The heat here is gaining by the day. Yesterday we had highs of 95 degrees, and today is expected to move upwards. Although I won't directly complain about the weather (I really do enjoy warm weather), I will say that because we have such extreme highs and lows, we never really prepare properly for the temperature change. I ran around the house desperate for something that would cool me down, and then I spotted it--an aerosol can of Awapuhi Moisture Mist by Paul Mitchell. I had picked this baby up a few months back, when the Mr. was having a haircut. Bored and anxious for the 20 minutes to fly by (yes, that's how long it takes--can you imagine getting out of the salon that quickly?), I began to peruse the product offerings. This spray can be used on the hair, or body as a light moisturizer--and I love a moisturizer that can be sprayed! After bringing it home, I noticed that it also contained spirulina (I drink the stuff religiously) and plankton. Even better.
Moisture-wise, it's only alright--but in terms of a cool spray on a hot and humid day, I have yet to find better! It reminds me a bit of my mom, in the sense that she used to have us tote around Evian mist in a bottle--"spray your face!" she'd say, every time the weather got warmer than fifty degrees. I've been popping up behind the hubby left and right spraying him when he least expects it, and apart from the initial comments which shall remain unrepeated, I think he's enjoying it too!
What are your secrets for beating the heat?
