Facial mists have a rep of being called an unnecessary beauty purchase, but I’m a firm believer that they're a key step in any skincare routine.

Not only do facial mists help combat dryness, redness, acne and even an oily T-zone, in current pandemic times, a quick spritz can even help prevent the dreaded maskne from appearing.

A versatile addition to any beauty routine, they’re often formulated to boost hydration, leave skin feeling refreshed, and can even double as makeup setting spray. Use them to prep skin as the very first step in your routine, as the final step, and throughout the day as needed.
