Hey ladies, have you noticed that it’s hot outside? Like, seriously, never before felt, searing, record-breaking temperatures kind of hot!? When you have nothing to do but sit by a pool or on the beach all day long, this kind of weather is absolutely perfect, but it can cause big problems when you are actually trying to live your normal day to day life in ridiculous heat! One of the key issues is sweating. It never makes for a good look and it only gets worse as the day goes on. Don’t worry, though, I have some answers! Here is how to never look sweaty even in this crazy hot summer!
1. Using Deodorant Correctly
There is actually a right and wrong time of the day to apply deodorant, did you know that? It’s more effective to apply the product at night before you go to bed, the reason being that the antiperspirant works best getting into your pores to prevent future sweating when your skin is at its driest. It doesn’t help when you are already sweaty in the morning.
2. Prevent Chafing
To avoid the risk of painful and annoying chafing, you can actually spray deodorant directly on to the area of your inner thighs that rub together. The antiperspirant will help with friction and the less you sweat down there, the less irritation there will be.
3. Clothing Choices
Steer well clear of fabrics like acrylic and polyester that have no breathability in them, and instead stick to lightweight choices like cotton. The freer your body feels in the materials it is wearing, the less likely you are going to be to sweat. And also, stick to darker colours to avoid any sweat patches from becoming visible!
4. Minimal Makeup
Try to be as light-handed and minimalistic as you can when it comes to summer makeup. The most product you have on your face, the hotter you are going to feel, and the more sun is going to be able to mess with your face. Nobody wants to have to experience running makeup out in public!
5. Blotting Papers
Blotting papers are an essential handbag accessory at times like this. Whenever you feel like your face in particular is getting a bit moist and shiny, just grab a paper and dab away to rid yourself of the sweat. It eliminates the problem in record time!
