The beauty products that truly beat the heat
No slip, no sweat
As temperatures soar and nerves get more frazzled, we need powerful and effective beauty products to help quell the heat and keep us looking on top of our game. Life's too short to get annoyed over a sweaty T-zone or greasy, flat hair. Here are the makeup, skincare and hair products that make the cut.
THE DEEP CLEANSER
The hot weather often brings with imbalanced skin that leads to breakouts, oiliness and enlarged pores. Start your regimen with a good cleanser that gets rid of shine and grime, but still leaves skin sufficiently hydrated.
Try: Estée Lauder Nutritious Micro-Algae Pore Purifying Cleansing Jelly, $30.
THE MIRACLE MIST
One of the easiest ways to refresh skin is with a good facial mist. This one has a milky colour influenced by the coconut its ingredients and helps to set makeup for a fresh, dewy complexion.
Try: Marc Jacobs Beauty Re(Cover) Perfecting Coconut Setting Mist, $62
THE POWER SPRAY
A high-quality hairspray makes the difference between on point hair and a bird's nest of a mess. This one from Kevin.Murphy has a dry finish and helps remove excess oil and styling products while offering light hold.
Try: Kevin.Murphy Doo.Over
THE LONG-LASTING CUSHION
While SPF is always must, a cushion foundation with inbuilt UV protection is a bonus. Try one that is lightweight and can be easily used for touch-ups.
Try: Make Up For Ever UV Bright Cushion SPF35/PA+++ , $64
