FACIAL MISTS: ESSENTIAL OR EXCESSIVE?
It’s one of the most hotly debated topics in the beauty world. Are facial mists must-haves in your beauty routine or are they just bottles of overpriced, overhyped scented water?
Ok so let’s be honest, basic skincare routines should just include a cleanser, serum, moisturizer & sunblock. But as Qiyorro founder, Najla Alfardan points out, “toners, essence, balms & mists are also important if your skin needs that little bit extra.”
Today, mists are much more than fragranced water. They’re loaded with hydrating ingredients and enhanced with nutrients & antioxidants. Yet mists get a bad rap because they come with no rules. Ironically, though, that’s exactly what makes them so versatile. Whether you need a midday hydration fix, a post-workout beauty refresh or just a setting spray for makeup, mists do it all. And with more brands focusing on skin-concern specific mists, they now double up as acne-fighting, age defying superheroes.
