My Personal Hot Weather Lifesavers

Beauty and Lifestyle lifesaver tricks for the hot weather

Hot weather is here, and every gal that has spent a summer in New York City knows that you need more than one good ole beauty lifesaver to make it until September arrives.

That is why today I’m spilling the beans and sharing some of my deepest, most secret hot weather lifesavers that will keep you safe from more than one embarrassing situation.

1. No More Chafing

OK, so chafing is one of the most common summer woes, no matter your size or shape. We all sweat, we all have legs, so we all chafe at some point. Full stop.

Lucky for us savvy gals, Bandelettes has been such a successful invention that it has now a wide range of products to have you covered in style during the dog days of the summer. These lace thigh bands look absolutely pretty, and they will act as a classy barrier against friction when you walk, run, or do any summer activity (yep, even when you want to have a nice long siesta in Central Park without having your thighs getting stuck together.)

Bandelettes retail for $15.99 and are available at

2. Buh Bye Pesky Infections!

If you are a germophobe like me, you’ll surely know that your pool towels can turn nasty in a matter of minutes. As we literally put them anywhere, they can carry a ton (and I mean a ton) of nasty bacteria that you will then transfer to your skin. The thought just makes me shudder.

The masterminds behind Laguna Blue share my line of thinking, because they have launched a special collection of bacterial-resistant towels specially designed for the summer. Eco-friendly, super soft and with an adorable striped design, they are designed resist nasty bacteria commonly found in regular cotton towels, such as E. Coli or MRSA. Plus, they dry twice as fast as your regular cotton towels and need half the amount of water to wash. Isn’t that smart?

Laguna Blue, aka the smarter towel, is available in a wide range of sizes at and Walmart. The pool size Summer Cabana Stripe retails for $21.95.

3. Support a Good Cause In Style

Who said that it’s too hot during the summer to support a good cause? You can make a bold statement while you are chillin’ in the swimming pool!

If you want to raise awareness for the important subject of climate change, don’t miss out the new unique collection of three suits. These beauties provide a message about the importance of fighting global warming, while poking gentle fun at the climate change deniers.

These suits created for a good cause are part of the campaign #WINTERISNOTHERE, and 100% of the product sales will be donated to charities focused on climate change.

If you yearn for the respite that only winter can bring, this is an ideal addition to your summer wardrobe! Worst case scenario, they are the ideal excuse to start a meaningful conversation about an issue that affects us all.

To help protect our winters and increase the visibility of the fight against damaging greenhouse gases and carbon emissions, the #WINTERISNOTHERE swimsuit collection is available at for $23.95/ea.

4. Cool Down With Eco-Chic Poise

New York is hot as hell in the summer. Yeah, I said that. For some reason, nobody seems to think that walking the Big Apple during July and August could be classified as a Capital Punishment. So, to avoid those big drops of sweat ruining your purrty looks, there’s nothing best than a purse-sized hydration mist.

However, mists come in all shapes and sizes. I particularly like Pevonia‘s eco-chic phyto aromatic mist to cool down, as it also seals and prolongs the wear of my make-up. Filled with calming botanical extracts and sodium hyaluronate to plump up your skin, it is the perfect companion for the Gothamist socialite that won’t stop during the dog days of the New York summer.

Pevonia’s Phyto-Aromatic Mist retails for $38.50.
