Are face mists still the good old alcohol-infused product that feels cool when you spray but in reality dries out the skin? While many of us assume a face mist is just overpriced scented water it's actually come a long way since its depleting days.
"Facial mists help to hydrate the superficial layers of the skin during the day while also providing nutrients. They help to prevent trans-epidermal water loss and hence drying of the skin. The increased hydration escalates the softness of the skin." says Dr Batul Patel, medical director and dermatologist, The Bombay Skin Clinic. "Although, the contents play a critical role. It is best avoided when they contain preservatives and alcohol which tend to irritate the skin. Also, avoid mists that contain formaldehyde, parabens or synthetic fragrances. The use is most beneficial during summers and in air-conditioned environments.", also warns Dr Patel.
We found one which has quite an advanced ingredient list: first free of alcohol, parabens, synthetic fragrances, mineral oils and all of the undesirable; second, contains a generous dose of lotus leaf extract which is antioxidant rich and real lemon extract that boosts skin and brightens. Other ingredients in the formula include aloe, camellia, allanation, betaine and black currant.
The Pure Lotus Jeju Lotus Leaf and Lemon Mist hydrates, protects and restores skin. On a warm day this formula not only provides instant cooling, it also helps balance and soothe skin because when we perspire skin is sensitized and the natural oils and moisture gets lost along with the sweat. Air-conditioned environment on the other hand has a drying effect on the skin which can weaken the skin barrier over time leading to a variety of skin concerns - a little pick me up with a few spritzes can save your skin from all those troubles. This product comes in a small packaging, is travel friendly and aerosol free which makes it a perfect companion to carry around in a hot summer day or keep it handy at the offices for a little replenishment whenever needed. Plus, it works with every skin type!
