When it comes to summer in the city, there’s a big difference between a dewy glow and a layer of sweat. We prefer the first one, thank you. But for those of us who weren’t born with it, we’ve got Soapwalla’s Facial Toning Mists. The Gowanus, Brooklyn-based skincare company offers this pregnancy-friendly product in three versions — Balancing, Essential and Hydrating — so there’s a formulation for every face. And all three are vegan, and made with the highest quality organic and food-grade ingredients. Because when you’re growing another human being, we know that what you put on your skin is just as important as what you put inside of it.
Soapwalla “Chef” Rachel Winard says the Facial Toning Mists can be applied in the morning as part of your skincare routine, or during the day when you need a cool blast on your pores. For those super-steamy city days, Winard recommends throwing the mist in the fridge before applying, or better yet, giving yourself a spritz, then standing in front of fan. (We tried it. It feels good.) So next time you emerge from a sticky subway station, or find yourself smushed between bodies on a busy city sidewalk, give yourself a little spritz and awaken your most beautiful summer skin. $38, soapwallakitchen.com
