Sweaty armpits can be embarrassing, but they also seem almost unavoidable when you have to move around a lot outdoors and with how hot Lagos gets, there is a tendency for you to even sweat from areas you didn’t know you could.
While we don’t have any solution to stop your body from actually producing sweat, we have a couple of tips that make it way less obvious that it is.
- Get an antiperspirant. Before throwing your regular deodorant into your shopping basket the next time you go shopping, find out whether or not the particular brand is an antiperspirant. While regular deodorants stop your armpits from stinking up, they don’t help with the sweat.
- Get a lighter moisturizer and sunscreen. Some moisturizers are too heavy for you to wear when the sun is blazing down, So get a light moisturizer that gets absorbed by your skin once you put it on without leaving a greasy residue behind.
- Wear clothes that allow your skin breathe. Loose flowy styles made out of materials like lightweight cotton, are great for the weather, Avoid too tight clothes, they’ll only make you sweat more.
- Check your diet. A lot of people find that what they eat and drink causes them to sweat more, things like coffee and garlic have been rumoured to be culprits.
