I’m pleased it’s finally summer, I’m on countdown to that glorious two weeks of indulgence and relaxation that re-energise me for the second half of the year. Holidays are just wonderful, time off the mental strains of your day to day life.
Here in the UK, Mother Nature seems to be a little confused but in all honesty I’m a little pleased that it’s still spring outside because I’m getting respite from my usual summer crisis. Sweat.
Like hundreds of other women out there I am sweaty. When I say sweaty I’m not talking little damp patches here I’m talking two different outfits a day. This means that certain colours and styles are a big no no in the summer months (if I don’t want to advertise it to everyone – which let’s be honest isn’t something I’m keen to do).
Even the standard summer essential white has a tendency to go see through under the moisture pressure that are my pits. I’m so conscious of it and I spend all my time worrying about how I must look to “normal” people and thinking that I smell!. I have to say it’s a bit of a nightmare.
So how pleased am I to hear that there’s a solution? Botox! Apparently when injected into the armpits it can stop excessive sweating. And the best bit is that treatment can last more than 6 months. That’s more than the whole summer, I see a future where I can wear colour in the summer and stop having to worry about feeling sweaty. Sign me up.
