Solution: It's Still An Oven Outside - Get Products That Work In The Heat

August 6, 2008 by SheFindsCatesby

It goes without saying that your beauty routine, like your wardrobe, should change seasonally. Summer heat and humidity means that your skin and hair have different needs, and that your makeup starts reacting differently to the sticky weather. Here, a few easy ways to get through these dog days of August.

Body Lotion. Many folks don't even use lotion in the summer, since the humidity often does the trick for regular skin. But if you have dry skin, you probably still need a little added moisture to get through the day. We suggest a light lotion with added glow, for some two-in-one action. Olay's Touch of Sun lotion ($8) is infused with just a bit of self-tanner, which will make your skin look even more summery.


Face Wash. In August, you need something that will refresh the face, unclog pores, and wash away dirt, makeup, and sweat. The Body Shop's  Tea Tree Oil Daily Foaming Face Wash ($13) combines the naturally antiseptic and soothing powers of Tea Tree Oil and the tingle of peppermint to make a refreshing and effective liquid-to-foam formula–the best way to wake up your face.

Face Lotion. While many reputable labels make self-tanning facial moisturizers, you may not feel comfortable with any kind of semi-permanent staining of your visage. And in summer you must be particularly careful about your face care, as heat, wind, dust, and sun exposure can do a lot of damage. That's why we recommend using a light facial moisturizer with SPF proection like Neutrogena's Healthy Defense ($12.99), which boasts an SPF of 45.

Bronzer. Just because you protect your face doesn't mean you can't have a summer glow, too. Try CK's Summer Affair Bronzing Powder ($22). The micro-fine powder of this bronzer blends into skin, which is especially important when the possibility of slight sweating comes around. Give yourself an authentic sunkissed look by brushing across the areas where the sun would naturally hit: cheekbones, nose, forehead, and chin.

**And don't forget to add primer. Again, the prospect of sweating makes makeup smudging all the more likely. So in summer it's crucial to use a primer, like Sephora's Urban Decay ($16). This totally nude product will keep your eyeshadow out of the places it's not supposed to be (like those pesky creases) and make it smoother and longer-lasting where it is.
