Any type of hydrating mist used during the day in efforts to hydrate our skin actually disrupts and weakens the barrier of our skin and allows more water to evaporate than to be retained.

Ironically, this effort is not effective and will only decrease topical water levels. So stop misting your skin, out of the blue, in an attempt to hydrate your skin.

What Is A Hydrating Spray Used For?

Maintaining a proper skin barrier means that we must use a lipid or oil-rich moisturizer on top of hydrated/misted skin, in order to trap the water underneath. Try to leave this barrier in place to the best of your ability. I realize we all must eat and some of us have a tendency to touch our faces and wipe our mouths more often than others, but minimizing this keeps our moisturizers in place so it can do its job of keeping our skin hydrated.

This oil residue layer from our moisturizer supports our natural barrier and is paramount to skin hydration and even depends entirely on it’s presence.

Which Hydrating Mist Is Best?

If your skin is parched and dry by mid-day then consider finding more effective products altogether.

I have my version of a “hydrating mist” included in my Origin Sets, but you must use it WITH a serum and then a barrier restoration butter on top to help your skin retain all the water. So do this layering sequence, then leave it alone.
