#1 Use a face mist
When skin is red and flushed from the heat, the best way to cool it down is with a refreshing spritz of face mist. The spray mechanism is key here – the finer the mist, the better it works at cooling skin down as it evaporates faster.
TRY: Biotherm Aquasource Serum in Mist, $39.
#2 Powder up
Feeling hot and sticky after being out? Bring a small bottle of baby powder with you to the bathroom and powder up (be careful if you’re wearing black!) to get rid of excess moisture on your skin so that you can feel and smell fresh.
#3 No more odour
If powder is not an option for you, keep a small spray bottle of deodorant in the office. Spritz on to avoid embarrassing odours that could be lingering even after your skin has cooled down.
TRY: Nivea Extra White Serum Spray, $10.90.
#4 Bag it up
Frozen tea bags are known for treating beauty emergencies like puffy eyes and pimples, but they’re also great for cooling down sunburns and also soothing itchy skin, especially on eczema-prone areas. Don’t toss the tea bags which you have used for your morning tea, keep them in the fridge and use them after lunch.
