Men tend to sweat a lot more than women because of the fact that they are larger, have more body hair, and more muscular. As such, men need to take into consideration this bodily process when it comes to their clothes for the reason that sweat and odour can damage clothing, aside from the unpleasant sensation it causes. This is somewhat an issue since men can also spend a large amount on a shirt they really love and it would be a waste if that shirt will be stained with sweat later on.
The good thing is there are ways on how men can sweat proof their clothes so they can go on and buy the shirt they like without worrying about sweat stains especially on hot summer days.
First, you need to look for a good antiperspirant to use during the summer season. Or if you prefer natural antiperspirants, you can find rock crystals in the majority of health stores. Rock crystals can neutralize odour from sweat by inhibiting the growth of bacteria.
If you are a person who perspires excessively, opt for products that are specifically designed for the condition. You can choose sweat block pads. These are cloths that have been pre-soaked in industrial strength antiperspirant that you apply once every seven days to your underarm. Doing so will prevent perspiration. Another alternative is the use of underarm sweat pads. These pads will stick to your skin to form a barrier between your skin and clothing so that sweat will not reach your clothes.
Another way, although it might make you feel hot, is by layering. You may want to invest in sweat proof undershirts that are designed to stop sweat marks from forming on your outer clothes while keeping you cool. Sweat shield are built into the underarm of these sweat proof shirts so that sweat will not break through to the armpit of your shirt, and the fabric of the shirt is super absorbent so that no sweat mark will form on the chest and back. You can find out more about sweat proof shirts by searching on the internet.
If you wear an open collared shirt, choose an undershirt with a v neck design so that it is not visible. If you have to wear a dress shirt, choose an undershirt that has a solid color that will not be too obvious.
On really hot days, choose loose clothing that is made of natural fiber like cotton, silk, or linen. Loose clothes will allow air to circulate and for sweat to evaporate; clothes made of natural fiber will allow your skin to breathe more and so you will sweat less.
Sweating is one of our body’s natural processes that you cannot fully eliminate. By following these few simple tips, you will be enjoying summer with less sweat on your clothes.
