I cannot believe we are in the home stretch before summer break begins! The countdown to the last day of school is on, and we are getting ready to enjoy all of that sunshine and glorious humidity that has already made its way to Houston.
With that heat and humidity comes lots of sweat. It is absolutely miserable here in the dead heat of summer! Walking outside can ruin whatever hairstyle or makeup look you did, if you’re not careful. When summer rolls around, I start to change up my beauty routine to products that perform well against the climate. So let’s talk about some sweat proof beauty tips to get you through the summer!
Use a makeup primer
Different primers do different things, but it essentially helps your foundation go on smoother, and some even help keep the foundation in place longer. Look for primers that claim to be mattifying – those are usually the ones that help the makeup stick around longer.
Waterproof mascara is your friend
Summer is definitely the time I start wearing waterproof mascara more often. It just stays put and it also holds a curl to my lashes much better. If you have difficulty removing it, try using extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, or a cleansing water to take it off.
Matte liquid lipsticks are kiss and sweat proof
Liquid lipsticks have been all the rage in the beauty industry. They go on as a liquid, apply almost like a gloss, but set to a matte finish and stay put on the lips. This kind of lip product is absolutely perfect for summer because it will stay put throughout the day. Choose a bold color and you’re screaming summer even more!
Apply dry shampoo at night and sleep with your hair up
I don’t know about you, but my scalp gets very oily during the summer. But, this is such a great tip I learned! If you apply dry shampoo at night and sleep with your hair up in a messy bun, it will look and feel refreshed in the morning!
A setting spray will keep your makeup locked and loaded
Setting spray is an absolute necessity for me in hotter months. It acts almost like a hairspray for your face, keeping everything you did in place. I also like to apply it in layers as I do my makeup! First before I start my foundation, after foundation and concealer, and as a final step. That may sound a bit excessive but I’m telling you – my makeup lasts much longer!
The most important step for confidence – Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant keeps you dry
It is important for me to upgrade my antiperspirant along with my other beauty items. I recently had the opportunity to partner with Dove and try the new Advanced Care Antiperspirant. Needless to say, I am hooked! Even the coconut scent is perfect for summer. Not only does it have 48-hour odor and wetness protection, it has skincare benefits. NutriumMoisture leaves your underarms feeling soft, which is a must with sleeveless garments and more skin exposed during the summer.
Having the right deodorant is an essential for feeling confident, whether it’s summer or not. Dove shared this infographic. While I do love my makeup, I happen to agree! I can have a no makeup day, but there’s no way I’m having a no deodorant day!
One other statistic is that when women forget to put deodorant on, 49% of them go back home. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve actually done that! I’ve even stopped to get something if there’s no way to go home. So, friends, it’s time to upgrade your beauty essentials and upgrade your deodorant.
May your summer and beauty routine be sweat proof!
