We wait all year for the glorious sunshine and balmy days of summer, but when it finally comes around, coping with the heat on a daily basis can be easier said than done.  

From tossing and turning at night to overheating on the tube or struggling through the aftereffects of sunburn (PSA: use SPF every day, people), the beauty industry has recognised the need for refreshing products to keep you cool. 

And it’s not just feeling uncomfortable heat can cause a blotchy complexion, melting make up, sticky strands, redness and sweating, to name but a few. How is one meant to live their best life this way? 

To make maintaining a cool, composed complexion just that little bit easier, we recommend reaching for these cooling essentials instead. It’s time for your skin (and body) to have a breather... 

TEAM CULT BEAUTY’S COOLING PICKS 

"The Lancaster Cooling Invisible Body Mist SPF 50is at the top of my beach bag packing list every time, as I find that it's the easiest way to top up that all-important UV protection throughout the day (essential for my quick-to-burn skin)Even when spritzed on sandy, salty and damp limbs it leaves no greasy residue, which is essential criteria for me. Plus, it's infused with a cooling agent that makes it a soothing antidote if I ever overdo it in the heat." Liv, Midweight Copywriter

“When I'm feeling hot and overwhelmed in the summer months, my favourite thing to do is put the Pacifica Chill Baby Cooling Cryo Globes in the fridge to cool me down later. Featuring two different sizes, these globes fit perfectly into every nook and cranny of my face and neck. I massage them all over and hold them for longer over the particularly hot, tired or puffy parts of my face. Trust me when I say you'll look glowy, sculpted and far less sweaty!” Amy, Product Copywriter

“The deliciously minty Caudalie Beauty Elixir is an icon for very good reason... With an ultra-fine spray that leaves skin feeling tingly fresh when I’m decidedly bothered, this feels as though it cleanses my aura (I call it the ‘sage’ of my skin care collection) and helps to recentre both my skin and my spirits. The ideal public transport pick-me-up, this is also a pool, sea or... pond-side essential. So, whether you're destined for Dubrovnik or plan to spend the summer lounging by your local lido, this spritz keeps you chilled when the mercury soars.” Verity, Content Editor

“Luxury is in the little things and the Patchology Serve Chilled Rosé Eye Gels are not to be underestimated. After a long night out or a day spent staring at screens, this skin care staple does a great job of unveiling an under-eye area that appears rested, lifted and brighter than before. The magic is in the hyaluronic acid, which is the key to unlocking a dew-drenched complexion! It’s a hassle-free beauty hack that I'm always excited to share...” Precious, Midweight Copywriter
