We love summer heat, but we don’t like looking like the summer heat.Even though we wish we could be jumping into a refreshing pool every other hour, that’s not always possible. We can dream, right? These cooling beauty products will help keep you fresh from head to toe, while keeping your skin happy and your makeup looking like you’re not about to melt.
Yves Rocher – Light Legs Fresh Gel
This gel lotion, which is okay for any skin type, helps give tired and heavy legs a little boost—especially nice if you’re doing a summer hike! The cooling effect from the almost all natural lotion is from the menthol, a great ingredient to keep an eye out for if you want that fresh sensation.
Ole Henriksen – Cold Plunge Pore Mask
The ice blue colour of the mask is enough to cool you down, but thankfully it’s not just the look. Taking inspiration from the “cold plunge” part of a Scandinavian sauna cycle, this cooling clay mask detoxifies, controls oil and reduces the look of pores. Honestly never a bad combo when you’re spending your days sweating!
Becca – Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder
This powder has beauty gurus confused in the best way. It applies feeling wet, but is a powder! It’s 50% water and can be used on its own, to set foundation, or to freshen up whenever you need to.
MILK – Cooling Water Stick
This portable little stick is your morning BFF. It cools you down while helping your face depuff, which is helpful after a summer patio session the night before! Pro tip: keep this in the fridge and it’ll be extra refreshing in the AM.
IGK – Low Key Scalp Scrub
Summer means takin’ it easy and sometimes that means dry shampoo gets the best of you and that’s okay. This scalp scrub gets rid of product build up, helps revive your hair from heat-styling damage and cools you down with some peppermint freshness.
Avène – Thermal Water
Water in a can might sound a little extra and it is—but you deserve it. Bring it with you to cool down at the office, soothe a sunburn after a swim, or refresh your makeup any time. It’s even handy to have on your nightstand if you’re without AC!
TOO FACED – Primed & Peachy Cooling Matte Perfecting Primer
In the summer, we all look a little too glowy because of the sweaty sheen, thanks Mother Nature. This primer helps you stay matte and cools your skin down as the first step in your makeup routine. Plus that peachy scent? So perfect for summer!
Urban Decay – Chilling Cooling & Hydrating Mist
Urban Decay is known for their makeup setting sprays but when the temperature rises, you want to reach for Chill. Especially great for people with drier skin (and in the summer, we all need hydration), it’s weightless, moisture-resistant and has cooling time-release that works for up to 12 hours.
Burt’s Bees – Beeswax Lip Balm
An OG lip balm fave that can truly do no wrong. Made with beeswax (of course) and Vitamin E, this balm will help keep your lips from drying out during heat waves. They come in so many flavours but keep your eye out for peppermint in the ingredients if you want the tingly, cooling effect.
