Friday Tip

Dear Constant Reader,

It’s full summer here in New England and that means it’s hot and humid. Your costume pieces stick to your sweaty body. Except, of course, the items you want to stick — your pasties! Those seem to slide right off. Which leads to this week’s tip!

Pack a small towel to dry your skin before attaching your pasties.

Moisture can interfere with the adhesive; clean, dry skin improves your chances of keeping your pasties in place. If you are particularly sweaty, wash your skin and then dry it very well before you put on the adhesive. I know some people use alcohol wipes. They are convenient and very drying, but alcohol can damage your skin’s barrier. However you clean your skin, make sure to moisturize after you remove the adhesive.
