I’ve been lucky enough to escape to warmer climates during this extra long winter. While I was in Cuba and The Bahamas I took time out to put my favorite hot weather beauty hacks into practice.
I use five easy hot weather beauty hacks when I’m in hot weather and they keep me feeling fresh and flawless. Here they are:
Get Fresh & Stay Fresh
When I take my shower in the morning, I use my favorite shower products and lotions, but there are two special things I always do. I lather up with exfoliating gloves. I exfoliate to remove dead cells from my skin’s surface so my skin is soft and looks better. Exfoliating also prevents clogged pores and acne. I always make sure to exfoliate under my arms to prevent in-grown hairs.
Once I’ve used he exfoliating gloves, hopped out of the shower and moisturized my skin, I’m perfectly primed to stay fresh with my favorite deodorant. While I was in Cuba, I knew long hot days would be part of our travels so I brought Secret’s Clinical Strength deodorant with me. Secret’s Clinical Strength Collection provides 2x the sweat protection vs. an ordinary antiperspirant, so I was able to walk around Havana all day long confident that would stay fresh all day long and that I wouldn’t feel sweaty or have un-glamorous “pit stains”. I use the clear gel, but Secret Clinical Strength Deodorant comes in three distinct forms (invisible solid, smooth solid and clear gel).
If you’re nervous about using a clinical strength deodorant, I’d suggest showering again at night and using the exfoliating gloves under your arms, I do that so that my skin is product free over night.
Sometimes certain colors and fabrics can give us away if we get sweaty. I loved being able to wear this blue sleeveless jumper and not worry about any sweaty pit stains.
Even though I was nervous on the boat to go parasailing, I knew that Secret Clinical Strength Deodorant had my back. This is why it’s my go-to travel deodorant and perfect for keeping your hot weather beauty together. We want to look good and smell good… Secret helps us do both.
Shea Butter for Anti-Chaffing
Another warm weather beauty hack is to keep a little shea butter with you to combat inner thigh chaffing. It’s a natural skin protectant and it makes it easy to walk around in your cute sun dress on a warm summer day feeling completely comfortable.

DIY Tinted Moisturizer
Every summer I find myself wearing less and less makeup, but I always want to make sure my complexion is flawless. The easiest way for me to do this is to create my own tinted moisturizer. I take a dollop of my favorite skin cream (make sure it has SPF!) then I add a pump of my favorite liquid foundation. I mix it up and then apply it to my face. It creates the perfect dewy skin in my exact shade!
I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to waste any precious summer minutes shaving and I absolutely don’t want razor bumps… so I wax! Don’t be nervous I’ve got Eight tips for Plus Size Brazilian Waxing here.
Stick Your Moisturizer in the Fridge
I love to stick my nighttime moisturizer in the fridge. Making that creamy cold moisturizer even colder is the perfect ending to my night time routine and helped to cool me off right before bed. It feels sooooo good!
Those are my 5 super easy hot weather beauty hacks. I start my day with a luxurious shower using exfoliating gloves, I swipe on Secret’s Clinical Strength deodorant and then I know I’m good all day until I cool down with another shower and moisturize with my extra cool face cream straight from my fridge!
