Surviving The Summer Heat

Surviving The Summer Heat || Not Copper Armour

Being a pale and pasty miss, I tend not to do well in the Summer heat, although I love a sunny day it can be my worst season overall in the year when it comes to looking after the body. It's possible the hotter season may be plagued by sunburn, heat rash, rub marks and the occasional mosquito bite so instead of being a Debbie downer on the matter, it's time to find some alternatives to shield and battle the more negative side of Summer so you can enjoy your time. How do you look after yourself and survive the summer months?
