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.
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.
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.
