Thigh Sweat/Chest Sweat

sweat solutions

Dear women of the world:

How do you do it? How do you walk five blocks in July’s midday sun and not break out into a sweat? How do you trek to Starbucks in a tailored suit and not lose nine lattes in weight? Do you get Botox to stop sweating? Does it hurt?

When you stand up at an afternoon ballgame game, why don’t the back of your thighs stick to the seats? Do you mix antiperspirant with lotion, and rub the mixture on your legs? Do you use Suave’s spray formula? I hear that may help.

Tell me, when the temperature reads 90 and your chest doesn’t glisten, how is that possible? Are you prepping your skin with powder? Do you stick to a classic like Johnson’s Baby Powder, and does it remind you of childhood?

Have you found a natural deodorant that actually works?

At a weekday engagement, when there’s no time to stop home and quickly change, how do you stay so fresh? Do stash Paper Shower in your desk for occasions like that? Is there an atomizer in your bag to smell smart?

And when all else fails, do you carry tissues in your pouch and bring them everywhere you go, just in case? Or is that just me?

    I’m gonna be following this comment thread for sure!! I’ve got hyperhydrosis and literally have to choose the tops I wear carefully for fear of the dreaded “sweaty pitters.” My doc said Botox is the answer, but I’m wary of injecting a bacteria into myself. (And the cost I hear, is ridiculous.) I’ve tried Dry-Sol, which really works but makes your pits (and hands in my case) really itchy. I’m hoping for more comments/solutions!

      Hi Hillary,

      I’ve never heard of Dry-Sol, I’ll look into it. And let me know if you come up with any other non-Botox sweat solutions!

      Hi there! Actually I’ve tried Perspirex for a while now (also have tried Drysol) but this one is more soft on my skin, it doesn’t get itchy (be sure of not having wet hands/pits when applying it, otherwise it gets itchy crazy!) but you need to use it around 2-3 times a week while Drysol in my case was only once a week.

      Here’s the link on perspirex if you need it:

    I also am weary of botox injections so I started using Donna K’s Cashmere Mist Deodorant. I read about it in a few beauty mags and have also read about it on a few blogs so I went to Nordstrom, plunked down the $15 and decided to give it a try. I am a HEAVY sweater and so far so good! I too would have to have pit guards in my blazers and steer clear of silk blouses in summer for fear of sopping wet pits and this deodorant has been a God send.

    What a relevant post! I’ve been using regular old Johnson’s baby powder in this weather and its been pretty good. Keeping a travel size in your purse is helpful. It doesn’t help with sweating much, but lime juice is a great natural deorderizer that works wonderfully.

    • admin says:

      Thanks, Portia!. I’ve never heard about using lime juice. It doesn’t make you sticky?

      • Portia says:

        You have to use lime juice in the shower. As my mom would say, “Make sure you bathe with lime.” Cut a wedge and squeeze under your arms.

    I discovered this company years ago called La Bouquietiere. They make a line called Exquises Temptations which includes rice powders. My favorite is the Violette de Paris the recipe for the powder originated I believe in the 15th century. For me it is a summer must. I sprinkle or rub it on and it helps to absorb the sweat.
