Cool Indian Summer Beauty 2017.

By Laura Medina

With humid-fueled hurricanes to the East and the South to raging wildfires in the West Coast, it's still Summer, y'all.

Here are some cooling beauty products to soothe burning skin.  If it weren't for technology, we wouldn't have this state-of-the art, all-natural products.  Healthy ingredients in practical high-tech package and delivery. 

Aforementioned Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Radiance Lotion,, is cool enough to be a refreshing tall drink of a face lotion.  Lightweight for the skin to drink up quickly, leaving a cooling sensation.

The Super 7 Complex is a hydrating and radiance-boosting blend* of 7 super-charged ingredients that promote a youthful-looking complexion:
1. Lotus flower extract, sourced from Laos, defends against wrinkle-causing free radicals*
2. Blue-green algae helps to visibly minimize early signs of aging*
3. Hibiscus fruit extract boosts hydration*
4. Fig fruit extract helps to preserve ideal moisture levels*
5. Vitamin C is known for its antioxidant and protective properties*
6. Vitamin E helps soften the skin*
7. Vegetable glycerol attracts water and seals in moisture
Star fruit extract is proven to protect the skin from free radical damage, improving elasticity and reducing early signs of aging

Here are other "Tall Drinks" of skincare.

If it's good enough to be the makeup bar inside Nike Air Lounge at BeautyCon,, innovative Milk Makeup's Cooling Water stick by cutting-edge, fashion-forward Milk Studio, is a new type of coolant and moisturizer.

Not old-fashion cream nor standard lotion, this unlikely gel of a stick is a portable hard gel of a stick that you simply swipe on anywhere for cool, fresh from the heat.

Unlike most moisturizers, there are no oil or grease as moisture carriers.

Milk Makeup's Cooling Water gel stick is for you oil-phobes, this sticky complexion scribe included.  This oil and grease and fat-free moisturizer uses this slickable gel stick composed of:

Caffeine: Acts as an anti-inflammatory known for de-puffing.
-Sea Water: Acts as an anti-inflammatory; soothes.
-Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice: Soothes and contains anti-inflammatory properties.
-Kappaphycus Alvarezii Extract: Hydrates...

Uses Aloe Vera, Sea Water, and Kappaphycus Alvarezii to moisturize and hydrate sans oil or fat as carrier.  They're all encapsulated into a gel stick for easy applying.

Slicked all over, leaving a rosy cheek hydrated appearance of ah, relief.

It's a tall drink of water in a gel stick.

For those who want their carrier to be more traditional but still high-tech and all-natural, Youth to the People delivers.

Third generation beauty cousins, inspired by farmers' markets, they took their family beauty industry knowledge and experience and distilled all the good antioxidants and vitamins out of vegetables-vegetables most people wouldn't eat-and fruits-some people wouldn't eat-then extract all the minerals and nutrients in lotions, washes, and lightweight cream as their Age Prevention Superfood Cream.

It says on the jar, extracted from kale, green tea, and moisture-attracting, oil-free hyaluronic acid.

Antioxidant powerhouse loaded with high levels of phytonutrients, Vitamins A, C, E and K. Kale goes miles in keeping your skin looking fresh.

Helps defend against environmental stresses. Full of antioxidants that keep your skin healthy and protect against sun damage.

Packed with antioxidants and rich with polyphenols that work tirelessly to keep you youthful.  

Crosslinked Hyaluronic Acid: Deeply moisturizes and improves skin elasticity by holding up to 5,000 times its weight in water.   

Traditionally whipped and creamy out of the jar, the skin soaks it into a matte, soft, suede-like complexion.  Soft oil-free.

The cooling effect has moved onto cosmetics.

Too Faced infused their new Peaches & Cream collection with peach and cream essences into their new line.

For a more optical blur or soft-focus, their Primed & Peachy Cooling Matte Skin Perfecting Primer is cool to the touch and skin while blurring flaws.

What's even cooler about Too Faced's new technology is that cool-to-the-touch cream texture that cools down even further once dabbed and flushed on the cheeks, cooling into a powder, matte blush.

With it's cream-like texture out of the compact, it makes for easier dabbing for a flush blush.  Once applied, it dries into a powder blush that doesn't clog already sweaty skin and pores.

With flesh-toned, peachy blushes, Too Faced's Melting Powder Blushes from Peaches and Cream Collections can double as cream-to-powder eyeshadows into soft, romantic, yet sultry twilight shades, known as "Golden Hour" where the sun set glows in romantic rose, gold, and...peach.  With peach and cream essences infused in the Peaches and Cream collection, it gives it an healthy edge.

Millennial technology for Gen-Xers' age-defying.
