Tips to Stop Sweating

How to Keep Sweat at Bay and Start Looking Hot

It's sweltering out, and no matter what you do, you are gonna get sweaty, which also means stinky. Little old Southern ladies dust on loads of scented talcum powder to absorb and deodorize body sweat, but that's not the best modern solution to the problem. Instead, here are a few forward-thinking tips to help you nip the sweat monster in the bud, so keep reading.

  • Keep your feet sweet and sweat-free with inserts, like Dr. Scholl's Odor Destroyers ($6). Also, avoid walking around barefoot—you'll get bacteria and organic matter on your soles, which will only increase the funk factor.
  • Use a stronger antiperspirant, like Secret Clinical Strength ($9). It works for 24 hours and has a time-release odor protection so you always smell nice.
  • Keep a few chilled wet wipes, like Pampers Kandoo Magic Melon Wipes ($10, refill), around. Even though they're made for babies; they're cheap, they smell like watermelon, and they're just as gentle and moisturizing on adult skin as on a 5-month-old's bottom. Throw them in the fridge or wrap a cold pack around them in your bag. A quick swipe on your arms and legs will cool you right down, keep you pleasantly scented, and prevent you from getting sweaty.
  • Put your hair in a big, fluffy ponytail. Most of us sweat, at least to some degree, from our scalps, and the best way to keep your head from sweating is to keep your hair off it. So rat it, use a Bumpit, do whatever you need to, but give your scalp some airflow and keep your hair off the back of your neck.

La Tua Cantante- I've seen bumpits in Claire's. Drugstores that have a "seen on TV" section (e.g., Walgreens, CVS) should also carry them.

yes, the easiest way to cool yourself down is to put something cool on your wrists.

i heard putting an icecube on your wrists will help keep you cool too.

I'm not into ponytails and I haven't had much reason to really need to put my hair up. This summer hasn't been that hot here actually. Also, this posting isn't about preventing sweat when working out.
