4 face mists that are essential for spritzing in this humid heatwave

We have a love-hate relationship with the big heat of high summer. Certainly, sprawled on a beach or unwinding in a backyard around the pool, the humidity and beaming sun become far more enticing. But even then, we all have commitments that require a put-together appearance. To avoid a crimson complexion or melted makeup, be sure to stock up on these cool, and very cooling, face mists. Pro tip: store them in the fridge to feel even more calm and collected.

Hydrating Facial Mist by Weleda
Weleda’s Hydrating Facial Mist makes us misty-eyed with love for its key duo of hydrating, soothing ingredients: prickly pear extract and aloe vera. The prickly pear creates an intensively moisturising and protective layer on the skin, while the aloe vera is great for cooling and soothing — something that’s much-needed on the muggy morning commute. Plus, it smells herbaceously wholesome, as all Weleda’s products do.

The Mist by La Mer
Packed with a concentrated percentage of La Mer’s renowned miracle broth, with its luxurious inclusion of kelp, The Mist not only hydrates the face but also renews the complexion in a way that echoes the revitalising power of the brand’s coveted line of skincare. The epitome of effortless cool for your summer sangfroid.
