Are you currently participating in hot girl summer?
No, like are you actually and literally a hot girl this summer?
Right now in Iowa, where the humidity is blatantly offensive, I’m all about anything that keeps me cool, calm and collected.
When you’re hot and bothered, you want cooled down NOW. These are my favorite Amazon buys for cool girls during a hot summer.
If you also suffer from the made up condition I have, HLS, otherwise known as Hot Leg Syndrome, this is for you. I often wake up with no covers on during the night, or worse, drenched in sweat.
I realized that cushy, squishy memory foam was just holding all my body heat in and broasting me like a Costco rotisserie chicken.
Full stop, the Purple mattress cured my hot sleep probs. I fully believe it’s because of the open air grid structure. Why wouldn’t it? It has 1,400+ ventilation chambers for airflow.
No question; this mattress is very expensive. We have the Hybrid 3. But I’ve never regretted this purchase once.
BEAUTY BENEFITS: Your skin repairs itself while you sleep, especially between the hours of 9pm and 12am when cell mitosis is at it’s peak. The value of proper sleep cannot be overstated.
I want you to be as cool as the other side of the pillow and with a satin pillowcase, you can be. Not only does this feel cool and stay cool, but satin is beneficial for your hair and skin too!
BEAUTY BENEFITS: The satin texture reduces friction, thus hair breakage and it won’t absorb your skincare products the way cotton can. I prefer satin to silk because we’re cruelty free kids here.
I first used these during physical therapy for tendonitis in my wrist. Ice massage has been a game changer for me after a big wedding party so of course this ice cup massager made it into my summer Amazon buys.
BEAUTY BENEFITS: Ice massage can be performed on the face too. You’ll need to move quickly because as you can imagine, it feels really cold, but ice boosts circulation and reduces swelling.
I cry a lot, and when I cry, my eyes really swell. I love the cooling sensation of these globes under my eyes and also for soothing my severe TMJ. I roll these at the jaw joint and it really feels soothing.
BEAUTY BENEFITS: Bid adieu to under eye bags in a relaxing way. Remember: keep them in the fridge, but not the freezer.
If you want your makeup to last, setting spray is a non-negotiable. Urban Decay has been a tried and true for years because it just works. Plus, this just feels lovely and refreshing.
BEAUTY BENEFITS: When you need to take things up a notch for the summer, Chill’s temperature control technology is where it’s at. This will actually keep your face cooler, reducing makeup melting.
I keep these in my freelance kit for fanning clients dry after applying setting spray. Let’s bring back hand fans.
BEAUTY BENEFITS: Keeping your body temperature cool during hot weather will help makeup to last longer. A hand fan is also great for drying lash glue or nail polish.
