Uriage Eau Thermale d’Uriage spray, $19

When we say ‘stress’ you probably think deadlines. Running late. Nothing to wear.

But your skin is constantly under threat from a different kind of stress every day – it’s called oxidative stress – and it can do some serious damage to even the most cared-for complexions.

That’s where this stuff comes in. Pretty much holy water for your skin in a spray can, this filtered water is packed with minerals to hydrate and protect your skin cells from all the nasties. It’s 100% natural, and gentle enough to use on any skin type (it’s actually recommended if you’re prone to eczema or psoriasis).

You can put it on under or over your makeup and apply as many times as you want throughout the day.

Our advice? Keep it close at all times. Your skin will seriously thank you for it.
