It's nice to get beauty advice from a friend, but what about those problems that no one talks about? Is it a usual occurrence for you to get makeup on your clothes before you leave the house? It has happened to the best of us. Do you struggle to remove deodorant stains from clothes? Unfortunately, that's a common one too. Do you have heels you've been avoiding because you don't want blisters? You're not the only one. Do you sweat your makeup off pretty easily? There's a way to prevent that. Are you tired of editing your shiny forehead out of photos? There's a product to remove the oil in person (before snapping pics) that won't mess up your makeup.

Oh, and it's summer now, which means that chafing is all too real, especially for the inner thighs, underneath your boobs, or under your arms. What about butt sweat or butt acne? Yeah, those things happen. There are so many problems like these that we all have, but some of us don't love talking about. If these issues sound relatable, then keep on scrolling to find out about products that really work.

The Problem- Getting Makeup on Your Clothes; The Fix- Makeup Protector Hood

You could get dressed and then put on your makeup, taking the risk that it will end up on your outfit. Or you can do your makeup before putting clothes on, taking the risk that you'll get makeup on your clothes when you put on a top or a dress. Neither strategy is ideal which is why you need a makeup protector hood. Yes, it looks pretty silly, but it's such a cool hack. Put on your makeup as per usual. Then, put on the makeup hood before you pull a sweater over your head. Once you're dressed, unzip the hood, and you've successfully avoided getting makeup on your clothes.

And, if you are someone who applies makeup down the neck and into the chest,  this makeup hood covers that area too.

The Problem- Skin Chafing; The Fix- Body Glide for Her Anti Chafe Balm

The Problem- Ingrown Hairs & Razor Bumps; The Fix- Completely Bare Bikini Bump Blaster Pads

Razor bumps are the worst. And you can include ingrown hairs to the list of post-shaving problems. These pre-soaked pads are a miracle worker though. They smooth your skin, get rid of the bumps and ingrown hairs, and unlike other similar products, these don't sting or cause additional irritation. These are also great to have on hand after waxing.

The Problem- An Oily Face; The Fix: Revlon Oil-Absorbing Volcanic Face Roller

The Problem- Butt Sweat; The Fix: Lady Anti Monkey Butt

The phrase "swamp ass" is just as gross as the occurrence itself, but, it happens to all of us.... whether we want to admit it or not. Thankfully, there's a solution. Just put this powder on before you get dressed to reduce sweating, prevent chaffing, and soothe skin irritations.

One Amazon customer raved, "It's necessary. If I could fill a tub with this and roll around in it every morning from March—October in Texas I would! Between the heat, the humidity, and exercise you can get VERY funky and this powder stops it before it happens. If you need a product to keep you fresh and dry for hours, this will do it. You'll thank yourself later when you aren't plagued with swamp a$$."

Another shopper said, "Get a swamp-butt after sitting in your fake leather desk chair all day? Never again. This powder is AMAZING and smells so nice. I can tell a huge difference on days I forget to put it on after my shower or before bicycling. This is now a must-have essential part of my daily routine. Recommended to all the ladies! 10/10."

The Problem- Butt Acne; The Fix- BellamiLuxx Butt Acne Clearing Lotion

This is another one of those skin issues that no one talks about, however, butt acne, aka "buttne," is definitely a thing. This cream is what you need to clear up butt acne and inflammation. It's antibacterial, moisturizing, and repairing. Once you clear that skin up, you can keep applying this lotion as a preventative treatment. 

Some Amazon customers say this is a "miracle product." One elaborated, "I will break out from wearing workout leggings for too long. Or tight clothing in general! I recently moved to a beach city and I am constantly wearing a bathing suit, I've been SO self conscious about my butt that some days I wouldn't even want to go to the beach or wear my super cute bikinis because of my butt breakouts, so I would wear my more covered bathing suits. This has been a saving grace."

Another shared, "I am truly satisfied with how this product works on Butt acne. I am 51 and have always said, 'Better there then on my face' but seriously who wants this at 51. I have been overjoyed with the results."

The Problem- Skin Redness; The Fix- Dr Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment

When your face gets red, you just want a quick fix. Unfortunately, skin redness often results from irritation.

It's truly miraculous. It gets the job done, has great coverage, and it's lightweight.  It even has SPF in the formula. Say goodbye to redness in an INSTANT when you apply this cream.
