Make no bones about it: a summer look can easily turn into a sweaty look when left unprotected. A quick dash from the station to the office, or an extended lunch meeting on the patio—you are always susceptible to torrents of perspiration with little or no effort. While we all love a dewy look (regardless of it’s makeup or natural), sometimes you simply want a flawless face that lasts longer than an ice cream cone at the beach.

Luckily, a number of beauty brands have brought innovation and inspiration to the forefront—and just in time for the sunny season! Here, we’ve picked out a few of our favourite goodies that will withstand summer’s sweltering heat to help keep your beauty looks intact.

Good to know: Hydration is ESSENTIAL to a natural moisture balance. Always have some H2O on hand to keep your skin the picture of beauty canvas perfection.
