  • Purchase clothing which are made up of cotton or linen. These are natural fabrics and so would allow air to pass through, keeping your skin and cloth dry even if you perspire due to the intense heat.
  • Go for light colored dresses, shoes and even accessories.  Dark colors absorb heat while light colors will just reflect the heat.
  • If you are fond of layering, go for it. You can wear a tank top inside and put on a loose buttoned shirt over that. When you are outside, and the temperature gets high, you may remove the first layer and be comfy in the tank top. Again when you get inside, in an air-conditioned room, you can put on the shirt.
  • Carry umbrella wherever possible. It protects the skin from UV Rays of the sun. You can also get small umbrellas which would fit inside purse or pockets even.
  • To provide further protection to your skin, go for clothes which has sunscreen in the fabric. You can also do it yourself by adding a packet of UV protection while you wash the clothes.
  • Clothes made from moisture-wicking fabrics are best for summer times. These type of fabrics will draw the unnecessary moisture away from your body and keep the skin dry. Thus it would avoid any kind of perspiration marks or stains on your clothes.

Quick Anti-Aging Fixes

Primer – After applying a moisturizer, put on a thin layer of hydrating primer for face all over. The primer wont let the moisturizer to vapourize soon, thus making the skin look dewy for longer time.

Peel for sensitive skin – Whether you have sensitive skin, or anyother skin type, go for a peel which is suitable for sensitive skin. Home-made peels make the skin look more even. However, skin peels can make the skin irritated and red, and therefore peels for sensitive skin are better as they would just brighten the skin and wont irritate the skin.

Eye mask – Using eye masks will reduce any puffiness or bags around the eyes and conceal the wrinkles which can be the result of dryness.

Water mist for face – Spritzing facial water mist on the face after you have used foundation is a good way to pamper your skin. So after you have used the water mist, just use a dry makeup sponge over the wrinkles and blend the foundation all over your face with the help of the water mist, which wont let the foundation settle in between the fine lines and wrinkles.

Exercise – If exercising is not possible to be done by you everyday, just put your head in between the knees for a few minutes. When you sit back, you will find your face to be red as well as plumpy. The redness will go away in a few minutes but then the glow will stay for sometime.

How to conceal dropping saggy eyelids

Dropping eyelids is another sign of ageing, but in order to conceal it there is no need of undergoing any surgery. Instead of spending thousands of bucks on expensive eyelift surgeries, you can go for some simple tricks that is really free of cost to try. So, to conceal droppy eyelids, here are some tricks.

No mascara on bottom eyelashes – Never apply mascara on your bottom eyelashes. Just curl the upper eyelashes and apply a few coats of a mascara, a thickening one preferably. If you curl your lashes, that instantly pops out the eyes.

Line your upper upper lids – Most of the makeup artists do recommend lining the upper lids only. Better to use a liquid eyeliner rather than a pencil eyeliner. Also on the outer corner, just flick the line up, so that it gives a “lifting” effect to the eyes. However, thick heavy lines are a big NO.
However, you can also go ahead and line your lower lid at times, but remember to use a pencil liner instead of liquid. If you can smudge the line a bit, its even better! However, avoid lining the inside of the eyes.

Be careful about shimmer – If you are not careful with shimmer, it can be your biggest foe. Shimmery shadows highlight crow’s feet. However, in the inner corner of the eye this same shimmery eyeshadow can work wonderful. In the inner corner of the eyes, apply a dot of a light eyeshadow which is shimmery. This will make the eyes pop out.

Dont go for heavy colorful eyemakeup -  If the upper eyelid is already saggy, avoid using multi colored eyeshadows. However, do not forget to use an eyeshadow primer. Then go for a light eyeshadow which goes well with your skintone. Do not use any brigh crazy eyeshadow colors!

Use false lashes – Yes go for false lashes, if possible. However, do not choose the full lashes which were used in the 70s, instead go for individual lashes.
