Picture this: you’re glistening with a soft sheen under the heat of the sun, you reach into your bag to find a refreshment, and upon unveiling a bottle of face mist, you spritz a delicate spray of the cooling hydrator all over your parched (but sun-kissed) complexion.
Bit sexy, right? Well, guess what? This skin care-themed soft-porn could be your life this summer.
All you have to do is invest in a hydrating face mist.
Here are eight of our favourites to get you prepared for the next heat wave.
Ella Baché New Daily Hydration Mist
What looks more youthful than a glowing and fresh complexion? Nothing as far as we’re concerned. This fine facial mist is a one-step hack to revitalisation for a variety of skin types thanks to the combination of antibacterial and hydrating ingredients such as witch hazel, hyaluronic acid and marine botanical extracts that improve barrier function.

SkinCeuticals Phyto Corrective Essence Mist
Hydrating and correcting, we love this mist for sensitive skin that has a tendency to throw red when it’s in trouble. The strengthening formula can be used in your daily routine or as needed to help reinforce the natural skin barrier, soothe skin and reduce redness.

Ultraceuticals Ultra Hydrating Skin Mist
CAUDALIE Grape Water
We know, we know, whilst it is disappointing that this grape water is not actually a wine one can consume through topical application methods, this antioxidant-rich, 100 per cent organic grape water is an undeniably reliable skin hydrator. Soothing, refreshing and moisturising skin – we suggest keeping this one in the handbag for top-ups throughout the day.

Avene Eau Thermale Spring Water
Eau Thermale Avène Thermal Spring Water is a tried and trusted hydrating face mist if you ask us. If you haven’t had the luxury of dousing your skin in a swathe of this pick’s fine mist then you have not yet lived. The thermal spring water in question is sourced from Avene (a French commune and the brand’s namesake as you might have guessed already) and it works to soothe and soften skin, and counter any irritation one may be experiencing.
