How To Keep Your Complexion Cool In The Heatwave

Face mists can seem quite pointless, that is until you find yourself sitting in the 25-degree heat and then reenter your office feeling flustered and a bit sweaty, desperately in need of cooling down.

Even when it’s not hot, face mists have the added benefit of waking up tired skin and refreshing a dull complexion, many of them are enriched with antioxidants that can also help prevent signs of ageing and keep your skin hydrated.

When you’re sat all day inside a stuffy office they are amazing as a lunchtime pick me up and don’t underestimate how handy they are on holiday and at festivals.

If you don’t already have one now’s the time to invest in one of these skin soothers, keep it on your desk and they’ll keep you cool and refreshed after your run in with the sun, because, lets face it who isn’t spending their lunch break sunbathing!?
