How to Stop Sweating Through Shirts

Thursday, 25 October 2018

With summer out of the way most of us are breathing a sigh of relief that the sweltering, endless heat has finally come to an end. Sweating is a big problem for a lot of us during summer, and having sweat stains on your shirt can cause anxiety embarrassment, and affect your work productivity.

How to Stop Sweating Through Shirts
Sweating through shirts can be prevented through a few simple steps

If you sweat a lot anyway and are still sweating through your shirt as we approach winter, it could be a sign of excessive sweating, also known hyperhidrosis. Whether you suffer from excessive sweating, want to stop sweating after a workout at the gym, or want to prepare for next summer's heat, there are many ways to stop sweating through shirts. This guide provides a number of ways to prevent sweating through your shirt, giving you confidence that lasts through the day.

How to Stop Sweating Through Shirts

Dress Appropriately

Dressing appropriately is one of the most important things you can do to stop sweating problems. The following three recommendations are ideal for preventing sweat from coming through your shirts.

Wear Lightweight Blends

Wearing lightweight blends can give your body the freedom to breathe, which in turn minimises signs of sweating. It's recommended that you avoid tight clothes, while wearing shirts designed from materials such as linen and cotton.

Go Natural and Go Dark

Two other pieces of advice are to buy natural clothes and clothes that are darker. Shirts that are blue or black can conceal sweat coming through, while natural materials are healthier on the skin, more comfortable, and act as sweat barriers.

Wear Pads and Liners

Wearing things underneath your clothes can help to prevent sweating. A vest adds an extra layer for sweat to seep through, while pads, liners and blockers can be used to prevent your shirt becoming stained. One thing we would recommend is SweatBlock Antiperspirant Pads, which are pre-soaked in a strong antiperspirant solution and provide sweating relief for up to 6.4 days, ideal for hyperhidrosis, nervous sweating and menopausal swearing.

Another solution to this problem is the Belly Bandit Don't Sweat It Bra Liner. If you're a woman who suffers from under-breast perspiration, then this works by blocking sweat from reaching your shirt. Highly comfortable, the liner is designed with bamboo viscose material that blocks sweat even during more strenuous activities.

Wear High-Quality Antiperspirant

Another option is to use high-standard antiperspirant. If your usual antiperspirant isn't working, there are options out there for more severe cases of hyperhidrosis. Perspi do a fantastic range of products that are designed specifically for people who sweat too much, ideal for preventing you from sweating through your shirt.

Perspi Spray

The Perspi Guard Sensitive Aluminium Free Antiperspirant is designed to counteract and treat excessive sweating, suitable for use across the entire body. Working the same way as botox injection do, this sweatblocking product blocks the mechanism that releases sweat from the body.

Perspi Wipes

If wipes are more your thing, you can wipe your high sweat areas with the Perspi Guard Maximum Strength Antiperspirant Wipes, which use a special formula to prevent sweat from being produced. They are suitable for use just once a day, and they are far easier to apply than sprays or creams.

Perspi Body Wash

Finally, the Perspi Guard Antibacterial Body Wash works by fighting bacteria on the skin that causes unpleasant body odour, before cleansing the skin. Gentle and soft, the body wash is used specifically for hyperhidrosis and bromhidrosis.

For the ultimate sweat-blocking product you could always use the Perspi Guard Sweat Defence System, compromised of the antiperspirant and the body wash. Promising to offer long-lasting results, this system is ideal if you're concerned about sweating through your shirt.

Eat Well

Once you've got your clothes and antiperspirant sorted, the last thing you might want to look at is your diet. Learn what foods are a trigger for you, while following recommended guidelines about what you can and can't eat when it comes to food.

Stay Healthy

Sugar, salt, fats and high-carb foods are all on the no-go list. Fatty foods with a high sugar content such as chocolate can increase sweat due to their thermic effect while carbohydrates are known to cause sweating not too long after eating them. Foods that are high in protein can cause the body to dispose of urea through sweating.

What Do You Drink?

Alcohol can increase your heart rate and dilute the blood vessels in your skin, which increases body heat meaning that your natural body cooling system (sweating) kicks in. So if you like to have a pint with your lunch then we'd recommend against it. Other things that we'd recommend avoiding include hot drinks, and avoiding caffeine entirely.

Spicy Foods

Our last recommendation is to stay away from spicy foods. Spicy foods fool your body into thinking that its core temperature is on the rise, so it starts to look after itself and triggers the body cooling system once again. Spicy foods to avoid include:

  • Chillies
  • Curries
  • Spicy hot wings
  • Wasabi
  • Peppers

Tackle Sweating Now

You can tackle sweating through your work shirts quickly by wearing the appropriate clothes. Remember that the best way to tackle sweat patches it to tackle sweating itself. We have plenty of products well suited to preventing Excess Sweating on our website.
