ARE YOU ALREADY SICK OF THE HEAT?

Growing up in the very hot, muggy + humid city of Houston, Tx– I know all about how uncomfortable extreme heat can be and how it puts a damper on our beauty routine! Here’s a few tips I’ve found to stay comfy + feeling clean during this time of year:

1. Keep the chaffing under control with a cornstarch based powder: GOLD BOND Medicated Powder and/or JOHNSON’S Cornstarch w/ Aloe + Vit E.  Apply a light dusting of the powder on inner thighs, under arms and under the edges of your bra.

2. Cooling spray for overheated or sunburned skin. Make with distilled water, a few drops of tangerine essential oil, aloe juice and a few drops of vit E oil. Keep in a spray bottle in the fridge.

3. Best workout gear to keep the outdoor fitness junkie’s cool + comfortable during the summer heat: ATHLETA’S “hot yoga” line of workout gear is designed with breathable fabrics for Bikram yoga- they style of yoga where the heater is cranked up for an added benefit to the body.  Perfect for staying comfy outdoors during summer too.

4. Many of us are in a swimsuit most of the summer. The pool chemicals plus a tight elastic band around the groin will create a rash, razor bumps and an all around uncomfortable feeling in your bikini.  Reduce razor burn and bumps with Bikini Zone (with lidocaine, salicylic acid, and aloe) to stay comfy in your bikini all summer long.

5. Tiger Balm or Icey Hot for staying comfy + cool in the heat.  Apply a dab or spritz on the inside of the wrists, back of neck and back of knees.   The menthol + eucalyptus has a lasting cooling effect.

6. Keep your feet comfy in sandals during the heat of summer by wearing sandals without a rubber insole.  Plastic or rubber flip flops add to the heat problem by making your feet sweat more.

7. Inbetween shampoos, use a dry shampoo to keep your hair smelling great and the extra sweat +oil under control.  I like TreSemme FreshStart and the one by John Freida. They’re both great and easy to find at most drugstores, target or walmart.

8.  My fave antiperspirant is Secret’s Outlast Clear Geland for women who prefer a natural brand, “Tom’s” is great too.

9. During summer switch from your usual alcohol-based perfume to an essential oil.  Our body chemistry changes during summer due to the heat so I HIGHLY recommend checking out my sister’s line of body oils called Corpus Dei .   She can even customize a personalized scent that works with your body chemistry.  Made with organic essential oils.

10. Stay hydrated! Drink more water than normal. I love to add cucumber and lemon slices for added nutrients.
