Chill Out1 of 9
By Lisa Cohen Lee
With the temperature hitting triple digits around the country, we'll do just about anything to beat the heat. Enter cooling beauty formulas, bronzing sprays, mists and serums that offer a soothing, icy touch.
Go for the Bronze2 of 9
Mist on a water-based bronzing formula that gives gams a shot of cold when applied. The washable formula dries in seconds and won't come off on clothes—but who's covering legs in this heat anyway?

Balmy weather can lead to puffy eyes. To reduce swelling, apply this soothing serum. The metal ball in the roller serum stays cool, while the mint extracts refresh and revive. For an even frostier effect, store it in the fridge.

Coconut Chiller4 of 9
Yes, drinking water is essential to keeping cool, but spraying it all over is like giving your body its own hit of air conditioning. "Anything that creates evaporation on your skin will physically drive away the heat," says Ruthie Harper, M.D., based in Austin. Spritz on a watery mist like this one—which has ultra-hydrating coconut water.

Heat and makeup just don't mix. To prevent a major meltdown, use a primer. This lightweight formula feels icy going on, thanks to a stainless-steel applicator—just make sure to keep it in a cool place. In addition to a chill application, the formula also keeps foundation from slipping and streaking.
Make It Minty6 of 9
Need to freshen up after a sweltering day? Try mint-infused skincare. "The menthol in mint directly impacts hot and cold receptors in the skin, making you feel cooler," says Dr. Harper. Keep a peppermint-laced body wash, like this one, in your shower; a cool stream of water will enhance the icy sensation.

Cool as a Cucumber8 of 9
Spent a little too much time in the sun? Bring on the cucumbers. "Cucumber has natural calming and anti-inflammatory properties that take down heat immediately," says Dr. Harper. Apply this soother over sun-drenched areas; the extracts of aloe vera and cucumber will calm it down, while the mica particles will give you a shimmery, glowy sheen.

Scalp Soother9 of 9
To avoid overheating when styling your hair, run a dryer on the coolest setting through your hair and scalp. (This new dryer's cool button reaches 75 degrees in two seconds—most brands only go down to 90 degrees and take over five seconds to get there.) For frizz control, brush away flyaways with heat for a minute, then blast with the cold button to lock in shine.
