Was Cleopatra the world's first beauty trendsetter? The resurgence of facial mists infused with rose water, which the Egyptian queen reportedly used to keep her complexion supple, certainly gives credence to the idea. These sprays are like an oasis for desert-dry skin: Spritz one on whenever you need a boost of plumping hydration. And forget ingredients labels that read like hieroglyphics—today's varieties are refreshingly pared down, deriving their power from an array of natural extracts. How regal.
