How to Stop Nervous Sweating

We're on a mission to show our underarms some love, in partnership with Dove Antiperspirant Deodorant.

First date, important meeting, job interview . . . these situations are stressful enough, and the last thing you want is to be worrying about that little bit of extra dampness when you're nervous or anxious! Involuntary sweating can be awkward, but the good news is, it can be stopped. Firstly, it's important to understand that stress sweat is not the same as exercise sweat. The perspiration you feel after an intense workout or on a hot day is thermal sweat (i.e., your body's reaction to heating up) and serves an effective purpose: keeping your body cool. Stress sweat is not thermal, and needs to be addressed accordingly. Keep scrolling to learn how to put an end to sticky situations once and for all!
