Hope this helps.

1. Linen breathes the best out of any fabric.

Cotton breathes, but takes forever to dry. Linen is the lightest material that breathes while giving you the illusion of being cooler (literally, not figuratively).

3. Wear wicking underwear.

Hi-tech fabrics tend to dry faster. Most athletic brands make them.

Just be sure to swap them out with more breathable fabrics at night, or else you risk harboring nasty odors.


5. Try jeans that are part elastane or polyurethane instead of 100% cotton.

Because synthetic fabrics are more likely to wick the moisture away. They are more likely to hold onto odors, however. It's always a win-lose situation, sigh.

7. If you're sweating down there, chances are you're sweating under the arms, too.

Invest in a micromodal undershirt to wear underneath your clothes. They'll absorb perspiration before reaching your nice business casj outfit.

For guys, try the Thompson Tee.

8. Powder is messy and can turn into a gross pasty mess, so try a lotion that dries to a powder instead.

Or try Gold Bond in spray form. One other helpful note: Gold Bond contains corn starch, so if you've got any kind of fungal infection going on, the corn starch could feed the yeast and make it worse.

11. Cut down on the caffeine.

People with a predisposition to excessive sweating could see a correlation between episodes of sweating soon after consuming stimulants such as coffee.

14. Feel a nasty case of swanus coming on? Head to the bathroom and wipe your butt down with flushable baby wipes.

17. See your doctor.

You may have hyperhydrosis (excessive sweating disorder), for which a doctor can prescribe you a prescription-strength deodorant. It could also be indicative of a thyroid or neurological problem that you'll definitely want to get checked out.
