- Add to it a few drops of glycerin and lemon juice

- Let it stay on your face for 10 minutes and then remove.

Keep your skin fresh and hydrated during the summer days by purchasing a face mist. Avoid purchasing a low-quality one and do not bring in the money factor here as a high-quality one boasts ingredients that are enough to keep your skin from drying.
There are varieties of face mists in the market and should be chosen on the basis of your skin type and also the flavor you prefer.
And another tip to help you get rid of the dry skin is with the help of oil massage. Oil massages improve blood circulation and increase the oxygen flow to the face.
