Hot Hot Heat: Stay Cool With These 5 Green Beauty Treats
As the mercury rises, so does the humidex. Though the perfect summer temperature is 30+ for some and a cool 20 with a breeze for others, we can all agree that looking swell when it's sweltering is tricky at best. Here's what to do when skin feels more gooey than dewy and frizz is making you frazzled.
1/ La Bella Figura Bohemia Verde Hair Elixir is a frizz-defying dream for locks. Loaded with natural oils such as argan, avocado, camellia, olive and coconut, this lightweight oil smooths and defines even the finest hair without adding weight. Plus, it smells pretty too.
2/ One Love Organics Pretty Pores Complexion Toning Mist. The problem with hot hot heat and humidity is that it can wreak havoc on the complexion. Sweating mixed with oil, daily grime, and going in-and-out of air conditioning can make skin wonder what is up. Tone and refresh with this limited edition summer toner for all skin types featuring pure grapefruit water. Keep it handy and mist throughout the day.
3/ Suntegrity Natural Tinted Moisturizing Face Sunscreen comes in 5 shades, and provides the coverage of tinted-moisturizer and SPF 30 protection. Even skin tone and protect against the harmful UV rays with an all-natural blend of ingredients. This sunscreen has been featured as a best sunscreen by the Environmental Working Group two years in a row.
4/ Studio 78 Let's Get Married Liquid Lipstick in Rose Wedding or Coral Wedding. Who wants to wear a face-full of foundation and all the rest when it's hitting 35 degrees outside? Take a minimalist approach and apply a little of this liquid stain to fingertips blending into cheeks and lips for easy, pretty long-lasting colour.
5/ bkr Water Bottle. One of the most surefire ways to beat the heat and humidity is to hydrate. Tote around a pretty and sustainable bkr bottle to sip from during the day to replace water lost from perspiring and/or sitting in the dry air-conditioning. For an extra treat, make a mint iced tea the night before: 1 teabag mint iced tea in your bkr bottle topped up with cold water and kept in the fridge. Before leaving in the morning, toss the tea bag and top bkr bottle with ice.
Now that you've got your arsenal of go-to's, get out there and enjoy the rest of the hot hot summer!
