6 Grooming Products to Keep in the Fridge This Summer

The dog days of August are upon us, which means it’s time to break out every trick in your summer-busting arsenal. Our own favorite remedy is simple, yet sound: Keep your grooming products in the fridge to cool, and start your day with a brisk morning pick-me-up. To get you on your way, here are six grooming staples that are best served chilled.

Ernest Supplies Cooling Shave Cream

Crisp, cooling formulas aren’t limited to aftershave. This non-foaming shave gel is made with eucalyptus and menthol, which imparts a bracing tingle while it softens up your beard hairs. Keep the handy pouch on your condiment shelf, and the ice-cold sensation will be that much more effective.

Baxter of California After Shave Balm

Like the aforementioned shave cream, this postshave soother is infused with natural menthol, which gives it a tingly, bracing effect without the need for skin-drying alcohol. A healthy dose of aloe should handle inflammation, but a chilly drop in temperature will also help with redness and swelling.

Clinique for Men SPF 21 Moisturizer

Sun-soaked days demand a dose of SPF, whether you’re planning to be outside for five hours or five minutes. If you’d rather not suffer the scent of sunscreen, swap your daily moisturizer with a summer replacement, like this hybrid from Clinique for Men. The oil-free formula goes on light, and an added cooling sensation will complete the seasonal appeal.

Ursa Major Essential Face Wipes

If your office or apartment is short on A/C, you don’t have to suffer in silence. Keep a box of these pine-scented wipes in the fridge, and you can freshen up at will—all while wiping away grime and hydrating skin with wildcrafted oils and extracts.

Anthony Wake Up Call

If SPF moisturizer is a daily workhorse, then this is a high-powered specialist. A tailor-made remedy for late nights and puffy eyes, this formula pairs its functional ingredients (caffeine for elasticity, and green tea to reduce puffiness) with a feel-good burst of menthol and a crisp, citrusy aroma. The formula itself will cool on contact, but when left in the fridge to chill, the effect will perk you up more than a double shot of espresso.

Any and All Eye Creams

Summer heat and three-hour nights can do a number on your eyes, along with the skin beneath them. For the ultimate under-eye reboot, chill your already-potent eye cream in the fridge overnight, and dab it on in the morning to banish puffy bags and dark circles. Lab Series’ MAX LS Instant Eye Lift and Age Rescue + Eye Therapy are two stellar choices.
