Who doesn’t love summer? Besides all the sweat, heat, and utter grossness, it’s how you combat those nuisances that make it an enjoyable season.
Instead of spending hours at the bathroom counter reapplying makeup, there are easier ways to make sure you look on-point. Same goes for keeping your frizz tamed and the sweat to a minimum.
Tempted to learn all of these beauty hacks? We’ll go over a few that’ll have you loving the warmer season more.

Let’s get into it!
Possibly the number one problem (besides sweat) most summer-loving folks have is frizzy hair. The humidity takes a toll on our locks, leaving behind tangles and frizz.
To combat against flyaways, grab an old toothbrush. Spritz some hairspray on it and comb your hairline with it. Say good to unruly hair!
Prevent Hair from Sticking
After a long day of hiking or seeing the sights, sweat accumulates on the back of your neck. That’s the gross, icky feeling you get from your hair sticking to your wet neck.
To prevent that from happening again, use deodorant on the back of your neck. The ingredients allow for you to stop sweating so your hair will no longer stick.
Avoid Shattered Products
Traveling this summer? We all know the feeling of opening our suitcase only to find our favourite eyeshadow palette or foundation crushed into pieces.
To avoid this in the future, place a cotton pad inside of the compacts. It’ll absorb pressure placed on your products.
Can’t find your self-tanning spray or don’t have the time to run to the store? Adding a dash of copper powder or bronzer to your moisturizer will give you an instant glow.
Powdered foundations can cause creases and fine lines to appear in the summer heat. Instead of opting for powders, trade them in for BB creams.
A BB cream is a tinted moisturizer, you get the coverage you want all while being good to your skin.
No Yellow Stains
We shouldn’t exclude the colour white from our wardrobe this summer. For an easy beauty hack, squirt lemon juice on your light-coloured clothing before throwing them in the washer.
Quick Sunburn Treatment
Forgot the SPF? Don’t worry as it doesn’t take much to heal a sunburn quicker than riding it out.
Grab some aloe vera gel and apply it to the affected areas. It works like a charm to prevent peeling and pain.
If you’re traveling to where the air is dry, static may arise. That spells bad news especially if you just got your hair cut.
To save you some trouble, rub a dryer sheet throughout your tresses. It’ll tame the static while making you smell fresh.
Streaky Fake Tan
Made a mistake while applying your self-tanning lotion? Those streaks make for an eyesore.
To correct them, mix together baking soda and lemon juice. It’ll form a paste you then can then apply to your messed up areas.
