Recently, there has been a ‘thing’ with layering up with various skincare products for an ideal skincare regimen. The claim here is that you can customize your skincare regimen in a way that is perfect for you and your skin type. Pixi by Petra has introduced the new ritual of multi-misting highlighting their new facial mists into the skincare world. I dig it.
What is Multi-misting?
Multi-misting is the idea of taking a couple of facial mists with different benefits and layering them at the same time or at different times throughout the day to hydrate, protect and soothe your skin. It’s great for people who find that their skin needs extra TLC during the day, or they prefer to spray on their skin care goodies during their routine.
Cool, talk to me about Pixi’s mists and how they work.
So Pixi has 4 mists that range from adding a glow, hydrating, soothing, and protecting your skin and makeup. They are the Hydrating Milky Mist, Makeup Fixing Mist, Glow Mist, and Vitamin Wakeup Mist. As their name suggests they each have their own benefits alone, but could be so much better together. Before we get into some of my suggested winning combos, let’s talk about what they each do, on their own.
- Hydrating Milky Mist: This mist is all about moisturizing your skin. It’s a lightweight moisturizer that can be used evening and night and even throughout the day to keep skin moisturized and refreshed. It has a combo of hyaluronic acid (to plump skin by trapping moisture), black oats with provitamin A (to help promote the skins natural moisturizing ability), linoleum acid, and vitamins B1, B2, and B6 that are all known for their benefits in helping to hydrate skin.
- Makeup Fixing Mist: As its name suggests, this mist is all about setting your makeup to prolong its wear. It’s made with green tea and rose water to help with hydrating and balancing the skin. You can wear this mist before after or anytime to prolong your beat, smooth out your beat, and refresh your beat.
- Vitamin Makeup Mist: A toner is what you’ll get with this mist. This toner is all about waking up your skin. As with the other mists, you can use this before makeup and your moisturizer, after your makeup and anytime to tone, hydrate, and refresh skin. This mist is made with orange blossom, citrus fruit extracts, lavender, and arginine to tone and wake up your skin.
- Glow Mist: The glow mist is packed with so many oils (21 to be exact), you can see it. This mist is all about creating glowing, luminous, and a smooth complexion. Along with the oils you get propoils, aloe vera, and fruit extracts. You can use this mist before, after, and anytime as well to hydrate, protect, set, and add a glow anytime your complexion is having a dull moment.
Pixi by Petra suggested combos:
Vitamin Wakeup Mist + Hydrating Milky Mist
This combo works together to create invigorated and hydrated skin. It is the perfect combo for tired (and hungover) skin.
Makeup Fixing Mist + Glow Mist
This combo is perfect for your after makeup skincare regimen. After you do your makeup, use the Makeup fixing mist to set your beat. When you feel like your beat needs a boost use the Glow Mist to moisturize and add a glow to your look.
My suggested combos:
Hydrating Milky Mist + Makeup Fixing Mist
Start with the Hydrating Mist to hydrate your skin before you apply your makeup and use the Makeup Fixing Mist to set your makeup. During the day refresh your makeup with the Hydrating Mist – this is a perfect on the go mist and can fit in your bag easily.
Vitamin Wakeup Mist + Glow Mist
The Vitamin Wakeup Mist could serve as a starter for your skincare regimen overall and period. In this combo, accelerate your glow by waking up your skin with the Vitamin Wakeup Mist and then follow up with the Glow Mist after you moisturize. During the day, use the Glow Mist to add moisture and a glow as needed.
