This is not your typical DIY setting spray recipe.
I’m not going to tell you to mix up some rosewater and glycerin and expect you to believe that it will set your makeup on a hot, humid summer day. It won’t!
Don’t get me wrong — a DIY setting spray made with glycerin has its place. (I wrote a post about one, after all.) I love glycerin for its hydrating, dewy finish, and it works well when the temperature is cold or mild.
“Acid” is not typically a word synonymous with hair health — but it should be.
You’ve likely heard of the lemon juice and sunlight trick for lightening hair. When used together, they work to oxidize the pigments in your strands, subtly lightening without bleach or a trip to the salon.
The flip side is that the harsh combination of heat, UV light, and high acidity leaves strands dehydrated and crunchy, not to mention damaged.
There’s a reason why there are so many options on the face mist market. Whether you’re looking to hydrate your skin or set your makeup, there’s something extremely refreshing about spritzing your face.
Judging by the price tag of mineral water in an aerosol can, it’s clear that brands know this too.
That being said, finding a mist that hydrates, nourishes and soothes skin (while giving your makeup extra staying power) is easier said than done. This is especially true for those who are sensitive.
