Ok, so we know that we need hormones to be happy and have babies and all that business, but is it really necessary that they come with so many negative side effects? We’re not sure how much more we can take! Somebody pass us some Evening Primrose Oil – QUICK!

Mood swings
One minute you’re delighted with life, the next? Your boyfriend has given you a funny look and you feel like you’re either about to burst into tears or kill him stone dead. Either way, it’s not good, and hormones are to blame.

You could wash your face a thousand times a day, but hormones don’t care. They will give all the bacteria in your face a little pep talk for one week of every month, and next thing you know you’re down in the chemist investing in an industrial strength concealer. The hormones win again.

Excessive sweating
If you find yourself sweating an awful lot, especially during that time of the month, hormones are probably to blame. They’re just not happy with making you moody and giving you spots, they want to make you sweat as well. They are pure evil.

If it weren’t for hormones, we wouldn’t have to live through a week or more of PMS each month. Seriously, why do they make being a girl so difficult?

Messed up libido
If you’re on the pill, you might notice that it’s either killed off your sex drive completely, or put it into overdrive. Is it too much to ask for a constant, stable feed of whatever hormone it is you need for a working libido? Of course it is. Because hormones don’t negotiate. They just do whatever the hell they want. 



After arriving into the office with humidity hair and sweaty faces yet again, the SHEmazing! girls have decided enough is enough! We've worked tirelessly to compile the ultimate list of tips and products to make you look 'Hot but not hot' while the temperatures soar.


Conditioner: The sun is going to frazzle your hair, so treat it to a strong conditioner each time you wash it. This will keep your locks in good condition, while helping them resist the humidity.

Salt spray: If your hair is very fine, it’s likely to go limp in the heat. Salt spray is a great way to boost volume and texture, while giving you beach-worthy waves. Toni & Guy Casual Sea Salt Texturing Spray is one of our favs!

Cover up: If your hair refuses to behave or is getting greasy too quickly, you can’t go wrong with a classic wide-brimmed hat, paired with Audrey Hepburn shades. A pretty scarf wrapped around your head will also do the trick.


Stay safe: Nothing says ‘sweaty mess’ quite like lobster skin – and let’s not even start with the health implications! Make sure to apply a top-notch sunscreen to all exposed skin. Ambre Solaire Protection Lotion (SPF30) is a go-to for us, although we swear by Ambre Solaire Dry Mist (SPF50) if we’re heading down to the beach.

Banish scales: With bare arms and legs on show, make sure your skin is in tip-top condition by regularly exfoliating during showers. The healthier your skin is, the nicer your tan and the healthier your glow.


Waterproof eyes: No sooner does the sun appear then your perfectly applied eye make-up smudges and runs, giving you drunk-girl panda eyes. Combat this by investing in good waterproof products, such as Rimmel’s Exaggerate Waterproof Eye Liner and Benefit’s BADgal Waterproof Mascara.

Peach blush: In all that heat, your skin is going to be prone to redness, so you need to stay far away from red-tinted hues. Peach blush suits all skin tones and will give you a fresh glow.

No more sweat: A freshening spray like Urban Decay's All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray is the perfect way to cool your face down when you're feeling flushed. As well as setting your make-up, it makes your it super resistant to heat and humidity.

Now make this list your bible and be the beauty we know you are!
