how to prevent sweating through shirts

Most of us have experienced the sticky warning signs on a hot day, letting us know that we are starting to sweat through our clothes. Once your sweat becomes visible on your clothing, it can become uncomfortable and embarrassing. Luckily there are a few lifestyle changes you can make to prevent sweat marks. Keep reading for our five tips on how to stop sweating through shirts.

How to Prevent Sweating through Shirts

1. Wear a Sweat Proof Undershirt

Our first tip on how to not sweat through shirts is to start with a protective base, like an Ejis sweat proof undershirt (buy on our shop or on Amazon). Our undershirts are specifically designed for people who suffer from excessive sweating. The dual protection of an ultra-thin waterproof layer and odor-fighting silver make these undershirts your best defense against sweat marks and body odor. They are available in three styles, three colors, two premium fabrics, and two areas of protection (full back and underarms, or underarms only).

2. Use a Clinical Strength Antiperspirant

Another simple way to prevent sweating through shirts is to use clinical strength antiperspirant. An antiperspirant is a topical treatment used to stop sweat with aluminum compounds that coat (and plug) the sweat glands. A clinical strength antiperspirant is the strongest product you can buy without a prescription.

For best results, apply the antiperspirant on clean and dry skin before you go to bed. By putting on the antiperspirant before you go to sleep, you allow it to kick into action before you start sweating. You may also want to shave your armpits to ensure the antiperspirant makes direct contact with your skin.

3. Assess Your Diet

Did you know that some types of food and drink can actually trigger sweat? It may take a little experimenting to work out your personal sweat friends or foes. But it’s well worth the effort if the goal is to prevent sweating through your clothes. Generally, avoid foods and beverages that raise your body’s temperature and slow your digestive process. Examples include coffee, alcohol, spicy foods, processed foods, and foods high in sugar. We suggest keeping a food journal to help you identify the foods that make you sweat.

4. Wear Breathable Fabrics

Another idea on how to stop sweating through shirts is to wear breathable fabrics. Substitute synthetic garments for natural fabrics, such as cotton and linen, that provide more ventilation and allow sweat to evaporate. Although switching up your wardrobe may mean making an investment now, a drier and more confident future is money well spent. It’s also worth considering the color choice of your breathable fabrics; bold patterns can hide a multitude of sins while navy, black and white tend to reduce the appearance of sweat stains.

Avoid foods and drinks that raise your body’s temperature and slow your digestive process.

5. Reduce Your Stress

Finally, when learning how to prevent sweating through shirts, stress management can play a bigger role than expected. Anxiety and stress can trigger your body’s fight-or-flight reaction, which results in intense sweat production.

To help combat sweat, incorporate simple breathing exercises or meditation into your daily routine. If you don’t know where to start, look for online resources and apps you can download to guide you through it. Another tried and true way to relieve stress (and reduce sweat) is with regular exercise. While the fitness activity causes you to sweat, it actually helps your body better maintain its sweat reaction during non-active times.

Use the suggestions in this article to help you reduce sweat marks so you can enjoy a drier, more confident day... and be sure to wear an Ejis sweat proof undershirt to protect your shirts from sweat marks and stains.
