    31 Things For People Who Feel Like They're Always, Always Sweating

    Is it raining outside or are you just sweaty?

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    Unless otherwise specified, all sizes in this post are listed in women's.

    1. A refreshing hyaluronic acid face spray with cucumber extract that'll feel like a splash of spa water whenever you're feeling overheated, or just really any ole time.

    I've had this spray sitting on my vanity for about a month (along with the hyaluronic acid serum, which I also really dig). I don't use it every day but find it as a nice afternoon refresher or something to use after I've taken a shower post-workout but am still somehow sweating (dang you, HIIT). It moisturizes without making my face feel greasy. Plus it's super gentle on my super sensitive, rosacea-laden skin.

    Get it from Amazon for $13.95.

    2. A lightning fast chiller to help get your coffee to a temp that won't make you sweat even more in merely *one minute* without watering it down like pesky, slow-working ice cubes!

    hand pouring coffee out of chemex into the chiller cup

    Seriously, we're living in the future. This works on coffee, tea, booze, water. Whatever (besides sparkling bevs)!

    Promising review: "Amazing! I hate drinking a hot latte in the summer and sweating all over...this makes coffee ice cold in seconds! Can't wait to chill a glass of wine in it!" —Dancequeen19

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    3. And a ~magical~ cup for turning whatever liquid you pour into it into slush right before your eyes. After all, you could use a chilly treat!

    cups with red slushee drink inside

    When not in use, keep the inner core in your freezer. Then place it in the cup when you're ready for a frozen treat.

    Promising review: "I LOVE this product. It makes awesome slushies, is easy to clean, and a great product for the hot Florida summers. During the summer I use it nearly every day. I've used it with coffee and cream, juice, peach sweet tea, and soda. I haven't found anything that doesn't work with this product! I've tried just about every slushy maker out there, and this is absolutely the best one!" —Thesillybanana

    Get it from Amazon for $38.99+ (available in two color combos).

    4. Spray-on sunscreen with cooling powers to help keep you protected and feeling calm and collected. YOU SHOULD ALWAYS WEAR SUNSCREEN.

    Get two bottles from Amazon for $12.47.

    5. And a chilly aloe spray for some relief for any irritated, sunburned skin. Reviewers also like to use it as moisturizer!

    the bottle

    Hypoallergenic, gluten-free, and vegan.

    Promising review: "Great product. It keeps you from peeling, and it helps you recover after a long day of sun. Sometimes I even use it as a moisturizer before bed because I tan often. It keeps my skin from getting dry, and is a much more effective way to keep your skin hydrated than lotion. Oily at first, but it soaks in." —NOLA Josh

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    6. Bike shorts that'll give ya' the comfort of leggings without worrying about the hem rolling up or everyone in the room realizing you have swamp ass. Hey, it's sweaty out there!

    Plus size model wearing stretchy black bike shorts with white tank

    Get them from Boohoo for $6 (available in three colors and sizes 12–24).

    7. A Thompson Tee sweat-proof undershirt for a steeper price than regular undershirts thanks to fancy features like built-in sweat-absorbing pads. But you know what else costs ya'? Pit stains.

    T Thompson

    Promising review (for men's original fit crewneck): "Before I found Thompson Tees, I only wore white or black dress shirts because they did not show sweat as much as other shirts. Now I can wear any color!" —Jason L

    Get them from Thompson Tee: men's shirts for $27.99 (four styles and sizes XS-3XL) and women's shirts for $27.99 (three styles and sizes XS-2XL)

    8. Sweat-wicking pajamas that don't look like sweat-wicking pajamas. All the better to look super pulled-together while becoming one with your couch.

    purple V-neck pajama top and matching shorts

    Promising review: "I'm a chronic night sweater living in a really hot New York City apartment — I'm so glad I invested in these. They are really soft and while I still have to kick off the sheets few times throughout the (as usual), I feel much cooler than normal, and I stayed dry! I really am able to sleep much better." —Vanessa

    Get them from Amazon for $14+ (available in 16 colors and sizes S–3X).

    9. A set of cool and silky pillowcases to work double time for you with one side of breathable cotton and the showstopper side in Japanese cooling fabric. This is taking the cool side of the pillow to ANOTHER level.


