Connecting Fashion Around The World
Summer and early autumn might be the most beautiful time of year, but it can wreak havoc on our hair and makeup. In fact, this time of year can be the worst for our beauty routines, as surprise heat waves can lead to our carefully applied makeup running down our necks.
If you want to guarantee that you look as flawless at the end of the day as you did when you left the house, keep reading. Here’s how to sweat-proof your beauty routine.
If you wake up sweaty and overheated, you’re likely to be a bit oilier throughout the day, even if you shower. Prevent this from occurring by taking the right steps at night. First and foremost, apply deodorant before you go to bed. This will keep you cool and dry, which will ensure that you’re fresher the next day. Second, be sure to sleep in an air conditioned room. Not only will this keep you cool, but experts say it’s actually great for helping you to fall asleep faster.
Even those of us with dry or fine hair can start to feel a little oily when the weather’s hot. However, shampooing your hair every single day can be extremely damaging and lead to split ends and dryness. Instead of washing and blow-drying every time you feel a bit oily at the roots, invest in a great dry shampoo. Dry shampoo allows you to rid yourself of any greasiness at the root of the hair without having to hop in the shower.
If your makeup doesn’t stay where you want it to, then chances are that you’re not priming and powdering. Priming refers to using a primer before you apply foundation or BB cream. Primer doesn’t just zap any oiliness, but also works to create a bond between your foundation and your skin, ensuring that it stays in place longer. As for powder, it should be lightly dusted on after you’ve applied foundation. You don’t need a super-heavy powder that’s going to sit uncomfortably atop the skin. Instead, look for a finely milled translucent powder that will prevent shine without feeling too heavy.
If you follow these tips, you can ensure that your hair and makeup stay in place no matter how hot it gets. Just because the temperature’s rising doesn’t mean that you can’t have a killer, sweat-proof beauty routine.
