Sure you've got your grooming routine down pat: You work your makeup, hair and voila!—you’re good to go. But the day can be long and those ahem, unmentionable beauty bloopers like sweat stains and ugly bruises, can blow your beautiful look up in a matter of seconds. Luckily, we've got a few beauty hacks that will keep up your gorgeous appearance:
A Drier Idea: Excessive sweating is never pretty. If you’re noticing stains despite a daily dose of deodorant, then it’s time to up the ante. Apply antiperspirant at night, right before you put on your pjs. The active ingredients will absorb better while you’re sleeping (they plug up the ducts that sweat passes through) and give you more protection during the day. In the morning, swipe on two more coats to ensure you’re stay dry all day.
Bra Trick: Yes, boob sweat is embarrassing and annoying, but it happens to the best of us. To keep that band area dry, swipe a clear anti-perspirant underneath your breasts before you put on your bra. If it’s a constant problem, consider switching your bra to one made with cotton, which allows skin to breathe and absorbs moisture better than a synthetic.
Bruise 911: Oops, you hit a corner, and now that nasty purple bruise is ruining your golden glow. To keep it under cover, ice the area as soon as you feel the pain to prevent it swelling up. Hide it with a peachy-hued concealor, which will neutralize the blueish tint.
No More Bumps: Yikes, you want to go sleeveless, but you can’t with all those nasty bumps, aka “chicken skin”. Since it’s caused by a build up of excessive skin cells around the hair follicles, exfoliating regularly will give you a smoother, softer appearance. Slough them off with a glycolic acid scrub during your daily shower.
There you have it! Now go out and start living your life easier!
