Summer is in full bloom and temperatures are at their peak all across the country. I don’t know about you but sweat has been enemy number one to my cool, calm and collected summer look. So I turned to our community to get us some tips from our resident fashionistas on how they beat the heat in style and make it look easy.
What are your must-have summer skincare products?
My must have summer skincare products are Thayer’s Witch Hazel and Blackhead Removal, [raw] shea butter, Shea Moisture’s Charcoal Cleansing Clay, and Bio-oil.
How do you prevent sweat from ruining your summer makeup look?
I love setting with a translucent powder in my T-zone and letting it ”bake” while I do my eyebrows or other areas of my face. Choose one that is good for your skin type. For oily skin, I like the Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder and for dry skin, the Hourglass Veil Translucent Setting Powder is great. A great primer makes a world of a difference as well!
What are your top three Beat The Heat summer hairstyles.
Ponytails, BRAIDS, and CUTE WIGS!
How do you combat frizzy hair in the summer?
I always deep condition once a week with a leave-in mask, prep my hair with Briogeo Farewell Frizz Spray, and then finger coil my curls with Miss Jessie’s Quick Curls leave-in. Not touching my hair is key to a frizz-free mane. If I am styling my hair up I always use a strong hold gel that doesn’t flake or make the hair crunchy.
