While standing in front of the A/C all summer seems like a safe plan, it doesn’t sound like any fun. Summer is meant to be celebrated outdoors. Unless, of course, you’re sweating through your shirt (and makeup) within minutes. But that isn’t stopping us from having a blast, because these tricks will have us staying cool and sweating less — even when it’s as hot as ten thousand suns out there!
1. Choose an Excellent Antiperspirant, Not Deodorant: Whiledeodorant is meant to cover up the smell of sweat, an antiperspirant will actually help curb moisture. Kiehl’s Superbly Efficient Anti-Perspirant and Deodorant reduces underarm perspiration for 24-hour protection by using micro-sized drying molecules that leave skin feeling soft, smooth — and most importantly — free of sweat and odor.
2. Loose Clothes to the Rescue: Loose, flowing clothes will keep you much cooler than, say, a tight tank and daisy dukes!Opt in for flowing fabric that won’t cling to skin and make you feel sweaty and sticky.Also, stay away from synthetic fibers like polyesterand go for breathable cotton instead!
3. Bring the Shade WITH You: If there isn’t a tree to hang out under,bring the shade to you in the form of a wide-brimmed hat, headscarf, or even handheld sun umbrella because keeping cool will help you keep dry!
