Sweat Reduction Tips
There is a lot of variation in ‘normal’ sweat levels between individuals. Those wet patches are never a welcome sight – especially outside of the gym or sports field.
Many people who consider themselves as heavy sweaters are well inside the normal range. What you will find is that others use a combination of strategies for hiding or reducing their sweat levels. Simply put, the key to avoiding underarm (or other) patches is to be smart about how you manage your sweat!
The infographic below gives you an overview of the many misunderstood aspects of sweating.
Below this infographic is a summary of those tips for getting your sweat under control.
10 Sweat Reduction Tips
These tips are in order of how easy they are to implement. Remember, the very best results come when you combine them.
#1 – Choose Dark Colours: Bright clothing shows the sweat patches very easily. Choose black or navy for the best camouflage. Alternatively, plain white hides sweat well – though this is more fabric dependent.
#2 – Use Antiperspirant: Technology has moved on with underarm antiperspirants over the last decades. This no longer stains your clothes, and is less sticky than it once was. This works by physically blocking the sweat ducts, and often includes extra ingredients to reduce smells.
#3 – Shave Your Armpits: This tip is for men, since ladies have known about this for decades already. You’ll allow your antiperspirant to get to where it is needed by shaving. You will also reduce heat, which triggers more sweat. As a bonus, microbes (which produce smells) love the armpit hairs, and removing this reduces their numbers significantly.
#4 – Smart Fabric Choices: Some man-made fabrics are good at removing sweat from its source. Older polyesters can become home to microbes (and get smelly). Cotton is cool, though does hold on to sweat. New man-made fabrics are ideal. These will combine being breathable with moving sweat away.
