Oh god – this heat and humidity are killing me! I’m simply NOT built for it – my skin feels prickly and hot and I feel faint and slightly nauseous all the time – I know summer is traditionally thought of as the nicest time of the year, but for me and probably for lots of other pale peeps – we need a little help!
Without doubt the most important weapon in my fight against the heat! I actually wear facial sunscreen all year round in my moisturiser, but as soon as I see a glimmer of light breaking through the grey clouds which traditionally cover the UK for the majority of the year, I lavish my whole body with sunscreen. Prevention is better than cure!
2. WATER LOT OF HYDRATION!
One of my other favourite things at the moment is a nice refreshing facial spray – my current fave is the Body Shops vitamin C face spray, purely because the citrussy scent seems to make it so much more refreshing and zingy… Not only is it lovely to spritz on for a quick cool at anytime of the day, but I also discovered that that it is great to spray over the bed before climbing in to stop your temp rocketing… try it! Obviously, other facial sprays are out there – evian do a cheap one, MAC make fix+ etc etc…
I also love rolling the Garnier Nutritionist eye roll on onder my eyes when I feel particularly puffy and swollen with the heat –
I started trying this out a couple of weeks ago and as the heat has increased, I have got more and more addicted to it – we recieved one in our Garnier Goody Bags the other day too, so I have a supply sorted for the next couple of months at least! Phew!
OTHER TIPS –
I was advised on twitter today by MitzyG that putting your knickers in the freezer is great way to start the day!
Eating mint – this is a natural way to keep your body cool.
Avoid man-made fibres and wear a lot of cotton!
Anyone got any other ideas? All tips greatfully recieved!!!
