We all know living in a hog, humid place like New York City can be treacherous. You step outside, your hair either falls flat or frizzes away, and you instantly start to break out into a sweat as if you just ran the marathon—without even trying. Trust us, we know how frustrating that can be. But instead of running away and hiding in cool places this summer, we found some products to help tame that sweat any day of the week.
You just spent a long day out in the city and have an event to get to in the PM, but don’t have time to run home and take a shower. You feel very sticky from the humidity and just want to freshen up. Thankfully, Power Shower from Sweat WELLth will help you do just the trick. The antimicrobials kick dirt, sweat, and oil to the curb while hydrating skin with coconut oil. Leaving your skin feeling soft, supple, and moisturized.
Say No to Boob Sweat
This can be the most uncomfortable thing ever. For all our big boob ladies, it’s hard to keep them fresh and clean. Boob sweat tends to seep through shirts and stains before you even walk into the office and that’s a big no-no. This “bust dust” will help keep your ladies dry and ready to take on the day. It’s made with 100 percent natural powder bacteria-fighting lavender and chamomile scent to keep all the unwanted crap away.
Matte That Shine
While every other part of your body probably needs a little lovin’ when it comes to sweat, your makeup on your face won’t stay in place if your sweat game is coming on strong. To combat this, brush on this 100% Mineral Invincible Setting Powder from Supergoop! to make sure your makeup stays put and reduces shine. It’s refillable, portable and small, so you basically have no excuse not to bring it with you everywhere you go.
That’s the Pits
Exactly as mentioned above, it’s the pits when your pits are not clean and fresh. With dozens of natural deodorants on the market, it can be intimidating to dabble into this world without wondering if, by the end of the day, you’re actually going to smell and feel like a field of roses or a New York garbage truck.
Luckily, Ursa Major came out with this 100 percent natural deodorant that’s made with peppermint and eucalyptus to give your underarms a cooling effect that they deserve and will love. Kaolin clay will magically absorb all the moisture and sweat while the hops and baking soda will neutralize the odors. This one is a crowd pleasure across the Internet, so trust when we say this one should do the trick.
Blot and Toss
Nothing is worse than going from work, looking like you just did a workout at Barry’s Bootcamp without having the tools to do a quick touch-up before you head to happy hour. While you could try to carefully pat the sweat away with a crumpled-up napkin that you luckily found in your purse, Too Cool For School has a portal blotting paper carrying case that will get rid of your sweat without messing up your makeup.
Even though we could easily have all three products in our bags, the mattifying charcoal blotting papers are a clear winner for us. These guys are made from Chinese yam paper that is made from soothing green tea leaves to leave your skin smooth and sweat-free. Oh, did we mention that this little guy also comes with a mirror, too? This product is a summer must-have that will literally change your life.
Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff
Most hot days will make us forgo styling our hair by simply putting it up in a top bun and calling it a day. Even though you probably already have a mini aerosol dry shampoo can in your purse to keep your hair lookin’ cute, for the summer, you may want to switch it to a powder version to combat that extra sweat.
For instance, Bumble and bumble.’s Prêt-à-powder will quickly absorb all oil and sweat. It’s formulated with natural starches and Montmorillonite clay to add volume and texture to your roots without leaving a white residue. Basically, this little product will refresh, revive and cleanse your hair, no matter how dirty your hair is.
