Nervous Sweating & Ways To Stop



When you sweat from anxiety it can be an experience throughout the whole-body. A single thought or certain environment triggers your nervous system, resulting in nervous sweats that can stress you out even more and you’re not even hot. It doesn’t have to be this way though.


There are several techniques to stop sweating due to anxiety or nervousness. Deep breaths, drinking water and listening to soft music will calm your body down, slow your heart rate and reduce nervous sweats. Don't let perspiration get the best of you. Below we present some techniques.

1. TAKE DEEP BREATHS

Take a deep breath. Hold for a few seconds and release. Repeat. Deep breathing will slow your heart rate and help stop your nervous sweats. If you concentrate on the situation this only makes you more anxious and sweaty. Calming yourself down will stop or at the very least reduce the sweating. We encourage you to try this technique.

2. STAYING HYDRATED

Hydration is very important for anyone whether they sweat excessively or not. A lack of water tells your body to sweat more to help cool you down. This is a natural process from our bodies. Heavy stress can also dry out your mouth, so be sure to drink enough water before a stressful or anxious situation to prevent excessive sweating and annoying dry mouth.

3. AVOID COMMON SWEAT TRIGGERS

Hot and spicy foods should definitely be a non-no, smoking or drinking lots of alcohol can cause you to sweat more than normal. Avoid these common sweat triggers before a nerve-racking situation to ward off the sweats. Certain medications and even coffee can cause you to sweat so avoid these also whenever possible.

4. WEAR A KLEINERT’S UNDERSHIRT

An easy way to keep nervous sweats from showing through your dress shirt is by using one of our sweatproof undershirts. Kleinert’s integrated sweat shields completely absorb sweat and allow it to evaporate, so sweat doesn’t reach your outer layer. By wearing a Kleinert’s Sweatproof Undershirt beneath your dress shirts, you'll forget you're sweating, you will stay dry and no more sweat stains visible on your shirts. A win-win in our book.


5. PUT ON ANTIPERSPIRANT AT BEDTIME

Your antiperspirant can work harder by applying it before bedtime. Nighttime is actually the most effective time to apply antiperspirant because it allows the active ingredient aluminum time to block your sweat glands while you rest. Your morning shower won’t wash off the antiperspirant. Our Sweat Shield Ultra Antiperspirant Wipes are an effective solution and are waterproof thru showering and may last up to 1 week on the area applied.

6. CHOOSING THE RIGHT BREATHABLE MATERIALS

Always opt for natural fabrics like cotton or bamboo. High-quality cotton is more breathable and repels heat better than synthetic fabrics like polyester. Important to note that the quality of the cotton can affect the shirt’s breathability.

By trying the steps above before and during stressful situations can help stop nervous sweating. Staying hydrated, deep breathing and distraction techniques will bring your body temperature down, slow your heart rate and stop anxious sweating.

Save Your Shirts From Sweat Stains




When underarm sweat starts to wreak havoc on your clothes and confidence, you need a solution and fast. No one wants to spend hundreds of dollars replacing or constantly dry cleaning expensive shirts. This is where dress shields can help. Sweat is an unavoidable fact of life. We all sweat in one form or the other. Now during these hot summer months we don’t need sweltering temperatures nor stress to get us down.


What Are Dress Shields?

Dress shields are a form of underarm sweat pad that can be applied to your body or shirt to absorb armpit sweat. There are a few ways they can be attached:

Sew it into your shirt
Stick it directly to your shirt via special tape
Pin or snap it to your shirt
Directly Against Skin


When looking for dress shields or a similar sweat-blocking alternative, there are a few important questions to ask:

1. Does it contain sweat-blocking materials? Natural fibers like cotton and bamboo soak up moisture so it doesn’t show through your shirt.
2. How does it attach? Always find out what you’ll need to attach the dress shield to your body or shirt before purchasing.
3. How much area do they cover? Matching the size of your dress shield to your armpit area can be tricky. Do your research to find the appropriate size.
4. Are they reusable or disposable?  While most dress shields can be washed and worn multiple times, some are disposable. If you're looking for long-term use, verify that it's reusable.

WILL DRESS SHIELDS REALLY WORK?

