Cucumber Water Stick, $42 at ILIA
Don't let the solid formulation fool you. This is actually a cooling toner. The vegan, water-based product is designed so it can be used on the go. It has aloe extract to help hydrate and chicory root to boost collagen production. Use it after cleansing and any time skin could do with a refresher. It can also be used on the neck, décolletage and the rest of the body.
Cooling Aqua Facial Mist, $15 at Revolve
Facial mists are hero products for staying cool during summer heat waves. Keep this one within reach and spray skin every time it could do with a refresher. It's suitable for all skin types and moisturizes skin as it cools it down thanks to amino acids, aloe and antioxidants.
RefreshMint Cucumber & Bamboo Eye De-Puffer, $9.95 at Physicians Formula
Don't forget about the eye area. The easy-to-apply stick is jam-packed with soothing ingredients, including peppermint, cucumber, bamboo, aloe vera and glacial water. The dermatologist-tested product moisturizes, cools and depuffs the eye area so you can say goodbye to bags. It absorbs quickly and won't mess with concealer application.
Too Cool For School
Coconut Pure Soothing Gel, $18 at Ulta Beauty
There's a lot of consideration about what we apply to skin before stepping out in the sun, but we don't think about what to apply after nearly as much. After-sun products are important because they help replenish moisture and soothe. This lotion has liquid ice technology that uses temperature-sensing calcium irons and gentle ingredients to calm skin. There's no menthol or alcohol here. The lightweight gel formula is a nice alternative to heavy creams.
The Antidote Cooling Daily Lotion, $45 at Skyn Iceland
This is one cooling product that's worth having in your routine all year round. It's a daily moisturizing lotion to treat redness, breakouts and oily to combination skin. Apply it after cleansing and you'll be able to actually feel the cooling sensation courtesy of a mint derivative. With everyday use, it detoxifies and fortifies for healthy, less stressed skin.
Cooling Water, $24 at Sephora
Yes, it's "cooling water" in a handy stick. It's formulated with anti-inflammatory sea water, caffeine and aloe to get rid of puffiness and hydrate skin. Use it on the face, eye area and even the body. Pro tip: Pop it in the fridge overnight and use it in the morning to energize skin. Late night? What late night?
Chill Cooling and Hydrating Makeup Setting Spray, $32 at Sephora
Summer is all about effortless beauty. If you like the idea of a cooling beauty product but aren't into the idea of having to reapply it, try this multitasking makeup setting spray. Apply it after makeup to prevent it from migrating. The moisture-resistant setting spray also has a cooling time-release formula that chills the surface of makeup to help it stay fresh and keep skin cool.
Cool Spearmint & Thyme Body Wash, $7.99 at Ulta Beauty
Having a literal ice bath may initially sound appealing, but it can lose its appeal when your teeth start chattering. Instead, try this exhilarating body wash. Lather it on in the tub or shower and the formula clears the mind and soothes skin. It's as enjoyable applied after a long day stomping the pavement as it is when used to help wake up in the morning.
Hit Refresh Cooling Moisturizer With Hawaiian Mineral Water, $35 at Origins
Don't wait for skin to get scorching to use a cooling beauty product. Make this cooling moisturizer part of your skin care routine for a refreshing burst post-cleanse. The lightweight cream-gel has fortified Hawaiian mineral water, eucalyptus, mint and spearmint essential oils for a refreshing cool feeling.
Cold Plunge Pore Mask, $36 at Sephora
There's a mask to target every skin care concern. That includes this one for hot, oily skin with uneven texture and enlarged pores. The detoxifying mask is inspired by the "cold plunge" in a Scandinavian sauna cycle. There's no need for the hot treatment because the cold part smooths skin, manages oil and minimizes pores. It comes in a soothing (and Instagram-friendly) turquoise clay.
Primed & Peachy Cooling Matte Perfecting Primer, $32 at Sephora
Why settle for any primer when you can get a cooling one? The multitasking product blurs, brightens and smooths. It offers over 12 hours of shine control and over 16 hours of long wear. We encourage you to put it to the test. Just like the brand's other sweet-smelling products, this one smells like peaches and sweet fig milk. Yum.
Cool Down Hydrating After Sun Lotion, $11.99 at Ulta Beauty
Stay calm, cool and collected with this after-sun lotion. The lightweight, nongreasy formula has aloe, vitamin E and cocoa butter to replenish skin's moisture levels and soothe. For best results, gently apply to burned skin. It can even be applied before setting out into the great outdoors.
The joy of spending days and nights outdoors is the reason we can’t wait for summer each year, but the unbearable heat, faucet-like dripping sweat and stickiness we could do without. When it comes to summer beauty, we have a couple of objectives: find a sunscreen that we genuinely want to use, stock up on smudge-proof makeup products that will stand up to sweat and, of course, keep cool. Though crop tops, sandals and beach vacays can help us in our quest to stay comfortable in the summer heat, cooling beauty products happen to be our secret weapon of choice. They contain calming ingredients like cucumber, mint, yogurt and aloe and are guaranteed to chill you out in seconds.
Some cooling beauty products are meant to be applied after sun exposure, others while out in the sun and some can be used any time our skin needs a refreshing pick-me-up. What’s more, they can work beyond summer, especially when skin is feeling sensitive. You can even store some of the products in the fridge for a more intense cooldown.
Next time the temperature soars, grab a hat, a cold drink of water (or a boozy slushie) and one of these cooling products to beat the heat this summer.