    Promising review: "Best...Pillowcases...Ever!! I run hot all the time, especially at night. This really helps to keep me cool at night. I fall asleep, stay asleep, and wake up refreshed. The cool side of the pillow is always your side of the pillow! I actually sometimes get cold during the night. If you wake up in the middle of the night sweating, you need to get this!" —Kim

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in two sizes and two colors).

    10. A seamless compression crop top that will move with you as you workout BUT will also help you show a little more skin, increase your cooling airflow. And if ya' dig it, there are enough color options to wear a different one every day of the month.

    Free People

    Get it from Free People for $30 (available in 30 colors and sizes XS/S or M/L).

    11. Breathable cotton undies for those days when you just know you're gonna sweat but don't want swamp ass. (Soooo, most days?)

    pair pairs of differently colored bikini briefs

    Get a five-pack from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in sizes 5–10, which are weird sizes but basically translate to S–3XL, so consult the size chart on the product page).

    Also check out some moisture-wicking thongs.

    12. *Sheer* sculpting shorts to help smooth out things underneath your clothes in a more breathable manner than thick OG sculpting shorts.

    plus size model wearing a black bra and black shaping shorts in sheer black

    Raise your hand if you've ever turned yourself into a sweaty mess thanks to wearing shapewear in the humid summer heat. ::raises both hands:: When SKIMS dropped their sheer line, I nabbed a pair of these in Clay (the second lightest color that also happens to most closely match my skin tone). I've worn them around the house (thanks, quar) under slinkier sundresses and love how they help with the air flow while still doing what shapewear promises. Not that I'd normally wear shapewear around the house, but I couldn't wait to try out those shorts!

    Get them from SKIMs for $44 (available in five shades and sizes XXS–4X).

    13. An ice roller that'll help de-puff your eyes in the morning or just feel oh so nice when you want to feel cooled down AND pampered.

    Promising review: "I use this whenever I feel tired, and always after I’ve cleansed my face. I use rubbing alcohol to clean it after use and then put it back in the freezer in its own ziplock bag. I notice it’s helped with the redness in my face and it also helped when I’ve had migraines. It starts behind my eye so I roll it over whichever side of my head is in pain and it seems to help." —maihiro

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99 (available in nine color combos).

    14. And some seriously cooling undereye patches made to help calm and firm up stressed skin. They're super chilly ASAP out of the package, so no need to keep 'em in the fridge with your other sheet masks.

    Skyn Iceland

    I've used these and they are V cool as soon as you apply them to your undereyes! I love using them in the summer or in the winter when I can't seem to escape the hot winter heat of my apartment. Free of parabens, petroleum, mineral oil, chemical sulfates, and phthalates. 100% vegan and cruelty-free. Dermatologist tested for sensitive skin.

    Get eight pairs from Amazon for $24.

    15. A smart Energy Star-certified unit enabled with Wi-Fi and three fan speeds for helping you keep your cool without getting a rude awakening on your next power bill. If you're operating on the energy saver mode, the fan and compressor will kick off once the room gets to the desired level of cool, saving you cash.

    The Home Depot

    It has a filter reminder light for cleaning purposes and a cooling area of up to 350 sq. ft.

    Promising review: "This air conditioning unit really delivers! Cools your room in minutes and the auto function is spot on." —Duckie

    Get it from The Home Depot for $299.

    16. An anti-sweat bundle (including a deodorant, body powder, and anti-chafe stick) that'll keep you feeling dry, calm, and collected in the sweatiest of situations. Plus the packaging is so cute, you won't mind whipping it out of your bag while you're on the go!

    the deodorant, body powder, and anti-chafe stick

    FYI, the aluminum-free natural deodorant comes in three scents (fresh wood, tea tree mint, and tangerine) and dries with a silky finish. The body powder is translucent, talc-free, sorta like dry shampoo for your body, rubs into all skin tones with no white cast, and has a light sea salt and rain scent. The anti-chafe stick is fragrance-free and safe to use all over your body.

    Get them from Hiki for $38 (value of $42 when bought separately).

    17. A water-activated cooling towel to keep handy anytime you're walking the dog, squeezing in a workout, doing yard work, reading a book on the porch, whatever!

    Chemical-free, reusable, and machine-washable.

    Promising review: "Great buy! I have done a lot yard work and recently had to break down a huge mount of dirt and rake grooves in it to plant grass seed. I so happened to pick one of the hottest days to do it. But this towel did the trick! It kept me cool enough to complete the task. I did have to go inside to get it cool again, but it took no time to do so." —Anna DePinto

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95 (available in 11 styles).

