Summer is one of the favorite seasons for most women. But, when the temperatures start to rise, the body starts to sweat more, which can cause a fashion disaster. Here, we have presented you with some summer hacks to prevent sweat and avoid a fashion disaster. Don’t miss them!
1. Keep your clothes loose
One of the ways to prevent sweat during hot summer days is to keep your clothing loose. The less fabric you have actually touching your body, the more comfortable you will be. And, the less your body will sweat. So, when choosing your hot summer days outfits try to include looser pieces of clothes in it. For example, you will definitely sweat less when wearing a flowy maxi dress compared to writing a pair of shorts.
2. Skip the padded bra in favor of a soft, unlined bralette
If you want to prevent sweat during summer, the crucial thing is to choose the right underwear. That means choosing the right material that the underwear is made of. When it comes to the bra you wear, the best is to choose a soft and unlined bralette. Try to avoid wearing a padded bra, because there is nothing that produces extra sweating more than the combo of three inches of foam padding and a hot summer day.
3. Avoid embellishments — particularly heavy embellishments like beading or anything made of metal.
Embellishments, especially heavy ones like beads or metals are something you must avoid if you want to prevent sweat during summer. They tend to weigh down your clothes so they come closer to your body’s skin. This makes your body produce extra sweat. So, try a better solution for summer looks. One thing that you can try is to wear patterned garments instead of embellished ones they will add the same kind of interest to your outfit, and you will feel more comfortable.
4. Leave your backpack at home in favor of a small crossbody or tote
Wearing a huge backpack to your back or a gigantic tote to your side can make you extra sweat. So, in order to prevent sweat, the best is to wear a small crossbody bag or a handbag.
5. Wear socks
6. Cover up to protect your skin from the sun and keep the cool
7. Wear as little jewelry as a possible
If possible, avoid wearing jewelry during summer if you want to prevent sweat. You can keep wearing earrings because they don’t really touch your skin too much. But, you should definitely avoid wearing necklaces, bracelets, or rings because they touch your body skin more and that causes more trouble when the temperatures rise. The lightweight chain sticks to the skin, the heavy necklaces trap your shirt against the chest, metals get hot and bracelets cover the wrist. That can cause your body to sweat more, so avoid wearing them.
8. Stick to light colors
Dark colors absorb light and make you feel too hot. On the other hand, light colors reflect the light making you feel cooler. So, the best thing to do in order to prevent sweat is to avoid wearing dark-colored clothes. Keep wearing lighter clothing when the temperatures start to rise.
9. Only wear unlined jackets, skirts, and dresses
10. Choose clothes from natural fabrics
In order to prevent sweat when the temperatures start to rise extremely high, the best is to wear clothes made of natural fabrics. The best choice is, of course, cotton. It is a more breathable fabric than polyester or rayon, for example. That makes it a fabric that absorbs sweat better than any other material. Also, it makes the sweat dry faster, which means that you won’t feel sweaty as long as you would if you wear clothes made from synthetic fabric.
11. Avoid flimsy fabrics if you don’t want your clothes to stick to your body
12. Take a nice, hot shower to lower your body temperature, and wash off any dirt and dead skin cells that could be making you hotter.
13. Make sure your clothes are as fresh and clean as you are
14. Bring shade with you wherever you go by wearing a wide-brimmed hat or carrying a lightweight, woven scarf in your bag.
15. Layer with open-weave knits
16. Use a scarf to keep your hair off your neck
Your hair definitely causes too much sweating especially if you wear it down. So, in order to prevent sweat, we recommend you keep your hair off your neck during summer. One way to do it is to use a small cotton scarf or a bandana and tie your hair with it. Another way to prevent sweat is to use the same cotton scarf and wear it around the neck when you wear the hair down. Also, you can soak the scarf in cold water before you put it on the neck. That will give you an extra-cooling kick.
