WHAT MAKES THE HYDRATION MIST SO AWESOME:
Sometimes a moisturizer isn’t enough to hydrate unbalanced skin! Why? Because your skin needs a balance of water and oils to stay balanced and keep it’s acid mantle intact (moisturizers only provide the oil portion of the equation). The skin’s acid mantle is your naturally protective layer of sebum. Without it, your skin (and system) is open to damage, infection, and oil imbalance.
Mists (and other hydrating products) provide the water part of the balanced skin equation. Dehydrated skin is different from simply dry skin. Dry skin can be cured with moisturizers. Dehydrated skin on the other hand, has a lack of water (not oils), and a moisturizer isn’t enough. That’s where my hydration mist comes in.
It is possible to have dry AND dehydrated skin. In fact, it’s common. But just as common is dehydrated OILY skin. My hydration mist and hydration serum are the answer to dehydrated skin! Start with one, and add the other if needed. See how to use a mist, serum and moisturizer together under the “how to use” section.
Dehydrated skin is a bad thing! It leads to all kinds of problems including break outs (see below), congested pores, poor circulation, and poor texture. It also means your natural acid mantle can’t do its job: protecting you!
My hydration mist is formulated to help you balance dehydrated skin once and for all!
IN A NUTSHELL:
- Provides instant relief for dehydrated skin
- Helps balance skin’s acid mantle to protect from excessive sebum production
- Promotes health a healthy balance that need water
- Aids in avoiding congestion and acne breakouts
- Gives the appearance of smoother looking skin
WHY ADD A MIST TO YOUR ROUTINE:
Mists, like serums, are a quick way to make sure your skin is getting the natural, targeted ingredients it needs to combat a particular problem. They are like a super healthy facial without all the fuss!
The reason mists work so well is that they are made up of natural ingredients that your skin recognizes and knows what to do with! Your skin readily absorbs mists deep into its layers – the layers where the ingredients can do their most beneficial work!
SHOULD I USE THE HYDRATION MIST OR HYDRATION SERUM?
- Start using the serum if you suspect the level of dehydration is severe. Start with the mist if you suspect the level of dehydration is mild.
- I generally suggest starting with one or the other (which ever your preference is). Then after a few weeks, if your skin needs an extra “drink”, add in the other to your routine (see how in the “how to use” section). Why do I say to start with your preference? Because you’ll be more likely to use it! ;)
- Additionally, the Hydration MIST has been infused with provitamin B5 and vitamin B3 - both of which have been proven to support the skin's natural healing functions, AND protect the skin from further damage!
- The Hydration Mist is best used by pairing it with a product that you'll apply over top of the mist. For example, one of my facial moisturizers, body balm, eczema ointment, or a serum. The serum can "stand alone" better than the mist can.
BUT BATTY I HAVE A QUESTION…
“But my skin is oily! The last thing I need is a hydration mist!” - Think again!! Often skin produces excess oil as a response to being dehydrated!
“But isn’t a moisturizer enough?” - Not always. Moisturizers don’t penetrate as deeply as a serum can. If your skin is dry even after moisturizing regularly, you need to add a serum to your routine.
“I can’t use this! I have acne prone skin!” - Actually, it might be just what your acne prone skin needs to balance itself! Many people break out due to dry skin! Why? Because when your skin is dry and flaky, there’s a huge increase in dead skin cells sitting on the top of your pores. Those dead skin cells clog up your pores when they block oils from exiting your pores (and tada! You have yourself a pimple!). By adding a hydrating serum or mist to your routine, the serum or mist can penetrate deep into the layers of your skin and hydrate the layers that your moisturizer hasn’t been able to reach. Follow up your serum or mist with a moisturizer and you’ll lock in all those hydrating ingredients. Your skin will drink it in and it will thank you! A serum or mist and moisturizer combo is to your skin what a refreshing glass of fresh squeezed lemonade is to you on a hot summer day! Aww, refreshing!
HOW TO USE MISTS:
A mist can easily be worked into any skin care routine. Simply use it after washing your face (hands, or other affected area), and before applying any serums, moisturizers, or ointments. Easy as that! Mists can even be layered if you’re looking to target multiple problems at once. Just a couple spritzes will do the trick. Just make sure it’s absorbed before you move onto the next step in your routine.

I love the hydration boost this gives me. I can't wait to try this by the pool in Florida! The scent is the only thing that I might want tweaked a bit but the benefits are worth it. I've got Rosacea so witch hazel is not the best for me. I was happy to find a mist that didn't have it. I'm probably going to buy two next time so I can keep one in my beach bag and one in he bathroom.
No more of that tight feeling when I use this product. My skin drinks it in. I love the scent and how it makes my skin feel. I find it really cuts down on the amount of moisturizer that I need. Will be buying more.
I got the hydration mist since Batty recommended having some sort of hydration in your routine. This is a great one to start with if you don't really have skin problems, or aren't sure yet (detoxing?). I will probably go with a more specific one next. I love it though, feels great on my skin. I always spritz and then moisturize right away.
I never thought that I could fall in love with something so simple. After washing my face (either with the charcoal CP soap or a scrub), I spritz this on, give it about a minute or two to soak it, then follow up with a moisturizer. I found that I have to have this even when I travel. My skin enjoys it. It has a pretty strong scent, and although I am typically sensitive to fragrances (which I know this isn't a "fragrance") I don't have ANY issues with it. Before I finished my first bottle, I went ahead and ordered a second...I love it that much! #battyforbattys
I really enjoyed using this product! The packaging is so nice, and the product sprays really well. The smell is very earthy, but I like it. My face always felt better after using this product. It also makes any serums or moisturizers spread easier if you use those products. I unfortunately needed more hydration than this product could give me, but I would definitely recommend it to anyone! My only complaint is that this product was gone too soon! Ha ha... But that's what happens when you're really enjoying using a product.
I love the ease of use of this product. My face always feels great after it's use and never feels tight. I would actually give this 4.5 stars because I only have one minor complaint-- the smell. It is not bad by any means, but I don't love it either. Luckily the scent goes away quickly after I spray.
I originally bought this mist to add some extra hydration to my facial routine, however I found another great way to use this product. Since I live in an extremely dry climate, after I shave my legs, the skin gets itchy. After shaving, I now spray the hydration mist and then moisturize. This has reduced my dry skin's itching dramatically. Thank you Batty!
I love this mist and use it a few times during the day. I find it very refreshing and I love the smell of it
I used up a whole bottle of this spray through the winter and thought to myself - "I don't need this again until next winter". I'm already wishing for more - for I love the added moisture and coolness this spray gave my skin. So - I'll be placing another order and soon! Thanks Batty
I really like this product. It's calming, it dries fast and leaves your skin looking nice and matte. Great if you have super dry skin in the winter like I do, but I'm also planning on using it instead of a moisturizer for daytime during the summer.
