It seems like the city is under the siege of a heat monster and my latest post for The Kit will help you navigate the humid hums with ease. Enjoy! xx
Summer Survival Tips
I’ve noticed that in the summertime, I carry more practical beauty items than glamourous ones. I opt for things that will help me in a bind or get me to my next engagement without looking like a dud.
For the Sweaty Sailor:
I carry around face blotting sheets more than I carry around my wallet. While I’m exaggerating, these sheets are crucial for those moments when you need to go from shiny to matte in five seconds flat. Try: Boscia Green Tea Blotting Linens, $12, sephora.com
For Bubbling Blisters:
I’ve noticed that summer shoes do a number on my feet so my best weapon of defense are Advanced Healing Blister tabs from Band-Aid. The squishy pods conceal the pain and provide a bit of medicine to give me the ability to dance, walk, or stroll the night away.
For the Chapped Chaps:
My favourite summer lip balm is one that reminds me of bikes rides and cold soda. I also like a little bit of sheen without a heavy lipstick in the heat. Try: Dr. Pepper Chapstick for a classic pick-me-up on a lazy summer day.
