Fall is widely considered the best season in Hong Kong thanks to its breezy, pleasant weather, but the drop in humidity can have some not-so pleasant side effects. Even as it feels more comfortable to be outside, the drier air can dry out your skin. Luckily, there are a number of facial mists that are proven to effectively revitalise the skin along with additional beauty benefits. We’ve rounded up our top five picks for facial mists that have been tested and approved both by us and by beauty gurus worldwide. Keep these products handy, and you’ll never have to worry about your face drying out this fall and winter.
With a specially designed formula that combines high level of rejuvenating Pitera with the signature MoistureLock Complex, SK-II Mid-Day Miracle Essence (HK$450/50ml) not only works to bind water with skin tissue for locked-in hydration, but can also effectively penetrate through makeup with fine mist particles that are only a quarter the size of visible pores. As a result, its key ingredients fight the visible effects of oxidative stress and strengthen the skin.
