We saw recently that some people were praising the use of Hairsprays as a makeup finishing spray and we couldn’t help but cringe!
Hair sprays can be used as a hack for a variety of things but as a setting spray is a no-no!
Whether you’re spraying it ahead of your face and “walking through it” or accidentally spritzing it onto your face when you spray your hair, this beauty hack is quite detrimental to your skin.
Hairsprays have a lot of different chemicals and toxins that are not safe to use on skin. These chemicals can cause rashes, irritation or clogged pores.
Plus, hairspray contains alcohol and lacquers that will dry out your skin, causing it to become dehydrated and look much older and we both know you don’t want that to happen.
Real makeup setting sprays have one of the main ingredients as water, so while it does use a mixture of silicones and polymers to set your makeup, it’s less drying and more gentle on the skin than hairspray.
You can also use setting powders if you don’t want to use the sprays but please, DO NOT resort to using hairspray on your face!
