I hop you’re enjoying the enjoying the weather wherever you are! It’s that time when seasons are changing and that means our body and skin are going to react to these seasonal changes. In Seoul, Korea we are officially in fall! It’s probably last a month and then its going to be winter for like 5 months hahaha! But because of this we need to prep our skin so that we can be prepared for the cold and dry winter months. Just like the animals store food for winter, we have to store moisture in our skin.
Creams, oils, and thicker lotions should be routine in your fall skincare routine. I currently use almond oil instead of lotion. I have been using it all year actually and I love it! Also, I have been carrying around a mist in my bag to give my skin a burst of moisture throughout the day. Mists are on-the-go skincare that can give your skin and makeup a fresh finished look again. I’ve used mists that dried out my skin because all it was was water. It just evaporated off my skin taking whatever moisture I had in my skin too. For summer months a refreshing mineral water mist is great but for fall and winter consider using a moisturizing essence spray.
What is essence? Essence is a a liquid that has concentrated amounts of particular ingredients or ingredient. When you use a essence type mist you’re giving your skin the best nourishment compared to a water type one. Haha I feel like I’m talking about Pokemon… yes I am a Pokemon nerd.
ANYWAY! Do you absolutely need to use a mist? No. But if you have dryness throughout the day and already have dry skin you should consider trying it out. Here are some mists that I would recommend!
- Chanel Hydra Beauty Essence Mist
This is the creme-de-la-creme of mists in my opinion this goes for $90.00USD/120,00KRW! However, this stuff is amazing! This magic water spray has a powerful camellia moisturizing ingredient, and blue ginger antioxidant, vitamin C and E and hyaluronic acid. It’s a spa in a spray can.
- SK-II Mid-Day Miracle Essence Mist
I’m currently using this at the moment. SK-II is well know for their signature ingredient, Pitera. This mist is a combination of Pitera and a moisture lock complex that will keep your skin moisturized for up to 4 hours after spritzing. The very fine mist will penetrate though your makeup and deliver moisture goodness to the skin. It also has a midnight companion.This 50ml spray is 80.00USD/75,000KRW
- Caudalie Beauty Elixir
This grape essence spray is a mix of essential oils and active plant ingredients. This will also tone your skin to minimize pore size and stimulates mircocirculation. This one you have to shake before using it. There are two sizes you can choose from, 1.0oz or 3.5oz. The smaller on is 18.00USD/23,000KRW and the bigger one goes for 49.00USD/65,000KRW.
- Innisfree Green Tea mineral mist
I wasn’t going to put this one in because it more watery than the other ones I listed, but it’s still a good mist. The is a Korean brand mist. It is 89.7% green tea extract, and has amino acids and lots of minerals to keep your skin from drying out. This is a cheaper than the other ones, the 120ml fog spray is 14,00KRW that’s around 12.00USD.
Well that all for today! I hope this was helpful to you and got you somewhat interested in this beauty product. You can follow me on Instagram @ohmyglossblog and my Facebook page for daily updates and photos!
