When we think of summer, we like to pretend it’s all about day trips to the beach and showing off our favorite bathing suits.
But the truth is that the sweat storm is summer’s dark enemy.
When oil-blotting sheets and face mists aren’t cutting it anymore, these sly tricks help stop perspiration before it even starts.
Take notes, because hot mess is a good look for no one.
- Cut Back On The Caffeine. Your silk slip dress will thank you. Caffeine stimulates the central nervous system and activates sweat glands, which can make you glisten more than usual.
- Strategic Deodorant. Our underarms are not the only place that feels the heat. If you’re extra sweaty in certain areas (like your back, inner thighs) sweep on an antiperspirant to control it. Don’t use it for your face though.
- No salty snacks. When you consume large amounts of salt, your body does everything it can to get rid of the sodium—cue excessive sweating.
- Use antioxidants. One of the reasons your body insists on sweating is its attempt to get rid of toxins. Tomato juice and grapes are perfect for reducing sweat because they’re both loaded with antioxidants.
