It's still hot out. Which means we're all looking for ways to cool off. Sure, swimming is an option. Or sitting in front of an air conditioner all day (and night) long. But there's another, much easier way to deal with the heat. We're talking about cooling face masks.

What are cooling face masks?

Cooling face masks are designed to cool skin on contact. Look for the term cryo on the label to ensure you're getting a chilly treatment. Most work in only 10 minutes and some don't even require spending time in the freezer.

What skin conditions do the masks treat?

They tackle a variety of skin problems. Some lift and tighten. Others shrink pores and banish puffiness. They're also an awesome source of hydration, which is why a few are recommended for use after dermatological procedures.

Are they expensive?

Prices can vary. There's a moisturizing one for only $15. You may have to shell out as much as $170. It all depends on what your complexion goals are.

Now that you know all about cooling face masks, it's time to pick one. Keep reading to see which treatments are worth giving a go.
