    18 Beauty Products That'll Basically Save Your Summer

    Don't sweat it.

    1. A duo of detangling Wet Brushes so you have one to use after taking a dip and one for non-swimming things.

    2. A cotton swab dipped in micellar water to help erase mascara globs that somehow already ended up under your eyes bc you're sweating and haven't even left the house yet.

    3. This seriously weightless -- no, but really -- hydrating keratin spray will calm your humid frizzies without making your hair and hands feel all greasy.

    4. An argan oil hair mask to treat yo' tresses after dealing with chlorine, humidity, and lots of other warm-weather probs.

    5. An invisible hair tie for when you need to put some airy space between your sweaty neck and flawless blowout without suffering creases.

    6. Some gold firming cream you can use in place of a BB cream that's so luminous passersby will need night.

    7. A stick of anti-chafe balm so you won't have to walk around like a cowboy in an old Western movie to avoid uncomfortable inner-thigh friction.

    8. And for when you do get some irritation from chub rub, uncomfortable shoes, or too-tight bra straps you can call on your old friend, hydrocortisone cream.

    9. Dry shampoo paste to deliver some major texture while refreshing your second-day (or third- or fourth-, no judgments here) hair.

    10. Or some killer *spray* dry shampoo that, lbh, doesn't make your roots weirdly white and is the next best (affordable) thing to actually paying for a blowout.

    11. Some cheap, reliable smoothing milk to keep your tresses a step ahead of humidity.

    12. An incredibly lightweight SPF 35 sunscreen that goes on invisible so you don't have to worry about the weird waiting period to avoid a ghoulish white look.

    13. A dusting of super-effective setting powder may be the answer to your go-to foundation sweating off -- rather than an endless parade of trying and returning "mattifying" foundations for summer.

    14. And some meme-famous rosewater spray will *really* keep you looking fresh on top of setting spray.

    15. A cooling spritz of an Evian spray small enough to fit in a tiny purse will be enough to help you fight the urge to wipe your brow with your forearm and disturb your picture-perfect brows.

    16. An arsenal of blotting papers to annihilate your shiny spots.

    17. A holy grail lip balm with SPF 30 that stays put long enough for you to run down the beach in slow motion for a bit.

    18. And some slightly splurgey Skyn eye pads that'll feel like a blast of arctic air to your puffy under eye area...but they're super lazy-friendly.

    After all, you have better things to do with your summer free time, like meeting Gorbachev at Tunnel.
