Face mists are one of the most refreshing skincare products out there, but the right formula can offer far more benefits for your skin than merely freshening up stale makeup or quenching your skin’s thirst throughout the day—all without disturbing your skincare lineup underneath. Antioxidant sprays have some of the same advantages for your skin as your antioxidant-infused serums, moisturizers, and toners, from reducing texture, brightening a dull complexion, and protecting you against free radical damage caused by environmental aggressors and the sun. These hydrating face mists are basically like a tall glass of water and daily multivitamin for your skin—your face will thank you for the added nutrition.
Some of the most effective antioxidants include vitamin C, vitamin A (retinol), niacinamide, polyphenols, and flavonoids. These actives work to fight photoaging and correct existing anti-aging concerns by boosting collagen production, reducing inflammation, and promoting accelerated cell turnover, which helps the skin renew itself. While these sprays won’t replace essential skincare staples like your vitamin C serum and SPF, they will give your routine major extra credit. Plus, they’re super convenient to tote with you in your bag when you’re out and about or at the office.
