Sweat Control Tips

Everyone sweats. It’s natural. And it happens in all kinds of situations. Here are a few tips to control it.

Staying Dry

Tip 1: Use DryIdea® Antiperspirant

You never know when perspiration can occur. So Dry Idea® antiperspirant is specially formulated to keep you dry... no matter what. That's what makes it the most "brand loyal" product in the antiperspirant/deodorant category.

Tip 1: Use DryIdea<sup>®</sup> Antiperspirant

Tip 2: Breathe

Maybe it's a big client presentation. Maybe it's the moment just before your youngest is ready to sing on stage. Perspiration happens. And it happens from 2 things: temperature increase and emotional anxiety. Of those two, emotional anxiety produces the quickest and, sometimes, most noticeable results. If you begin to feel anxious, take a few deep breaths. They can cleanse your mind and your system to help decrease anxietal perspiration.

Tip 3: Check the label on your deodorant product

You're in a hurry at the store (and aren't you always?). But don't just grab the first bottle you see. Make sure you always purchase an antiperspirant or antiperspirant/deodorant and not just a deodorant. Deodorants contain nothing to help stop sweat.

Tip 4: Wear light-colored, loose-fitting clothing

The charity lunch. The company summer outing. You always want to look your best -- especially in situations where you're socializing or interacting with a group. But if you think you may experience some anxiety, take care with the clothes you choose to wear. A loose fitting outfit allows for more air circulation next to your skin. And if you do sweat, a lighter color shows less sweat.

Tip 5: Wear cotton

Just like you can breathe to reduce perspiration -- cotton breathes as well. It allows for more airflow, therefore less perspiration and odor. Silk or artificial fibers can cling to your skin and restrict airflow.

Tip 6: Check with your doctor

Emotion or temperature can induce sweating. But typically it's not an extreme amount. If you find yourself sweating excessively and consistently, you may have hyperhidrosis, a condition that affects about 8 million Americans. If so, your doctor can work with you to investigate treatment options.
