One of the things I don't like about Florida is that most parts of the year, I sweat like a pig when I spend any length of time outside.
That is just a fact. High heat and high humidity equals sweat. Lots of sweat.
Since I have pretty dry skin, especially now with no colon (where almost all water uptake normally takes place), I try not to shower more than once a day.
Plus, who has the time or energy for two showers? It is after all these years clear to me that the best thing is to shower at night (so you don't have to go outside with newly applied lotion on your skin that will make you sweat even more...)
A shower in the late afternoon, after all errands and outings are done and over with is great. Then I can enjoy a fresh feeling all night. And since I haven't been sweating it up, I can just wash up and fix my face and get some deodorant on in the mornings.
Except if I have an appointment that require a little closer human interaction indoors, then a morning shower is on the schedule.
I have, however, discovered a trick that will extend that fresh, newly showered feeling, even if it is merely an illusion of sort... The fragrance CLEAN. A brilliant idea: a perfume that smells... clean.
I am particularly fond of the one named Warm Cotton. I swear, it smells just like fresh laundry coming out of the drier. Fresh and light. Not like you are wearing a perfume, more like a whiff of I-just-stepped-out-of-the-shower scent.
The CLEAN brand have other perfumes that are also great, all with the same idea, to make you smell clean. With names like Shower Fresh and Fresh Laundry. I prefer my Warm Cotton though, just my type of smell.
So after I got home this afternoon, dripping with sweat after all my errands, running around outside in the heat, I still could smell the crisp, clean smell from my neck and wrists.
Perfect if you don't like traditional perfumes as well, and THE perfect daytime scent for sure. Love it!
