It’s officially summer. When the rain eases up and the clouds part, sometimes the heat can be a little too much to take, especially when you don’t have a nice frozen drink to cool you down. When you need to cool down in a hurry, try a face mist. They are so much more than just water in a fancy package. Face mists are specifically formulated to moisturise, soothe and anti-age. They will even set your makeup.
