Keep your closet fashionably cool
According to Glam Radar, showing some skin this summer is not the only way to beat the heat.
So, instead of using the summer heat as an excuse to wear that over-sized t-shirt and flops every day – see it as an opportunity to incorporate colour, and light-weight fabrics into your wardrobe.
Spritz your face
Keeping your makeup looking fresh throughout the day is one of the biggest beauty battles that we face in the heat, but with makeup setting sprays, you can keep your face-beat from melting off.
If that's not your deal, why not skip the base every now and again? The natural look is hot, hot, hot at the moment!

Keep those brows on fleek
To keep those beautifully sculpted and filled eyebrow looking great all day, opt for a brow pencil that contains wax so that it won’t rub off.
We would recommend the Inglot wax brow pencil which costs R 199 or the L.A. Brow kit with wax.

Liquid proof everything
Use liquid-proof eyeliner and mascara. It won’t smudge as easily and you won’t have to worry about the raccoon eyes you get wit non-gel based eyeliners and mascaras.
But removing it can be a hassle, so make sure you also invest in proper eye makeup remover so that you don't have to rub the sensitive eye area too much.
Avoid hitting the bar
Whether it’s frozen mojitos by the pool or a few cold beers after work, those alcoholic beverages (that may seem perfect to beat the heat) may just be making it worse.
According to Perspectives- “Hot weather and alcohol decrease the body’s ability to regulate its own temperature,” and “This can cause heat cramps, heat exhaustion, and heat stroke, which can be very dangerous without proper medical care.”
And it will have a negative effect on your skin and overall dewiness.
