Why do you need face sprays, what to look for in the composition and which ones to buy

Spray (or thermal water) for the face is a must-have in a cosmetic bag and at home. It perfectly refreshes the face and helps to invigorate, and also moisturizes, nourishes, and gives radiance. Another plus – the product can be applied both before and after makeup, the cosmetics will not smudge. But among the huge variety of sprays, choosing the right one, says Ekaterina Lyutikova, dermatocosmetologist and expert Arcaya, is not so easy. You should always pay attention to the composition and main properties of the product. There are also nuances in use. Read about all this in the article BeautyHack.ru.

About the properties and composition of thermal water

“Thermal water helps to restore the pH level, moisturize the skin, neutralize the hardness of tap water,” explains Ekaterina Lyutikova, dermatologist and expert at Arcaya. – When choosing thermal water, you need to pay attention to the composition. A common misconception is that thermal water is perceived exclusively as “life-giving moisture” for the skin and therefore it does not matter what exactly is included in the composition. However, be aware that if thermal water contains components such as potassium, calcium, magnesium, it is only suitable for oily and problem skin. The use of thermal water with such a composition for dry skin is excluded, since these components (salts) can take additional moisture from the surface of the skin, the opposite effect in the form of tightness will be obtained.

The best ingredients in thermal water that are suitable for everyone – hyaluronic acid, glacial water, aloe vera extract… These ingredients have moisturizing and protective properties.

How to apply thermal water

– It is necessary to apply water from a distance of 10-15 cm (it can be increased up to 30 cm), – Ekaterina Lyutikova continues. – The scheme for applying thermal water, both on a cleansed face and over makeup, is simple: spray the product, wait a couple of minutes and blot the excess with a napkin. It is important not to allow the spray on the face to completely dry out.

If you want to enhance the effect of moisturizing and nourishing the skin, apply over the thermal water (until it dries) with the usual moisturizers – serum, cream, mask. This will provide a deeper penetration of the active ingredients.

And most importantly: when using thermal water in direct sunlight, do not wait until the product dries completely, as water droplets act as a mini-magnifier and can cause burns.
