Have you heard of a Hydrasol?

I was very lucky again to be published in this months Edge Magazine - The article is here for you to read below:

Facial mists are a product on the beauty market that most people just pass by in the shops or don’t even know they exist. These mists have spread in popularity and now contain all manner of formulations that calm, replenish, add radiance and even set your makeup in just one or two easy spritz. This product may be the easiest one to use on the market to date so no more excuses for not having the time to take care of your epidermis!

Sometimes your skin can just cry out for some instant hydration during the day and you may find a drop in the quality of your skin tone and texture especially during the summer months. In warmer weather a spray that is moisturising with some form of botanical extract or essential oil, known as a hydrosol, is the perfect choice of facial mist as it can refresh hot skin and soothe any redness or burns. It’s basically a herbal or floral water made especially potent by the extra infusions and works for all skin types to soften the skin and add a natural glow.

Rodial Dragon’s Blood Hyaluronic Tonic (100ml £33.00) is a great example of a hydrasol and gives an instant hit of moisture packed with soothing rose and Dragon’s Blood extract. This is a wonder for sensitive skin types with its hyaluronic formula that not only contains Vitamin B3 and zinc to even out your complexion and fine lines but also sets your makeup for up to 12 hours.  

Ole Henriksen African Red Tea Face Mist (100ml £26.00) is a hydrosol that is heavy in antioxidants and anti-aging properties that revitalises the skins surface. It has an unusual combination of white tea, pomegranate and African red tea that make the pores tighter and makes the skin have an instant dewy look. This mist is perfect for a pre-makeup pick me up or for those who want to keep that healthy glow all day long.

An alternative mist that is fruit based is the Caudalie Grape Water Soothing Moisturizing Spray (200ml £10.00). This is 100% organic and is extracted from grapes via osmosis and is perfect for all skin types including those with especially reactive skin. In one spray it floods the skins surface with vitamin C and potassium and helps it hold it with polysaccharides. If your skin is seriously dehydrated this is the wonder that will work best for you.

You can just pop any of these wonder products in your bag and it will hydrate your skin throughout the day easily and offers instant results. Have fun in picking the perfect mist for you and remember to nourish that skin of yours! 

Well I hope you liked it and found it helpful. If you do grab Edge magazine it's on page 21 :)
