Summer is just starting to heat up, and it won’t be long until higher temperatures and humidity begin to take a toll. Sure, air conditioning is key for staying cool, but what can you do when you’re out and about? Pop these refreshing products in your bag and you can chill out anywhere!
Iceland The Antidote Cooling Daily Lotion
Perfect for summer (when you want to lighten up your skincare), this soothing moisturizer delivers a cool sensation on contact. With a fresh, minty scent and a lightweight texture that absorbs in a flash, this moisturizer is sure to help you wake up in the morning—and fight breakouts and visible signs of aging all day. I can only imagine how great this would feel in the event of a sunburn or rosacea flare-up…
Sun Hydrating Aloe Mist
Too much fun in the sun? Reach for this spray. With moisturizing and soothing aloe, vitamin E to combat any free-radical damage generated by UV rays, and menthol for a big chill on contact, this is a lifesaver for summer. No matter how hot it may be outside, the spray keeps its cool and a spritz on the back of the neck is a like a cool breeze even if there isn’t one.
Paris Advanced Suncare Invisible Protect Clear Cool Down Lotion SPF 50+
I can’t believe it took so long for cooling sunscreens to become mainstream. Although my son runs away when he sees me coming with this (he’s 6), I don’t think I could live without this broad-spectrum SPF. With none of the sticky or white residue and the power to reduce skin temperature by 4 degrees when it’s 90+, I’m already on my second bottle. And since it’s fortified with antioxidants like green tea and grapeseed extract, I don’t have to worry about skin damage (at least for the few hours I’m outside).
Do you have any products or tricks for cooling down when the temperature heats up?
