When the weather is exceptionally hot, we don’t always want to wear our perfume as the scent is too heavy during summer. Perfume body mist spray gives us the perfect opportunity to wear our favourite fragrance whist still leaving the skin feeling fresh with a gorgeous scent.
FM World offers a range of fragrances and cosmetic products that include body mists. Using a body mist, particularly in the hot weather, can have several benefits and add a touch of scent as we embrace the hot days.
The benefits of using a perfume body mist spray
Body mists are typically water-based and contain a lower concentration of fragrance oils compared to perfumes or colognes. This makes them lighter and more refreshing and an excellent choice for hot weather.
A quick spritz of body mist can instantly cool you down and leave you feeling refreshed and energised.
Many body mists contain moisturising ingredients such as glycerin or aloe vera. We already know how soothing aloe vera products are so these can help keep your skin hydrated in hot and dry weather.
It’s important to prevent it from becoming overly dry or irritated. Our skin is exposed to the sun more than we realise so we need to keep it hydrated in the same way as we do our bodies when we drink water.
FM World body mists come in four different female scents, so you can choose one that suits your preferences and our scents are inspired by familiar designer perfumes.
■ FM 18 Coco Mademoiselle – Chanel
■ FM 20 Flower Bomb-Victor & Rolf
■ FM372 Aventus For Her- Creed
■ FM 489 Alien – Thierry Mugler
The fragrance provides a pleasant and lasting scent throughout the day, keeping you smelling fresh even in the heat. The mist is very cool too as it settles on the skin. I recently had a colleague comment on my scent and it had been applied several hours prior.
Women are creatures of habit and many of us will carry our favourite scent in a handbag. Body mists come in small, convenient travel-friendly bottles, making them easy to carry in your bag or take away on holiday. This also gives you the option to reapply throughout the day if needed, to stay feeling fresh and clean.
Some body mists are alcohol-free, which can be gentler on the skin and less likely to cause irritation, especially in hot weather when your skin may already be more sensitive due to the sun’s exposure.
With FM World’s body mists, they can be used in conjunction with our other fragrance products like perfumes or lotions from the same line to create a layered scent effect, which can be appealing and long-lasting.
Using body mist in hot weather
Apply the body mist to your pulse points, such as your wrists, neck, and behind your ears, just as you would your perfume. These areas emit heat and can help the fragrance dissipate and last longer.
It’s important to still remember that less is more, even with a body mist. They are lighter than perfumes but it is still very easy to over apply and end up with too much spray on the kin. More can always be added so start off with a light spritz.
Be mindful in the heat as some fragrances can react with sunlight and heat, leading to changes in scent or skin irritation. Try to avoid spraying body mist directly onto sun-exposed areas such as the arms.
In hot weather, you may need to reapply a body mist more frequently to maintain its refreshing effect and fragrance.
FM World body mists offer a great addition to your summer skincare and fragrance routine, providing a quick and easy way to stay cool, hydrated, and pleasantly scented in hot weather.
Using an FM World body mist can be incorporated into your daily routine.
Choose from four of the fragrance mists that you like the most and one that fits in with your occasion and preference.
Skin preparation is key and it is best to use a body mist on freshly showered or bathed skin. Your skin needs to be clean and dry. If you have sensitive skin, you can also apply a moisturizer before using the mist to help lock in the scent.
Give the body mist bottle a gentle shake before using it. This helps mix the fragrance and any moisturizing or hydrating ingredients that may have settled at the bottom.
Hold the body mist bottle about 6-8 inches (15-20 cm) away from your body. Aim the nozzle at the area you want to apply the mist to. Common areas include your wrists, neck, chest, and behind your ears.
Start with a light spritz or two, as body mists are typically more delicate than perfumes or colognes. You can always add more if you’d like a stronger scent, but it’s better to start conservatively to avoid over application.
After applying the body mist, resist the urge to rub it into your skin. The same rule applies whether it’s your favourite perfume or a body mist. Let it air dry naturally and avoid rubbing as this can disrupt the fragrance molecules and affect the longevity of the scent.
Throughout the day, especially in hot weather or if you want to refresh the scent, you can reapply the body mist as desired. It’s convenient to carry the small bottle with you for touch-ups.
If you’re using other fragrance products like perfumes, lotions, or shower gels from the same FM World line, consider layering them to enhance the longevity and depth of the scent.
Remember that the longevity of a body mist may not be as long as a perfume or eau de toilette, so reapplication may be necessary to maintain the fragrance throughout the day.
Additionally, how you store your body mist can also affect its quality; it’s best to store it in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and heat.
Using FM World body mist can be a delightful addition to your daily routine, providing a burst of fragrance and freshness to enhance your overall scent profile.
