The dreaded “pit out” – no one wants to sweat through their shirt, let alone have other people see it. Not only is the feeling of constant wetness bothersome, but the odor that comes along with it? That’s just not the look we’re going for.
Even though sweat can be annoying or even embarrassing at times, your body needs to sweat to stay healthy. With a few lifestyles changes you’ll be well on your way to tackling sweat head on.
Reach for loose-fitting clothing made from natural fibers or breathable, moisture-wicking fabrics. This will help sweat evaporate efficiently, keeping moisture away from the body and keeping you feeling fresh. You can also try incorporating meditation or other calming exercises that can help you “keep your cool” in stressful situations.
Most of us apply our antiperspirant in the morning as we get ready for the day. While antiperspirant will work whenever you choose to apply it, the best time to apply is actually at night, before you go to sleep.
When we sleep, our body temperature cools down and our sweat rate is lower. This allows the active ingredient in antiperspirant to form more efficient plugs in the sweat ducts near the skin surface. Better plugs mean less sweat for long lasting sweat protection. Be sure to apply your antiperspirant in an even layer to clean, dry skin for best contact and better protection.
Even accounting for vigorous physical activity or intense stress, do you think you might be sweating more than usual? Heredity can play a role in how much we sweat. Some medications can cause excessive sweating, and it can also be triggered by life events, like pregnancy or menopause. If you’re unsure why you’re sweating more than usual or if you’re bothered by it, it may be a good time to check in with your doctor.
