Desert Mermaid


Pumpkin Spice Lattes are back, and everyone is talking about fall. But let’s face it: here in Phoenix, Autumn couldn’t be further away. It’s sweltering hot -it should be 106 degrees on Saturday- so our resort game is still strong!

Like any good mermaid knows, keeping your hair and skin in tip-top shape is a poolside essential. I’ve partnered with P&G to share some fabulous beauty products with you to maintain your mane, save your skin and pump up your pout.

Daily monsoons are amping up the humidity, but that isn’t a reason to skip out on a moisturizer with SPF! Sunscreen is essential here in the Valley, and the Olay FeatherWeight Moisturizer with SPF 15 has been my go-to. FeatherWeight is a perfect name for this – it’s light as can be, but packs a quenching punch and feels like silk on the skin.

Makeup by the pool isn’t practical at all – let’s face it, in this heat, everything just melts off, right?! But adding a bit of color to my lips keeps my poolside selfie game strong. For a sweat-proof lip look, I use CoverGirl Outlast 24 Hour LipColor before I head out and then toss the soft lip balm in my beach bag to layer on as needed.

Every mermaid’s signature is her hair and hours of swimming and sunning can lead to dryness and damage. I love Pantene’s Beautiful Lengths Shampoo & Conditioner for my après-swim hair care. Not only does the line smell divine, but it’s specifically made to strengthen hair and prevent breakage. My hair always feels clean, hydrated and soft after every shower.

My favorite thing about Beautiful Lengths is the #8or8 Campaign. September 8th marked the beginning of the Pantene Beautiful Lengths #8or8 Challenge which asks people to give $8 or cut and donate 8 inches of hair to help create free, real-hair wigs for women who have lost their hair due to cancer. The wigs are distributed through American Cancer Society Wig Banks. Learn more and get involved at beautifullengths.com
