How to survive Summer in the South

Friday, May 25, 2012

I love Summertime here in North Carolina...days are spent out by the pool with friends and nights fixin chicken on the grill and going out for ice cream! But theres just one thing that makes all this not as enjoyable..the HEAT!

If you're from the South then you are quite familiar with how hot it gets in the summertime..if you're not let me just tell you it gets HOT...we're talking upper 90's. Lord knows, half the reason everyone has big hair in the South is cause of the huminity. So I thought I'd share with y'all a couple things that help me survive summer in the South!

1 / 2 / 3 / 4

One: Use a tinted moisturizer instead of foundation..it will moisturize your skin in the heat, still give you good coverage for blemishes but not melt off your face like foundation.
Two: Give your face a little bit of a glow with a bronzer and highlighter duo..it will make your skin look freshly sunkissed.
Three: Brighten your eyes with a volumizing mascara.
Four: Plump and moisturize your lips with a high shine gloss.

1 / 2 / 3 / 4

One: Use a moisturizing and paraben free shampoo and conditioner like moroccan oil to keep your hair healthy during the summer months.
Two: To tame those fly aways and too keep frizz undercontrol use a styling cream to keep your hair soft and frizz-free.
Three: To give your hair a beachy wave and volume use a salt spray when your hair is damp.
Four: Protect your hair against the humidity with a finishing spray..it holds like a hairspray but isn't as thick and will keep your hair gorgeous all day.

  3. Don't forget blotting sheets! I carry these in my purse all summer to touch up my makeup without adding any powder. Lord knows these Tennessee summers will melt anything off your face.

  10. I remember summers in Dallas and don't miss the humidity at all. I agree with you, it is why Southern women have big hair. They gave up trying to tame the frizzy mess.
