Facial mists have been the unsung heroes of skincare. While they’ve been silently rescuing tired, lacklustre skin for decades, there’s still many people who believe them to be nothing but overpriced bottles of water. And then there are those, like me, who swear by their healing, skin-loving properties. With the right formula, mists can help treat and/or correct aging, acne, dryness, excess oil, irritation and allergies, making them a skincare must-have. On top of that, with temperatures rapidly rising, there’s really no better — or refreshing — way to treat your skin than with a cooling spritz of a hydrating facial mist. To help you prevent makeup meltdowns and more this summer, here, we’ve gathered a list of our favourite spritzes.
This facial mist is designed to keep skin looking younger. Infused with trace minerals, hyaluronic acid and protective antioxidants, this spray creates an invisible shield on the skin to protect it against the elements.
