Unfortunately, you can’t take your desk fan with you everywhere this summer. And we certainly can’t hibernate in air-conditioned comfort.

But fear not! I’ve found 5 summer must-haves to help you stay cool – and look fresh – while you’re out in the summer heat.

Here are our 5 summer must haves

Instant Cool with Evian Mineral Water Spray

I discovered this spray ($10) while waiting in line at ulta beauty, and it has been a LIFESAVE. Spray directly on your face or in front of yourself, walking through a refreshing mist.

Wearing a sundress or some shorts can help you stay cool in the clothing department, but what happens when that happens coolness turns to red thighs and friction?

You know how it is in the summer, especially since there is no additional barrier of fabric between our thighs, we can sometimes experience rodents. No problems Zone Naturals are here to help us!

Just slide it on and you’re good to go! Say goodbye to chub rub!

Keep it fresh with Pacifica towels

Stay cool this summer with these summer must haves

Have you ever raised your arm and you’re a little ripe? Honey, we’ve all been there. I have refreshing wipes and travel size deodorant in my bag.

These practical napkins from Pacifica let me quickly duck in and out of the bathroom and skip the whole thing “washing my armpits with a paper towel” nonsense. Who has time for that?

Create your own breeze with a hand fan

A few summers ago I went to Italy and saw women using smart fans in a cafe to keep cool. It had never actually occurred to me use a fan, but now I never travel without one.

For everyday use I like to use a simple and smart sandalwood fan, but my next purchase might be some more clever fans, like this one from Fancy Hand Fans.

Tame your oily skin with blotting sheets

Another must-have for your bag, blotter sheets get rid of that sweaty shine (excuse me, “sun-kissed glow“), that comes with summer. These sheets are great because you remove sweat without wiping off your make-up.

I love it NYX Cosmetics has 4 types of sheets (50 sheets for $6), depending on what you use them for. The tea tree sheets are my favorite when I wear makeup.


Aside from the fancy clothes we add to our closets and wardrobes, what’s a few of YOURS Summer must have?
