Wake up your skin with a quick spritz of moisture and hydration. By SAMANTHA FRANCIS.

Along with wet wipes, hand sanitiser, and water bottle, the facial mist is fast becoming a workout essential that’s perfect for stashing in your gym bag. Suitable for most skin types, facial mists are liquids meant to be misted directedly on the skin via a spray bottle or atomiser.

They’re typically rich with hydrating and soothing ingredients, while some also offer oil-absorbing properties. Use them to freshen up your skin in between gym sets or as a fuss-free alternative to a multi-step skincare routine, especially if you’re rushing back to work after an exercise class.

Here are some of our top picks.
