How To Beat Heat-Rage

As the temperature skyrockets, tempers too begin to sizzle. While there is no escaping the insufferable heat, you can keep your cool by turning down your internal agitation sensor with these tiny tweaks:

Salvage Your Style SNAFUs
The worst offenders are underboob and sideboob sweatage.  These two problem areas collect perspiration and bacteria leaving your summer frocks flooded with pools of stinky sweat.  Solve this summertime woe by minimizing skin on skin contact. A quick fix to eliminate sleevage and ill-fitting undergarments is Warner’s No Side Effects Front-Close Underwire Contour Bra.  This over-the-shoulder-boulder-holder keeps your tatas in place – read: pulled up, away from your ribcage – without overstuffing them in your t-shirt.  It’s especially comfortable because the front closure frees you from trying to contort yourself into your brassiere. Saving you a few extra calories, and a few more sweat-free moments.

Convinced You’ll Melt on the Pavement?
Then avoid the great out doors by booking beauty services at home. We cant get enough of Stylisted, a digital platform that allows you to book on-location hair styling and makeup appointments from a network of vetted beauty professionals.  We like it better than some of the other at-home glam options, because we can choose our own stylists based on their portfolio – not just a set menu of looks. Plus, you can work with your hair stylist or makeup artist to customize your look, and feel confident that you are getting a seasoned, talented professional because you can stalk their work and pick who you like best to come to you.

Distract Yourself Beautiful
Allow yourself to get caught up in thoughts other than obsessing about the heatwave.  Try a project like an at-home facial to distract yourself from boiling thoughts, while giving your skin a calming treatment.  Celebrity facialist Joanna Vargas has a recipe for an Aloe / Lime Facial Mist that will keep you cool and refreshed. Begin with 3 tablspoons of organic aloe, juice from ½ of a lime, ½ cup of water. Then mix all the ingredients into a bowl and add to a spray bottle and store in the refrigerator. Every time you have a negative though about the heat, just spritz away and resume an invigorating serenity.

How to Stay Fresh this Summer (Giveaway!)

The summer is filled with rosé parties, adorably-flirty work clothes and unfortunately, sweltering subway rides in which your armpits are exposed as you cling to an overhead rail to narrowly avoid touching the sleeping homeless guy.

How to unblock sunscreen clogged pores.


The statistics on skin cancer and sun damage are terrifying, and as a society we’ve embraced sunscreen, but have you begun to notice some not-so-glamorous effects of SPF on your skin?  Today we’re talking about sunscreen induced pimples and dull skin. 

While sunscreens have come a long way, they still manage to infiltrate your pores.  Plus spending time outside makes you sweat which further contributes to summertime acne. The bottom line is that you need to remove your sunscreen each night.  Leaving it on the skin will not only allow for further, unncessary chemical absorption, but will lead to a duller complexion.

Depending on your age, we are recommending two must-have collections to dissolve daily SPF, while repairing damaged skin.

For girls in their 20s, stick to a skincare regimen that fights acne.  We recommend the proactiv+ three-step treatment because it’s pretty inexpensive and totally effective.  Spending time outdoors kicks up activity in your sweat glands.  Start by cleansing the skin with proactiv+ skin smoothing exfoliator to cut through oil, dirt and other impurities. Then apply a thin layer of the proactiv+ pore targeting treatment to penetrate the pore and kill bacteria.  Last step is to even out the skin with their complexion perfecting hydrator, which moisturizes and balances tone and texture.  This trifecta will help keep skin radiant and pimple-free throughout the summer.
 
For ladies in their 30s, repair skin while combatting signs of aging.  Our friends at OLEHENRIKSEN, launched a new collection hitting shelves this fall, which will help you reignite the light from within.  The EMPOWER foaming milk cleanser will give your skin a radiance boost while exfoliating away sunscreen and other impurities – a practice the brand is known for.  Then top off your regimen with EMPOWER featherweight moisturizer. We heart this product because it wears light upon the skin while erasing damaging free radicals.

This summer, no matter your age, you don’t have to endure bumpy or unprotected skin.
