3 Products That’ll Keep You Fresh in the Summer Heat

These beauty savers are small enough to stash in your purse, gym bag, or to keep in your desk drawer. Stay fresh—not sweaty—through the rest of the summer.

1. Supergoop’s Defense Refresh Setting Mist

The three-in-one product was made for summer: It sets makeup, controls shine, and, with broad-spectrum SPF 50, offers extra sun protection. Mist your face before a working lunch on a restaurant patio. $12 (small) or $28 (large) at Sephora.

2. Boscia Clear Complexion Blotting Linens

Put the powder away until fall—these sheets remove excess oil and sweat without the heaviness of extra makeup. $10 at Sephora.

3. Drybar Detox Dry Shampoo

Re-volumize hair and soak up grease by spraying this at the roots, letting it absorb for one minute, then lightly massaging it in. $13 (small) or $28 (large) at Drybar.
