    Sarah Rohoman/BuzzFeed

    "The towel definitely isn't icy cold — it's more of a cool sensation that'll give you a little shiver if you place it on the back of your neck. I've been tying it around my head (yes, I look silly, but it's worth it), sticking it down my cleavage, and just wrapping it around my neck or wrist when I'm out in the sun. It makes me feel so much better while I wait for autumn to arrive." —Sarah Rohoman

    16. An ice roller that’ll quickly cool your face down after your workout, or even just during a particularly hot day. Just put the green roller part in the fridge or freezer for ten minutes and then roll over your face for some instant relief.

    Alice Prendergast/BuzzFeed

    "I'm obsessed with my ice roller. Like, I have recommended this to so many people I have lost count. It's great for cooling down when it feels like a sauna outside, it helps wake me up in the morning, and it saves me when I have a migraine. Unlike jade and quartz rollers, the roll-y part is made of gel, so when you pop it in the freezer it actually gets cold and stays cold for a loooooong time. It's also a lot larger than those doodads, so you can cover larger parts of your body, like your thighs and stomach (not just your under-eye area). TL;DR: Everybody needs to buy one of these immediately." —Alice Prendergast
