I’ve been having quite the love-hate relationship with Manila summers these past few years—beach getaways and sexy, balmy nights notwithstanding, the extreme weather has been a challenge for fair-skinned beauty girls like me. Near-40-degree temps are welcome when you’re laying out on the sand with an umbrella cocktail, in a sun-drenched haze (with SPF 130!), but when you’re stuck in the grimy, sweltering city, it’s a whole other ballgame… one that needs an armory of freshening products, UV protection, and light-wearing everything to withstand the heat.
