Water is crucial for our survival, whether it is internal or external. As we need to drink sufficient water for the body to function well, we need to replenish the hydration levels in the skin too. We cannot drink all the water we need in one hit. Similarly, we cannot give all the hydration the skin needs with a single spray.
Spray two to three times during the day to help the hydration levels in the skin. Periodic spritzing goes a long way in building the skin’s defences against modern day living.
This is the best skin protection against dehydration caused by air conditioners. Computer proximity and the heat it generates are also quite detrimental for skin hydration. These kind of exposures not only dehydrate, but also sensitise the skin in the long run. Over a period of time, this sensitivity increases the heat in the surface layers of the skin and gives it a reddish tinge. It also decreases the Natural Moisturising Factors (NMF) in the surface layers. Sprays can help to cool the superficial heat in skin tissues, reduce the dry discomfort and itch in the skin. This skin relief slows down the ageing process.
It is important to choose suitable toners for specific skin types. Some skins find reprieve in hydrating toners. Other skins love the sprays which relieve the dryness as well as dehydration.
Misting the skin helps to keep the skin supple. A supple skin offers great rescue remedy to the collagen structures which are constantly ravaged by time.
Spraying after cleansing also helps to facilitate better penetration of the moisturisers, as much as they help to rejuvenate the skin during the day.
On a lighter note, hydrating mists can give a refreshing touch up to make up during meetings and parties with a quick spray. Small sprays pumps sit secretly in many hand bags and clutches.
Modern day living has lots of conveniences at our fingertips. Spray mists and toners can be counted as one such blessing for the skin.
So spray, spray, spray
Listen to the skins pray!
