Heat Faves

You're looking really slick lately.

No, really, you look so hot.

You're more than just "glowing" and your makeup is almost at meltdown. No sweat. Stay cool, dry and shine-free with these beauty solutions.

Lei ChicDon't Sweat It
Sweatproof your underarms, hands, feet, face, or anywhere else with DermaDoctor Med e Tate antiperspirant wipes. The dampened cloths are said to mimic the effects of Botox shots by chemically blocking sweat glands to keep you completely dry. And there's no white residue on your clothes. At Sephora stores at Ala Moana Center and Pearlridge.



Lei ChicLet Us Spray
You've wondered it before: Why isn't there a "hairspray" for makeup to seal and hold it? Model in a Bottle is a polymer mist that sets and holds foundation, blush and eye makeup for up to eight hours. At Merle Norman, Ward Warehouse.

Lei Chic Dry And Mighty
Too hot for greasy body lotion that you’ll sweat off anyway? Lush Silky Underwear Dusting Powder works as a moisturizer, as well as a heavy-duty moisture absorber. Put it on before you head to the gym to prevent wet clothes and B.O. At LUSH stores, Ala Moana Center and Royal Hawaiian Center.


Lei ChicBreath of Fresh Hair
Heat and humidity don't just do a number on your makeup. Your hair is limp and wilted too. Brush some Fekkai Au Natural Dry Shampoo through your roots to soak up oil and add fluff and volume for that just-blow-dried look. At Sephora stores at Ala Moana Center and Pearlridge.

Lei ChicSmooth Operator
Your face is your canvas, and just like an artist, you've got to properly prep for painting. Smashbox Photo Finish Light Foundation Primer is a silicone-based gel that smooths out pores and fine lines and creates a sweat and oil barrier under your makeup. At Nordstrom and Sephora.

Lei Chic

More Powder to You
Daily moisturizers with high SPF are often tacky and a little goopy. But you're not willing to risk wrinkles and brown spots that come with sun exposure. Powder sunscreen, like Bare Minerals Natural Sunscreen SPF 30, keeps you protected and shine free. At Bare Escentuals store, Ala Moana Center.
