Lifetrons Nano Mist Spray, $97
For those of you who fly frequently or spend long hours in air-conditioned environments, it’s inevitable that you will find your skin becoming dry and dehydrated due to the lack of moisture. If you don’t take measures to hydrate your skin, it might end up being rough and dull looking. Your face might also look greasier because your skin will produce more oil to compensate for the dryness. This spray is the perfect tool to instantly refresh parched skin and give you a radiant glow. It hydrates your skin from the inside-out by using ultrasonic technology to produce nanoparticles of water smaller than your pores that can penetrate deeper into the skin. You can also use it at the beginning of your beauty routine to prep your skin so that it can absorb skincare products better. Get it here.

Each treatment only lasts for 30 seconds and you can repeat it twice for mild acne such as whiteheads, blackheads and papules, and up to four times for moderate acne such as inflamed and sensitive bumps filled with pus. There is an in-built timer that signals the end of a 30-second cycle and a red cross-shaped targeting light that helps you to aim at the exact spot you wish to treat.
