If there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s hot outside. It’s really hot outside. ‘Tis the season for lower-back sweat, and whenever August rolls around, it’s as if we’ve all forgotten what last summer was like. And we contemplate whether it has ever been this hot? Spoiler alert: yes, it has. Heat and humidity like this tend to leave us feeling gross, sweaty, tired, and lethargic. It can be hard to do even the simplest things when you just can’t get over that heat-induced discomfort.
Besides the heat, wearing your mask outside can definitely increase levels of sweat, oil and discomfort. If you’re not applying sunscreen regularly (we’re not mad, but you should be doing so), sunburns can leave you with that lingering physical heat, even when you’re inside an air-conditioned room. And if you’re not drinking enough water, dehydration can make matters worse.
We all know the classic ways to combat these issues: break out an ice pack. Hang in the shade. Drink ice water. Take a cold shower. These are all well and good, but these options can sometimes be unfavorable or just downright boring. Plus, 3+ showers per day can get expensive. But using skincare products that help cool and refresh will allow you to experience a sense of reprieve while also moisturizing, hydrating, and re-energizing both your skin and yourself.
Each Huron product offers its own unique cooling experience. Let’s start with the Body Wash. The cooling properties of the Body Wash, as well as the rest of the Huron products, are not just attributed to ingredients or scent. It’s an all-encompassing experience. Yes, a cold shower shock can feel nice and wake you up after too much time in the sun and heat. But if that’s not something you necessarily enjoy (and we don’t blame you), our Body Wash will leave you feeling refreshed, rejuvenated (mentally and physically) and cooler (temperature-wise, at least). The added menthol also helps to energize and invigorate. Your skin will not only feel clean, but soothed and comfortable.
The anti-fatigue Eye Stick acts as a two-in-one. The serum itself physically cools, soothes and refreshes the undereye area, while the stainless-steel rollerball remains tangibly cold providing a chilling microcirculation massage. Soothing oat and sea algae help to calm and reduce puffiness, while refreshing aloe and sodium hyaluronate help you look fresh and well-rested.
The daily Face Wash is particularly great for summer months because it helps purify, hydrate and refresh skin. If your face is feeling a little burnt or tight from the sun, the cooling aloe, cactus extract and glycerin is intended to alleviate that discomfort and soothe your skin.
To keep it feeling really fresh and healthy-looking, the Face Lotion is the perfect follow-up. Spending too much (or at this point, any) time in the sun and severe heat can lead to dehydration, which has a visible effect on our skin. Without enough moisture and hydration, skin can be dry, itchy, and appear dull. And contrary to what many think, the more dehydrated your skin, the more it purges oil to keep skin protected. Our Face Lotion is a cool, lightweight gel-cream that helps to rehydrate and refresh all skin types, and calm any irritation from sun exposure, shaving redness or dehydration.
So, wherever you may be this summer, if you’re looking for a way to beat the heat, we highly recommend any of these four products. Just remember to drink plenty of water and apply sunscreen daily, too. You’ll be cool in no time. And you know what’s cooler than being cool? That’s right. Ice cold. (Sorry.)
