An Easy Cool Down!

I think that just about all of us in the US are dealing with hot, hot heat this week. I am trying to stay as cool as possible by either being inside in my 68 degree house, or lounging in the pool. But it it almost too hot to even stay in the pool for any period of time.

What to do, what to do? Try some cooling cream.

Too Faced's Frozen Lotion.

Experience the icy sizzle of this amazing body moisturizing mousse. A rush of cooling, crackling crystals coat the skin with a golden glow while skin-soothing ingredients like aloe, hibiscus flower, and ginseng pamper dry, sun-scorched skin with a surge of chilly, intense hydration.

It sounds divine, doesn't it? Frozen Lotion is available at Sephora for $22 and looks to be the cutest way to cool down ever!

Helping me Get Through the Day.

I have been spending so much time outdoors, and do everything I can to protect my face form the sun. I always wear a wide brimmed hat and sunglass in the sun, but that is simply not enough. Thank goodness for Sôleil Ultra Expert Sun Care SPF 50 Sunscreen Face Cream for Sensitive Skin from Lancome.

This face cream has been a savior for my sensitive skin. I am so sensitive when it comes to many sun screens, and this has not bothered my face at all. In fact, I love the hydration.  This cream is formulated with SunCalm Complex that is made with rose extract to help soothe sensitive skin,  Collasôme, an advanced formula that helps boost skin’s elasticity, along with the broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection, while 100% botanically pure Vitamin E helps to strengthen the skin’s natural defenses by neutralizing free radicals.

This cream goes on my face first thing in the morning after cleansing, and is re-applied if I am going to the beach or pool. A must have for any beach or cosmetic bag - especially if you are sensitive to sun screens as I.
