Stains, chafing and smudges can become a thing of the past.
With so much on your plate, the last thing you want to worry about is an outfit or makeup mishap—especially at work. Here's how to handle five common ones that tend to happen in summer so you're always prepared.
SOLUTION: White House Black Market Scarf Print Reversible Dress ($110, whitehouseblackmarket.com)
Skip the stain remover and quickly slip into this comfy, wrinkle-resistant dress. It’s two office-friendly emergency outfits in one.
"Somehow my lunch always ends up on my dress, so this is a perfect solution." —Audrey Goodson Kingo, Working Mother's Deputy Editor
SOLUTION: Too Cool for School Dinoplatz Dear Brachiosaurus Blotting Paper ($6.50, [amazon.com]https://www.amazon.com/too-cool-school-Dinoplatz-Dear-Brachiosaurus/dp/B00S9D1VVW/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&%3BlinkCode=ll1&%3Btag=workingmotherbonnier-20&%3BlinkId=5ceec5d9ba52a430c18e9bd1aad5d830))<%2Fp>&tag=&asc_source=browser&asc_refurl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.betteryoumag.com%2Fstory%2Fstyle%2Feasy-solutions-to-your-most-common-on-the-job-outfit-makeup-mishaps%2F
Not only will this compact remove excess oil, but the sponge applicator, which picks up each blotting sheet, can be used to gently blend out cakey foundation, and the corners can be used for hard-to-reach areas like the sides of the nose.
"I always keep this in my purse for quick touch-ups."—Maricar Santos, Working Mother's Associate Editor
SOLUTION: Thigh Society Regular Rise Anti-Chafing Slip Short ($34, thighsociety.com)
Putting these on will give you immediate relief and prevent any further chub rub. Moisture-wicking, stretchy and breathable, they’re ideal for summer, will give you extra leg coverage and, unlike shapewear, won’t make you feel like a sausage.
SOLUTION: Band-Aid Brand Hydro-Seal Adhesive Bandages, All Purpose ($4, walmart.com)
This can protect blisters from further damage and helps prevent scabs so skin heals properly. Designed for long-term use, it can be worn on the feet and stays on even during showering.
SOLUTION: Say Hello to Sexy Legs Tinted Glow Gel ($38, qvc.com)
Apply a thin layer of this to your legs, then give it five minutes to dry (while you’re enjoying a cold beverage, of course). It’ll subtly make your gams look toastier but isn’t a pain to wash off like self-tanner.
