Chances are you haven’t been told a face mist is an essential to your everyday skincare routine. It’s always been one of those helpful add-ons—something refreshing to keep in your handbag when your skin feels like it’s lacking hydration. Think of it like a water bottle for your face. But face mists have gotten something of a makeover in the past year, moving into skincare staple status. From formulas that address acne to anti-aging, here are a few to know about right now.
First Aid Beauty Hello FAB Vital Greens Face Mist
A superfood salad is great and all, but a superfood face mist? We do accept, indeed! This aloe-infused bottle is made with a blend of kale, spinach, cucumber, and spirulina to treat your face to antioxidant protection that will also work to shield environmental aggressors, a potential cause of premature aging.
