It's hot outside and that naturally means battling some icky stuff, which is why you need these summer beauty hacks. When you get sweaty, flaky, stinky or sunburned, you need a quick remedy so you feel better and prevent embarrassment. Don't worry. We've all been there, but adding these summer beauty hacks to your life will cut down on the chances of it being you this time. Thanks to MSN and their cache of information for sharing these wonderful and really useful tips with us this summer.
Prevent sweat wrecking your fringe or down-do by applying some roll-on deodorant to your hairline (the soap-looking bar kind works best). You can also prevent your hair getting ridiculously sweaty while using a hairdryer by applying a swipe of deodorant to the back of your neck. Genius.
The Listerine foot soak is the pedicure hack taking the web by storm at the moment. Simply mix equal parts Listerine, vinegar and water, soak for 15 minutes and be amazed by your ridiculously soft new feet.
Invest in some tight shorts - they'll prevent chub-to-chub contact so rubbing won't be an issue. Lush Silky Underwear Powder is also a luxe version of talc and works like a charm if you're concerned your crotch might overheat in shorts.
If there's one thing we know for sure about your gorge new summer sandals, it's that your joy will quickly be ruined by a horrible blister. Apply Vaseline to blister-prone areas and you'll stop the blighters right in their tracks.
Drinking loads of water will dilute your natural scent, so even if you're still sweating it out, at least you won't be kicking out a pong.
We know it's annoying, but avoid those telltale dark stains on your light clothes by spraying sweat marks with lemon juice before chucking in the washing machine.
Get the smoothest shave possible with the help of deodorant and er, alcohol.
Stranded without serum? A small amount of hand cream smoothed through your hair will treat your frazzled summer frizz.
There's nothing worse than static mucking up your summer locks. A quick rub with a tumble dryer sheet will instantly return your hair to normal - and will make it smell dreamy, too.
Had an SPF fail? Apply aloe vera gel to your sunburn to prevent the skin peeling off and help it heal much quicker. Keep some aloe gel in the fridge for ridiculous cooling relief.
A swipe of deodorant to the underboob region should do the trick, but if that's too basic for you, simply deploy some pantyliners to the inside of your bra. YES, really.
Applying talcum powder to your sandy bits makes the sand dust straight off. Don't ever pack your beach bag without it again.
If you mess up your fake tan application, head to the kitchen cupboard and make a paste out of baking soda and lemon juice. Rub it on and watch unsightly streaks fade before your very eyes.
To repel bugs, rub a tumble dryer sheet all over your clothes - the scent will keep the mosquitoes at bay.