Dress shields actually date back to the mid 1800s. Kleinert’s was the inventor of the first Dress Shield. While dress shields typically work best for the everyday use the way they work can depend on some factors.

Positioning for one, the way you attach it, etc. You may need to try a few ways before you settle on a method that works best for you. Some dress shields are made for a light-moderate sweater and others are made for people who sweat more heavily.  


A GREAT ALTERNATIVE:
KLEINERT’S SWEATPROOF UNDERSHIRTS


Instead of attaching a loose dress shield to your clothes, Kleinert’s offers an alternative to sweat protection our sweatproof undershirts for men and women.

Containing underarm sweat shields which contain 4 layers this system traps heat and moisture and allows it to evaporate rather than seep through your clothes. Because the sweat proof properties are native (not made with chemical treatments found in many water-repelling fabrics), they won’t wash off over time.

Unlike a dress shield which may or may not stay in place, Kleinert’s sweat proof technology stays put throughout the day, so you don’t have to reposition the pad or worry whether it’s visible to others. Most importantly, you eliminate embarrassing wet marks and pit stains to your fine garments.

Factors That Influence How Much You Sweat



Sweating is most often associated with heat. You do sweat when exposed to high temperatures to help cool down. As sweat evaporates from your skin, it takes body heat away with it, producing a cooling effect thru thermoregulation.

Temperature alone will not influence how much you sweat or where. Below are 5 underlying factors behind your sweat:


1. DNA 

Some people sweat more in certain areas than others. Much of this is due in part to your DNA. Some individuals start to sweat in a particular area like their hands, feet or underarms because those particular glands react to the brain's signal first. This is also known as a Predisposition to sweating. Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) is a hereditary condition influenced by your genes. 


2. BODY WEIGHT

People that are leaner (skinny) tend to handle sweat more efficiently and handle heat better than overweight individuals. Fat acts as an insulator and because of this people with excess fat may feel hotter, sweat more profusely and take longer to cool down than a leaner person.


3. DISTRIBUTION OF SWEAT GLANDS

The way your sweat glands are placed also shapes how you sweat. Your body contains roughly 2 to 5 million sweat glands located all across the body, which consist of two types: eccrine & apocrine.


Eccrine glands reside in pores and produce sweat that is odorless and is composed of salt and water to help cool the skin. Apocrine glands typically end in hair follicles (rather than pores) and secrete a milky type fluid that becomes odorous when mixed with bacteria on the skin. If you sweat excessively in one particular area, you could have a higher concentration of eccrine glands there.


4. PHYSICAL FITNESS

Your body temperature will rise when you're active, so the more intense, the more you sweat. It is important to note that two people of a similar size can finish the same workout and sweat totally differently. It is true.


As endurance builds up, your body becomes more proficient at sweating to keep you cool. Athletes for example sweat sooner and more heavily than untrained people because they have a higher maximum oxygen uptake which is a measure of cardiovascular fitness and aerobic endurance.


5. ACCLIMATIZATION

This is the process of adjusting to environmental temperatures. When you regularly spend time in the heat, you become more acclimated to the temperature and sweat more efficiently.


The ability to sweat is advantageous as it keeps you from overheating during a tough workout. Still, sweating excessively and spontaneously regardless of the temperature or physical activity can take a big toll on your life.


Our  Kleinert’s Sweatproof Undershirts completely absorb sweat while allowing it to evaporate. No more embarrassing wet marks or yellow stains shown by the underarms.

Excessive Underarm Sweating Causes You Didn’t Know About




You expect to sweat during a hard work out on a sweltering summer day or after a long day at the office with a broken A/C. It’s no surprise that you’re sticky and uncomfortable. 

But then there are other instances when for example you’re about to give a presentation at work when suddenly, despite the chilly room, your palms get sopping wet. Or, when you take a bite of spicy chicken and immediately feel your face flush and get hot.

WHAT ELSE CAUSES SWEATING?

Sweat is triggered by other factors than just exercise and heat. These include your diet, what you drink and your environment. Below we present some excessive underarm sweating causes you did not know about. 

Caffeine.  

