DON’T SACRIFICE STYLE BECAUSE OF SWEAT
No-Sweat Fashion Tips So Excessive Perspiration Doesn’t Control Your Wardrobe
If you’d never consider wearing silk or even solid colors, like gray, for fear of noticeable underarm sweat marks, you pick patterns over solids to hide the issue, or typically pile on layers to mask the waterworks going on underneath, then perspiration is controlling your fashion choices.
This isn’t uncommon for people with problem perspiration, say our style and dermatology experts, and in a national survey conducted for Certain Dri, 45 percent of U.S. adults indicate they suffer from problematic perspiration and of this group, 18 percent – which translates to almost 19 million people – indicate that their perspiration has ruined some of their clothes. What’s more, problematic perspiration is a source of embarrassment for 16 percent of this group – more than 16 million – and 14 percent admit to being concerned about picking out clothing.
Just by knowing what fabrics to wear, the best styles or what antiperspirant to apply, that terrible feeling of being forced to wear unflattering shoes or to hide behind patterns, under layers or in dark colors that help conceal sweat stains, will be a memory of the past.
Sound good? Great!
Below, are a few no-sweat fashion tips that are sure to leave you feeling cool and confident in the latest fashions:
- Choose Your Fabrics Wisely: Wear natural fabrics such as cotton, which absorbs and releases perspiration quickly allowing the skin to breathe. This is not a sacrifice, there are some really great clothes made of cotton. Not to mention these natural fabrics feel terrific against your skin and allow your pores to ‘breathe.’ Until you get your perspiration under control, avoid silks because silk is very unforgiving to noticeable sweat marks; it looks just terrible.
- Keep It Dry: Curb the water works at night and apply antiperspirant at bedtime. Look for Certain Dri Anti-Perspirant Roll-On with 12 percent aluminum chloride, the number-one doctor-recommended brand for over 30 years. Certain Dri, also available in a new solid application, provides 72-hours of protection from noticeable sweat, allowing you to wear just about any style or color and look fabulous while wearing it!
- Buy clothing that fits: It doesn’t have to be skin tight to look good. Tight-fitting clothes cause sweat to be trapped in a film on the skin, which can result in body odor or noticeable perspiration stains. Clothing that fits properly is one of most important fashion tips to observe because well-fitting clothing can also hide figure flaws, as well as accentuate your assets.
- Accessorize Your Outfit: If you already have noticeable sweat stains or are still worried you will get them then try having a cardigan, wrap or light jacket handy to cover the stains, nobody will ever suspect you’re covering up sweat marks.
