What's your trick for staying or looking cool in a host's home during the summer? Some don't have air conditioning, and I feel like I look icky. So, I was wondering if anyone wears a certain make up or clothing or had any advice for staying cool?

Would love to know this myself!
It's hot here in SC in the summer, and though I try to steer clear of the "heat the oven " shows... sometimes hosts insist... so I"m trying to make stir-fry show this summer... and chillzanne, etc.
I'm making stir-fry and either the lemon blueberry triffle, or cappuccino mousse triffle... in All The Best and Celebrate cookbooks... they are delicious and easy, and made in the chillzanne large bowl... which I love showing the chillzanne products in the summer..this way I can pass around the chillz. rect. server.

But I definitely pull my hair back in a tight ponytail...always even in winter..
and I wear capris (either khaki or black) and open toe sandle shoes.

ask the host to have the ceiling fan on or AC on good. With lots of people there, and the oven possibly on... and you are working like crazy! it makes it more enjoyable...but some people don't crank their AC...so we have to suffer ...
...maybe choosing simple quick recipes... and spend more time playing games, and passing products you aren't cooking with...this is less stressful, therefore your blood pressure is lower...so you're cooler.
... wash your hands a lot with cold water...?
I don't know... because I feel icky sometimes too! As I type, I am thinking...so it is just as much for me as it is for you!... I'm coming up with stuff as I type...
best of luck!

staying cool

Luckily since I live in Florida air conditioning is a must...still when the room is full of people and the lights are on etc. I do get hot. I usually wear capris, a white tshirt, my apron and sandals (again, pretty much the norm here). I agree that wearing your hair back is a must. Bring a personal fan if you need to and set it up behind you.

I always ask the host for a glass of ice water that I can drink during set-up and the show.

Way to Sell Kitchen Spritzer

Hi all,
I haven't done this yet this season, but last year I took a kitchen spritzer filled with COLD water and when I got hot, I'd say, how many of you Mom's sit in the stand watching those balls games and get HOT, well this will help, keep this in your little cooler with your water and when your feeling a little to hot, pull this out, pump it up and cool off!! I generally sell at least 2 or 3 at a show when I say this.

HTH,

Lisa

Baby Powder

One thing you can do is use baby powder. It helps keep the skin dry and can ultimately keep you feeling a little cooler. I always do this when I wear skirts, I rub some on my legs to keep them dry and from rubbing! I also loved to do this when I was pregnant no matter what I was wearing!!!
