Anyone who is familiar with SkinCeuticals is already aware that the brand knows a thing or two about creating skin-care products that actually work. The brand’s arsenal of cleansers, serums, and creams are known for their effectiveness, which is why we’re always extra excited when we hear whispers of a new SkinCeuticals launch.
In fact, the brand released news recently that has us buzzing with excitement yet again. They’re launching another must-have product that’s sure to please its loyal clientele. Enter: Phyto Corrective Essence Mist.
If you suffer from sensitive, redness-prone skin, you’ll want to invest in this spray ASAP. With science on the forefront, this formula has Dr. Rachel Reyes-Bergano readier than ever to recommend it to her patients. Read on to find out exactly how this product works and if it’s an ideal pick for your skin concerns.
First, what does the product do?
Consider this product a 3-in-1: it hydrates, soothes, and visibly reduces redness all at the same time. In order to reap these benefits, the ingredients in this product focus on strengthening the skin barrier. “The external skin barrier is the outermost layer of the epidermis,” says Dr. Reyes-Bergano. “It helps our skin retain moisture and protects us from irritants in the environment such as chemicals or bacteria.”
So, without a strong skin barrier, our complexion experiences an increase in transepidermal water loss and irritation, creating a less-than-ideal complexion that’s ridden with redness, inflammation, and fine lines.
How does the SkinCeuticals Phyto Corrective Essence Mist work?
The magic behind this mist lies in its ingredients. Using the proprietary SkinCeuticals Phyto Botanical blend — which includes cucumber, thyme, olive leaf, and rosemary extracts — it effectively reduces visible redness and soothes irritated skin. “There are also humectants such as hyaluronic acid and glycerin to boost skin hydration on the spot,” adds Dr. Reyes-Bergano.
How should you use this product?
Product usage is simple: Apply Phyto Corrective Essence Mist immediately after your morning antioxidant serum, but before your usual moisturizer and SPF. “I also recommend keeping the mist in your cosmetic bag and spraying as needed throughout the day to keep skin looking hydrated and glowing,” adds Dr. Reyes-Bergano.
Dr. Reyes-Bergano also recommends using this product post-procedure to help minimize any irritation or sensitivity. “I use it with my patients following laser treatments and they notice an immediate visible difference in redness,” she says.
As a bonus, Dr. Reyes-Bergano claims this product — which is safe for all skin types — can prevent makeup from creasing in the middle of the day since it hydrates the skin with every spritz. “One of my patients referred to the mist as a “healthy setting spray,” which is the absolute truth,” she says.
The bottom line
Those with sensitive skin in need of some extra TLC, will want to give Phyto Corrective Essence Mist a try. With consistent use, it can help strengthen your external skin barrier, which is necessary for healthy-looking skin.
Plus, results are clinically proven, so you can rest assured your skin is actually benefiting from each spray. In a study conducted by the brand, users saw a 31% reduction in visible redness and an increase in hydration by 69% immediately after use. After eight hours, hydration was still up by an increase of 35%, making it perfect for those who experience chronic dry or dehydrated skin. With all these complexion-boosting benefits in mind, we consider this purchase a no-brainer.
