The Summer season has officially started in Southeast Asia! It’s that time of the year for fewer clothes and the perfect time to hit your favorite beaches, and I’m gonna tell you how I survive the crazy heat in this part of the world

The weather during this season can go up to 37°C or 98.6°F for my American readers. Now, summer is one of the best time of the year but sometimes the heat can be unbearable.

1. Sunscreen

No surprises there! Even if it’s not Summer everyone should use a sunscreen. Buy a powerful lightweight sunscreen that protects you from those harmful UV rays. I recommend using Supergoop products. This company is all about sunscreen and they have a wide range of products to choose from. One of my favorites to use when I’m out swimming is their 100% Mineral Sunscreen Mist with Marigold Extract Broad Spectrum SPF 30 for it doesn’t contain any oxybenzone which harms the coral reefs when I’m out in the water.

2. Hats

Okay so technically hats are still sunscreen but that doesn’t mean we’ll just use products on our skin and tossed out those fashionable summer hats. Wide Brim hats are the best hats to opt out for this season. There are a lot of options out there and hats don’t go out of style, so buy one that’s quality made and you can always re-use them for the next summer season.

3. Facial Mist

Don’t you just hate it when you’re walking outside for a few minutes and you’re already sweating as you ran for an hour? Well, thank goodness for facial mists! It provides that sweet relief of refreshment to your face for a brief moment! Choose a facial mist that’s beneficial to your skin. I recommend using the Caudalie Beauty Elixir.

4. Fans

We should get fans back in style! Although it takes up space in your beach bag, this handy little thing will save you from the heat while you’re stuck somewhere without AC. Every department store sells them so it shouldn’t be difficult to find one to your liking.

5. Tinted Moisturizer

Tossed out your heavy foundation during this season and switched it to a tinted moisturizer. Not only it hydrates your skin but it provides a sheer finish to cover up some imperfections and make your skin look healthy. There is a lot of tinted moisturizer in the market as of the moment but nothing beats Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20.

7. Sandals

Put your winter or ankle boots to the closet and make room for sandals this time. Your feet also need some relief from the humidity and if they could talk? they would thank you big time for wearing sandals if it’s 100°F outside

8. Sundress

But first, a riddle. What piece of women’s attire, most stokes a man’s desire?

It’s a sundress by the way.

Gone are the days when you have to layer your clothes and wear something lightweight. Choose the perfect fabric during this summer like linen, cotton or silk.

9. Swimwear

I’m sure that you’ll hit the beach soon with your family or friends, and you need an appropriate swimwear for this. There is something magical about the ocean’s salt water. It’s healing, it’s rejuvenating and it’s a source of eternal happiness for us. Happy people spend most of their time near the ocean.
