Nothing feels as good as a cool spritz on a hot steamy day, but today’s mists do so much more than refresh…though that’s my favorite thing about them! They’ll boost your glow, hydrate your complexion, set your makeup, deliver sun protection, calm sensitive skin–basically cure whatever ails you. Toss one in your bag to instantly revive, whenever the mood strikes:
Caudalie Eau de Beaute Beauty Elixer ($49) is my personal desert island beauty must-have. You can expect it to tone, tighten, lessen fine lines and wrinkles and increase your skin’s micro-circulation so it glows like it did in your younger years. Spritz on freshly cleansed skin before applying moisturizer, use it post-makeup application for staying power or mist on any time of day for an energizing pick-me-up. It feels so incredibly refreshing that you’ll find yourself indulging multiple times a day. And while you do, breathe deeply to enjoy the aromatherapeutic benefits of Orange Blossom, Rose, Mint and Rosemary.
Avene Thermal Spring Water ($18) is what you want when your skin can use a little extra love–it calms your complexion thanks to silica and trace elements that soothe, soften and hydrate irritated, sensitive, reactive, allergic, hyper-sensitive and even post-procedure skin.
L’Occitane Peony Perfecting Mist ($24) smells light, fresh and wonderful! It also boosts radiance and hydration up to 8 hours, immediately diminishes the look of pores and will refine your complexion.
Bioelements Power Peptide ($41) is power-packed with skin-smoothing, anti-aging, line diminishing peptides, amino acids to boost luminosity and brighten skin and soothing extracts. Use morning and night to renew, moisturize and nourish.
Josie Maran Nirvana Hydrating Treatment Mist ($38) helps you get the most out of your skincare products. To use this organic mist, spritz your complexion immediately after cleansing to help your skin better absorb the products to follow. The key ingredients in this mist and their benefits? Argan oil extract nourishes, coconut water provides essential hydration and electrolytes, protein-rich minerals give you extra antioxidant protection, konjac root spheres plump and smooth skin, and a multi-fruit complex of sugar cane, lemon, and orange extract exfoliate, support natural collagen production, and boost skin elasticity while cucumber and geranium essences perfectly prep your skin for moisturizer.
Dr. Jart+ Pore Medic Pore Minish Mist ($30), idolized by those with normal to oily complexions, is an innovative toner and powder skin mist, containing active ingredients that control excess oil to help keep skin free from breakouts, visually tighten pores, firm skin, calm inflammation and protect you from oxidative damage. Shake well before misting this mineral water-based, talc-free, oil-controlling mattifier on your t-zone.
Supergoop! Defense Refresh Setting Mist SPF50 ($28) makes it easy to shield against sun damage, plus it keeps shiny skin at bay, soothes redness and inflammation and is expert at keeping makeup from shifting. Spearmint, Peppermint and Rosemary also provide an uplifting sensory experience you’re sure to love. Tip: When in direct sunlight, reapply it every two hours to ensure optimal protection from the sun’s damaging rays.
