This DIY hydrating face mist is refreshing on it’s own or over makeup. Try using it in place of MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ to blend the look of setting powder!
Welcome to Part II of my favorite skincare products! I’ve also included a DIY hydrating face mist. Facial mists are currently all the rage, and I’m seeing them sold on sites like Sephora for upwards of $50. If you wear makeup, this is a great dupe for Mac Prep + Prime Fix+. It helps blend everything together as a final step for a seamless, non-powdery look. I love bringing it on flights; it’s a drink of water for my face when I’m being blasted with stale, dry air.
If you haven’t already, I highly recommend reading Part I before continuing. The intro is especially relevant to everything below.
To recap: I have dry/dehydrated/sensitive skin with acne rosacea on my chin. I’m focused on anti-aging and having fun at a reasonable price point. In Part I, I reviewed my favorite cleansers, moisturizers and sunscreens. Here, we’re diving into the actives and extras, which I divided into a few arbitrary subcategories:
- Toners, Exfoliants & Essences
- Vitamin C & Retinoids
- Serums & Facial Oils
Note: Do NOT use any actives without also wearing sunscreen. Many of these, especially retinoids and chemical exfoliants, make your skin more sensitive to UVA and UVB rays.
