Stay Refreshed And Sweat-Free When The Temperature's On The Up And Up

When it's hot outside, all I want to do is stay in my air-conditioned apartment watching bad movies and eating ice cream. Alas, the real world does not allow for such luxuries and I am forced to be out in the humid weather like every other contributing member of society. So how do I bear it? How do I keep cool, refreshed, and sweat-free when the temperature comes dangerously close to triple digits (or at least feels that way)?  Well, first of all, I start with a deodorant that I know won't fail me.

Certain Dri Anti-Perspirant ($6) and A.M. Deodorant ($6) keep perspiration and odor at bay like no other product on the market. Applied first, the ant-perspirant dries up all underarm moisture (I'll be honest, it stings a bit, but it's well worth the temporary pain) and keeps you completely dry all day long. Because the roll-on contains no fragrance, be sure to follow with the A.M. deodorant to keep smelling fresh. As a former excessive sweater, this product now allows me to even sport silks during hot months.  Believe me, it works.

I loathe wearing makeup in warm weather. And I hate applying it even more. Unless my air conditioner is aimed directly at my face on high, any foundation or concealer will just drip right off. But not if I use Revlon's Colorstay Active Sweat-Proof Light Makeup ($12). This foundation glides on effortlessly, and since it's sweat-proof, stays put even as the beads of perspiration oh-so-attractively form on my face.

Before I head out the door, I throw a travel-size can of Evian Mineral Water Spray ($5.60) into my bag. I guess a two-dollar plastic spray bottle from the drug store filled with tap water would do the trick, but this just seems so much more glamorous. And this can lets out just enough mist to keep you cool without drenching your clothes, makeup, or hair.

Don't embarrass yourself (or offend those around you) with stinky, sweaty feet. Slip a pair of Summer Soles ($7.95) into the bottoms of your sandals to absorb excess moisture and keep your feet dry and happy. They come in fun animal prints too, so everyone will assume they're just a part of the shoe.
