Wear the Right Material

You can work fight against sweat by wearing the right type of clothes and this is the truth! Clothing that are made of natural fabrics such as cotton, wool, hemp, silk and linen have what we call a looser weave that the synthetics.

Also, these fabrics are made of such fibers that they absorb moisture well and also prevent bacteria from feeding on your sweat which causes the stink. So avoid synthetic fabrics, nylon, rayon and polyester.

In the end you must remember that only pigs sweat, humans, we perspire. Get busy and change the sweatiness.
