I know I just came back from the beach, but this party just doesn’t stop. In honor of a birthday celebration, we’ve planned a day at the pool this weekend. And while I should be fairly pool ready, I’ve come across a couple gems that are perfect for late summer grooming.
First up, my skin can get really dry and itchy. Not to mention, I tend to have a very unpleasant (even violent) reaction to bug bites. I managed to avoid a burn at the beach, but the extra sun dehydrated my skin. So I’ve been soothing and cooling with Sarna Original lotion. The menthol and camphor cool on contact, easing itching calming inflamed skin. While it does have a strong fragrance, I actually find it medicinally pleasant. For those who aren’t wild about menthol, try the Sarna Sensitive lotion – super hydrating, fragrance-free, steroid-free and powered with an analgesic to ease an painful dryness.
And of course we all know the battle against hair during the summer months. A little tidbit about me – I’ve lasered most of my body. But I skipped the top half of my legs. In the winter, I just let it run wild – I got lucky with blond, fine hair. But in the summer, I can’t resist getting rid of that stuff. Because I don’t want to be bothered shaving all the time, I have turned to the Philips Satin Perfect epilator. While it does pull hair out at the root (with a tiny bit of sting), my easily irritated skin manages to stay calm and no redness to be seen. Not to mention, the results last loads longer than regular shaving. And you don’t have to grow your hair out to use it – it removes even the shortest of hair. I’m just about ready to ditch my razor for good!
