Sometimes, you just need to tell your skin to chill out! And there’s no time more appropriate than when it’s as hot as Hades out there. So keep calm, cool and collected this summer (did we say cool?) with these mists, gels and SPFs!

Cooling Products

1. Kiehl’s Activated Sun Protector Water-Light Lotion For Face & Body SPF 30

Forget the typical thick and chalky SPF! This broad spectrum sunscreen instantly transforms into a water-like finish for all-over protection that’s not only ultra lightweight, but also cooling and refreshing — making it quite useful for those 100-plus-degree beach days!

2. The Body Shop Elderflower Cooling Eye Gel

Late night? Time for a refresher (and we don’t just mean that glass of water you should be drinking)! Instantly cool, soothe and refresh those puffy peepers to hide the evidence of last night’s summer rendezvous.

Urban Decay Chill Cooling and Hydrating Makeup Setting Spray

Prevent a beauty meltdown with a setting spray that actually chills the surface of your makeup for up to 12 hours of just-applied wear — so that you (and your skin) can literally chill out!

Vichy Aqualia Thermal SPF 25

Put away your morning moisturizer for the rest of the summer and swap in this daily sunscreen. Enriched with thermal spa water, this oil-free and ultra refreshing lotion delivers an immediate cooling sensation on contact. If your cup of Joe didn’t fully wake you up — this will!

Biotherm Biocils Gel

We know how tricky removing eye makeup can be. And we can appreciate a makeup remover that doesn’t turn our peepers beet red. The cooling gel of Biocils quickly dissolves eye makeup for a fresh (not irritated) feel that’s safe for both sensitive eyes and even contact-lens wearers.
