I know you think this is going to be a lecture about sunscreen but it’s not. (Okay, maybe just a tiny one at the end.)
It’s about the products I call on in summer, year after year, to get me through the party season/end of work rush/hot and humid weather/lazy holiday period.
Shall we begin?
Side note: The women who are owning summer. Post continues below.
Face mist in the fridge.
Violins, please… I don't have air-conditioning.
But perhaps the reason I haven't saved up for it yet is that a face mist kept in the fridge door is a pretty decent alternative!
A cold spritz just feels so nice on the face and chest after a hot day at the beach, or a hot day watching Netflix.
They call it the silly season because sometimes we have a few wines and the next day our skin is thirsty from the dehydration and so our makeup looks dry and silly.
Face oil is your friend on these mornings. Massage a few drops into the skin - really push it in there - and let it absorb for a few minutes before applying your makeup.
You’ll be back to your dewy, not-hungover-looking self in no time.
I love to look luminous but sometimes the humidity forgets its manners and so I go from looking glowy to oily and I don't appreciate that.
It only gets bad on my forehead, nose and chin, so I whip a small pack of blotting papers from my bag, tap-tap-tap one on those areas and problem solved.
