Chances are, if you work in an office, one the first things you do when you get in the door at home is lather your face in nourishing moisturiser. 

From the air conditioning to the lack of daylight during the workday, I don’t know about you, but my skin feels like somebody just held a hairdryer up and sucked all the moisture out of my skin after eight hours of sitting at my desk. 

Luckily for us, a number of clever beauty brands out there have created a range of hydrating mists to keep your skin in tip-top shape throughout the workday.

Here’s our pick of the best:

The Jojoba Company water toning mist - $19.95

Jojoba Water Toning Mist includes jojoba leaf extract, jojoba milk and hydrolysed jojoba esters, along with vitamin C-rich desert lime.

All of these ingredients promise to give your skin a much-needed hit of hydration, firm it up and visibly reduce the size of pores.

Jurlique Elderberry & Freesia Hydrating Mist - $52

If you’re on the hunt for one mist that will look great on your work desk and also soothe your skin throughout the day, then look no further than this botanical mist.

Not only is it super hydrating but it also smells like roses and leaves you feeling refreshed.

Elizabeth Arden Eight House Miracle Hydrating Mist - $38

Featuring superfoods such as acai, goji and pomegranate fruit extract, the Elizabeth Arden mist is perfect for packing your skin with antioxidants and nutrients throughout the day.

It can be used to hydrate your skin in morning, before applying makeup, post-gym or before you go to bed at night. Plus it’s the perfect size to fit in your carry-on luggage so you can get your misting fix while traveling.

Nuggett x Charlie Happiness Revitalise Face Mist - $49

Rejuvenate your skin after hours of air conditioning with this 50ml bottle of hydrating goodness. With ingredients such as orange blossom, aloe vera and apricot oil, each droplet promises to increase your skin’s vitality.

Use it to reset makeup, as a post-workout refresh or as your saviour during a long-haul flight. All you have to do is hold it about 20cm from your face and spray it two to three times.

Bioeffect Osa Water Mist - $59.95

This mist contains optimised hyaluronic acid, which saves parched skin from turning into something that resembles the Sahara Desert. Spritz your face with this water mist as often as you like throughout the day to hydrate and strengthen the skin.

Best of all, it has a mattifying effect and it’s fragrance and alcohol-free so use it to your heart’s content.
