“Essence mists add extra hydration to your skin, and help make all of your other skin care products work better, too.”
Ever heard of an essence mist? They’re our new on-the-go hero for keeping skin moisturized and glowing throughout the day. But what exactly are they, and how do they work?
What is an Essence Mist?
“Imagine trying to sop a spill with a sponge that’s hard and dried up—it’s just going to push the liquid around, not absorb it,” says Jeff Rosevear, founding scientist and Head of Product Development for Skinsei. “But if you slightly dampen the sponge first, it will be better able to absorb that spill.”
In this analogy, your skin is the sponge and an essence mist is that first hit of moisture you give it, so that it can better absorb any products (serum, moisturizer) you apply afterwards. Delivering just the lightest amount of hydration, an essence mist leaves your complexion instantly soft and supple, and ready for the next step in your routine.
Simply mist over your face, immediately post-cleansing, no need to rub in. They’re also great to pop in your bag and take with you on the go, you can easily spray over make-up to freshen up your skin, giving you’re a gorgeous, hydrated glow.
At Skinsei our essence mists also have the added benefit of shielding your complexion from skin-damaging pollution, acting like a barrier to keep those pesky particles from sticking.
At the end of the day, an essence mist is of the essence, both improving the look and feel of your skin, and ensuring all of the other skin care products that follow work more effectively. And really, who doesn’t want that?
