Solutions for the summer-specific problems we rarely talk about
Ahh, summer… Rosé all day, the sound of crashing waves and the ability to wear flip-flops pretty much anywhere. But along with lazy days and frosty beverages come a few unsavory heat-related trade-offs that a lot of us are reluctant to talk about. Fortunately a crazy-cool company called Megababe Beauty is doing something about them.
Solution: Thigh Rescue Anti-Chafe Stick
True story… My son was a week overdue at the end of September (which is hot, humid and just plain brutal even if you’re not pregnant) and I was on my second or third “false alarm/wishful thinking” hospital visit. Since I wasn’t actually in labor, my doctor recommended I walk—outside—to help move things along. I was weighing in at a svelte 200 pounds at that point and there was enough friction between my thighs to create sparks (OK, not really, but it felt like it). This experience was very traumatic for me, but I wouldn’t still be thinking about it almost 9 years later if I had Megababe’s Thigh Rescue.
Just one swipe of this toxin-free stick leaves a barrier that helps skin glide rather than chafe. This amazing product is formulated with aloe, pomegranate seed extract, grapeseed oil, ginger root extract and lime oil so not only does it nourish your skin, it smells fresh, too. And BTW, Thigh Rescue has been such a hit that it sold out within a week—but you can get on the list for the next restock which is due next month.
Problem: Boob sweat
Solution: Bust Dust Anti-Boob-Sweat Spray
If you have boobs, I’m willing to bet you’ll experience boob sweat at some point in your life—or sometime today. Confession: I’ve resorted to using my armpit antiperspirant underneath and between “the girls” to keep them (and my shirt) dry. But with Bust Dust, those days are over.
Just spray this superfine 100% natural powder on and around your tatas (and inside your bra) and you’ll be able to keep your cool all day. Alas, this is sold out as well, but you can pre-order for the mid-July restock.
Problem: Stinky pits
Solution: Cashmere Pits and Rosy Pits
These all-natural deodorants should be dropping any day now—but the details are hush-hush until they do. From what I can see on the packaging, Cashmere Pits contains eucalyptus, rosehip and bergamot, while the Rosy Pits is formulated with tuberose, cucumber and coconut. However, the difference between the two—and their intended results—are a bit unclear.
