You can look at face mists as highly evolved forms of those spray bottles we used to squirt ourselves with as kids. Sure, they may not be entirely essential to your skin's well-being (although I think they are), but they're a really, really nice addition to your beauty routine.
If you love the scent of roses, you'll love this DIY rosewater mist. Rosewater has tons of beneficial properties for skin, from hydration to calming inflammation post workout, to radiance-boosting and glow-giving sheen. Best of all, the simple mix of rosewater, rose oil, and witch hazel makes this facial mist smell delicately sweet. Use it to freshen up throughout the day, after you've broken a sweat, popped a pimple, had a way-too-hot shower, or even for a quick calming vibe during a date!
