One of the most amazing components of skin care is how unique it is to each person. Sometimes a particular product can work wonders for someone else and do absolutely nothing for your skin. That’s why individualized regimens are so important, as is layering products specific to your personal skin care needs.
One underrated way you can tailor your routine to get the most out of your products is multi-misting. Just like it sounds, it’s the process of layering various facial mists with benefits (at the same time or throughout the day) to combat common skin care woes or increase your hydration levels instantly. “Each layer of mist adds something to the skin, whether it causes a plumping effect, a dewy effect or a protective effect,” explains board-certified dermatologist Dr. Jessica Weiser.
Echoing that statement, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Hadley King says, “Most mists can be layered because there aren’t ingredients that are fragile like retinoids and there aren’t many with ingredients like salicylic acid that can deactivate other ingredients.” Plus, “facial mists offer a way to deliver ingredients to your skin in one of the lightest vehicles possible — so that can be a very nice choice when the weather is hot and humid,” she adds.
Have multiple issues you’re looking to tackle in the most gentle way possible? Then multi-misting just may be for you. Ahead, we’ve compiled some of our favorite facial mist pairings for radiant and well-protected skin.
