Cruel, Cruel Summer: Best Products to Beat the Heat
Summer has finally arrived in Boston. In full blast. The blast of a hot hair dryer in a steamy bathroom.
Let’s be clear: I am not complaining. The days of scraping feet of snow off of my car are around the corner and I will bask in the hot, steamy, human-mouth-like Boston weather.
There are a few, key products that are really helping me out these days:
Beautisol Self Tanner. It is far too hot to actually tan, nevermind the whole skin cancer thing. I get my beachy glow from Beautisol.
This is my favorite self tanner because it:
- Comes equipped with (almost) dummy-proof, online instructional videos
- Leaves my skin golden tan, and not the slightest bit oompa loompa organge
- Doesn’t have that strange and mysterious odor suffered by most self tanners
Josie Maran Bohemian Waves Argan Hair Mist. I love the concept of beachy/wavy hair in the summertime, but most salt sprays make my hair feel like ramen noodles. I love this spray because it defines my curls while leaving them soft.
Dr. Hauschka Facial Toner. By the end of the day, I feel like my skin is covered with a film of sweat, makeup, and sidewalk. A few spritzes of this toner makes me feel cool, clean(er), and refreshed – particularly if I need to reapply makeup to head straight out for the night.
What are your summer products that you can’t live without?
