So today is going to be HOT, 35 degrees, jeeps! I love the warm weather but you can end up a hot sticky mess if you don’t use the right products when the mercury rises.
Most moisturisers will make you sweat more in the heat and can block your pores, so I recommend banning the creams and opting for gels or sparks instead. Indeed Labs hydraluron moisture jelly (£24.99 Boots) is my must-use facial moisturiser as it really doesn’t make you perspire, but the ingredients lock in moisture and leave your skin feeling supple, so you won’t miss your normal face cream. You will have to add an extra SPF though to stop UV damage.
The same rule applies for the body, even more so if you are opting for bare legs. I am loving Vaseline Spray & Go Body Moisturiser (£4.99 Superdrug), as the fine miss hydrates without the greasiness - and is super quick to apply.
Inevitably you will overheat at some point, be it on the tube or walking in the sunshine, so I freshen up with a spritz of Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Mist (£46 House of Fraser) which smells amazing and is an instant refresh and pick-me-up, especially straight from the fridge.
It goes without saying that you need a super good deodorant today, so I’m opting for Dove Soft Feel Antiperspirant Deodorant Compressed (£3.25 Tesco) which smells like baby powder and being a dinky compressed bottle, you can keep hand-bag ready.
Finally, having a fresh gorgeous summer scent will make you feel like you are pool side in the Mediterranean rather than stifling in the city heat and I’m opting for Elie Saab Resort Collection Eau de Toilette (£47 John Lewis) which I talked about more in my Summer Fragrance Edit. So I hope these products help you beat the heat today!
