5 Beauty Must Haves For Staying Cool This Summer

I don't know about you but I feel like this has been one hot summer. Maybe it is the lack of AC in my home or the growing belly but I will tell you that my daily at home wardrobe has turned into undies and a tank top. Yes, it's a no pants party at the SHC house. 

Well ladies, for today's post I wanted to feature a few amazing products that have been helping me survive this crazy heat.

Beauty on the Go

First up, ladies, I am so in love with this mirror from Floxsee. This baby provides is portable, adjustable, hangable and foldable. Basically, you can move it anywhere you want which for me it means I can drag it to the coolest room in the house, or in this case, outside of the house.  I love that it provides a three way view and that it is still travel friendly and of course I also love that the mirror is break resistant which for this clumsy girl is super important – no 7 years of bad luck for me!

Easy Hair

Now you ladies know I decided to go short this summer and a big part was the heat factor. I really needed something that was easy, quick and simple.  Pulling out a blow dryer was definitely a deal breaker for me this summer.  I've been trying a few different products and one that is definitely on my list is SEXY HAIR: Soy Renewal Beach Spray.  Ladies, I am in love with this product. It smells amazing and I love that it includes Argan Oil which repairs and restores my hair while making it look fabulous. This product is great for a more natural beach wavy look because while it provides texture it doesn't leave my hair sticky or product feeling. 

Stay Cool

Now ladies, I know the temptation is real to hide out under your AC all summer long but for me getting out and about it very important. As an expecting mom I've really enjoyed staying active and part of that routine is hitting the beach or the pool.  Swimming is a perfect way to get my workout in while still cooling off and tracking my time out in the water has been much easier with the Casio Baby – G watch.  This summer I am sporting the BABY-G newest watch BA110BE and what I love the most is its sporty look that easily goes from the mall to the park and because it is water resistance up to 100 meters I don't have to worry about taking it off once I hit the pool. It really is the perfect warm weather accessory. 

Stay Fresh

Summer heat has me literally jumping in the shower several times a day just to feel fresh. I recently found Simply Summer’s Eve new Cleansing Cloths and I love them. Feminine care is super important to me so I love that I can toss these in my purse, gym bag or in my luggage when I travel.  They are available in two nature-inspired scents – Mandarin Blossom & Coconut Water. Coconut Water is my favorite and yes these are hypoallergenic and gynecologist tested. Sweat happens folks but now you can stay fresh even when you are out and about all day in this crazy heat. 

Fresh Face

Summer time is the best time to go bare and fresh face. Having acne prone and problematic skin, it also means that I try my best to keep stuff off of it and go as natural as possible.  Two products that I've been using lately which are awesome are the PFB Vanish + Chromabright and GLAM Face & Eye Cupping Set.

First, let's discuss PFB Vanish + Chromabright.  Shaving and even waxing more then normal during the summer can sometimes leave my skin red, irritated and with ingrown hairs. I love that this product can be used in the bikini area and it's also safe enough for bae to use on his face.  It also can be used in replacement of deodorant under your arms to help reduce dark spots caused by shaving. I just started testing it out but I will make sure to round back soon on social media to let you know my full thoughts on it.

Another product that I love is the GLAM Face & Eye Cupping Set.  Now I will admit, I was a cupping newbie before receiving this product and I wasn't sure what to make of it. The kit included 2 Face Cups that can be used for the face, neck, décolletage, along with 2 Eye Cups and a free exfoliating brush. I must admit I was a little intrigued about the idea of a non-invasive approach to giving myself a mini at home facial. With going no makeup most of the summer, these little cups really helped my skin feel brighter, toner and refreshed.  Curious about trying out this set, well guess what – I have a coupon code for you! Use BABBLE15 for 15% off your purchase.

Fresh face and ready to hit to pool to cool off. How are you staying cool this summer?

Well my lovelies, I hope some of these products help you stay cool and comfortable. Remember, it is also super important to stay hydrated and out of the sun during these high heat. Protect your skin by applying sunscreen often or sitting under an umbrella.  What are some of you summer must haves?

    I love all of these things. I think that the wipes are really great because you can throw it in your purse and use them whenever you need to freshn up.
