Your pores go through a lot in one day. From hot shower water to dry office air, many factors can really suck the moisture from your skin. Sure, you can lotion up before you leave the house, but moisturizer doesn’t last forever, and you might feel your face feeling tight and dehydrated come afternoon.  

If you’re looking for the perfect pocket-sized pick-me-up when that 4 p.m. work slump hits, try the hydrating face mists below. On low-concentration moments or dry skin days, just one spritz will feel like a true pore-saver.
