The method of moisture hydration your face is important to consider. While you’ll certainly get wet by dunking your head in a bowl of water or under the shower, you wont get the penetration necessary to truly achieve hydration. By using something like a misting bottle, water is separated into small particles with a tiny diameter, allowing the H2O to “pass through the gaps” between skin cells and layers.
This increases the water content in the skin, repairing dry areas and softening overall. It is recommended using “non-charged water particles” to spritz your visage. Apparently this plays an important role in maintaining the moisture in your skin. There are many spritz water products in market for face hydration, but your could potentially save your money by just buying a spritz bottle and and invest in a jug of distilled water for your spritz routine.
Distilled water has been stripped of contaminants and minerals so it’s even better for your skin. It’s a really pure form of water, without salts and impurities, and is used as the base for most cosmetics, during surgery and in machinery to avoid corrosion. Scientists have found that skin elasticity improved after a spritz with water.
When you are outside or travelling, you can also bring and use your nano spray or spritz bottle with distilled water to make sure your skin stay hydrated.
Tap water usually has high pH (ranging from 8.5-10) due to inorganic mineral contents such calcium, magnesium & iron. We’ve know that washing your face with water that has high pH is not the best. “Calcium is a mineral often found in hard water that’s particularly damaging to skin, and has been known to worsen conditions such as eczema, acne, or rosacea,” Jeremy Fenton, a dermatologist in New York City shared. “The heavy metals in some water—like iron, copper, lead, and zinc—may further interact with natural skin oils and cosmetic moisturizers to clog pores and lead to breakouts.” The chlorine in tap water can strip moisture out of your skin, making your skin loose its elasticity. This is what we usually refer to as ‘tight feeling’ after washing our face.
Washing your face using distilled water can improve the skin condition. The distilled water is better than normal tap water at dissolving impurities on our skin, even soap residue from facial cleanser. Once you have clean and unclogged pores, your skin is more than ready to receive the benefits of facial products that you applied after washing your face. Products will be absorbed better and your skin will feel the difference. “Washing with distilled water can be helpful for people with very sensitive skin, especially if you are in a new environment for a short time,” says Michele Farber, a dermatologist with Scweiger Dermatology Group in New York City. “This gets rid of metals in tap water that can cause one’s oils to clog pores and flare acne.”
When washing your face using Distilled water, spray the water on your face before applying facial cleanser and also before apply any moisturiser or toner, you can spray the water on your face.