    18. Or a cooling bandanna you can wear around your neck or forehead while doing outdoorsy, sweaty things. Or maybe even doing indoorsy, sweaty things.

    red loop bandana with blue cooling section visible inside

    I've been super sweaty indoors LOTS of times.

    Promising review: "Great product for anyone that works outdoors in the summer. My hubby works outside as a postman and this product definitely helps keep him stay cool! He wets it down and puts it in the freezer. He carries it in his lunch box at work and when it starts getting hot, its ready to use and helps him finish out the day a lot cooler! And it's washable (we don't put in the dryer), which is a BIG plus!!" —Melissa

    Get it from Amazon for $5.05+ (available in nine colors).

    19. A bamboo sweat-wicking bra liner to keep you from feeling a bit heavier by mid-day thanks to sweat-soaked cups. (We've all, unfortunately, been there.)

    showing the liner worn underneath a bra

    Promising review: "So far so good! Wear them to work and the gym! Definitely catches all of the sweat!" —Ms. Rivera

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $14.98+ (available in sizes M, L, XL, XXL).

    20. A super comfy Hanes bra that, according to reviewers, can dry super fast and give ya' some lift. Oh, and sideboob spillage? It's about to be a thing of the past.,

    Promising review: "I'm a 36 DD or E, and even though it's not listed, I decided to give this a try, in size large. It showed up looking kind of small, but when I put it on, it was nice and stretchy. It's firm enough to hug you but not firm enough to give you bumps from digging into your skin. I was amazed I had support, my boobs look fantastic, and I even have some separation, the girls aren't crammed together in a uni-boob. I haven't had issues with sweat and I often forget I have this bra on. I'm ordering more of these — lots more." —PDX Alicia

    Get it from Amazon for $10+ (available in multiple colors and sets, and in sizes S–3X).

    21. Or a wireless cooling bra designed to cut down on underboob sweat.


    Promising review: "I am a 44 DD and this bra is so comfortable I gave all of my other bras away. I normally don't buy anything without underwire but this supports me without digging in and the best part is I have no red indentations on my shoulders at the end of the day. The fabric gives me a nice and airy feeling and I don't really get underboob sweat with this bra unless it is REALLY hot. Try it. I think it's worth it." —Christine

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in four colors and sizes 36C–44D).

    22. Super lightweight running shorts because if you're going for a summer run, it'll be helpful to wear the LEAST amount of clothing possible without getting arrested. I mean, these'll look cute during all sorts of other activities too!

    Free People

    Get them from Free People for $40 (also available in white and sizes XS-L).

    23. A colorless, odorless SPF 40 sunscreen to help you get your sun protection without worrying about a weird white cast or it melting down your face.


    Promising review: "I love the consistency of this. No shiny or white residue. I’m very sweaty and this stuff keeps me covered and protected." —Verified Purchaser

    Get it from Dermstore for $34.

    24. A clip-on desk fan with a USB charger so you don't even have to free up an outlet on the power strip in pursuit of a nice lil' breeze. Use it at your work station, your favorite reading spot, wherever!!

    desk with laptop with small size fan clipped onto edge of desk

    Promising review: "I couldn't say enough about this thingy! It saved our kid from a heat stroke this past August (2017) in Naples area Italy. Do you know how hot southern Italy was this August? HOOOT! Like Leonardo DiCaprio HOT! Anyways... It has a strong motor and a pretty decent battery life! We even used it as a cooling fan when sleeping at night, attach right to the headboard, as one of the hottest region in Italy hardly has any A/C when doing Airbnb. One of the best travel expenses EVER! And yes, my husband looked like a terminator with the fan attached to our baby carrier, while walking around in Positano. :D" —TJ

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    25. Or a *super* portable air cooler you can tote around as you move about your day because sometimes you and all the other people in the room can't come to a consensus on the perfect chilly temp. You can even add icy water to it to make it feel a bit closer to your freezer's air. Or if it's not quite hot enough to turn on the AC, this is a new compromise.

    FYI, this is just to cool one person, not a room.

    Promising review: "I am working at home right now. Getting hot in my bedroom, but not too hot to turn on the AC. It is greater than I thought. Basically it's a fan and humidifier in one. Not too big and low noise. You can turn on or turn off the humidifier. Put the water or ice in the container, it can run like five hours or so. Just remember it is not a real AC, will not cool down the whole room." —Jose

    Get it from Amazon for $50.99.

