You’re not alone is you’ve been caught off-guard by your sweat patches, even celebs like Meghan Markle have been snapped with annoying damp patches.
Luckily, It turns out there’s loads you can do to concur them, especailly during sweltering the summer months.
Dr Sweat shared some genius tips that will help keep your armpits cool and sweat free.
It all comes down to your clothing, the pro suggests wearing darker colours or vibrant prints, “if you do sweat through your clothes, patches and stains will be less noticeable.”
Of course, choosing fabrics is important, while you might be restricted to a shirt at work, investing a a quality cotton or linen shirt will be more breathable.
“Avoid polyester and synthetic fabrics, as they trap heat and sweat,” the pro says.
Footwear’s also important to consider, “where it’s appropriate, wear sandals or open-toed shoes, and when you’re home, try to go barefoot,” the sweat expert explained.
Allowing air to move freely around your neck and head will also help more than you might think, so if you’ve got long hair opt for a bun or ponytail.
Tight skinny jeans are out of the question if you suffer with excess sweat.
The pros recommend hemming your trousers “so the ankle can breathe, or wear shorts or cropped pants for the best circulation.”
If you still suffer with annoying sweaty spots after that, change the way you apply your deodrant.
It might seem fool proof, but it’s not as obvious as you might think.
The pros explained: “This is especially true if you’re using a roll-on product, which is very moist.
“Also, experiment with amounts you’re applying—you might be applying too much at one time, or reapplying too frequently.”
For women, layering might seem counter intuitive, but it gives you options to work with.
The sweat pros added: “No matter how casual or formal your office, women’s dress codes usually permit some layers that you can take off while still looking professional.”
There are also logical ways you can avoid sweating too much when it’s hot out.
Obviously, try to stay out of the sun and keep a cold bottle of water with you if you travel.
The pros said: “If you’re by a window, try anti-glare or light-filtering blinds, they block out the sun’s glare while still allowing light in.
“And when you’re going out, close your blinds so your home doesn’t heat up.”
