5 Ways to Stay Feeling Fab in Horrendous Heat

August is the worst of the summer months. The temperature is beyond just hot and it is almost impossible to feel sexy. Clothes feel tight and sticky; make up feels heavy and pore-clogging. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Here are 5 products to make yourself feel sexier quickly and easily!

Ponytail Holder-There is nothing easier than throwing your hair up in a ponytail, chignon, or bun. Whether yours is low or high, you’ll look instantly chic, and won’t have that nasty neck sweat. My favorite is the Goody Ouchless Elastics in Neutrals.

  • Sunglasses-Aviators, Wayfarers, Round, Square or Oversize-they all look good. If you have to be outside and don’t feel like caking on makeup, throw on a pair of sunglasses! No one will ever know you have a naked face, and better yet it’ll make you seem mysterious! Every girl should have a little mystery to them! I love cute cheap ones like these from Forever 21.

  • Razor-In the heat of summer, nothing feels better than smooth shaven legs. Waxing and depilatories take too long. The fastest way to silky gams-a razor. Grab a can of shaving cream or even your conditioner bottle and get to work! I’ve been known to nab some of my boyfriend’s disposable razor for an extra close shave but my normal razor is a Venus!

  • Light Lotion/Moisturizer-Lotion and Moisturizer are two of my favorite things, but during summer, thick creamy lotion just won’t do. Nothing is worse than sweaty lotiony skin underneath your clothes. But the sun and water can drain the moisture out of your skin, so lotion/moisturizer is necessary. Gel based lotions are perfect for summer. You get all the moisture without the gross creamy feel afterward. Nivea’s Smooth Sensation is one of my favorite brands.

  • Self-Tanner-No summer is complete with out golden tan skin. The safest way to get a bronze glow is by self-tanner. Formulas have come a long way over the years and it is easier than ever to swipe on some self-tanner and look brown, not orange. My favorite is Loreal Sublime Bronze Towelettes. They are quick easy and fast drying.

Beat the heat, while looking hot yourself!
