To be honest, I really have no idea how people survived before air conditioning. On hot days when even lounging on the beach takes effort, hanging in the cool indoors sounds magnificent to me. But come on, we have places to go and people to see! Luckily, the beauty gods have created lifesavers to help us beat the heat and humidity.
Humidity causes dry hair to absorb water vapor from the air, causing curly hair to frizz and fine hair to go limp. Heat styling also causes dryness to hair and makes the reaction to humidity worse, so use Amika Obliphica Hair Treatment to prevent frizz and protect hair from harsh temps.
Make Dr.Dennis Gross your right hand man when the sun is beating down. His Powerful Sun Protection SPF 30 Towelettes are super-portable and great to carry around with you wherever you go. Even just a few minutes of exposure can do damage, so it’s always a good idea to practice safe sun.
And lastly, you can’t let the weather interrupt your makeup regimine. Use NARS Makeup Primer with SPF 20 directly before applying your makeup to protect your face and allow your makeup to last longer. As an added bonus, it is moisturizing so it helps things glide on smoothly.
