Yes, we’ve survived another week mamas and that means two things around here; a glass of wine and Fashion Fridays. This week, I wanted to share not just outfit inspiration for the weekend but also a solution to a common summer fashion problem.
There are two things that go hand in hand during the summer, sandals and sweat. The combination isn’t pretty and if you have overactive sweat glands on the soles of your feet like I do, then you understand the struggle. After wasting money on a bunch of useless products, I’ve found two inexpensive solutions to this annoying and uncomfortable problem and I wanted to share them with you:
1. Tom’s of Maine antiperspirant deodorant
Yup, it’s that simple. Right out of the shower, pat your feet dry and add some of this deodorant. Now using my underarm deodorant under my feet doesn’t appeal to me so I purchased a separate one for this purpose. I found that this was effective in preventing my feet from sweating for up to five hours. Now, I’ve tried other deodorant brands with no success and you must ensure that you use an antiperspirant if you’re going to try another brand. This is the preventative approach.
2. Poise Body Cooling Towelette
Now, if you’re already out and about and your feet are slipping around in your sandals. Your solution will come in the form of a Poise Body Cooling Towelette. You read that correctly, I know the poise brand isn’t very glamorous but a girl’s got to do what she needs to do. So head to the bathroom, remove your sandals and wipe your feet with these towelettes and you should notice about 80% reduction in sweat (Give it about half hour to kick in). I found this approach to not be as effective as using the deodorant but it’s a great alternative especially if you’re already on the go or out for a long period of time.
Now that sweaty problem is solved, let’s get into this week’s outfit details.
