Are you sweating right now against your own will? Don’t worry, you’re absolutely not alone. Summer is a beautiful season chock full of popsicles and lawn concerts, but that also means it’s the season of sweating. Luckily for us sweaty Bettys, there are plenty of cooling beauty products created with the sole intention of giving us a break from drenching ourselves in sweat.
Now we can go out and celebrate the Fourth of July or get drunk and crash our co-worker’s trendy summer wedding without sweating out our life. It should be noted that sweating is healthy and good for our bodies, and nothing to be ashamed of.
However, none of us want to live in our own sweat, especially when we’re out and about, flirting with the world.
