Cindy Crawford

Summer's coming and while everyone is thinking about getting their tan on, we're here thinking about how we can keep our skin hydrated this season so we don't look like shoe leather by the time we're forty! Whether you're looking to calm irritated skin, brighten a dull, dry complexion, or just simply boost your mood, a few spritzes may just be what the doctor ordered. Don't you want to just feel like oh my god, my face is, like, SO dewy today? Well, using a facial mist will definitely contribute to that. They're the type of product that you'd never know you needed but once you try it, can't live without. Side note: legend has it that Cleopatra (the original beauty icon) bathed in milk for radiant skin. And supermodel Cindy Crawford (pictured above) is rumored to follow the same beauty routine, spraying her face with a milk and mineral water mix daily. Sounds like something worth looking into. We've rounded up some of the best tips on how to use a face mist and why you need one. 

  • Face mist refreshes your skin. This goes without saying. Spritzing your face feels cooling, refreshing and just amazing on a hot day.

The end result will be a plumper, dewier looking skin.
