You partied like a rockstar all Memorial Weekend long. But now good old reality sets in: Your hair is fried, skin’s looking lobster red and your energy level is on empty. And guess where you get to return to? Work! So how would I handle this “Code Red” (pun intended) situation IF I were you? Well we’ve got to restore health, glow and hydration to your whole body and overall appearance head to toe. We’ve got our work cut out for us huh?  So lets start with a good, old dose of laughter to get this beauty overall going…

BRAND: IASO Extra Hydro Cream (pronounced Ee-ya-so)
PRICE: $48
The day after Memorial Day it’s all about a big S.O.S. also known as “Save Our Skin!” I’m super excited to introduce Arizona Midday viewers to IASO. It’s an award winning, Korean Skincare Brand that launched this year in the U.S. and you’re the first TV viewers anywhere in the U.S. to hear about this Asian import! IASO Extra Hydro Cream works on all skin types: normal, combination and oily complexions and works amazingly in hot climates so it’s a slam dunk for this whole town! For such a reasonable price point, this luxurious cream-gel hydrator delivers on high quality ingredients! It’s infused with 3 of my faves: aloe, green tea and black willow bark to impart a fresh, lifted look, firmer feeling & radiance to complexions. Big surprise and bonus is it’s ability to control excessive sebum and treat pimples caused by oil increase in hot and humid weather. Yet another reason I think IASO made this with Phoenix in mind. The first thing you notice about it as you apply it is how cool and calming it feels. It’s hydrating without the sticky feeling which means men will gravitate to this as much as women. Extra Hydro Cream helps increase the skin’s hydration and hold moisture into your skin for 24 hours, while the ingredients work fast to repair damage and restore elastin production to your face which is essential in combating the signs of aging (my arch enemy).

BRAND: got2b Volumaniac Bodify Hairspray
SHOP: Walmart Here!
PRICE: $4.22

Does your hair have a case of the blahs today? No umph? No volume? Is it limp and lifeless from overdosing on sun, sweat and chlorine? An easy way to instantly add a dose of insane volume back into tresses is with the got2b Volumaniac Bodify Hairspray. Not all hairsprays are created equal. Some hold better and smell better than others. Volumaniac is my go-to when I want to prevent a B.H.D. (Bad Hair Day) from raining on my parade. It immediately locks in volume with enough hold for that high, big Texas glamour many of us crave. It works root to tip for a crazy boost OR you target treat specific areas like the roots or your ends.
The Secret To Using It: In order to hold crazy volume, position the bottle 8 to 10 inches from hair. Spray evenly over hair for an all over hold or spot spray and use hands to create extra volume. Re-spray after styling to hold dry finished style. For even more insane volume, use in combination with Volumaniac root lifting spray and bodifying mousse.
Bonus Tip: In the event the nozzle clogs, run it under hot water to remove the residue.

If your face got burned yesterday… and you’re heading back to work today… how do you wear makeup over it? The answer is treating the sunburn with hyaluronic serum. It Infuses water and hydration back into your sensitive skin plus has the ability to calm irritation. Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Tints covers all this ground perfectly and more. These 10 shades of foundation contain the “Hydro Boost” ingredient a weightless, water-gel, oil-free, super fast absorbing hydrator that drenches your skin in hyaluronic serum and hydration for approximately 24 hours. Recently, I got to chat with Scandal star and Neutrogena’s Beauty Partner, Kerry Washington! Kerry say the best part of Hydro Tints are they won’t cake into lines and make lines look more pronounced. The translation, as she explained it, is you require very few, if any, touchups. So it’s one less thing to pay attention to throughout your day! You have peace of mind knowing your makeup is working for your greatest good!
