Meet the multi-tasking face sprays set to bump a step from your beauty routine
These next-gen face sprays do a lot more than just offer a hydration hit.
Like Beyoncé told us, we run the world. And with all that girlbossing to be done, modern women like us don’t have the time for a beautifying to-do list as long as season one of The Crown. Fortunately, your beauty cabinet is keeping up with your ever-increasing demands. Regular old facial mists have had a hyped-up makeover, with the latest crop of sprays doing it all and then some.
“When I had a baby, my skin changed and so did my time-management skills,” says Renee Moore, founder of Cinch – the brand that created a spray-on moisturiser that also leaves behind a glowy effect. “It offers as much hydration as many cream moisturisers, but feels light, and is designed to take the place of your anti-ageing serum, pore minimiser, illuminator and primer.” The space benefits of condensing five products into one aside, this clever formula is also a whiz at freshening up a tired face around about the time you’re looking for that afternoon coffee.
If you want your spray to do even heavier lifting, Synergie Skin’s new Enviroshield fends off damage caused by pollution and infra-red light (which can be just as harmful to the skin as UV rays). “More than half of the world’s population live in urban cities, so it’s essential that you’re protecting yourself from the negative impact of smog, hydrocarbon emissions, heavy metals and ageing free radicals,” says Terri Vinson, cosmetic chemist and the founder of Synergie Skin. The rosescented mist also adds a hit of hydration and dewiness to mineral powder makeup. Beauty bag, prepare to be downsized.
