Drink plenty of water: It can’t be stressed enough, hydration is essential in times of extreme heat. Always carry a bottle of water in your bag and take small sips regularly.

Cool down regularly: As soon as the temperature rises, use a spray on your face and body. L’Occitane Frisson Verbena Refreshing Mist brings with it an immediate feeling of coolness. Alcohol-free, it maintains your skin’s moisture level.

Keep cool during the hottest hours: Between midday and 4pm, avoid exposure to sun, when it’s at its zenith. Prefer the shade of the garden (for the lucky ones), or inside. In the evening, if you go out, perfume yourself with L’Occitane Frisson Verbena Eau de Toilette, a real breath of fresh air!

Take plenty of showers: In order for your body to maintain its usual temperature, take a shower when the heat feels unbearable. Verbena Shower Gel will leave your skin with a lemon scent and a cool feeling so important in the heat. If your legs and feet begin to swell, apply L’Occitane Frisson Verbena Gel that will help to relieve the discomfort.

Stay equipped: Carry your heat wave essentials with you wherever you go! In addition to a bottle of water, the L’Occitane Verbena Kit, containing travel sized products containing organic Verbena of Provence and natural spring water, will be your best ally.
