Top Three: Summer Complaints & Remedies for 2014
I don't know about you, but we have been experiencing some sweltering heat in southern Orange County this summer (2014)! And many of my Beauty Mates have reached out to me inquiring about some of the issues they have faced.

Complaints & Remedies for Summer 2014

My top remedy for this would be to: go light on your face, and adopt waterproof/water resistant products for your eyes.
