DIY hydrating facial mists for your skin this winter


Face mists or facial sprays are having their moment in the sun, alright. Hollywood loves it. Cindy Crawford is reported to milk with water for a hydrating facial spray, Kim Kardashian has an SPF-infused one and Kylie Jenner is said to use a spritz to make her make-up look better. Back home, the stars love it, too – Amy Jackson is a fan of the facial mist and Ananya Panday has a bottle of fresh rose water that she sprays on her face to stay fresh. With the season set to leave the skin drier, perhaps you might want to make one, too?
