Heat Wave Friendly Beauty Tips

As this heat wave is sweeping the nation and we know you all want to stay looking as fresh and beautiful as always, we thought we'd give some tips on skin care and using foundation during this hot and humid summer.

First of all it's important to exfoliate and use a good moisturizer so that foundation does not get trapped in your pores.

Moisturizers act as a buffer, so the makeup doesn't penetrate the skin. Try Bobbi Brown's Protective Face Lotion with SPF 15.

Or if you have oily skin try Estee Lauder Sparkling Clean Oil Control Lotion. It's both a toner and a moisturizer that primes skin to achieve maximum results.

Also, consider using oil blotting papers throughout the day. Going from humidity to air conditioning can be extremely hard on your skin.

In terms of foundations, I've researched quite a few for you and have found that Bobbi Brown's Oil Free Even Finish Foundation is widely popular (as well as their best seller). People love it because it's matte and oil free.

It comes in a compact as well called Oil Free Even Finish Compact Foundation. What's awesome about this foundation is that is starts off as a cream, but then turns into a matte powder once it hits the skin. Isn't it amazing how technologically advanced cosmetics are?!

My favorite moisturizer is Clinique Moisturizing Gel, Its oil free and wakes your skin up. Good for the day after a big night because it has caffeine in it, this takes swelling and puffiness down.
