Products to Keep You Cool During the Heatwave

This has been one crazy hot summer so far. Stepping outside is like opening the door to a pizza oven (without the mouth-watering smell). Since none of us have time to take a cold shower every hour, these five cooling beauty products will provide immediate relief from the heat. So don't sweat it-stash these under $15-picks in your fridge for an extra-cool effect, and for goodness sake sit closer to the fan/air conditioner!
