The Six Best Face Mists for Every Skin Type

Hydrating sprays, facial toners, face mists—whatever you call them, do-it-all facial sprays are essential in your routine. But, these formulas are not just one size fits all, and they can be tailored to any skin type to fit your specific needs. Here are some of our favorites for every concern, from acne-prone to sensitive (and there’s a new launch you need on your radar, too!).

 

IF YOU HAVE SENSITIVE SKIN, TRY:

SkinCeutcials Phyto Corrective Essence Mist

The newest addition to SkinCeuticals’ soothing Phyto line is the Corrective Essence Mist—it launched 8/23—is sprayed like a mist, but it acts like a serum on the skin, combatting signs of irritation. Featuring a 6.2% blend of humectants like hyaluronic acid and glycerin and a 5.75% blend of phyto-active ingredients like olive leaf and rosemary extracts, signs of sensitivity like redness, rough skin texture and blotchiness stand no chance against this multitasking barrier-booster.

 

IF YOU HAVE DULL SKIN, TRY:

Chantecaille Orange Flower Water

Give skin the mid-day pick-me-up we all need with this orange-infused mist. With steam-distilled florals, which keeps the concentration of the product at a higher level, you’ll notice an instantly revitalized appearance, with a side of added nourishment, whether you’re at your desk or heading to bed.

 

IF YOU HAVE AGING SKIN, TRY:

DHC Super Collagen Mist

Whether you drink it or apply it to the skin, collagen has the ability to keep skin looking youthful and healthy, but remembering to implement the supplement into your day-to-day routine can be tricky. This on-the-go essential changes that notion. Chock-full of collagen-derived peptides and moisture-retaining trehalose, this take-with-you-anywhere bottle offers a spritz of skin support at any moment in your day.

 

IF YOU HAVE ACNE-PRONE SKIN, TRY:

La Roche-Posay Serozinc 

If you’re prone to acne and oil buildup, spritz this zinc sulfate-infused mattifying spray over your skin before you head out, or periodically throughout the day. We like to leave this by our desks while we’re in the office to keep our makeup on, and control oils to avoid pesky breakouts.

 

IF YOU HAVE DRY SKIN, TRY:

Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Mist

Originally created for Queen Elizabeth of Hungary in the 14th century, this hydrating mist has become an editor favorite and skin care staple for giving your skin the royal treatment. Blended with orange blossom, rose and sage water to tone along with apple pectin and Hungarian thermal water to restore hydration, this refreshing spray engulfs the skin and keeps the glow locked and loaded for smooth, supple skin.

 

IF YOU HAVE DAMAGED SKIN, TRY:

PCA Skin Daily Defense Mist

Guard your skin from environmental aggressors like blue light and airborne pollutants and offer a burst of hydration with this shielding spray. It even sits seamlessly on top of makeup to create a shield that locks your look in and keeps particles out.
