Fake a Cold Shower
Nothing beats the heat faster than a chilly rinse. But if that sounds too intense, you can mimic the effects by lathering up with MALIN+GOETZ peppermint body scrub. Real peppermint creates a tingly, cooling sensation on the skin—the exfoliating scrub helps prevent ingrown hairs, too.
Don’t Feel the Burn
After a day in the sweltering sun, the last thing you need is a blistering reminder that you didn’t apply enough SPF. To take the sting out of a burn, try COOLA Environmental Repair Plus® Radical Recovery™ After-Sun Lotion. In addition to healing aloe vera, this lotion contains a host of organic ingredients—agave, rosemary, and lavender—to calm redness and numb the pain. Once your face is out of the danger zone, sooth any lingering irritation with nügg Beauty Soothing Mask, a ten-minute treatment that drenches skin with anti-inflammatory agents for an even-toned appearance.
Ease Sweltering Feet
Sweat has a regrettable tendency to accumulate in our closed-toed shoes and sandals. Translation: As the air outside gets steamier, our feet get smellier. Keep your dogs cool with Jasmine Seven™ Fresh Feet Wipes™ For Kids. These alcohol-free cloths have a blend of citrus oils to zap odor-causing bacteria, and they leave behind a refreshing grapefruit scent.
Get Your Hair Out of Your Face
This level of muggy heat makes us want to pull our hair out—or straight-up cut it off. Before you reach for the scissors, try tying your hair into a pony and slipping on Pink Pewter’s Georgia Headband. The stretchy elastic gently tames flyaways, while the rows of delicate beads will make heat-battered locks look chic and polished.
Refresh Your Your Complexion Fast
To soothe flushed cheeks, spritz them with derma e® Hydrating Mist with Hyaluronic Acid, an all-natural mist that instantly hydrates, cools, and refreshes skin. No need to wash your face first—the spray can be applied over makeup.
Cool Down Your Eyelids, Too
Two reasons why Laura Geller's Beauty Cool Lids Cream Eyeshadow is ideal for scorching summer days: cream formulas are less likely to melt off than powder varieties, and this formula actually cools skin on contact. It’s our (way prettier) alternative to wearing chilled cucumber slices on our eyes.
