5 Sweat-Proof Beauty Essentials You Can Get From A Drugstore

The buzz of your bedroom AC might be temporarily drowning it out, but summer is officially in the air. The prospect of warm and long days replete with cool beverages along with the possibilities of a host of summery activities, is exciting for a lot of us. But to be entirely honest here, I'm more of a winter person, owing to one sole reason. Sweat. Endless, dripping, irritating sweat. 



My dislike for humidity and sweat is a bit more complicated than it simply being unpleasant or smelly, although that definitely plays a major role. As someone fond of putting on make-up and looking my best when I do step out, summer reintroduces a challenging problem. Which is to stop my make-up from running down my face and subsequently making me look like I just walked off the set of a poorly-shot gothic music video.


With that thought in mind, I could present you with a round-up of the best sweatproof make-up products available in the beauty market. But considering shopping for high-end beauty products might be a bit far-fetched at the moment, I'll give you an easy way out. So, instead, here's a list of 5 sweatproof summer beauty essentials, that you can get from a drugstore near you.
