Facial mists are an absolute must for a redhead’s skincare routine. They are well worth your money and are incredibly versatile. They can be used to hydrate your skin, lock in moisture and act as a toner and makeup setting spray.
How to use a facial mist:
1. After cleansing, spray on the skin before applying moisturizer. This will help your moisturizer lock everything in and keep your skin hydrated.
2. Spray on your skin mid-day for a little refresher.
3. Add a little spray to your foundation brush before applying foundation. This will give your skin a dewy look that’s not too heavy.
