With summer 2021 coming in hot (literally, thanks to a heatwave), the seasonal beauty struggles have arrived, too. Sweaty hair? Check. Oily skin? Check. Melting eye makeup? Check, check, and check.

Luckily, beauty brands understood the assignment because July's new launches include products to help you beat the heat — at least when it comes your hair, makeup, and skincare routines.

Summer breakouts? Cocokind has a gentle exfoliating serum for acne-prone skin. Dark hair getting brassy from the sun and pool water? Eva NYC's shampoo and conditioner will refresh your color. Love a full-coverage foundation year-round? RCMA's liquid foundation doesn't get cakey with sweat.

And that's just a sampling of all of the exciting new products launching this month. Keep scrolling for 17 new haircare, makeup, and skincare buys worth trying in July.
