Spray lotions and mists that make your skin feel like heaven

For hot and sticky summer days, a hydrating body or facial mist can feel so good. These summery-scented picks will leave your skin moisturized and refreshed.

Spray lotions and mists that make your skin feel like heaven

Of course, body and face mists do more than just cool off your skin and smell good! "Body mists provide a thin layer of hydration to the skin without overburdening the skin to create a greasy feel," explains dermatologist Dr. Julia Tzu, the Director and Founder of Wall Street Dermatology. She says to be on the lookout for these key ingredients when choosing a mist: antioxidants (which have anti-aging benefits), hyaluronic acid (which helps keep your skin moisturized) and pure and simple water. Other ingredients like aloe vera, jojoba oil and rose water provide additional skin-loving benefits.

Mists are easier to apply over larger surface areas than traditional moisturizers, Dr. Tzu points out — that's what makes them so great for your beach bag. Just one note: Make sure that you spray in a well ventilated area, Dr. Tzu recommends, and if the product contains sunscreen, avoid spraying it on your face and inhaling the mist.
