‘Tis the season to be…sweaty. The summer months are here and although there’s nothing quite like beach and pool days, backyard BBQs, fireworks, and sun until 9:00pm, it’s also easy to be super uncomfortable. Between sand, sweat, humidity, sun, and chlorine, the summer can do a real number on your body. And clothes. And makeup. Basically, there’s a whole new collection of personal care items that we have to load up on, ready to nip those “embarrassing” summer problems in the bud.

Of course, there’s nothing to really be embarrassed about. We’re all fighting sweat, odor, irritation, and more. But, let’s face it: no one really wants to show up drenched in sweat or feeling uncomfortable. Below are some of our favorite personal care items for the hot months to help you keep your cool!

Instant Cooling Towel, 12pk

set of 14 cooling towels

These babies are going to save your summer. All you have to do is soak it in water, wring it out, snap it, and the moisture form the towel draws sweat away from your skin. Drape it on your neck and cool off almost immediately! Kids and pets can use it, too.

This is wild. Chill the CülCan in the fridge for 2 hours or the freezer/ice water for around an hour and a half. It'll stay cold for 30-60 minutes and you can hold it against the palms of your hands, the back of your neck, your chest, anywhere you're overheated. It's especially great for high humidity.

Women's Sweat Guard Undershirt


If you struggle with sweat stains (and who among us doesn't?), but prefer not to delve into clinical antiperspirants, find they don't work as well for you, or just want an extra layer of protection, these undershirts are an option. They're a minimal style so they don't add a lot of bulk, they're soft, and they're also sweat-wicking (which makes total sense).

Truly Dragon Milk Anti-Blemish Body Lotion

bottle of purple lotion

It doesn't matter how old you are; body blemishes are a fact of life. Totally normal, but not necessarily welcome during the summer months when tank tops and swimsuits are the norm. This body lotion from Truly smooths your skin and work to unclog pores and refine texture with glycolic and lactic acid. Just make absolutely sure you don't skip the sunscreen!

Crave Naturals Glide Thru Detangling Brush

Crave Naturals

There you are, straight out of the pool or ocean, drying off, and realizing your hair is a tangled knot. Of course, we're not particularly concerned about our blow-out if we're getting in the water, but snags and knots in our hair can cause major damage if we try to deal with it later. The Crave Naturals Glide Thru Detangling Brush lets you gently loosen up even the most tangled hair with bristled that unravel and separate your locks from side-to-side instead of up and down.

Summer's Eve Spa Daily Intimate Skin Serum

Summer's Eve

Chlorine, sand, and sweat can do a number on delicate skin (ever had sand in your swimsuit? We don't recommend.). This serum is specifically designed to hydrate, smooth, and soften anytime, including after shaving!

Lume Whole Body Deodorant

There's definitely a divide when it comes to aluminum-free deodorant, but we think Lume can convert for even the strongest sweaty situations. We've tested it on our Texas-based shopping editor (and her 13 year old son) and Lume keeps coming out on top. Combine the body wash with either the stick or cream whole body deodorant and try throwing the wipes in your bag. You can even layer it over your favorite regular deodorant, too.

One/Size On 'Til Dawn Waterproof Setting Spray

This is like hairspray for your face, but without the stickiness. Patrick Starr's On 'Til Dawn Setting Spray is waterproof, rub-proof, transfer-proof, mattifying, and lasts up to 16 hours! It's gone viral for a reason.

Fruit of the Loom Breathable Micro Mesh

set of 6 underwear for women
Fruit of the Loom

Everyone knows the pain of summer undies, and these micro mesh underwear are lightweight and breathable, plus they're smooth and tagless. They're also moisture-wicking so you'll be comfortable all season long.

biotène Dry Mouth Management

three dry mouth rinses

The heat has us seriously mouth-breathing, and that leads to dry-as-the-desert mouth. The biotène management system keeps you feeling fresh and soothes and protects your mouth from other oral issues, too.

Megababe Sweat Absorbing Bust Dust


Sweat isn't limited to your underarms or forehead, is it? Megababe's Bust Dust is a sweat-absorbing body powder keeps your skin, bra, and clothes dry and protects against rashes and irritation.

Gold Bond Friction Defense Stick

Gold Bond

Friction is one of the fastest way to ruin a summer. There are a lot of anti-chafing sticks out there, but Gold Bond's has some of the best reviews around. It prevents irritation and soothes skin so you can keep going (without the burn).

Back & Butt Acne Treatment Cream

tube of back and butt cleanser

We're showing a lot of skin this season (though we know 'a lot' is relative), so keeping booty breakouts under control for swimsuit flaunting is a must. This body cream fights cystic acne and scarring with tea tree oil and azelaic acid. Keep your sunscreen handy when you're using any sort of acne treatment (although you're doing that, anyway, right?).
