Facial mists or Superfood sprays have certainly become a firm favorite throughout the recent years. They offer a multitude of benefits for every user: a quick and simple pick-me-up during the hot Summer season, a refreshing toner before slathering on your most-reached-for moisturizer, or a trusty makeup spray that not only keeps make-up input but also provides the skin with an instant burst of hydration.
The word ”Superfood” has definitely been ”the star of the show” within the fitness, health and wellbeing world. From the variety of nutritious healthy snacks available at our local supermarket to tubs of power-formed rich leafy greens and tasty dark berries that offer oodles of health benefits, it was only a matter of time that the word ”Superfood” was implemented into the skin care industry.
Elemis, a brand renowned for its state-of-the-art formulations and luxurious, pampering spas across the globe have introduced an excitable range powered by the mighty Superfoods. This intriguing range offers a family of inviting skin treatments to provide a fresh, radiant outdoor-glow that could only be obtained from a day away out the office.
It’s interesting to learn that only 40% of Brits spend a total of 15 minutes outdoors a day. Poor lighting, a lack of fresh air can affect the way our skin looks and feels, our complexion becomes dull, congested, and lack-lustred, showing the signs of poor nourishment. I must admit to myself that enjoying the fresh-breeze of air outside on a warm, summers day is somewhat a struggle for me. Working long hours indoors where the constant flow of air-conditioning exhales throughout the building is the only way my skin is getting close to “real” fresh air.
Something completely unexpected from the leading British spa brand, Introducing the Elemis Superfood Ketir-Tea Priming, Toning & Setting Face Spray. An interesting, but veggie-powered facial mist that offers so much more than your ”regular thermal spring water spray”. This exciting extension to the Superfood line is something that will for sure excite Elemis fanatics.
With a soothing, hydrating base of aloe leaf juice, refreshing coconut water and glycerin for its moisture-absorbing qualities, this super-charged refining mist doesn’t cut corners when skin-loving, active ingredients are at concern. Before we dive into the rest of the key ingredients, let’s have a little educational talk about the word “Kefir” and what benefits this ingredient has on the skin.
A prebiotic-boosting ingredient that’s rich Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium bifidum, two good bacteria’s that supports the skin’s natural barrier from inflammation. Since becoming a key ingredient within the vast selection of Korean beauty, this natural antidote of fermentation goodness soothes and restores one’s concerning complexion. It’s mind-blowing to learn that how one ingredient can have a multitude of skin benefits.
We also have the magic of Rooibos Tea extract, a “goldmine ingredient” that contains an array of skin-reviving minerals to replenish and repair common skin concerns such as eczema and blemished-skin.
The final key ingredient, and one that likes to keep a low profile is carrot seed oil, a rich-moisturising oil that adds a welcoming sheen of radiance to the skin, but that’s not it, this earthy aroma oil contains Vitamin A and Pro-Vitamin A that supports natural cell turnover for a fresher, less fatigue-looking complexion.
As you spritz the product onto the face, you will feel a light, delicate haze of product that rapidly disappears without a single trace. I like to keep this in my backpack for when I’m feeling a little overheated or flustered-looking during the day. A simple spray or two offers that perfect potion of energy and hydration our skin craves on that afternoon slump.
I’m really pleased that Elemis are using their renowned creativity and launching such eye-catching products, like this Superfood Kefir-Tea facial mist. If you’re a fan of uplifting, light nurturing scents then this latest creation from Elemis will have you weak at the knees. Enough of the temptation, I’ll leave you to decide whether this must-have facial mist will be making its way into your skincare routine.
