10 simple beauty tricks that will instantly cool you down in summer
When it’s really hot, you just want to hole up at home and somehow escape the high temperatures. In fact, there are some beauty tricks, products and precautions that we can use to cool down and make everyday life more bearable even on super hot summer days. We’ll tell you now what they are.
Summer beauty tricks: How to cool down in the heat
1. Treat yourself to a cooling mist on your face
It’s not a summer day without a facial spray. Such facial mists are probably the easiest trick to cool down and refresh in between. We recommend products with aloe vera to moisturize the skin.
2. Put your skincare products in the (beauty) fridge
When it gets really hot, you want to put yourself in the fridge. Instead, we keep our favorite products there. On hot days, the cleanser, toner, concealer and foundation simply stick better there. But even when applied, the whole thing is quite pleasant due to the cold.
3. Put the toner in the freezer
With the toner we even go one step further. We recommend putting it in an ice cube tray and then freezing it. If you use it later, you can not only cool your skin, but also treat swelling.
4. Invest in a good hair tie
Wearing your hair tied back instead of loose on hot days can work wonders. Especially with a long mane, the neck cannot breathe at high temperatures and becomes sweaty.
5. Take a warm (!!!) shower
Sounds counterproductive, but it really helps. Short warm showers cause the body’s own cooling mechanisms to be triggered. In this case, it can actually be better than cooling off with cold water. In the latter case, the body increases its temperature to compensate.
6. Home cryotherapy
Ever heard of cryotherapy? This is a therapy that works with the targeted use of cold stimuli. It can’t hurt to have a few appropriate products ready. There are some tools online that you can use to treat yourself at home, such as an ice roller or a recovery face mask.
7. Cooling skincare products are a must
No matter how warm or cold it is, skincare is of course always important. In hot weather, however, we particularly rely on care products that have a cooling effect and may even tingle pleasantly on the skin.
8. Eye patches for a chill in between
Eye patches are part of the beauty routine like pasta is part of Italian cuisine. However, in this case we are talking about masks that contain a special gel that refreshes and cools. This will get us through the heat wave with ease.
9. Store aloe vera in the refrigerator
Aloe vera is an absolute all-rounder and THE beauty trick par excellence. In summer, we recommend keeping the natural wonder weapon in the fridge. The juice it contains has a cooling and calming effect and is also popular after sunbathing.
10. Use light gel moisturizer
If you like to apply a classic night cream in the evening, it has a short break during the heat wave. Instead, go with a gel moisturizer that has a lighter texture and keeps skin hydrated even on hot days.
