The story goes like this: While the ancient Romans would bathe in rosewater, Cleopatra would quench her face in this exceptional essence of rose to keep her complexion flawlessly beautiful.
In this article you will find what does a rosewater mist do for your skin & how to make your very own rosewater mist at home.
A hydrating mist is used for moisturizing facial skin lightly. Though, it’s not a must for a great skin care regime, however, it’s in fact a useful additional step that can help your skin in many ways. More importantly, it makes the other skin care products perform better.
Hydrating Mist Benefits & Uses
Before I share with you the steps of making your own rosewater hydrating mist, let us first discuss why & what for you can use a hydrating mist:
(i) Easily hydrate your skin all through the day, with or without makeup.
(ii) To get better hydration, try layering hydrating mist under your moisturizer. It’s done like this – First spray the hydrating mist on your face, immediately thereafter, without allowing the mist to dry out, apply a good quality moisturizer of your choice. This way you lock in the water droplets, which will provide your facial skin a much better hydration.
(iii) Some makeup artists opine that using hydrating mist in between the layers of makeup helps the makeup appear more natural & smoother. It makes the other beauty products sink in & adhere to the skin completely. However, the most prevalent method of using a hydrating mist is to simply spray once at the end of your makeup application so as to remove the powder finish. I suggest that you try this because your makeup will certainly appear better and less cakey.
