If your shot of espresso isn’t enough to keep you awake through the afternoon while you work from home, consider spritzing on a facial mist from time to time for an instant perk-me-up.
As facial mists are formulated with a cocktail of skin-loving ingredients, they can help to nourish, hydrate and soothe your complexion.
Now, some facial mists have earned a reputation for leaving your complexion dry once it evaporates.
