We had a saying in North Carolina where I went to college: It’s as hot as a stuck pig. I never quite got the analogy but today, on the short trek from the office to my car in the sweltering afternoon heat, I was overcome with the feeling of roasting on a red hot spit. Maybe that’s what they meant. It’s days like this that you need a tingly, cooling body treat waiting at home to bring down your body temp. And the Refresh-Mint body duo from LATHER does the trick. The Mint Thyme Body Wash invigorates and cools simultaneously with essential oils of mint, peppermint and thyme. The Peppermint Skin Polish with Jojoba Beads lifts away dead, tired skin while delivering a burst of nourishing botanicals. Both leave your skin with a lingering hint of mint to remind you of the cooler days to come. Don’t believe me? Head on down to the LATHER store at Kierland Commons in Scottsdale for their Beat the Heat Refresh-Mint Open House on Saturday, July 14 and you too can experience this singular cooling sensation. The refreshing event is from 4 to 7 p.m. and features Refresh-Mint Mojitos from Martini Ranch and a 15% discount on all LATHER products. RSVP at (480) 483-6633. Photo: New Refresh-Mint Gift Set, $32.
