Sweat-Proof Your Scalp
Fight Frizzy Hair
Scorching temperatures and blazing sun can leave your face looking flushed and you feeling generally overheated and blah. An instant fix: coconut water. "It has a very cooling effect on the body," says Dr. Susan Evans, Chief of Dermatology for Skincare Physicians of Beverly Hills. You can also fill a water bottle with ice water and toss in some cucumber slices. The cold H2O will keep your body temp down, and the added flavor will encourage you to keep swigging.
Stay Dry All Day
Nix Stinky Feet
Be Prepared to Cry
Whether you're fighting hot temperatures (or tears of happiness) accept that your bridal makeup will melt or smudge. Use waterproof mascara (you can condition lashes before and after to prevent drying) and keep makeup-removing cotton swabs on hand, like these ones.
Go with an Updo
When it's steamy outside, letting your hair hang on your back, neck, and shoulders is as unbearable as wearing a wool scarf. Instead, apply a leave-in conditioner to damp locks and slick them back into a tight, coiled bun. "The combo of wet hair and the conditioner will keep the style in place all day," says celebrity stylist and NYC salon owner Mark Garrison. Bonus: When you take it down at night you'll have soft, loose waves.
Keep Your Cool
If you must blow-dry your hair, do a cold-water rinse at the end of your shower. It will regulate your body temperature from the warm water and add some shine to your style, says Mele. For a truly invigorating experience, use a mint-spiked shampoo and conditioner. We like Avalon Organics Peppermint Strengthening Shampoo and Conditioner.
