Facial mists, are one of those mystifying (no pun intended) beauty products. They leave us wondering if they really work … and what is their actual purpose? Facial mists are actually great for soothing skin on a warm day, or for re-hydrating your face after you step into the airport after a long flight. They can help in the fight against acne; keep skin moisturized in dry conditions, which is also an anti-aging approach. Facial mists keep you calm, cool and looking your best no matter what the situation. A small spritz can really perk up your day. Keep one handy in your gym bag, desk or purse for a quick pick me up whenever the mood strikes you.
