Surviving the Heat {Beauty Monday} {Beach in the City}

by Valerie on August 18, 2009 · 3 comments

Beach in the City – A seasonal feature about bringing the beach to the city even when you can’t take a vacation.

It is now summer in DC as I remember it – hot, humid, and everyone is miserable. Here are some of my beauty routine go-to’s to survive summer here:

* water, lots of it

* sunscreen, lots of that too

* 100% Pure Organic Lavender Seafoam Facial Cleanser

* KZM Facial Care Mists

* tinted moisturizer

* cream eye shadows

* Urban Decay Primer Potion when I wear powder shadows

* loose powder

* Bobbi Brown’s new Antigua Illuminating Bronzing Powder {it’s been holding up wonderfully, even better than Nars Laguna}

* iced herbal teas

* in-shower body lotions

* a sense of humor

love the in-shower lotions idea. here's a thought, why not put that lotion in the fridge and pull it out just before showering, when you put it on it will be have a cooling effect :)

Great ideas! I especially needed the items on this list while in Washington. Lots of SPF and loose powder were needed, especially Monday. I carried my facial mist everywhere as well. Thanks for mentioning it :)

I love Karley's carrot seed facial mist!!
And in shower lotions are a great idea.
