7 reasons to add a face mist to your daily routine

From toning to tanning, these skincare sprays will enhance your complexion, says Katie Wright.



When temperatures soar and you can’t escape to the seaside or for a dip in the pool, a quick spritz of facial mist is a handy hack to help you cool down – especially if you keep it in the fridge.


Not only are these blasts of refreshment a delight on sticky days, a beautifying spray can work wonders for your complexion when used in the morning or evening.



Plus, with lots of under-£10 buys they’re an affordable way to up the ante on your summer skincare.


Here are seven skin-boosting reasons to add a face mist to your daily routine…


1. Toning



Neutrogena Clear & Soothe Toning Mist, £5.99, Boots


Ideal for oily or combination skin types, a toning mist nourishes the skin without clogging pores. Apply after cleansing and follow with an oil-free moisturiser for a perfectly primed matte base.


2. Sun protection



Bondi Sands SPF 50+ Fragrance Free Sunscreen Face Mist, £8.99


If you find sunblock too heavy or greasy, swap your usual lotion for a light-as-air mist that can be applied on top of make-up. These high-factor sunscreen sprays are also great for topping up throughout the day.


3. Hydrating



Pip & Pod Blueberry Tonic Face Mist, £9, Holland and Barrett


Every beauty buff knows that hyaluronic acid is a must for helping your skin to retain moisture. In a mist formula, you get those all-important acid molecules plus a big hit of hydration.


4. Brightening



Natura Siberica Anti-OX Wild Blueberry Moisturising Face Mist Toner, £8.49


If a bright, healthy complexion is what you’re after, a mist packed with antioxidants should be top of your shopping list. Vitamin C in particular is renowned for its glow-giving power, with experts recommending you use it in the morning to prevent oxidation during the day.

5. Make-up setting




Givenchy Prisme Libre Prep & Set Glow Mist SPF45, £36, Escentual


More than just a foundation fixer, the next generation of setting sprays can actually be used under make-up as a primer, plus they offer an extra-dewy finish and some even provide SPF protection too.



Pur Lit Mist Illuminating Setting Spray, £19


6. Soothing



Sun Bum Cool Down Hydrating After Sun Spray Aloe Vera and Cocoa Butter, £12.79, Boots


Give parched summer skin some TLC and tan-prolonging hydration with a soothing aftersun spray. Look for moisturising ingredients like aloe vera, coconut oil or sunflower seed oil.


7. Tanning



Bare by Vogue Face Tanning Mist, £16


Perfect for topping up your tan post-holiday (because your face tends to fade faster than your body), a self-tanning spray adds a burst of moisture and a healthy glow that develops in a few hours.
