Let's Talk: Toning Mists
Toning mists are similar to toners in that they refresh, tone and hydrate the skin, alleviating any irritation or tightness that cleansing causes. The only difference is that they come in mist/spray form and can also be used as a multi purpose product that can go over top of make up as refresher. There are different types of toning mist as there are toners but they all have the same common goal which is to prepare skin for the rest of your skincare routine.
Most commonly found ingredients in toning mists are Vitamin E, Rosewater/Rosehip and Hyaluronic Acid. These are used to soothe, refresh and hydrate the skin as well as aiding preparation for any serum or moisturiser you place over top. Most toning mists are a very fine spray that don't drench the skin but aren't that pathetic that it feels like it's not doing something. Others come in aerosol form but personally I find them a little less effective than a general mist formula. Quite a few brands have their own take on toning mists both high street and high end but there are some still quite prominent brands that haven't caught onto it yet and here are a few of my favourites.
Now no matter whether you choose a mist or aerosol formula, toning mists take out the need for a liquid toner and save time during your skincare routine. You don't have to spend the earth to find a decent toning mist on the market but if you do like to spend that bit more then there are plenty of higher end versions that work wonders on the skin. If you feel your skincare routine is missing something I highly recommend you have a look around at the toning mists, you might just find what you're looking for.
