Beat the heat this Ramadan with these facial mists that pack a punch
Between Malaysia's sweltering heat and fasting from dawn to dusk, your skin is likely to suffer this month. From dehydration to dullness, steering clear of your daily two litres of H2O is bound to have adverse effects on your complexion.
