    After a winter of arctic temps, we can't exactly complain when we start to feel the warmth. Still, the sticky-ickiness of a humid Chicago summer can be tough to handle. Case in point: that beauty routine you've perfected turns to disaster the second you leave the air conditioning.

    To survive the melting season, we enlisted local expert Nicole Pearl. You know her better as The Beauty Girl, a Chicago cosmetics guru and blogger who's on a mission to make your get-gorgeous routine easy and fun (as it should be). We tapped Nicole to shine a spotlight on lightweight beauty essentials that will keep you looking flawless all season long, no matter how intense the heat and humidity may get.

Turns out you can shed a little weight without hitting the gym.
