Beauty wonders that genuinely survive 30 + degree heat



For the last couple of weeks, I was away on my holidays visiting Toronto and also Washington DC (both of which I’d highly recommend). I knew it was going to be warm but had no idea just how much so. In fact, ‘warm’ isn’t the word – with temperatures topping 33 degrees some days it was positively scorching.

There was also the issue of humidity to deal with too, but I shouldn’t complain, everywhere indoors was air conditioned which made it a lot more bearable.

The intense heat and humidity were great for testing out products though and here are some that came out on top.

As you can imagine, skin protection was a big priority, but more so than ever on this trip, as back in June, I had a bad experience with a sun cream that didn’t work properly, resulting in me getting really badly burnt on my feet while out on a photo shoot.

I wasn’t taking any chances, so brought along Shiseido Expert Sun Lotion SPF50 (€36) and slathered it on every morning and topping up a little during the day as well. It worked an absolute treat. It doesn’t have a smell and absorbs quickly, something that I was delighted about because it meant I could wear whatever fragrance I wanted rather than having to walk around smelling like a pina colada.
