Face mists have quietly become a staple in skincare routines worldwide. Beyond their refreshing allure, face mists hold a secret: they’re more than just water. These delicate concoctions infuse your skin with hydration and nutrients, can fix your makeup, and make your skin glow. In this blog post, we’ll explain the benefits of face mists, explore the best ingredients, their effectiveness, and how to incorporate them into your skincare routine. We’ll also help you choose the best hydrating face mist.  

What Is Face Mist?

Face mist is a lightweight, water-based spray infused with skin-loving ingredients. It's versatile, serving multiple purposes: prepping the skin, setting the makeup, and providing on-the-go hydration. Face mists hydrate your face and may have antioxidant properties in addition to giving it a boost. They also help with skincare absorption when applied afterward. 


The advantages don't end there. Because the atmosphere in an airplane is considerably dryer than on land, face mists can also be used there, followed by moisturizing masks. They're also a fantastic supplement to hikes and other outdoor activities to help with increased hydration. Some might have niacinamides, soothing antioxidants that can help prevent sun damage and redness.  

How to Use Face Mists?

Because face mists are so practical and simple to use, you can use them whenever you feel like your skin needs a pick-me-up or an extra dose of moisture. Since face mist is lightweight and helps create a more occlusive seal that helps lock in moisture, it should be sprayed in the morning and at night before applying moisturizer. For extra moisture, you can spray it throughout the day over makeup and sunscreen.  

What Distinguishes a Toner From a Facial Mist?

Toners are usually used for extra skin balance and cleansing after cleansers, even though they can contain similar components and advantages. It is important to note that alcohol can aid in cleansing the skin, and toners frequently contain it. On the other hand, facial mist spray usually contains moisturizing substances like panthenol or aloe vera. Also, face mists can be used at any stage of your skincare regimen and are more hydrating in nature.   

The Best Ingredients for Hydrating Face Mists

Niacinamide (Vitamin B3)

Niacinamide, the unsung hero of skincare, strengthens the skin barrier. It works as a protective shield against environmental stressors. Research supports its role in reducing redness and pore size. According to Cleveland Clinic, niacinamide’s antioxidant properties may help protect your skin and aid its recovery from damage due to factors like aging, sun exposure, and stress. Some research has shown that topical niacinamide can improve fine lines, wrinkles, and skin sallowness.

Cica (Centella Asiatica)

Cica, also known as Centella Asiatica, soothes and heals damaged skin, making it a star ingredient in face mists. A study investigated the effects of 0.1% madecassoside (a component of the Centella Asiatica plant), combined with 5% vitamin C when topically applied to the skin of 20 female participants. After 6 months of use, there was a significant improvement in skin firmness, elasticity, and hydration.

Panthenol (Vitamin B5)

Panthenol, or Vitamin B5, is a humectant champion. It attracts and retains moisture, leaving your skin happily hydrated. Research backs its effectiveness in improving skin hydration. According to a 2016 study, dexpanthenol improves the suppleness and hydration of dry skin by increasing the mobility of proteins and lipids in the skin. In order to make up for decreased hydration, it also maintains or improves molecular fluidity. Additionally, it improves the skin's ability to absorb active substances included in topical products.


Allantoin, with its gentle exfoliating properties, promotes cell regeneration. Allantoin has strong soothing and hydrating capabilities, making it an effective compound for those with acne-prone skin, especially in combination with harsher ingredients commonly found in acne products. 


A recent study has also demonstrated that allantoin, with reduced dehydration linked to popular acne treatments, is more successful than other acne treatments at preserving your skin's ability to age healthily.

Aloe Vera

Aloe vera has long been celebrated for its skin-loving properties. When it comes to face mists, aloe vera takes center stage as a soothing, hydrating ingredient. It is also known to help increase cell regeneration and skin rejuvenation. Additionally, it helps fade spots. 


According to this study, aloe vera also acts on the fibroblast to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin fibers, thus enhancing skin elasticity and reversing the signs of aging, such as wrinkles.

Peptide Complex

Peptides, those tiny protein fragments, work wonders for our skin. They boost collagen production, improve elasticity, and reduce fine lines. Peptides have the ability to mend damaged skin, reduce inflammation, and even out skin tone. Certain peptides have the ability to destroy acne-causing bacteria because they are antimicrobial. Although this particular guide covers peptides generally, it emphasizes how beneficial they may be for the skin.  

Choosing the Best Face Mist

You’re standing in the skincare aisle, surrounded by an array of moisturizing face mists. Some smell like a bouquet of roses, while others mimic a tropical paradise. But what if we told you that the unscented option might just be the best choice for your skin?  


When selecting a face mist, consider your skin type, climate, and desired benefits. Look for mists that combine these powerhouse ingredients.   

Going Fragrance-Free 

Skin Sensitivity

  • Remember that time you tried a scented face mist, and your skin rebelled with redness and irritation? Fragrances can be harsh on sensitive skin, triggering allergic reactions. Unscented face mists are gentle and won’t disrupt your skin’s delicate balance.

Conflicting Fragrances

  • Have you ever layered a floral-scented mist over your vanilla-scented moisturizer? It’s like a fragrance battle royale on your face! Unscented mists work well with other products, ensuring harmony in your skincare routine.

Barrier Function Preservation

  • Fragrances can compromise your skin’s protective barrier. Unscented mists focus on hydration without disrupting this crucial shield.

Avoiding Hidden Irritants

  • Fragrances often contain hidden irritants like limonene and linalool. These can cause redness and inflammation.

Soothing and Calming

  • Unscented mists rely on ingredients like aloe vera and Centella asiatica. They soothe irritated skin and provide instant relief.

Face Mist Spray for Makeup

  • Makeup artists swear by unscented mists as the ultimate canvas prep. They hydrate without interfering with foundation application.

Setting Spray Magic

  • Unscented mists lock makeup in place without altering its scent. Your foundation stays put, and you smell like… well, you!
