Oh yes, the times of dripping brows and (dare we say it)...chaffing are upon us, and it's all thanks to our dear friend: humidity. 

Get ready to sweat it out as humidity will average at about 90% in the hottest months of the summer. Which, basically means we'll be covered in sweat patches for three months solid, and we can say goodbye to wearing dark colours for the foreseeable future.

Humidity sucks and here are they reasons why...

1. You'll sweat in places you never knew you could

Behind the ear? Check! Between your toes? Check!

2. Styling your hair? Forget it.

Love to straighten your 'do or are you a fan of a good blow dry? Well, forget it this summer buddy, humidity has other plans for your barnet, and it involves frizz, frizz and more frizz.

Spend a minute or two in that heat and you'll be sweating out of your ears. A spare deo in your bag, at work or your back pocket....all practical investments.

10. Your car will no longer be a respite from the heat 

Your vehicle has morphed from a transport apparatus into your own personal sauna, and your AC has taken to emitting hot air...great. 


11. Putting on makeup will be a total waste of time

Unless you like it trickling down your face. Makeup for the ladies, tinted moisturiser for the lads (don't be shy, we know your tricks) will do nothing more than leave ugly brown smudge marks on your sparkling white summer tee.
