Graydon’s Face Food Mineral Mist is a unique facial toner that uses the power of minerals to reduce inflammation, stimulate collagen, and boost hydration –sounds good, right?
Just like a daily supplement, adding minerals to your routine can boost the overall health of your skin.
We often overlook the fact that we need to feed our skin nutrients just like we feed the rest of our body. You can’t expect to have healthy glowing skin if you’re feeding it ’empty calories’ like mineral oil and synthetic preservatives. You need to be feeding your skin ‘whole foods’ like pure plant oils, botanicals, and of course vitamins and minerals!
The concept of a ‘mineral toner’ was new to me. I have always promote floral hydrosols as toner for the skin, which help decrease inflammation, redness, and hydrate, but the Face Food has absolutely no floral ingredients. It’s an unscented ‘mega’ mineral-boosted water.
It only contains: purified water, zinc, copper, magnesium, and silver. Crazy, right?
- Zinc helps heal and repair skin. It’s especially great for treating inflammatory conditions like acne and eczema.
- Copper helps promote the production of collagen and elastin, which gives skin its strength and ‘youthfulness’.
- Magnesium helps to combat skin allergies and irritations.
- Silver is naturally anti-microbial, can fight infections and is great for preventing breakouts.
My clients LOVE when I use the Face Food in my facial treatments, especially when I do a little finger tapping ‘dance’ to help it absorb into the skin.
Applying Face Food
DO mist your face immediately after cleansing. It’s a great boost for the skin, calms redness or irritation, and is a perfect prep to help skin absorb active serums and moisturizers. Just be sure to apply your serum or moisturizer while your skin is still damp. You can also spray the Face Food on throughout the day to feel refreshed. Be sure to ‘tap’ the mist into your skin (kind of like playing a piano!) so that it fully absorbs.
DON’T let the Face Food dry on your skin without adding a moisturizing product afterward. When water evaporates on the skin it can draw moisture with it, leaving your skin feeling even drier than before. This also holds true when cleansing the face, especially if using tap water that is chlorinated and exceptionally drying.
I love the entire line of Graydon products and actually use them in all of my holistic facial treatments!
