10 Natural Mist Sprays For A Fresh-Looking Skin All Day Long 

By: Tejaswini Parker

Summer is a lovely season. You can wear all the clothes you can't wear during other times of the year, and you can go out more often. But no one can run away from the ugly tan and sunburn that our summer escapades leave us with. A soothing and refreshing spray would be ideal during such a hot climate.

When you buy a spray bottle, buy an opaque one. If you can't find one, you can simply stick a dark-coloured paper around it or paint it in some dull dark colour. It keeps the light from entering, thereby retaining all its active ingredients. Most of the active ingredients are light-sensitive and are substances that actually make the difference.

Always keep in mind, that a facial mist spray should not only refresh your skin but also hydrate it. It should have a protective ingredient, which protects your skin from being in direct contact with the sun rays. Use the spray thrice a day i.e., once in the morning, afternoon and evening.

Here are 10 DIY natural mist sprays for a fresh-looking skin all day long.
