Summer is a great time to step out en femme. But, let’s not forget about that summer heat that everyone has to deal with. No crossdresser is stepping out of the house in hosiery and shape gear. Talk about sweaty and uncomfortable! Have no fear, though, there are plenty of summer tips and tricks for the everyday crossdresser and transgender that will keep you cool.
Your number one priority this summer is purchasing a GREAT sweatproof primer! This will guarantee a flawless finish with any makeover. Primer will reduce the amount of smudging and running makeup throughout the day. It will also help keep your skin soft and blemish-free. I never go a summer day without sweatproof primer and neither should you.
If you would like to give a sweat-proof primer a try, Glamour Boutique’s Pro Face No Sweat Antiperspirant Skin Prep gives great results. It’s great for easy application and works wonders for your face and makeup throughout the day. I would 100% recommend this product to any of my crossdressing or transgender friends. This product is really a great value; only $11.95!
Plus, you can use it under breast forms to reduce any sweating for all-day wear. Give it a try!
One of the biggest sweat creators for any crossdresser during the summer are silicone breast forms. Talk about uncomfortable! However, you can avoid the sticky adhesive, added weight, and trouble by wearing a pair of foam breast forms. Foam is lightweight and does not require any spray adhesive that silicone forms require. See, in extreme temperatures, normal silicone adhesive sprays become less effective throughout the day when the body sweats. The more sweat causes the breast forms to move around and eventually fall off. However, foam breast forms easily fit into pocket bras and can be worn around with no hassle at all. They eliminate the sticky hot mess on your chest and give a little pep to your step due to how lightweight they are.
Plus, these forms are significantly cheaper than your normal silicone forms. They are absolutely a no regret buy.
These NYX blotting papers should be a crossdressers best friend! Never add powder to fix an oily or sweaty complexion again. First off, it’s not a very attractive look and it will clog your pores and create blemishes this summer. Instead, take out one of these papers from your purse and start blotting. In no time, your face will be dry and your makeup un-flawed.
I have heard great reviews about these NYX blotting pads. Only $3.79.
It’s no surprise that every woman wants a nice glow during the summer. However, it’s hard to find the time to hit the beach, tanning salon, or natural rays. Am I right? It’s even harder for crossdressers to get that desirable glow if they are uncomfortable with the beach, going to the salon, or laying out in public. However, Jergens Natural Glow is amazing! It is completely harmless to your skin and gives you that great glow at the same time. It also gives you another reason to remember to moisturize every day!
This lotion comes in many different shades for your skin preference. This product is a great time saver and will work for anyone! Try it out this summer!
Maxi’s and any bright summer dresses should be incorporated into any dressers wardrobe this summer! They are so easy to stay cool in. Plus, no serious tucking is necessary. The tightness of the process can make anyone feel uncomfortable in the heat.
So, go out and try on some styles! I personally feel that maxi dresses look good on many different body types.
Stay away from tight-fitting clothing! Think loose and cool this summer. Pair with a cute sandal and call it a day.
Peplum Skirts! These are great for crossdressers during the summer. This style requires no rear or hip shaping gear at all! The cut of these skirts will naturally make anyone look like they have wider hips. The way the skirt gets wider at the hips will create a wonderful hourglass shape that every crossdresser or transgender is searching for. They will keep you cool and definitely stylish this summer! You can find these skirts at many big clothing retailers. I would recommend looking in Macy’s for some great quality peplum skirts.
