Hello, I’m Pookah and I’m sweaty. I don’t mean some damp spots under the arms - when it’s hot and humid, which it often is where I live, I literally drip on even the slightest exertion. I don’t particularly smell bad, but I get a bit frustrated looking like a drowned kitten form June to October.
So I’m looking for sweat management tips - any ways, products or tactics my fellow sweaty Betties (m/f) have found to feel a bit dryer or at least look less of a damp mess.
For example, I recently discovered the African/Mediterranean classic of turbans and headscarves - keeps sweat out of eyes, sun off head, and covers and distracts from frazzled, damp locks. Obviously, it has to be your style, but it works quite well for me.
For body sweat I tried talcum and other powders (from Lush) but found they stain my body and leave white residue everywhere without doing anything noticeable for the sweat situation. Anti-perspirants do help, but are not a great solution as I am sweaty anywhere, not just my armpits.
Any ideas or experiences? I mean, it’s not something that ruins my day, but I wouldn’t mind any helpful suggestions
