5 unexpected ways to use face mists

At Jurlique, we love a good face mist. Our Rosewater Balancing Mist, packed with the extract of our exclusive Jurlique Rose, has been one of our most popular products for years, and our range of mists has gained a loyal following of beauty enthusiasts the world over. As the post-cleanse step, our face mists are known for their hydrating and soothing properties and are a skin care ritual essential. But did you know that our Mists do more than hydrate the skin and can also be used throughout the day, outside of your skin care ritual? Read on for five unexpected ways to use a facial mist.

Refreshing makeup

Yes, our Mists can be used over your makeup without smudging it or causing it to run. If your foundation and concealer tend to look dry or flaky towards the end of the day, or you want a dewy look, spritz a hydrating Mist onto your face throughout the day. By giving your skin this moisture boost, you’ll prevent it (and your makeup) from drying out, helping to keep it looking fresh for as long as you need it to.

Enhancing makeup pigments

Speaking of makeup, lightly spraying your makeup brushes and sponges with your favourite facial spray can help deepen the pigments of products such as eyeshadow, blush and highlighting powders. This technique helps to enhance the drama and vibrancy of your look and can reduce the amount of product you need to use.

Cooling the skin

During summer on hot, humid days, or winter, if you’re exposed to a lot of central heating, our skin can sometimes feel like it needs a bit of cooling down. Use your face mist throughout the day to refresh and cool it. It will help soothe your skin upon contact and have a fresh, cooling effect as it evaporates.

Reducing redness

Some of our Mists are targeted to specific skin concerns. Our Calendula Redness Rescue Calming Mist is specially formulated with soothing ingredients that target skin sensitivity and dehydration. Enriched with Calendula, Chamomile and Aloe Vera Leaf extracts, our Calendula Redness Rescue Calming Mist soothes dry skin, and helps to restore softness, hydration and calm red skin on the face.

Controlling shine

A face mist might not be the first product you think of when you want to control shine. But oiliness and shine can be byproducts of your skin overcompensating for dehydration by producing excess oil. Hydrating facial mists can help regulate oil production, as they prevent moisture loss and support the skin’s natural protective moisture barrier. If you have oily or blemish-prone skin, applying a face mist can help balance the skin and keep excess shine at bay.
