A perfect 10 of natural skincare products to tackle the summer

Beat the heat with the natural goodness of these skin and haircare products.

Hot weather can raise temperatures for all the wrong reasons. And make you hot under the collar in more ways than one. Yes, the dog days of summer are here, when intense heat and humidity make it impossible to sit comfortably, let alone sleep through the night.
