There’s nothing you can do about DC’s scorching-hot temperatures, so you might as well have the right tools to be prepared for it. We surveyed style and beauty expert, social media maven, and blogger @StylingbyAna to find out what go-to beauty products she uses when the Fahrenheit soars.
Chill Cooling and Hydrating Makeup Setting Spray, Urban Decay ($38). Sephora, 3065 M St. NW, 202-338-5644
This micro-fine setting spray features temperate-control technology to chill the surface of your makeup and prevent it from melting away in the heat.
Foil Frizz & Static Control Spray, R+Co ($27). barneys.com
No girl wants to step outside and feel their freshly curled beach waves turn into an unruly mess. This frizz-fighting spray works wonders by getting rid of static and fly-aways.
Jao founder Gale Mayron describes her ultra-disinfecting and hydrating hand sanitizer as “your portable sink.” It’s a staple for every DC commuter to keep hands refreshed and germ-free no matter what sweaty summer grime you find.
Cashmere Mist Deodorant, Donna Karan ($26). Nordstrom, Fashion Centre at Pentagon City, 1400 S. Hayes St., 703-415-1121
This is one of the only deodorants that’s powerful enough to control perspiration and maintain a subtle cashmere scent despite a day of trekking through the humid city streets.
