What Are Cooling Body Products And What Do They Do?
Has summer been hot enough for you so far? Are you looking for creative new ways to keep your cool as the warm summer days and nights linger on? The good news is that there are a number of new cooling body products on the shelves of your local beauty supply store this season that can help you beat the summer heat in style.
The key to staying cool and fresh, no matter what the thermometer says, is to keep your skin well hydrated throughout the summer season. You can do this by drinking enough hydrating beverages every day – which totals at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water in each 24-hour period. You can also find some yummy cooling sprays and lotions that will refresh your skin as they offer much needed moisture.
Many of these products will also come in delightful scents that will tickle your olfactory senses as well. And these products are not only useful for the sun goddesses among us – women who are suffering from hot flashes in the pre-menopause years can also find relief with one of the many cooling body products available.
Most of us find that we need a little extra moisture in our skin when the sun begins to burn hot, and moisturizers are an obvious choice. To enhance the hydration experience, you can opt for a cooling body lotion that will refresh and cool overheated skin. The other benefit of these cooling formulas is that they can reduce inflammation and redness that can be the result of sunburn or heat rash. Ingredients that can aid in the cooling process include menthol, peppermint and soothing aloe. Try these cooling lotions after your shower to keep skin soft and smooth, or rub them on any time of day that you need a cooling boost.
Body sprays are always a popular choice in the summer because they add a subtle hint of fragrance while they are moisturizing and cooling. These sprays can be used whenever you need to refresh your skin. Spray them lavishly after a shower to keep you cool for hours, or give yourself a spritz every time the heat begins to creep up on you. These sprays come in a plethora of yummy fragrances, and many offer a handy travel size that you can tuck in your purse for a quick spritz wherever you are.
Hydrating mists are great for your face to help keep makeup intact.
Some come with natural spring water, and many are sans fragrance, making them a good choice for this sensitive area. For additional cooling action, keep your mist in the refrigerator until you are ready to use it. These also come in handy sizes that will fit into your purse, so that you can carry one to the gym, to the office, or even when traveling.
Sure, it’s hot this summer, but don’t let the heat cramp your style. Keep your cool with a variety of cooling body products that will keep you feeling fresh and hydrated all day long.
