Sweaty Breasts?! *Product Spotlight*

23 Jul

Did I get your attention???  Fantastic!

Because today’s post is all about some fancy little products and items that I think everyone should know about. Today we’re tackling the sweaty breasts, the dress chaffing, “tropical” heat moments of the Mothers of the bride and groom’s and more, and for those that might need a little more than a powder and antiperspirant.

The summer is now here and in full effect. With the temperatures outside rising, it is no big secret that some brides are often left sweating out in the heat on their big days, and of course the men too under their suits and tuxes.

Let’s face it, those dresses are often huge and hot. Yards and pounds worth of heavy fabrics and tulle. Throw in the fitted and bustier style upper portions, with boning, lacing and more. You got yourself a smorgasbord of stuff going on. Now add in some 35+ degree weather and high humidity, you have one uncomfortable situation!

So  today I wanted to share with you some of my favorite product out there, that help a lady out (and guys!!)  that we always recommend to our Brides each and every year.

Whether it’s preventing the tummy and chest sweating, the un-mentioned breast sweating, to the chaffing and heat problems that can sometimes occur with the wedding gowns…

Below  are some awesome items I want to share with you:

Fresh Breast Lotion

1.  “B” Fresh Breast Lotion

It’s a light weight lotion that can be applied wherever it’s needed from chest and tummy to inner thighs, drying to a powder like finish, It helps prevent sweating and chaffing.

As an added bonus, they even have a gentlemen’s version too, called Fresh Balls…Yes you read that right. I’m sure I don’t need to explain the rest 😉

Wick'em Bra Liner

Similar to the above liner  – specially designed to absorb moisture and prevent skin irritation. These liners work by pulling perspiration away from the skin and into the cotton fill. Again you can wear them regularly, or flip the tabs under for lower cut styles.

Huppo

Huppo pouches

7. Huppo  pouches

This is a time release deodorant powder – The Huppo linen pouch delivers odor and moisture absorbing powder slowly throughout the day to the places you need it most. Your own movement causes the powder to be released from the pouch so, the more you move, the more powder is released.

Udder-ly Amazing!

28 Nov

With winter now here and the colder weather upon us I wanted to talk a little about this product and its use for dry and chapped skin.

I’ve had a few of our “winter brides” express concern over their drying skin for their up and coming weddings… as it can show in your photos!!

For this very reason we ALWAYS recommend a full body moisturize just before the big day, paying special attention to your feet…for those lovely “shoe shots” but also areas like the chest, shoulder and elbows.

For those suffering from extreme dryness, I thought I would give a little love to an amazing product called “Udderly smooth” and another product “Bag Balm

Originally developed for use on dairy cows during the harsh winter months it is now used by many people for their dry and chapped skin. It can be used as an everyday multipurpose moisturizing lotion.

These are AMAZING products and I absolutely love them!

Some know about them, others may not, so with my own skin starting to get a little dry in this weather and my constant use of them, I thought I would do a quick post to let others in on these amazing products should they not already know about them…

Other Moisturizing products I love:

Cetaphil

Aveeno

Gold Bond

Tips:

For those needing a little “extra” moisturizing; Place a healthy coat on hands and/or feet before bed. Place hands into cotton gloves to help lock elements out and let your skin absorb what it seeks from the product, same goes for your feet by placing a pair of socks over top while you sleep.

Those with young children suffering from Diaper rash, Udderly Smooth and Bag Balm are often recommended!!!

Other uses of these products are quite vast from treatments for Sunburns, eczema, psoriasis, burns and much more.

Here are the links below to the websites so you can check them out for yourself!
