There's nothing quite like the feeling of the ocean's mist hitting your face as you lounge on the beach — or is there? Though they may not come complete with a seaside view, facial mists do a remarkable job of refreshing both our visages and our attitudes whenever we're in need of a little pick-me-up. (In fact, the R29 beauty team has a communal mist on rotation at all times — you'd be surprised at all that can be accomplished after a department-wide spritz or two.)
But, besides being super-refreshing in the sticky summer heat, mists are also a genius way to keep your skin hydrated all day long — yes, even over your makeup. Spritz a lightweight lotion on top of your made-up face and it will add much-needed moisture without making your mascara melt off your eyes. Pure magic.
