9 Products to Keep You Cool in the Heat

The temperatures are rising, folks. And while we might be able to crank up the A/C or go for a refreshing dip in the pool, these options aren't always available. Sometimes, you need back-up, like a moisture-wicking mattress topper or a hydrating facial mist — stat. We asked some of our favorite SwearBy editors for the products they turn to stay cool in the summer heat. Ahead, the cooling products they swear by to save them from melting this season.

Milk Makeup Cooling Water

“This cooling gel might be made for under-eye use but I use it all over my face and neck in the summer for instant relief from the heat. The caffeine in the formula helps to de-puff my skin (which is great as my face tends to swell a bit in the heat), while the seawater helps to hydrate my complexion. Tip: I keep the Cooling Water in my fridge so it feels even more refreshing when I swipe it on.” –Stephanie Perry

Allswell 2" Energex Memory Foam Mattress Topper Infused with Graphite

As someone who tends to overheat at night, I’m always on the lookout for cooling bedding products. So when I heard that one of my favorite home brands, Allswell, just launched a mattress topper that had moisture-wicking and cooling properties, I knew I had to give it a try. The topper features two inches of plush Energex memory foam padding that contours to my body and helps relieve pressure on my back as I sleep. In addition to providing ample airflow and moisture-wicking capabilities, the cozy pad is also infused with cooling graphite and copper gel, which work together to absorb body heat. Normally in the summertime, I would wake up in a pool of sweat unless I’ve had the AC blasting all night, but since I’ve been using this mattress pad I’ve stayed cool and dry with just a fan on.” –Rebecca Carhart

Caudalie Eau de Beauté Beauty Elixir

“I tend to overheat easily in summer’s scorching heat, so it’s important for me to carry something wherever I go that instantly cools me down. Caudalie’s Eau de Beauté toning mist is my go-to because it’s incredibly refreshing and made of all-natural ingredients such as mint and rose extract. It smells absolutely divine, too, almost like an essential oil mist that wakes you up and hydrates you at the same time. Plus, the travel-sized bottle fits easily in my bags and purses, so I never have to worry about not being able to bring it on the go.” –Nina Huang

Honeywell HT 900 TurboForce Air Circulator Fan

“The first summer I lived in New York I didn’t have an air conditioner, but this little fan was a life-saver. It’s small yet powerful, and it isn’t too noisy. Plus, the low price can’t be beat. You can use it to cool down a small room or position it for a targeted breeze if you’re in a larger space.” –Christie Calucchia

Hopsulator Slim | Seafoam

“In 100% Mean Girls fashion, one time I saw my friend with her own BrüMate… so I bought a BrüMate. But really, I never believed in using traditional drink koozies and felt they were more about looks than practicality—until I found out about this game-changing brand. It keeps your drinks cold for a ridiculous amount of time, even in the sweltering sun, and I love this one because it fits my beloved White Claw and Truly cans perfectly.” –Jayla Andrulonis

Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist

“I love to spritz this all over my face after applying makeup to give it a dewy finish – plus, its great for keeping on you whenever your skin needs a hydrating refresh. Stick it in the fridge for a quick facial cool down throughout the hot days ahead, too.” –Maya Gandara

Dermal Korea Collagen Essence Sheet Masks

“I’ve been a fan of sheet masks as an end-of-day treat for a while now, but it wasn’t until a former coworker suggested popping them in the fridge for cool relief that I started seeing them as a summer essential. I’ve tried several different brands, but keep coming back to these Amazon best-sellers. They’re gentle and ultra-hydrating, leaving my skin feeling dewy and soothed. Plus, the 16-piece pack tackles a wide variety of skin care, from hydrating and brightening to firming and soothing. Best of all, they’re a steal—costing about 60 cents a mask—so I don’t mind using one to cool down every night of the season.” –Katie Macdonald

Cooluli Mini Fridge

“Sure, this sleek fridge is great for keeping beverages and food chilled, but I’ve become obsessed with this mini fridge for another reason entirely. This little wonder serves as a skincare fridge in my bathroom, keeping my topicals at their ideal temperature. Not only do they last longer, but they feel even more refreshing during the hot summer months if they’ve been chilling for a while. The compact fridge is also perfect for storing teeth whitening gels and strips. I like to keep a few face rollers, eye masks, and an icy gel pack in there too, so I’m prepared when facial puffiness or the occasional headache strikes.” –Jessica Leigh Mattern 

Vitamin A Playa Shirt Dress - EcoLinen Gauze White

“Leather in the winter, linen in the summer. I didn’t make the rules, but I’m happy to abide by them, especially when the temperatures demand it of me. This linen button-down came to me unintentionally, but since finding a spot in my closet, it’s become one of my most crucial, most reached-for pieces, like, ever. As a swim coverup, it’s fabulously blasé, and when worn with a pair of vintage Levi’s or white linen pants, it serves chic, Georgia O’Keeffe realness. May though September, this staple is non-negotiable.” –Laura Reilly
