It's hot out there and, if you're anywhere east of Arizona, chances are it's humid as well. There's nothing like a mist of water to cool you off. Remember those spray cans with the fans built in? You would add water, turn on the fan, and it was like your own, mini outdoor mist machine? Well, it did the trick, albeit not very chic.
These days, we have a variety of sprays to choose from all by top skincare brands. While they're the perfect refresher to a hot summer day, some also work double duty as a toner to nourish the skin, adding moisture, vitamins and antioxidants while removing dirt and sweaty grime. Now, you tell me, could your water mister do all this? I think not!
Here are 5 of my favorite sprays for summer:
1 - Epicuren Protein Mist - A vitamin mist that works to rehydrate all skin types. Meant for use after cleansing, but the bottle is small and so convenient for on-the-go and the sweet scent is so refreshing, I like to spritz throughout the day. Bring on the vitamins! $24.00
2 - Organic Pharmacy Rose Facial Spritz Toner - Cover your face with one of my favorite scents - rose - which also helps to calm red, irritated and sensitive skin. Refreshes as it hydrates, ideal for dry and sensitive skin types. You can use as a toner or multiple times a day for a quick pick-me-up. 21.50 POUNDS
3 - Tata Harper Hydrating Floral Essence - Great for all skin types, this mist hydrates while improving the appearance of pore size and oil control. It's light, fresh and refreshing with a wonderful breezy scent. Again, can be used as a toner but is a lovely daily spritzer to freshen up on-the-go. $65.00
4 - AMOREPACIFIC Moisture Bound Skin Energy Hydration Delivery System - Free of sulfates, synthetic dyes and petro-chemicals, this lightweight, oil-free botanical mist made from bamboo sap and red ginseng is the ultimate refresher. Suitable for all skin types, anytime, anywhere. Freshen up in style! $35.00
5 - *DRUGSTORE FIND* Heritage Jasmine Water Spray - These aromatherapy waters come in a medley of scents (I'm loving Jasmine for summer) and are the perfect mist to refresh face and body all day long. Pure essential oils offer the natural scent that is literally water mixed with a dose of exotic flavor. And you can't beat the price: $5.81
TIP - To use any of the above sprays as facial toners, simply mist onto cotton ball and swipe onto face until clean. It's as easy as that!
