A Fine Mist

by Rona Berg

Refreshing spritzes and mists to keep skin feeling hydrated and refreshed

I keep a small bottle of mist (or spritz) on my desk at all times. It is not only refreshing, but it’s also really good for the skin. Some mists feature sea minerals, rose water, essential oils, antioxidants, aromatherapy benefits. The ones that win a spot next to my computer (and in my heart!) are usually those I’ve chosen because I like the smell—or lack of it.

Even though there are tangible benefits to spritzing (especially on a hot, humid day) in this case, my priority is sensory. An additional, tangible benefit: It’s great to carry a spritz on a plane. If the size is not TSA-compliant, you can purchase (or recycle) a smaller spray bottle and fill it. Before I leave for the airport, I always grab and go.

Spritzes can be sprayed directly onto the face or misted onto a cotton pad and applied to the face, like a toner. They dry quickly and leave skin feeling—and smelling!—fresh, soft and clean.
