Given that I live in sunny Los Angeles, I experience a lot of warm weather throughout the year, but during the summer I do what I can to stay comfortable during the hot weather. One of my favorite things to do is to refrigerate after-sun gels and Aloe Vera Gel because they can be used whenever you want a refreshing cool-down. Not only do they hydrate the skin, but they are soothing, calming and exhilarating. Here are a couple of my favorites:

Sun Bum Cool Down Hydrating After Sun Gel ($9.99 for 8 oz. from Sun Bum, Ulta, Walgreens, Swell and Dermstore): while conceived to soothe sunburned skin, is also one of my favorite go-to light moisturizing gels to use for a dose of refreshing hydration during the hot summer months.

According to Sun Bum,

Sun Bum Cool Down Hydrating After Sun Gel soothes and alleviates pain after sun exposure. Tea tree oil reduces inflammation and irritation while aloe vera restores moisture to prevent skin from peeling. Refrigerate gel for an instant cooling effect when applied.

  • Provides fast relief from sunburn pain
  • Contains soothing and cooling Aloe

Mario Badescu After Sun Cooling Gel ($14.00 for 6 oz. from Mario Badescu and Amazon): This is a delightful rose scented hydrating gel that drenches the skin with moisture. This is a non-greasy and fast absorbing gel that can be used any time that you want to cool down the skin, and I always keep a bottle in my refrigerator for a little refreshing pick-me-up. Toss a bottle in your cooler for your next picnic or trip to the beach– you'll be glad that you did!

According to Mario Badescu,

Enriched with Aloe to soothe skin and reduce the sting and discomfort of a sun burn. This non-greasy, lightweight gel cools immediately upon contact.
