We’re right in the middle of the hottest month of the year, and some days, the heat can be too much. Not only is it uncomfortable but it can cause things like heat rash and skin puffiness, so we’ve put together a list of beauty tips to help you stay cool in the hot weather during your skincare and shower routines, as well as throughout the day. Make sure to stay hydrated this summer, and read on below to see our tips.
1. Put your shower jelly in the freezer.
2. On beach days, bring your facial mists and put them in your cooler.
If you’re someone who always has Glossier‘s Face Mist ready in your bag, this is the perfect tip for you. Toss any toners, facial mists or sea sprays in your cooler when you’re at the beach, so your skin can get a dose of cold hydration while you’re tanning.
3. Switch up your hot baths for cold water baths.
Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean you can’t take a bath. Bath bombs work even if the water temperature is lukewarm or cold, so you can keep up your self-care routines through the hotter months.
4. Stop chaffing with dusting powders.
Skin chaffing problems are real in the summer and it’s nothing to be embarrassed about. Go for dusting powders such as Lush’s Silky Underwear ($10.95 USD) or if you’re in a pinch, lip balm and baby powder works as well.
5. Put your jade rollers in the fridge.
Rose quartz and jade rollers are made for depuffing your face, so give the facial tools a boost by putting them in the fridge.
6. Save your iced tea bags for your eyes.
After you’ve made ice tea, keep the tea bags to put over your eyes. The tannin in tea bags helps reduce swelling and skin discoloration.
7. Make serum ice cubes.
Grab an ice cube tray and place a few drops of serum in. After it’s frozen, you can rub the cold serum ice cubes on your face until it’s melted.
8. Use a gel sleep mask.
To relieve tired eyes and counter dark circles, throw a gel eye mask into the fridge or freezer, and wear it to sleep. After summer is over, you can still use them as heat masks to soothe headaches and alleviate congestion.
