True or False - will spritzing your face with water keep it hydrated?

On a hot day like today (Melbourne, 34 degrees C), will spritzing your face with water keep it hydrated? FALSE

What you're actually doing is assisting in the DEHYDRATION of your skin! Apparently, 'as the water evaporates off your skin it takes moisture with it'. I know….who would have thought!

So you need to find a spritzing product that contains humectants to keep the moisture in the skin. And to get the full affect try spritzing just before you moisturise.

Humectants (or moisturizers) are important cosmetic ingredients allowing to prevent loss of moisture thereby retaining the skin's natural moisture. Some compounds also have the ability to actively attract moisture.

As this year ends, I hope you all have a fabulous New Year and thank you for all your support! Keep watching this space for some exciting news ahead…..
