Heat levels are at an all-time high this week, which means your body temperature is going up too. Unless you were blessed with some crazy gene that keeps you from sweating, you’re probably wondering why you haven’t just melted away over the past few days. Although we haven’t discovered how to stop sweating altogether (which would be incredible), we figured out how to keep back sweat under control. Check out 4 ways to do it:
1. Antiperspirant spray or gel
Driclor is an antiperspirant that you can basically put anywhere on your body and it is known to help reduce sweat up to almost 70%. This can help with any part of your body that excessively perspires other than your back! Another one is called Odaban. You spray Odaban on the area of need after you shower and it lasts 24 hours
2. Wear activewear under your clothes
Rocking a sports tank under your outfit will help absorb the sweat on your back instead of going right through your shirt. Although wearing a cotton undershirt helps, the material doesn’t hold the sweat as well as activewear.
If your sweat is that bad, and you want a permanent fix, get Botox! Although it can be pricey, it might be worth it to invest if sweating is something that really bothers you. It works by blocking secretion of the chemical that turns your sweat glands on, interrupting the signal that starts the sweating.
4. Starch your shirt
Starching prevents shirts from sticking to your body, which in turn keeps the body cool because the space inside allows for circulation of air.
