Taking the time out to cleanse your skin in the morning time can be somewhat of a hassle, especially if you are on the go every day. However, a new quick, easy and beneficial tribute you must add to your skincare regimen is a top facial tonic mist. Yes, it is a must-have in times of harsh weather and long days. It provides you and your skin with a pick-me-up unlike any other cosmetic you have in your bag.
As part of my holistic lifestyle, I personally use Agave Facial Tonic Lotion. It's sensational as a therapeutic and hydration mist. The tantalizing aroma is just perfect for arousing the senses, particularly when I'm down in the dumps or just painfully frustrated. The makers over at Agave skincare loaded orange, lemon and sugar maple extracts in my bottle. These chosen ingredients have anti-inflammatory qualities and antioxidants to make me look like a model (fresh at all times) and feel like a million dollars.
Tonic mists are different from plain water, which can dry your skin. Most are made with specific hydrating ingredients that can be used on all skin types. One misconception about hydrating mists is that people with oily skin don't need added hydration. This is not true. In fact, oily skin is an indication that you need to hydrate. Be careful when picking a brand though. You see, not all manufacturers use the same ingredients, therefore, the effects will not be the same either. Continue reading to learn the benefits of why you need a tonic mist in your life.
pH balance – Tonic mists fight to keep your skin at its natural pH levels. Potential hydrogen (pH) is a number, which measures how acidic or alkaline a particular liquid is. Normally, any number above seven is alkaline and what's below seven is acid. Water has a pH level of seven. Your skin has a level of around 5.5. Balancing the acidic levels help hold moisture in your skin.
Hydrates and Refreshes - As a refreshing hydrating tonic, Agave Facial Tonic Lotion helps to condition the skin, leaving it supple and touchable. Before you use the Tonic Lotion, clean your skin with a soap free foaming gel cleanser like the AgaveSpa Cleansing Gel. You want to remove all impurities without disturbing the skin's natural pH balance.
Prepares the skin – Applying a Tonic mist helps prep the skin to absorb ingredients from other products. This way you can get the most of your skincare products while keeping your skin healthy and safe.
Below are some more tonic mist benefits to keep in mind.
- Sets your makeup so that you look reinvigorated all day after sitting in a stuffy or too cold office for 8-10 hours
- Helps to keep your skin hydrated so it fights flaky, dry skin
- Its moisturizing qualities prevents dryness in winter months
- It's enlivening so it's awesome for travel. A tonic mist will assist in keeping you alert and prevent that look of exhaustion after a 12-hour flight
Having said all of this, do you see why you need a facial mist in your life?
