For good skin, you need hy­dra­tion and nu­tri­ents like min­er­als and an­tiox­i­dants. For great skin, you need all that pumped into it all through the day.

Why mois­turise only twice a day when you can sat­u­rate skin with hy­dra­tion through­out the day?

How do you give your skin a con­stant sup­ply of what it needs? You spritz on a skin­care mist ev­ery one or two hours. The the­ory: Why limit your skin to get­ting the good stuff only twice a day when you ap­ply mois­turiser, if you can top it up reg­u­larly in­stead? It’s the skin equiv­a­lent of eat­ing small meals through­out the day to keep your en­ergy lev­els up.

Says Lily Kew, founder of home-grown or­ganic beauty brand Kew Or­gan­ics: “Mists are in­be­tween a serum and an essence, with in­gre­di­ents like hyaluronic acid to plump skin, and aminorich and repar­a­tive ex­tracts to strengthen col­la­gen and elastin.”

Sophia Chan, co­founder of Maiko, the exclusive dis­trib­u­tor of Aus­tralian skin­care brand Can­vas, says mists pro­tect skin from the dry­ing ef­fects of out­door heat and air-con­di­tioned rooms. “They also give your skin that dewy look,” she adds.

On top of that, the mol­e­cules in a mist are so tiny that you can use the prod­uct over makeup, to set it and make it last longer, says Kew.
