I already know what you’re thinking, “It’s water in a can… why would I buy water in a can?”. Trust me, I felt the same way as you. After doing some research and adding it to my skincare routine, I’m hooked. Not only does it have a million different uses, it also has so many benefits for your skin.
Let’s dive right into it, what is thermal water? It is rain water that is harvested from springs in France. The water takes years to get to the source where it is harvested. During this journey, it collects minerals and anti-oxidants from the earth that have incredible benefits for the skin.
Thermal water is amazing at soothing any kind of redness associated with inflammation. It can also soothe irritation and has the ability to balance the pH level on the skin (aka it can work as a toner). It can be used as a makeup setting spray, add hydration to the skin and cool the skin.
I love using thermal water through out the day. Working indoors, and over the winter, I found my skin could feel very dry throughout the day. A little spritz of thermal water helps my skin feel refreshed and reduce any feeling of dehydration. Also, during the summer it feels so refreshing on a hot day. In addition to use throughout the day, I also use it as part of my morning and nighttime skincare routine. I apply it after cleansing and before moisturizing. Applying moisturizer over top helps to lock the hydration, anti-oxidants and minerals into the skin.
