Put puffy eyes on ice (5 minutes)

Quench parched lips (5 seconds)

Swap out your regular lip balm for one with peppermint extract. It will cool on contact and protect your lips from the sweltering heat (plus give you some subtle sheen!) (Try Burt's Bees Lip Balm, $3;

Refresh on the go (15 seconds)

Grab a hydrating mist with cucumber or aloe. It'll instantly calm overheated, stressed out skin for a clean and dewy look. (Try Yes to Cucumbers Soothing Cooling Hydrating Mist, $11;

Try a frosty facial (10 minutes)

Apply a pore cleansing mask for a tingly 'this is working' sensation to feel instantly cool and refreshed. Bonus: The willow bark extract and tea tree oil will dry dirt and oil from your pores, so you'll cultivate clearer skin to boot. (Try Peter Thomas Roth Marine Algae Intense Hydrating Mask, $52;
