Over the past few years, facial mists haven’t been considered skincare must-haves. Sure, they feel great and can help in providing lightweight hydration, but for the most part they are an unnecessary luxury.
Now, however, misting is taking on a whole new meaning. Instead of focusing on refreshing hydration, modern formulas are out to kill bacteria and blitz spots – with the aim of defeating corona-mask-induced breakouts.
WHAT’S TO COME?
Keep an eye out for spritzes that contain hypochlorous acid, such as Clinisoothe+ Skin Purifier, £14.95, and The Light Salon Boost Cleanse & Recovery Spray, £18.
This ingredient targets spot-causing bacteria while keeping the skin’s natural balance in check. Simply pop in your handbag and mist over your face before and after you put a face covering on to prevent maskne.
