The ultimate sweaty girl style guide to help you perspire in peace
If you’re like me and tend to glisten like a holiday ham no matter what you do, your best bet is to continue reading this.
Sweating is serious business and controlling it is major key to maintain your looks as well as sanity. Although summer maybe ending (sigh), our sweat will accompany us throughout all seasons. I know I’m not the only one who longs for the day that I can maintain a full face of makeup throughout those hot ass subway transits. Yet, I know better than that and until my body decides to get with the program Uber and I will be BFF’s on those occasions.
I found that some style guides specifically for us perspiring princesses are just not getting it. I’m sorry but staying hydrated and using chafing creams is mediocre af, although it does help a little. So I took the time to create one for you’ll so keep swea— scrolling.
Tone Down The Sweat
Toning your skin can save you time on your facial routine while removing makeup, dirt, and oil! It’s better than a primer because you don’t have to pile extra products on your face and you don’t run the risk of having a weird residue left over. Plus, it shrinks your pores and gets rid of redness/swelling. Pretty much amazing.
Bye Bye Chafing Cream, Hello Baby Powder
Creams can be your worst enemy if you sweat hella. Think of it like having lotion on your skin on a scorching hot day — you eventually transform into a sticky oil slick. This one is specifically formulated to gently soak up access moisture (a.k.a. thigh/boob sweat) while keeping you dry and smooth asf.
Yep, it’s a thing! This towel comes in handy especially while getting ready to go out or even breast feeding. Hopping out a hot shower, your tits are going to be covered in more than water, so look into it.
Cushion For The Pushing
Blotting tissues are NEVER enough. No matter what brand, I run through those things like paper towels in a public restroom. This beauty blender-like sponge allows you to remove oil/sweat and blend out those dreadful concealer creases. Each piece lasts up to three months so that totals out to a year of beat face on-the-go!
Deodorize Those Bologna Stains
This roll-on stick is the most effective antiperspirant you can get without a prescription. Containing 12% aluminum chloride, the company states that alone, ” is the #1 doctor recommended active ingredient for excessive sweating”. For only $6.99 it’s worth a try unless you want to continue to smell like shower fresh sweat.
Hidden In The Mist
As I mentioned before, piling on products and creams is a no-no! But, if you must use a primer try a mist instead. Many double as a base anyways so it’s like a 2-for-1 deal. This one specifically drys fast, prevents sweat from coming through makeup, and rubbing off on clothes. The brand is popular for costume makeup, so yes you can try all of your festival looks with no worries.
