A Guide To Surviving Extreme Temperatures

Whether the clouds roll in, we get an unexpected thunder shower or have to contend with intense sun….there’s one weather condition we can alway count on in Arizona… of course i’m referring to their heat. Rain or shine it’s a summer standard! So I did some research and came with my own version of a “weather report” to melt proof, sweat proof and outsmart the heat so AZ soaring temps don’t get the best of you!

1. Elevate Dry Skin Moisture Levels By 90% W/ Your Face Wash? WTW?
Simple Micellar Water
AVAILABLE: Drugstores Nationwide

  • Dry desert air, sun exposure and air conditioning can all leave our skin feeling dehydrated and sensitive this summer.
  • The solution? Simple Skincare’s Micellar Cleansing Water.
  • This breakthrough cleanser instantly boosts skin’s hydration by 90% while cleansing and removing makeup.
  • It’s formulated with triple-purified water to minimize irritation and contains skin-loving ingredients like Pro
  • Vitamin B3 and Vitamin C.
  • You simply apply to a cotton round and gently wipe over your face – there’s no need to rinse!

2. Overheating Is So Dangerous & Unpleasant!
MISSION Athletecare Enduracool Instant Cooling Collection
My Pick is their Endura Cool Multi Cool which you can style and use 12 different ways
Available: Sports Authority
MISSION launches the latest innovation in performance technology, made from a proprietary performance fabric that cools to approximately 30 degrees below the average body temperature in under a minute when soaked with water or sweat, wrung out and then snapped in the air to activate the cooling properties.

  • This incredible technology offers innovative and sustainable cooling solutions to athletes and those who spend time outdoors (gardening, walking, biking, cutting the lawn, doing yard work, watching sporting events, etc.) – giving them the ability to feel cooler, go harder and enhance their performance.
  • The high-performance, light-weight fiber absorbs and retains moisture into its fabric core, circulating the molecules while regulating the rate of evaporation to ensure an instant and prolonged “air conditioner” effect to cool your head, neck, shoulders and other pulse points.
  • The impact lasts up to two hours before needing to be re-activated and each of the machine-washable and chemical-free wearables will continue to perform for as long as you need it.
  • Added bonus – Ultra Violet Protection Factor (UPF50) provides sun protection when covering the skin, making it the perfect outdoors summer essential to stay cool and protected.
