Summers are extremely hot and humid. We all feel bad when the sweat streaming down your forehead every time. We spend hours on makeup every morning and it fades away as soon as we step out in the sun. The smell of the clothes, feet after a hectic day Ughhhhhh......
So the big question here is how do you stay fresh all day?
If its freshness that you are craving for then it actually comes from within. No Creams lotions or makeup will help you to stay fresh all day.
But here some couple of tips to stay fresh all-day
SHOWER IN THE MORNING
Shower every morning to freshen up and pay attention to the areas where grime accumulates like neck and skin folds. Use Scrub to clean these areas. Avoid soap as they usually take the moisture out of the body. Body wash will be a better choice. Exfoliate your skin twice a week using a loofah, body brush or scrub (all three are available in most stores that sell beauty products). This will get rid of dead skin cells and expose the soft shiny skin underneath, making you feel rejuvenated. For face use a face scrub.
BE READY ALWAYS
Preparation for tomorrow begins with today. Always be prepared for the upcoming day beforehand. List all things you have to do. Minimize the use of heavy makeup. Mix a few drops of sunscreen with a water-based foundation. Use waterproof eyeliner and mascara. Protect lips with moisture-rich lipstick that has an SPF (Sun protection factor) of at least 15
FRESHEN UP YOUR HAIR
Wash your hair at least twice a week with a mild shampoo and condition it regularly. If you don't have time to wash your hair, use dry shampoo. Apply after-wash combing lotions when it is partly dry. Products like Livon, Silk-n-shine, serums all do the same thing -- form a protective coat over your hair so it can stay clean and soft longer.
Dab in the key areas like your neck, wrist, under your arms. You can even get a roll-on deo as they are easy to use. If you a lot try antiperspirant combination deo. Antiperspirant Deo helps in reducing sweating. Additionally, a dash of perfume on the wrist and neck is good to go.
STASH YOUR PURSE
Always have basic amenities stashed in your purses like a deo stick or small travel pack perfume, Chewing gums to keep the mouth fresh, face sprays, face wash, compact, lip balm, mini-sized versions of your foundation, moisturizer, lipstick and mascara in your purse. Men can replace the makeup kit with hair gel and a comb. If you are always on run, stashing your purse will be a big help on hectic days
Always hydrate yourself. You should always drink at least 8 glass of water. You can even prepare your water by putting mint leaves, thin slices of lemon or orange, crushed ice. You can put it in a mason jar or bottles and carry it with you Drinking flavoured water might entice you to consume more of it. It will make your bowel movement regular. It freshens the breath too.
FACIAL MIST SPRAYS
Mist sprays provide hydration to the skin which can last all day. A light spray can revive your tired face or refresh your makeup after your long flight or tiring day. These products work best when sprayed, blotted and locked in with a moisturizer.
TAKE CARE OF YOUR FEET
Got a smelly Feet? Clean your feet daily, dry them and use an antifungal powder. Wear clean socks and keep your feet aerated by wearing open shoes. Try to do a pedicure every week to maintain your nails and avoid cracked heels.
KEEP YOUR BREATH FRESH
Always clean your mouth. If you have a bad odour it will be embarrassing for you and the people around you with whom you interact. Pop in mouth freshener or mint chewing gums to fight the bad odour.
