How to fake your face awake

Face mists are one of the unsung heroes of the skincare world but ask any model, A-lister or make-up artist and they’ll reel it off as one of their must-have beauty products.

The quickest way to inject some moisture back into your skin without having to take your make-up off and start all over again, keep one on your desk or in your handbag for whenever your skin needs a quick pick-me-up


For dry, tired skin: Institut Esthederm Eau Cellulaire Cellular Water Spray £16

This spray contains the patented cellular water that mimics the water found naturally in healthy skin. By providing a better environment for your cells, their activity is boosted, like an energy shot. This results in tired looking complexions looking more awake, it perks up any dry patches and brings back the glow that sitting slogging away at a desk all day can take away.


For long-lasting makeup: L’Oreal Paris Infallible Fixing Mist £7.99

If you’ve previously shied away from makeup setting sprays for fear of them ruining your perfectly precise flicks, this one has better game. A cult product in America, it needs a serious shake-up to avoid any white marks, but once we’d managed the knack it kept our make-up in place all day, despite a rain-soaked lunch run.


For sensitive complexions: Sönd Hydrating Face Spray £38

Every Sönd product is made with the natural mineral, Silica, an anti-inflammatory ingredient that calms and soothes sensitive skin and boosts collagen production. Applied in the morning after cleansing, it preps skin to better absorb your serum, oil or moisturiser or spray it throughout the day for an extra hydration hit.
