Feel like your face is always dirty? Suffering from a hot or dry climate? These organic face sprays can help!

It’s the season to embrace the magic of mists! I absolutely adore facial sprays – they’re the perfect antidote for sweltering summers, and are especially welcome when they’re infused with botanical concoctions that are specially designed to promote healthy glowing skin.
Although they may not be a high priority on your beauty shopping list, I can definitely state as a beauty expert and makeup artist that facial mists are a multi-functional beauty must-have – they can be used to hydrate the skin, soothe irritations, impart a youthful glow, and even set your makeup to perfection.
And on the hottest, most humid days, give yourself a treat by storing your spray in the fridge and spritzing liberally for an extra burst of cool. To use, hold the product away from the face, close your eyes, and spray the facial mist starting from the forehead to the neckline.
Whether you love the scent of coconut or roses, need something with astringent qualities or anti-ageing, there’ll be something for you from our list of natural and organic face sprays. They’re also all vegan friendly, and are perfect for boosting your skin’s beauty routine right now.
