There are lots of reasons that one may lose moisture throughout the day: you can't control the heat at work (like Team Heyday), you sit next to a door that opens and closes all day, you walk outside a few times. If you have a good moisturizer, your skin has sucked all of its nutrients into its pores by the middle of the day. This is why our Skin Therapist, Jenna swears by a midday hydrating mist. Here are some of our favorites.
If you're looking for a little post-sun relief then aloe vera is your MVP, which is why we love After Sun Mist Soothing Aloe Mist from Herbivore. With a mix of aloe water and lavender, this product is here to soothe and calm your skin. And it only has six all-natural ingredients, so we know exactly what is here to save the day. Pack this one up with some SPF, aloe vera gel (for if you get a real sunburn) and head to the beach!
Peptides isn't just an adorable word, it is also a great anti-aging fighter. As we age, the collagen – the protein which decides on the thickness of our skin – breaks down. As this happens, our skin creates amino acids called peptides. Think of it as a messenger service for your skin. "We've lost collagen. Make more, please!" But it won't make enough. This is where topical peptides come in. When you use something with peptides in it, it tricks your skin into thinking that your collagen is in danger and asks it to make more. Luckily for you, the Hydra-Mist feat. Desert Lime & Amino-Peptide from Grown Alchemist has amino-peptides and desert lime to help give your skin a mid-day wake up! Spray away.
The smell alone is reason enough to spray your face all over with this baby. Both antiseptic because of its lavender flower water and oil and calming due to the honey, this all-natural mist can be used as a post-cleanser toner or as a makeup setting spray. So hydrate away, anytime a day.
This great mist is fueled by larch extract to promote cell turn over and rose geranium, which gives you a little spritz of anti-inflammatory hydration to hold onto throughout the day. Like its lavender and honey friend, it can be used as a toner or as a setting spray.
New Yorkers have a serious Vitamin D problem. We don't get enough of it, plain and simple. Luckily there are lots of ways to get those vitamins. This mist is one of them! Part lightweight moisturizer, part toner, this small bottle packs a punch. So use it post-workout, after a cleanser, or just anytime you wish you could feel the sun on your skin.
