We’ve all seen the reports of a major heatwave coming our way, and although most of us are relishing the idea of a bit of sun on our faces, keeping cool is also important. With this in mind, we thought we’d highlight some of our best products for helping to keep your skin cool.
This toner is designed for acne-prone, teenage skin, but it’s pretty good at cooling any skin type down. It contains salicylic acid and twelve gentle botanicals which help to refresh, energise and revive skin. It contains tea tree, which acts as an antiseptic and antimicrobial that kills bacteria, as well as hamamelis virginiana water, a cooling astringent and antioxidant.
At the end of a long, hot day, taking your make up off can feel blissful, especially if you use this make-up remover from Elemis. It cleanses the delicate eye and lip area of all traces of make-up, including stubborn waterproof mascara and contains cooling white tea to soothe and refresh.
This cleanser from Dermalogica is a soothing, pH-balanced gel/cream that glides easily over face and eyes to cleanse without stripping your skins protective barrier whilst helping to calm and cool sensitised or highly reactive skin. It contains cucumber fruit extract, which has cooling agents that help soothe and calm irritated skin.
This gel from Elemis is one of the most cooling products we carry and is designed to be used on hot, tired legs and aching muscles. It contains cooling camphor and menthol which cool, refresh and revive the body, and is especially excellent for use when travelling.
This cooling lip balm is made from a nourishing white bees wax base which is rich in vitamins and is blended with peppermint to cool and smooth. It gives the lips and tingly, cooling sensation and helps to restore elasticity and suppleness. It’s formulated in line with the ELEMIS Promise, which means it contains no parabens, sodium laureth sulphate (SLS or SLES), DEA, mineral oil or artificial colours.
