We love a multipurpose product over at Mane Addicts, especially one with serious rejuvenating powers. And during the hottest season of the year, rejuvenation is everything.
We’re always on the market for super-soothing, ultra-hydrating products to combat the harsh effects of the summer sun on our skin and strands, from scalp burns to dryness and everything in-between. So naturally we were over the moon when we discovered Tower 28’s SOS Daily Rescue Facial Spray, a cult favorite skincare product that doubles as scalp treatment. This 100% natural facial spray is the ultimate skin savior, combatting breakouts, sunburns, and other irritations with ease. The multitasking mist can be used from head to toe. Dream come true, right?
We got the inside scoop on this powerful product from Dr. Kelly Killeen, double board certified plastic surgeon at Cassileth Plastic Surgery & Skin Care in Beverly Hills (and soon to be cast member of Dr. 90210 on E! this fall). Read on for Dr. Killeen’s in-depth breakdown on summer’s must-have beauty buy.
Tower 28’s SOS Daily Rescue Facial Spray is ideal for all skin types
Sensitive skin types rejoice, this facial mist is truly a universal skincare solution. “Tower 28’s formulation is gentle, easy to find, and safe to use on all people. It’s base is a simple salt solution that is gentle enough for even the most sensitive clients.” Dr. Killeen explains, “because the base is so gentle and non-drying, it’s a great product to also use in the hair or scalp for irritation from color treatments, or skin conditions such as psoriasis.”
As if it’s healing powers weren’t enough to seal the deal, Tower 28’s SOS Daily Rescue Facial Spray also has styling properties. Dr. Killeen says, “there are even some people finding that it leaves their hair with a just out of the ocean vibe similar to sea salt sprays.” A double win.
Antimicrobial properties are the key to the mist’s soothing power
Tower 28’s facial spray is particularly unique, not just for its multipurpose uses but also for its revolutionary formula. Powered by hero ingredient hypochlorous acid, this skin-saving spray triggers an immune boost on impact, working with your body to heal from within. “The antimicrobial properties of this product are key in helping soothe irritated skin” Dr. Killeen begins. “One of the biggest problems with healing areas of irritation is secondary infection. ” she continues, “by keeping the bacteria away, you allow your body to heal more effectively.”
But the SOS Daily Rescue Facial Spray has more to offer than just bacteria banishment. It also minimizes inflammation and increases blood flow to the area where it’s applied.
Daily use is the best approach for soothing an irritated scalp
“I use SOS twice daily as part of my normal skincare routine. It is my first step following cleansing” Dr. Killeen shares. For hair and scalp application, Dr. Killeen recommends twice daily daily use to eliminate irritation. “You can also use SOS following a tough workout” she says, “I’ve found it helps not only keep my hair from getting frizzy, but also helps prevent the irritation I get from sweaty hair.” Is there anything this multitasking mist can’t do?
If you’re experiencing flare ups or blemishes, an additional midday spritz of SOS will help soothe those struggles. Dr. Killeen also recommends using SOS if you’re struggling with mask-related acne. “If I have blemishes, or am wearing a mask for hours, I’ll spray midday as well” she explains, “I’ve found this is helpful in prevention and treatment of maskne (acne from wearing a mask all day).” In the age of COVID-19, we’ll definitely be needing more products like Tower28’s SOS Daily Rescue Facial Spray!
