.
