There’s nothing worse sweating off your hard-earned, laboriously applied makeup on a hot day, but one beauty blogger has trialled an interesting way to combat the issue.
On her @anti_gorgeous Instagram account, Antonia shared her secret method for a shine-free face – deodorant.
“It's summertime and I SWEAT!” she captioned the tutorial video.
“I decided to try deodorant as a primer to stop the sweating through my foundation.”
The beauty blogger used Tom's of Maine, a US brand, which is a natural, aluminium-free deodorant.
Reactions have been mixed with some commenters praising the effectiveness of the unique primer while others have questioned its long term impact on skin.
Dermatologist Ava Shamban told Allure, "In general, these products are not formulated for facial skin, nor have they been tested on facial skin.”
"That being said, many people do use body lotions as facial moisturisers, and the same applies to sunscreens."
