Katie Wright offers eight facial mists to keep you cool this summer.

A quick spritz can make all the difference to your complexion.

Depending on the ingredients, a mist can help tackle everything from redness and puffiness, to a lacklustre complexion.

Close your eyes and hold the bottle about 20cm from your face as you spray a few pumps in a circular motion, allowing the tiny droplets to sink in, before applying your serum or face cream.

Here are eight highly-rated buys for whatever your skin concern...

1. Only Good The Hydrator Mist & Facial Toner, £9.99, Holland and Barrett
