13 Cooling Beauty Products That Will Be Your Saving Grace for Summer
On the hottest, most humid days, there’s no sweeter relief than swan diving into a 60-degree pool. But sadly, life’s not a continuous vacation so we must go for the next best thing: self-chilling beauty products. Infused with menthol, aloe and peppermint, these genius little inventions will help you hit the proverbial refresh button.
Skincool Ice Roller
Store it in the freezer and pass it over your face and neck on particularly rough mornings (or sticky afternoons). It reduces puffiness and inflammation better than any frozen bag of peas.
Handsderma Ice Roller ($23)
Cucumber De-Tox De-Puffing Eye-Cubes
Cucumber extract, aloe vera, arnica and caffeine work to soothe heat-blasted skin. Just pop the frozen pods into the included sachets and gently rub around your eyes.

After Sun Greek Yoghurt Cooling Gel
Made with actual Greek yogurt, this soothing lotion-gel hybrid is ideal for after-sun exposure. For extra benefits, keep yours refrigerated.
Anti-Fatigue Eye Gel
Don’t let the “for men” label deter you. This roller ball instantly revitalizes any tired eyes from the inevitable Aperol-Spritz-fueled night.

Some days you just can’t be bothered with moisturizing cream. That’s where this guy comes in. The seawater-and caffeine-infused stick replenishes your skin with one refreshing stroke.
