September is here...and so is the heat. Parts of the country are still facing record-breaking temperatures, but don’t worry: We found genius products to keep you cool as a cucumber.
No need to blast the AC: These smart finds ensure you won’t break a sweat — whether you’re out and about, working out or even asleep.
Keep scrolling for seven brilliant products to help you stay cool even on the warmest of days.
Developed by MIT scientists, the Embr Wave is a bracelet that precisely cools or warms the temperature-sensitive skin on your wrist. It can make you feel five degrees more comfortable within three minutes by recreating the chill of an ice cube (or, when it’s cold out, the comforting warmth of hands by the fire). Altering the temperature on that small patch of skin triggers a natural response that can improve your overall comfort, and help with stress management and sleep disturbances.
Pair Embr with your smartphone to customize different modes, set a thermal temperature goal and more.
Hot Flash Relief
Pause spray, formulated to relieve hot flashes, contains ingredients that instantly make you feel cooler without actually lowering your body temperature. Customers love how it makes their skin tingly and chilly in just seconds. It’s a great option for night sweats, after a workout or during heat waves.
Columbia’s Freezer Dress went viral this summer, and for good reason. It was designed for female anglers, though it’s certainly garnering praise beyond fishing enthusiasts. The sweat-activated cooling technology embedded right into the fabric lowers its temperature the moment moisture hits its surface, so it keeps you comfortable and cool. It’s also breathable while offering UPF 50 to protect skin from sunburns and long-term skin damage.
Bottom line: You won’t have to travel far to fish for compliments in this fun and functional dress.
Over 2,600 Amazon reviewers are going gaga over this wearable neckband fan. It has three modes, an adjustable silicone arm and a rainbow light for when you want to go on a fun nighttime jog. Long-haired friends, beware: A heavy-duty scrunchie should definitely be the next item on your shopping list — tying back your mane is critical for this one!
AC, Party of One
A personal air conditioner is a great option for keeping cool at a desk, under the covers or in a tent. Use it to get a chilly blast after a workout, too. Just plug it in, add water to the tank and instantly make that hot, dry air pleasantly cool.
Over 2,600 Amazon reviewers are raving about this cooling bamboo blanket, an Amazon’s Choice. Bamboo blankets dissipate heat effectively since they naturally ventilate to keep you cool and dry, plus the lightweight fabric feels like silk. The only caveat? You’ll need to air-dry the blanket to maintain its cooling properties.
Tired of constantly flipping your pillow to get to the cool side? The Moona pillow pad cools your pillow based on your ideal temperature profile. The bedside device continuously pumps water to the pillow pad to regulate the temperature and has three sensors to track the brightness of the room, humidity and temperature. With this data, it begins to learn your optimal sleep conditions over time and aims to replicate it so you get consistently good sleep.