    26. Antiperspirant hand lotion for anyone who suffers from constantly sweaty hands. It's recommended by dermatologists and the reviews are FULL of believers.

    reviewer's dry looking hand holding the tube of cream

    Promising review: "I’ve been pretty impressed with this cream. I have hyperhydrosis which mostly affects my hands and feet. I take an oral medication fort condition but I still have sweating sometimes which is why I decided to try this lotion. I’ve been using this product mostly on my feet about three times a week for a little over a month now. This cream has a slight smell but it’s nothing awful at all. I’ve noticed a little bit goes a long way. Before bed I put the cream on the bottoms on my feet. It doesn’t really leave any residue. It almost makes my feet instantly feel dry. I have definitely noticed that it helps maintain minimal sweating without any crazy side effects. I’ve also used this on my hands as well. This is a product that actually does help with my hyperhydrosis and I’ll definitely be ordering more when I run out!" —Lauren p.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    27. A foot deodorant cream because you can't forget about your poor sweaty feet too!

    the container of foot cream

    Promising review: "If you have sweaty feet there is nothing on the market better than Lavilin. I've tried everything and this stuff is the only product that actually works. My feet use to sweat and smell. Not anymore!" —Tracker

    Get it from Amazon for $19.08.

    28. A super powerful deodorant that won't make you worry about if it's working or make your precious pits break out into rashes while.

    the stick of deodorant

    I started using this stuff in middle school and used it into adulthood. I recently fell for the allure of cucumber-scented deodorant that promised to help make my armpits softer. Turns out, it broke me out into a rash and I'm back on Mitchum. And my friend who has about a million skin allergies swears by it too! If you're wondering about that "48-hour" claim right there on the packaging, it's legit. I've tried it!

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $6.80.

    29. A matte-finish setting spray ready to lock in your makeup to help avoid touchups throughout the day, even if your day involves an outdoor workout class.


    I've used this before and, tbh, it stacks up to the much pricier luxury setting sprays.

    Promising review: "I’ve been using this for a while, but finally needed to write a review. This morning, I put my makeup on and did some generous sprays of this setting spray. Then, I went into the 100+ degree heat and demonstrated a short workout at an outdoor event. Despite drinking as much water as I could handle, I overheated quickly and EMS had to come to my rescue. Between my boyfriend and EMS, there was a small crowd around me: literally pouring ice water on me; mopping my face and neck with cold towels; pressing ice packs on me. This continued for a while and I was sure that my makeup was gone, but this spray kept my face mostly intact!

    If this spray can keep my makeup on through an encounter with EMS and being essentially submerged in ice water, it can keep yours on through your (hopefully less eventful) day!" —Bugaboo

    Get it from Amazon for $8.49.

    30. Or a budget-friendly setting powder in case sprays aren't your thing but you need something to keep the sweat off the beautiful masterpiece of your face.,

    I own, use, and love this. Plus, it's in a HUGE container and lasts for what feels like forever.

    Promising review: "Great for baking (setting) under eye concealer (or concealer anywhere). Also, if I start sweating during my foundation application, I lightly dust this powder on my skin and the sweating not only stops then, but it will pretty much keep it at bay for the rest of the day.

    The powder does have a slight scent to it which doesn’t bother me however no one has told me that I smell like something different or powdery since I’ve been wearing it." —jillianmaxmillian

    Get it from Amazon for $4.49+ (available in six shades).

    31. And cooling bamboo sheets so you won't wake up from a dream drenched in sweat. Gross.

    bed with blue and gray sheets

    FYI, this brand has a 30-night period to try 'em out with no questions asked if you're not a fan. (It applies to both their bamboo and French linen bedding.)

    Promising review: "I needed to replace a set of old pilled sheets, with something suitable for hot sleepers. Did a bit of research and found the bamboo-lyocell fabric. After sleeping in it for a few weeks, I can say it is both very soft and has kept us cool. Bamboo is a sustainable material, and I feel comforted knowing this product is Oeko-Tex Certified, (no harmful chemicals). I'm happy with these sheets and would purchase again :-)" —Sophia F.

    Get them from Sijo for $66.50+ (available in eight colors and six sizes).
