We’ve all suffered through the seemingly inevitable trials of hot weather. Maybe you showered and left for work, only to realize when you got there that your commute got you all smelly and sweaty again; or maybe you have evening plans right after work, with no time for a shower. Long story short, you find yourself in the bathroom doing the time-honored summer beauty ritual of busy women everywhere. One hand rubs hand sanitizer onto your armpits while the other hand mops up forehead sweat from under your flattened bangs with a paper towel, and then the grand finish: a complicated yoga pose under the hand dryer in an attempt to dry everything off (but oh god, the heat of that hand dryer).
