Feeling hot hot hot

The temperature is rising by the day, and I for one am seriously living for the wonderful weather we’ve been experiencing. However, there’s nothing worse than feeling sticky in the sunshine; experiencing the likes of thigh chafing and daily discomfort. So, I’ve put together some Summer essentials that will keep your skin silky smooth, free from the dreaded chub rub, and leave you feeling cool as a cucumber.


Beauty Bits

From the ultimate anti-chafe stick to the most cooling creams around, these are my top picks for this time of year.

  1. Body The Original Anti Chafe Balm $7.99 Vitamin-enriched and moisturising for the skin, this provides an invisible barrier against chafing, irritation, and raw skin caused by rubbing. Just slide the balm over your skin before you put on your clothes and you’ll have effective and long lasting protection for daily use in demanding conditions.
  2. Clarins Energising Emulsion For Tired Legs €32.40 helps relax and relieve tired legs, has a cooling effect and promotes a feeling of lightness and well-being. Leaves skin soft and supple and helps maintain its natural moisture balance.
  3. Herbivore After Sun Soothing Aloe Mist £10 is for those days spent a little too long in the sun. This soothing mist is rich in aloe, mint and lavender to cool down and moisturise dry and irritated skin.
  4. Embryolisse Eclat du Regard (Radiant Eye) £20.50 is the BEST cooling and rejuvenating stick that has both instant and long-term benefits. It promises to boost radiance and brighten the eye area while the blend of sugar derivatives and aloe vera combine to moisturise and refine skin texture.
  5. Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Masque £41.50 this refreshing green gel is a comfort blanket for skin that’s suffering. Starring Cucumber Extract to naturally nourish, hydrate, soothe, calm and de-puff. There’s one sold every minute in the world which is pretty incredible.
  6. Milk Make Up Cooling Water £21.50 this ingenious balm grants an instant refreshing and cooling sensation when smoothed over skin. This icy stick’s hydrating and cell-energising properties are amplified by caffeine which boosts micro-circulation to revitalise and leave skin looking super fresh and glowing.
