A recent trip back east to visit my parents reminded me of one of the main reasons I live in California: the high humidity of Toronto left me wilted by lunchtime! But of course even here in LA the heat can get pretty intense, making a calming, cooling morning routine the key to feeling as fresh as possible all day. Fortunately, a few easy but effective switches do the trick just fine!
For starters, I’ve streamlined my wardrobe selection with just a few go-to breezy shirts. Instead of my usual perfume I use a soap in the same fragrance for a lighter touch, and I’ve replaced my moisturizer with spritz a bit of hydrating rosewater. And speaking of hydration, I try to drink a full liter of water the moment I wake up. By the time I have my first sip of (iced) coffee, I’m ready for whatever summer has up its sleeve!
