Why, then, am I so sweaty and ugly all the time? Darn you, New York City weather!
In an effort to cope with some of the issues that plague what should be our most beautiful 3 months, allow me to share some tricks I employ to keep hideousness at bay:
1. Sunscreen, obviously. Love it, live for it.
2. Mattefying creme! I use Dermalogica clearing mattefier (additionally they have a whole page of "summer favorites" worth checking out!). It's wonderful with your regular moisturizer to keep sweat, grease and rampant acne at bay, help your make-up look fresh rather than slimy, and keep your make-up in place all day long. Which brings me to my next point....
3. Don't wear a lot of make-up. Just don't do it. It's hopeless, it will melt off, you will look worse, it is inevitable. Apply a few dots o' concealer where necessary, some bronzer, a touch of eyeliner if things are getting really fancy, and step away from the products.
|no make-up, no tan, no problem.|
|it's hot outside, don't brush your hair.|
6. Drink obscene amounts of water. Just absolutely ridiculous amounts. A guy friend I've run with for the American Cancer Society once so eloquently stated, "if you're not drinking enough water that your pee is clear, you're insane." INSANE! Take that.
