On a hot and humid day, a spritz of facial spray can completely turn your mood around. In colder climes, it also provides a quick dose of moisture. Many facial sprays come with skin-loving ingredients like aloe vera or rose water, and come in travel sizes so you can give yourself a quick refresher wherever you go.

The cult-favorite Thayers Rosewater and Witchhazel toner also comes in a convenient, face-mist form. This witch hazel extract comes with 195 percent more tannins than other mists, which makes it a natural astringent that tightens pores, controls oil production, and soothes inflammation. It is alcohol-free (so less drying) and boasts rosewater and aloe vera to rehydrate skin. It's a great way to prep your skin for absorbing skincare serums, too.
