This summer has been totally unforgiving with the temperature!
I love a nice day but I have always been super sensitive to hot climates. I burn super easily, so when we have heat waves like this I absolutely melt! I’ve got a few secrets to survival and a few must-haves that never leave my purse during the season.
TRAVEL SIZED SUNSCREEN
My must-keep at all times! I use sunscreen every morning and I always have a small bottle in my work bag. Protect your biggest organ and keep your skin safe from the sun!
LIP BALM (+ SPF!)
Like I said, SPF is super important--your lips can burn, too. Lip balm is a great helper! Besides, I hate the taste of sunscreen on my lips! Gross!
FROZEN WATER BOTTLE
I learned this from having animals for years. As the ice melts, it keeps your water chilly! Put any reusable or regular bottle in the freezer as long as it’s not one of the fancy thermal ones!
CASH AND A TOTE BAG FOR THE FARMERS MARKET
I always stay prepared for the various markets we have all summer long in my local area! I love to stock up on soaps and jams, so having the necessary space to do that is key.
A COOL ESCAPE PLAN!
Always have a backup especially if you don’t have AC! Maybe a movie theater or a library if you don’t want to spend money!
How are you going to stay cool and hydrated this summer?
