No one wants slippery and sweaty feet, especially when they’re rolling on heels, but that doesn’t mean Mother Nature is on our side.

Temperatures are reaching record highs and things are finally opening up after a year of confinement. Still, finding a balance between showing off all the cute outfits you couldn’t wear before and staying comfortable can be nearly impossible. The sweat will come. Too much moisture in your shoes is not only a little funky, it can also cause blisters and bubbles on the skin.

Luckily, In The Know’s Lisa Azcona has an unexpected hack to make wearing heels more comfortable in hot weather. All you need to keep your feet from sweating and slipping is, surprisingly, a dry shampoo.
“The perfect heel can elevate any outfit,” says Lisa. “But it’s hard to get past the fact that they’re uncomfortable, especially in hot environments when your feet are sweaty and sliding forward in your heels.”
For this tip, just grab your favorite dry shampoo, preferably one that uses a spray nozzle for easy application.
“It turns out that dry shampoo works great at absorbing oils and sweat using alcohol and starch-based active ingredients,” she explains.
Spray the dry shampoo on your feet a few minutes before you leave. Once you put your heels on, you can spray another coat over it if it’s sandals or an open toe.
“Make sure you are careful about the amount of spray, as this can leave a white residue,” she advises. “You want to be as unobtrusive as possible, so I recommend targeting the soles of your feet. ”
Before trying this trick, you might want to test a piece of skin on your feet to make sure the dry shampoo doesn’t cause irritation.
“This tip is great because it keeps your feet out of moisture and also makes them less slippery as it adds a bit of grip and traction to that area,” says Lisa. “And it’s a bonus that it keeps your feet fresh and smelling good.”
