We love the summer—and everything that goes with it. But the sizzling temperatures can make staying fresh from head to toe a challenge. Luckily, these nine beauty products can help you beat the heat to look cool, calm and collected. Shu Uemura Art of Hair Essential Drops Even if you’ve worked up a sweat from shaking this bottle, once you massage the contents into your scalp before shampooing, the peppermint oil will lower your temp. Or, add a few drops to your favorite shampoo to give it an icy blast. Redken Mint Rush Hair & Body Wash Another borrowed-from-the-boys item, this two-in-one refreshes heat-stricken skin and scalps with a blend of peppermint and menthol and softens them with glycerin and vitamin E. L’Oréal EverPure Moisture Leave-In Conditioner A hint of peppermint lends an invigorating effect to this lightweight leave-in conditioner. Tip: Before hopping into the pool, run a few squirts of this through wet hair to help keep out chlorine. MAC Magically Cool Liquid Powder Is it a liquid or a powder? Composed of 70 percent water, this highlighter can be whatever you want it to be due to its ability to set makeup, soak up oil and lend skin an otherworldly glow. And, it feels chilly on contact! Skindinavia No More Shine Makeup Finish Acting like an icebox in a bottle, this setting spray cools the makeup on the surface of your face to a slippage-preventing 75 degrees. EOS Sweet Mint Organic Lip Balm A swipe of this tingly lip hydrator will have you smiling through the heat, and its spherical container is cute and easy to find in your beach bag! Shaveworks The Cool Fix So what if this cooling gel is made for men’s mugs? When used on dry skin after shaving, it gently exfoliates and paves the way for bump-free bikini areas and gams. Plus, it soothes razor burn! Mission Enduracool Instant Cooling Towel Though this high-tech towel is made with athletes in mind, that shouldn’t stop you from slinging one around your neck. When in contact with sweat or water, wrung out and then snapped in the air, it effectively chills you out for hours on end. Herban Essentials Peppermint Towelettes Pop these handy refreshing wipes in your bag; they’re amazing for cooling you down and wiping the filth off your flip-floppin’ feet. What products do you turn to help beat the heat?
