|Wedding photo on a hot, summer day…eek!|
It’s the middle of September, and summer has officially arrived in San Diego. Up until now we’ve had warm days, but the past couple weeks have been extra hot and humid. And with humid weather comes sticky, sweaty skin.
Fun, right? Not!
A couple weekends ago one of my best friends got married. Now imagine a 95 degree day standing in 4 inches heels and wearing a pool blue dress that showed off my sweaty pits in a room with no air conditioning. I may be smiling in this picture, but can you sense the agony I felt from the heat and humidity?!?
And who wants to smell like a hot mess? Thankfully, my lifesavers have been Lavanila’s vanilla grapefruit perfume, Yes To Blueberries body wash, and of course, good ole deodorant.
Vanilla grapefruit from Lavanila is a perfume that is great for those who love sweet – yet earthy and rich – scents. It features notes of lime, patchouli, grapefruit, heliotrope, bergamot, madagascar vanilla and sandalwood. The first time I put it on, I was in love. I only apply it to my wrists and maybe one spray on the body, which lasts for most of the day.
Lavanila Laboratories also offers the vanilla grapefruit scent in a body wash, body butter, and deodorant. The company is known for its healthy approach to producing beauty products, offering products made with natural and organic ingredients, free from harsh chemicals.
Yes To is another company that believes in natural beauty, creating products with organic ingredients and devoid of all the nasty stuff that is bad for the skin.
If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile now, you know how much I love sweet, fruity scents. My sweet-smelling regimen begins in the shower with Yes To Blueberries body wash that was just recently added to Yes To’s collection of body washes. I also have the cucumber scented body wash, which I use when I want to relax.
What I like about Yes To Blueberries body wash keeps my skin soft and moisturized. Most of the time I don’t even have to put on lotion after taking a shower, that’s how gentle it is on the skin. The blueberry scent doesn’t carry onto the skin, which is fine. The aromatherapy in the shower is enough for me.
Remember that a healthy skin is a healthy you! Smelling good is just a bonus 🙂
