Do I sweat more in the winter?

Do I sweat more in the winter?

I ask this as I’m sweating from my toes to my nose in the middle of December!

People tell me they sweat less in the winter but I beg to differ. I’m just as active as in the warmer months, but I’m wearing much warmer things and lugging around a heavy coat. Being the inquisitive person that I am, I wanted to see what I could do to minimize my sweating.


FYI- I’m a sweater!! I sweat everywhere, with the back of my neck being the worst. 

Here are some tips I found:

  1. Wear layers- Take them off when going inside. You can wear your sweater around your waist or shoulders for a preppy, chic look.
  2. Yoga- Yes yoga! Actually, exercise in general. It keeps stress and anxiety down so you are not stress sweating, which is the worst!
  3. Wear puffy vests and large scarves versus the gigantic parka (weather permitting of course)- I have a large scarf that I use as a wrap, pillow, hat and yes just as a scarf instead of a 5lb wool jacket.
  4. Witch hazel- Great for constricting your pores to minimize sweat (great toner for your face as well). It can be found in our Everywhere Deodorant Sprays. It’s a must have for any travel. You’ll thank me later after that 1st smelly taxi or uber ride.
  5. Avoid spicy food and caffeine- They actually make you sweat more! So switch to our next tip.
  6. Green Tea – It contains magnesium and vitamin b which constrict your sweat glands and keep you calm.

Hope this helps, and remember: Sweaty is good, stinky is bad!

Find your FREEDOM!
