Feeling the heat? Here are some quick tips to avoid the ‘sweaty’ look!

No-one wants to be caught out with sweat patches during this heat so we’ve put together these quick tips on how to avoid them!

1. Cut the coffee out

Caffeine activates neurotransmitters in your brain called acetylcholines that stimulate sweat glands so the best solution is to stick to peppermint tea.

2. Avoid pastels

Pale blue is the one colour that shows up sweat the most. Dark colours hide sweat patches however they also absorb the heat. Bold patterns such as check on a white background are best.

3. Spray at night

Applying antiperspirant to clean armpits in the evening allows the antiperspirant to plug into your sweat glands.

4. Flush it out

If you’ve got a sweat stain, pop to the bathroom and rinse it with cold water. Don’t use hot water as this will set the stain. Then hold the garment under the hand dryer for a couple of minutes… problem solved!
