Going to the gym? Keep a mister in your bag! A few sprays will help replenish the moisture and rebalance the minerals you lost through sweating.
- For those quick makeup touch-ups. A foundation sponge soaked in thermal water soaks up less makeup, boosts the moisturizing effects of the foundation and makes application more fluid (excuse the pun). Mist can also be used as a setting spray: as it evaporates, the minerals that remain help hold your makeup in place.
- For its soothing effects. A few spritzes of thermal water can help soothe your skin after an allergic reaction, a sunburn or a particularly gruelling waxing session.
For more targeted use, fold a facial tissue in half, soak it in thermal water and apply it to the desired area. Leave it on to soak for at least 10 minutes, re-spritzing regularly.
Is all thermal water the same?
No! Because it comes from different sources, flowing through different soil, the quality and quantity of the minerals it contains varies, giving it specific properties that satisfy different needs.
- Avène water: low in minerals, gently relieves itching and heals lesions.
- Rich in silica, La Roche-Posay water covers the skin with a velvety, protective film. Its anti-oxidant action revitalizes cells and slows their aging.
- Uriage water is the most concentrated with 1g of minerals per litre. Because its mineral content is similar to that of your skin, it rebalances and re-moisturizes your skin easily.
- A true beauty potion, Vichy water tightens pores and strengthens the skin while soothing it completely. A quick and easy solution!
