My skincare routine only changes slightly in the summer months—my heavy winter moisturizer gets swapped out for something lighter and I break out my bottles of face mist, one of my favorite skincare multi-taskers. Face mists are amazing because:
- You can use them as a toner. And somehow a toner you can spray is a lot more fun than the kind that comes in a regular bottle.
- They’re the perfect way to cool off when it’s hot out and your face feels gross. Keep them in the fridge for even more cooling power.
- Some face mists also work as setting sprays. And you know we all need a good setting spray when it’s eleventy-billion degrees out.
If you’re ready to add a few face mists to your arsenal, I’ve rounded up some of my favorites below.
