It's summertime and the living is sweaty.

July 29, 2015

 

It's summertime and the living is sweaty. Just one step outside, and you're at the mercy of the sun and her harsh rays. Whether you're dodging in and out of your car or the train during the morning commute or hitting the pavement for a major cardio sesh, summer sweat is inevitable. Luckily the beauty world has given us a bevy of products to beat summer's unwanted gift. There's just about any scent of underarm deodorant or antiperspirant you can imagine, a whole category of facial powders meant to hide that forehead shine, dry shampoo to soak up sweaty strands — and finally — blotting sheets, the beauty gods' gift to makeup wearers.

But there's another form of sweat many women fall prey to: boob sweat. Yes, actual beads of sweat running in the boobage area are a real concern for many, especially women with larger cup sizes. But unsightly sweat stains aren't the only reason to dread boob sweat. Chafing is a real, sometimes painful, result of a sweat attack where skin repeatedly rubs together, and it's incredibly common around the breast area and further enhanced when skin is not properly ventilated. (That's right, airing the girls out is a good idea.) Thankfully, for boob sweat-sufferers, there are a number of products on the market to make soaking-wet bras and embarrassing sweat marks a thing of the past.

Liners aren't just for skirts and bikini tops anymore. A whole series of bra liners have hit the market to help soak up breast sweat and keep discomfort at arm's length. Belly Bandit's Don't Sweat It ($19.95) and Wick'Em Bra Liner ($19.95) are two products designed to fit discreetly underneath the bottom of the bra. Both contain portions that lie between the breasts and absorb cleavage moisture, as well. A third type of liner option comes from Persper-eez and targets underboob sweat. The Breast Sweat Pads ($8.25) are one-time use adhesive liners that stick to the under portion of the breast to wick away sweat.

Just as deodorant is a savior for underarms, it's also a good way to keep the girls' sweat at bay. And now boob deodorant is a thing.Fresh Body's Fresh Breasts ($11.99), an odorless lotion that dries into a powder, can be applied daily for optimum sweat absorption. But for those looking for a specific scent, there are a number of scented boob deodorants available from the Etsy shop, Boobalicious. We won't lie — we're intrigued by Lickable Lemons ($8.95).

For more a traditional take on sweat absorption, powder is always a good call. Klima offers Bust Dust ($19.95), an antiperspirant powder for the chest and breasts, which claims to prevents odor and block sweat from exiting skin. Although not specifically designed to soak up sweat, Lush's Silky Underwear Dusting Powder ($7.95) does offer a sensual jasmine scent while banishing body grease (and who doesn't like that?).

And finally, for those ladies obsessed with facial wipes: Deodorant wipes are equally addicting and can be used all over. Yes, even the chest. Ban's Total Refresh Cooling Body Cloths ($2.99) offer instant relief from sweat thanks to a cooling sensation, whileDERMAdoctor MED e TATE antiperspirant wipes ($48) not only swipe away sweat but are formulated with real antiperspirant ingredients to control sweat.
