Mists are trending. There are new mists being launched by some of my favorite brands, such as Elizabeth Dehn for One Love Organics, and my most recent find is Kat Burki Beauty Elixir ($42). I am — just in time for summer — a complete convert to the virtues of mists.

Mists are not to be dismissed as a decadent and non-essential spritz. The best formulated ones are a spray on moisturizer delivering all manner of good things without the need to layer yet another cream. Experimenting with when to use them, I mostly think they work best when used after cleansing and before my serum. But I am certainly not beyond a refreshing top up spray later in the day over whatever I am wearing (the day’s regimen of serum, sunscreen, light makeup).

My version of Kat Burki Beauty Elixir is in Rose Peony, and I love the delicate scent. One of the main ingredients is methylsufonylmethane (MSM), a sulfur compound that occurs naturally in some plants and enhances tissue pliability and encourages the repair of damaged skin. If there is insufficient sulfur in the body when new cells are being manufactured, the new cells will be rigid. When sufficient sulfur is present for new cells, the skin is softer, smoother and more flexible.

Colloidal silver is helpful for acne and blemishes, and R lipoic acid is a powerful antioxidant that works by containing free radicals, thereby reducing oxidative damage. There’s a touch of glycolic acid for exfoliation.  Most of the rest of the formula is based on botanical extracts such as camu camu, an Amazonian shrub with tons of vitamin C and amino acids and vitamins.

There’s absolutely nothing to dislike with Kat Burki’s all natural formula, and it’s a great way to hydrate with vitamins and antioxidants.
