The weather doesn’t need to be hot for you to be sweaty. Certain situations, like a job interview or a presenting a paper at school, can make you nervous enough to sweat. Fortunately, you can stay looking cool throughout the day with these five makeup tips.
Wear the Right Primer
To help ensure that your makeup stays intact even when you’re nervous, or it’s warm outside, you need to start with the right primer. To choose the right one, first, consider your skin type.
If you have dry skin, look for one that hydrates. For oily skin, you need a mattifying primer and if your skin is sensitive, look for a primer without oils, fragrances or parabens in it. Also, get one that has the same base as the foundation, either water-based or oil-based.
Put on Mattifying Sunscreen
Dermatologists suggest wearing sunscreen that’s at least SPF 30 every day to protect your skin. However, thicker sunscreens can break down makeup. Instead, choose one that is lightweight and mattifying that you can layer beneath your other makeup.
Consider Medical Intervention
If you sweat excessively, even when it’s cool out, then you may need to see a doctor for treatments. If he or she recommends getting botulinum toxin A injections for the problem, you can get Botox for hyperhidrosis in LA at many medical spas.
By helping to reduce sweating, not only will your makeup stay put, but you won’t need to worry about someone seeing embarrassing armpit stains on your clothes. Plus, you won’t need to wear dark colors all the time to hide their evidence.
Use the Right Tools
If you’re someone who has oily skin, then the heat probably isn’t the only problem with your makeup. Using the wrong makeup tools could be a problem too. Instead of using brushes to apply powder, use velour sponges or pads as they put down a nice layer. Here are some tips for cleaning beauty blenders and sponges.
Also, look for a powder base with starch or talc to help control the oil. By being conscious of your skin’s problem, you can help combat it and stay looking fresh for longer.
Keep Blotting Paper Handy
Whether you work under hot lights or have a sweating issue, your makeup can become shiny during the day. To prevent the shiny look, keep blotting papers on hand to take care of it.
You can use commercial sheets or use everyday items like a single layer of tissue or a toilet seat cover in a pinch. Any single layer thin paper should work well to remove excess oil or sweat from your face to prevent runny makeup.
Remember, carefully blot your skin, don’t rub it or your makeup will come off.
There are other ways to keep your makeup looking its best all day, no matter how nervous or sweaty you get due to the heat or humidity. Staying calm in nerve-wracking situations can help as well, so close your eyes and breath deeply before taking on a task that makes you nervous.
These five tips can help you look your best no matter what is going on and how it affects you.
