Toners can help clear up a break out, reduce signs of aging and prevent oily skin. Although there are a variety of different toners you can use during cold weather, it’s important to use a hydrating toner.

3. Mario Badescu Facial Spray With Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater

The great thing about this hydrating facial spray is that it comes in a travel size that makes it convenient to bring anywhere with you, from the office to the gym. This spray can be used in the morning, afternoon or night. With the cool weather, it’s common for your face to feel dry and flaky mid-day, but since you already have makeup on, it can be challenging to reapply a moisturizer. This rose spray is gentle and hydrating and allows you to easily freshen up and quickly add some hydration to your face without messing up your makeup. For guys, it’s a great way to refresh after a sweaty workout at the gym.

It’s Active Rush Technology makes the cream turn to liquid once it is in contact with your skin so you don’t get that thick goopy feeling, while making your face fill instantly hydrated.
