Cooling + Refreshing Beauty Products You'll Need This Summer

It's getting hot and about time to. Humid days can play havoc with your beauty regime - taking you from greasy to creasy in minutes. As the thermometer starts rising; it's time to find ways to stay cool, refreshed and hydrated.

I've discovered a whole heap of products to help get you through the warmer months. In the summer go for products which contain soothing ingredients such as aloe and cucumber. Gel based products are nice and light-weight, stay away from heavy creams. I also like to keep these beauty bits in the fridge for extra boost of coolness!

Burts Bees Fabulously Fresh Peppermint and Rosemary Body Wash*
A cool shower combined with a rejuvenating body wash is a great way to cool down after a hot day. This minty cleansing wash leaves skin feeling smoothed and refreshed; an energising boost for body, mind and spirit.
Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist*
Face mists are my new favourite skincare item. This is great for soothing sun-sizzled skin. The refreshing spray leaves skin ready for the next step in your skincare routine.
Revlon Parfumerie Surf Spray
Part of the new Parfumerie range this nail polish mimics the cool shades of the sea and also has a surf spray scent.
Dr Organic Aloe Vera Body Butter
If you're suffering from sun burn reach for an aloe vera based moisturiser. This luxurious cream contains Shea Butter, sunflower oil and vitamin e.
Murine Hayfever Eye Drops*
With the British summer comes the dreaded hayfever season. I suffer really badly from it so anything to help ease symptoms i'm going to try! These drops help relieve irritation and redness. Two drops in each eye and symptoms are gone within a few minutes, although it does sting slightly at first.
Aveda Foot Relief
Don't forget about your tootsies! This herbal formula gentle exfoliates and revitalizes tired and stressed feet. The salicylic and lactic acids smooth tough skin. I like to smoother my feet in this before bed, so good after a long day on your feet.
Shu Uemura Depsea Water Lavender Mist
And my love for face mists continue. This is more of a refreshing spray than a toning spray like the Jurlique one mentioned above. This in the fridge = perfection.
Burts Bees Peppermint Lip Balm*
As you know, I'm a lip balm hoarder. I use lip balm all year round but my lips need extra attention in the summer as the sun can dry them out. This stick of minty goodness feels really refreshing and does a great job of hydrating lips.
No7  Beautiful Skin Hydration Mask
Skin tends to get dry from all the sun so it's important to keep it re-hydrated. After cleansing I apply a generous amount of this all over my face. This thick, creamy mask leaves skin super soft and smooth.

What are your must have products in the summer?
