It’s finally looking like summer and we couldn’t be more thrilled! We have some exciting traveling plans this season and we’re so glad it’s finally so close. While we love the summer, we know that the heat can be completely unbearable sometimes and the sweating is REAL. We take all precautions to make sure that we stay fresh and smell good all day long, no matter how hot is it.
We wanted to share some of the things we do and keep in our purse during those hot summer days. Take a look below and let us know if you use anything else in the comments!
Please wear deodorant! This is an absolute must do if you don’t want to walk around with an odor all day long. We suggest using a powder based one. Whenever we’ve used gel based deodorants, our armpits never felt dry because it would start mixing with the sweat. We swear by Dove’s Dry Spray. They come in so many great scents AND it keeps us dry all day long. You can find a few other options below!
We don’t have a car, so we have to rely on the New York City subways to get to and from work. One thing that we keep in our purse at all times is a pack of napkins. On extremely hot days, we definitely begin to sweat on our way to subway and it can be even hotter when you have to wait for the train. Being able to pull out a napkin and quickly blot has been the ultimate lifesaver.
These are great for when you need a quick refresh and don’t have access to a shower. If you don’t have makeup to worry about, a quick swipe could be just what you need.
Chafing Relief Gel
For those of ladies who have thighs that rub together on those sweltering summer days, it can be so irritating! We like to keep a chafing relief gel in our purse, so we don’t have to worry about being uncomfortable all day long. We recently began using the Monistat Complete Care Chafing Relief Powder Gel and it’s been working wonders.
We keep a little scent in our purse all year round. I mean, it’s small so it’s easy to take everywhere and it’s so convenient when you feel like your perfume is wearing off or if you just want a quick pick up. In the summer, if you’re worried about getting a little funky this is so helpful. Just make sure to apply after using a cleansing cloth if you’re super sweaty, so it’s not mixing with the sweat!
