Let's enjoy a sweat-free summer
Do you tend to get a little damp in embarrassing places as soon as the temperature begins to rise? Do you find yourself keeping your arms pinned down by your sides for fear of exposing two giant wet patches poking through your shirt?
Sounds like you tend to get a little sweaty, and hey – that’s okay! Luckily, we’ve got the solutions to ensure you don’t suffer in sweaty silence any longer – no matter which part of you tends to get the sweatiest when it shouldn’t…
SWEAT SPOT #1: UPPER LIP
Oh, the dreaded sweaty upper lip. It can be a massive issue for us women, especially when we’re wearing foundation! Why? Well each time you wipe your sweaty upper lip a little bit of make-up comes off with it - until you’re left with a Homer Simpson-looking ‘mo! To avoid this happening to you, carry blotting tissues in your purse. These tissues help to absorb any perspiration without disturbing your carefully applied make-up. We like Swisspers Blot-Off Oil Tissues as they help to leave your skin feeling clean and refreshed (and your make-up intact!)
SWEAT SPOT #2: UNDERARMS
If you tend to suffer from extensive perspiration as soon as you get even a little hot and bothered, you need an extra strength deodorant that can really protect you from excessive sweating. Dove Clinical Protection Anti-Perspirant Deodorant combines clinical strength wetness and odour protection with skin-caring ingredients to ensure your skin is taken care of. Want even more protection? Hollywood Fashion Secrets Garment Shields work like liners for your underarms. Simply apply them to your underarms when wearing a long-sleeved shirt and feel confident that you’ll stay free from wet patches.
SWEAT SPOT #3: FEET
Sweaty feet soon become smelly feet – and that can be very embarrassing, especially during the summer months. Arm yourself with a cooling spray that also manages to rid your feet of odour-causing bacteria, too. We like QV Feet Foot Sure because it delivers in the odour-banning stakes, and provides a cool shot of menthol, too. To try and banish the sweaty feeling before it hits, sprinkle a little Lush T for Toes into your shoes before and after wear to help soak up the perspiration and banish bad smells, too.
SWEAT SPOT #4: FACE
Make-up that has moved half way down your face is not a great look. Perspiration on your face means that all your hard in the make-up department doesn’t stand for much. It can be confidence crushing and very annoying, so it’s good to know there are a few products that can help your make-up to stay in place for longer. Invisible Zinc IZ™ Staying Powder is a translucent super-fine powder that can be applied over foundation to help keep it in place all day. If you’re after a solution that can stand up against smudges, water and tears then ModelCo BEAUTY FIX AIRBRUSH FACE should be added to your make-up routine. When sprayed, the fine mist gently lands on your face and works to ‘lock’ your make-up in place all day.
SWEAT SPOT #5: ‘DOWN THERE’
Do you ever start to feel an embarrassing wetness ‘down there’ on a hot day? Don’t worry, you’re not weird – it’s completely normal and it happens to more women than you’d think! The way to battle uncomfortable dampness down below is to arm yourself with a team of wetness-protecting, freshness-enhancing products you can trust. Start with a cleansing wash, like Apivita Intimate Gentle Cleansing Gel for Extra Protection. We love it because it delivers extra freshness during the hotter months. You can also prepare by applying a little Femfresh Talc-Free Powder to your downstairs area before heading out; it’ll help to protect against excess moisture and battle odour, too.
Vagisil Feminine Wipes are also a definite handbag staple if you’re after a refreshing pick-me-up on the go. Why? Well, they’re flushable and they provide a cleansing, freshening solution at any time of the day. And finally, if you’re in it for the long haul and are looking to minimise the discomfort caused by vaginal discharge, wetness and/or odour all day long, you’ll want to try CAREFREE® ACTI-FRESH® liners. These slim-fit liners have been designed with an ultra absorbent core to lock away wetness and odour, helping you feel clean, dry, and totally fresh.
