7 face mists that can cool you down on a hot day
FYI, we highly recommend popping them in the fridge

You sure can't beat a generous spritz of face mist over your skin after basking in the sun on a hot day. One of Australia’s leading facialists, Jocelyn Petroni, agrees with us 100 per cent: "A refreshing, cooling, hydrating facial mist is the perfect summer’s day beauty trick," she says. "Not only does it hydrate the skin and add that dewy glow, it also feels amazing and cooling on the skin after a day in the sun." Amen to that.
To cool yourself down even more effectively, try storing your mist in the fridge for a serious pick-me-up. "Putting your facial mist in the fridge can also reduce puffiness and calm inflammation in the skin when applied because of the cooling factor. I recommend keeping [one] in the fridge this summer for the perfect after-sun application and [to calm] sensitive skin."
What's also really attractive about adding a face mist to your skin care routine is the fact that it's so easy to use – you can mist it all over your skin straight after using your cleanser; it can be used in lieu of a toner; and some even work a treat for reviving makeup.
So, if you're keen to feel fresh instead of sweaty this summer, here are the face-freshening mists we suggest stocking up on...

Babor Glowing Summer Face Spray
Besides being really refreshing on skin, this summery moisture spray is also a gradual tanner that's enriched with DHA to gently dial up your glow levels over a few days. Basically, you'll get closer to your 'glossy and golden' goal with every spritz.

Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Ultra Fine Mist
This is definitely the yummiest face mist we've come across, hands down. It doesn't just deliver in the look and smell departments, though; with watermelon, hyaluronic acid and hibiscus AHAs in the blend, it works to both slough away dead skin and keep all the fresh stuff hydrated and bright.
Ella Baché Daily Hydration Mist
Got oily or congested skin? This skin mist is enriched with hyaluronic acid and witch hazel to keep moisture levels up and skin (including any dreaded sunburn) soothed while also aiding with the whole 'enlarged pores' issue.
Neutrogena® Hydro Boost® Hydrating Facial Gel Mist
We've never met a Hydro Boost offering we didn't love, and this moisturising mist is certainly no exception. Centred around its hero ingredient hyaluronic acid, it's a gel mist formula that hits skin with a very hearty (and yet light-as-air) hydration hit.
Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist
Searching for something that sends your skin straight to dewy town? Enter this luxuriously lightweight spray, which is loaded with hyaluronic acid as well as a blend of algae and botanical oils to leave your face feeling energised and looking luminous.
