How To Weather The Heat – Beauty Products To Keep You Looking Fresh

By the time I get to work these days, I need another shower. It's getting hot outside (not to mention underground for you public transportation takers) and the temperature is just going to keep on rising. I'm well aware of global warming – but this is borderline ridiculous. It's not even July. Not only do I need to change my top (I'm a sweaty girl), I need a fresh coat of makeup and something to defrizz my hair. But, with my tendency to run as late as I do, I need to do all this very quickly in order to have enough time to grab my coffee in the café and be seated promptly at my desk by 9 AM.

I went to my Sephora on my lunch break today – enough is enough. I need products I can put on before work to fight the commute's harsh conditions and to keep at my desk to freshen myself when I get to the cubical. I'm adding a primer to my morning foundation routine. SmashBox's Photo Finish Foundation Primer, which won Best of Sephora 2007, helps keep my foundation firmly in place and smoothes any wrinkles already caused by the sun ($36 – $42. I picked up this Peter Thomas Roth Clinical Skin Care Instant Mineral SPF 30 ($30). It got rid of the shine caused by sweat and coated me with some additional sun protection.

I don't exactly smell as fresh and floral as when I left my apartment 30 minutes earlier after sweating it out in a crowded semi-air conditioned subway car. Stella McCartney makes this great miniature roll on perfume called STELLA that smells of rose, peony flower, amber, mandarin, and rose absolute ($16). It's so yummy I picked up the full size version too. If a body spritzer is more your style, you'll love this Pink Sugar Body Spritzer from Aquolina ($20).

My hair really takes the brunt of the heat. If it's humid and rainy hot, I frizz. If it's dry hot, it gets a bit oily. Ted Gibson makes these hair sheets ($25 for 10). They perform like a dryer sheet does to static on your chiffon skirt. They defrizz, prevent overdrying, eliminate odors, and give your hair protection from the sun. Not only are these great for commute repair, but they're also great to throw in your gym bag if there's no time for a shower after a workout. For those days when my melon looks like it was dipped in baby oil I have my Oscar Blandi Dry Shampoo To-Go ($11). It absorbs excess oil at the roots of my hair and even gives it a boost of volume.
