Tips / Travel

Traveling to exotic locales often means contending with unusual weather. Americans tend to enjoy a fairly moderate climate, which means your body doesn’t always adapt when you head to places like Africa or South America. So, how do you keep yourself from sweating and stinking up a new city? Try these tips.



Exercise seems to be the solution to most problems. In this case, your body can acclimate faster to warmer climates through physical activity. Spend one to two hours jogging or engaging in a sport when traveling and you’ll find yourself sweating less, sooner.


Dress Properly

It should go without saying, but how you dress can definitely impact how much you sweat. Opt for lightweight, loose clothing when you’re in a warmer climate. Light colors can also help by absorbing less heat.


Control Your Diet

Your diet plays a large role in your body’s production of sweat. Alcohol, sugar and spicy food can all increase the amount of moisture under your arms. Instead, stick with water and mild spices when on the move.


Use Sweat Guards

Antiperspirants can go a long way in helping to reduce sweat, but aren’t always enough. If you’re afraid of unsightly armpits or dampness in other areas, use sweat guards to help block it from reaching your clothes. Many of these come in the form of patches that go under your arms, or you can get powder for between your thighs and groin area.
