Cos it’s getting hot in here.

With global warming, this summer seems to be one of the hottest in history. In January, Australia recorded its hottest summer and more recently, temperatures soared past the 50 degree C mark in India earlier this month. While the situation isn’t as extreme here in Singapore, the heat has been pretty unrelenting despite the scattered thunderstorms in recent weeks.

If you find dark spots appearing on your face, or you feel that your skin looks a bit duller or that it feels inflamed  despite piling on the sunscreen and using your regular skincare routine, you may not be imagining things. Turns out, heat stimulates melanin production, which leads to hyperpigmentation, according to skincare research done by Korean beauty brand Laneige. Plus, if your skin is sensitive, you may even get rashes or skin inflammation that cause itchiness.

To avoid any of the above, it’s essential to bring the temperature down by cooling your skin. One way to do this is to keep a facial mist handy. These nifty skincare products help bring down temperature immediately while refreshing your senses. And while they act as a quick fix to the problem, for longer-lasting results you would need to opt for skincare products that pack a heavier punch in the cooling and hydration department. Here are six cooling skincare products to try.