In the U.S. 80% of American adults consume caffeine every day, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Caffeine stimulates the brain and nervous system, which causes sweating. The temperature inside the caffeinated beverage may also cause a spike in your body temperature and momentarily cause you to sweat. 

Medical Condition.

A medical condition is where one area of your body sweats profusely. Besides hyperhidrosis, excessive sweating can also indicate a larger medical issue such as a warning sign of thyroid problems, side effects of medication, obesity, diabetes or infection. 

Anxious Sweats.  

Anxious situations, like a first job interview, public speaking, a big presentation or meeting new people for the first time, trigger your body’s response, causing you to sweat. 

Diet.  

Spicy foods, such as curry, sugary desserts and even chocolate (high sugar and caffeine content) can all trigger your nervous system and cause sweating.  

More Exercise.

Working out more may cause you to think that your body will adapt and sweat less. That is simply not the case. A fit person will start sweating earlier and heavier during a workout. It may sound strange but the more a person exercises, the more efficient their body is at regulating temperature. When you start to sweat earlier, your body cools down faster thus allowing you to work out harder for longer. 

WHAT TO DO ABOUT EXCESSIVE UNDERARM SWEATING CAUSES.

Sweating is a necessary part of daily life. How much a person sweats is an unique combination of their environment, gender, genetics, age and even fitness level. As your body temperature fluctuates, your nervous system works to regulate it so you don’t overheat. 

Although important, sweating isn’t always convenient. No spicy foods to enjoy, your morning coffee, trying to make it through the job interview without sweating through your shirt. That’s where Kleinert’s comes in. Our undershirts have an effective, comfortable, patented sweat proof barrier built into the underarms. The Dry zone technology absorbs sweat and releases vapor, letting sweat escape without anyone seeing it. 

Is Excessive Underarm Sweating A Serious Issue?



A stressful job interview, public speaking, moving heavy boxes. etc. Your body will sweat throughout the day. It’s healthy and necessary for our well-being through thermoregulation. 

What happens though when you start to sweat too much? What are the symptoms of excessive underarm sweating? Should it be a cause for concern?

EXCESSIVE SWEATING SYMPTOMS

There are instances where our bodies sweat too much, for no apparent reason.
Some symptoms of excessive sweating include:


Clammy or wet palms and feet
Sweating that soaks through clothing & shows stains
Daily or weekly sweating episodes
Sweaty Face & Scalp Dripping


WHEN HYPERHIDROSIS IS SERIOUS



Excessive Sweating also known as Hyperhidrosis isn’t a life-threatening condition. However, it can indicate a larger health problem.

There are two types of hyperhidrosis: primary and secondary hyperhidrosis. Primary hyperhidrosis is a medical condition where people experience excessive sweating typically in the hands, armpits or feet.


Secondary hyperhidrosis is caused by a reaction to a medication or medical condition. The causes of secondary hyperhidrosis vary widely. It can be a reaction to a prescription or even a dietary supplement. It can also indicate a larger health problem including anxiety, rheumatoid arthritis, heart failure or diabetes.


Signs of secondary hyperhidrosis include:
Night Sweats
No one else in your family sweats as heavily
Sweating occurs all over your body or in large areas
New or Unusual Sweating

Make sure to speak with your doctor about any excessive sweating symptoms you experience.


MANAGING EXCESSIVE SWEATING SYMPTOMS



For people who suffer from axillary (underarm) hyperhidrosis, it can affect the quality of daily life, be embarrassing and frustrating. There are many different ways to manage your sweating and we’ve done the research, from the Deodorants and Clinical Antiperspirants to Underarm Sweat Pads, Sweatproof Undershirts and Sweatproof Underwear.

Managing your sweat can be difficult. That’s why we created and sell Kleinert’s Sweatproof Undershirts. They are patented, sweat proof undershirts that trap moisture and release it as vapor. They are designed specifically for excessive sweating and hyperhidrosis by incorporating sewn-in sweat shields that absorb sweat and stop embarrassing sweat stains and give you back the confidence to go about your daily life. Try one today.

Avoiding Sweaty Armpits & Gain Back Confidence


Having sweaty armpits is unpleasant. It is not only the staining of your clothing but also the excessive wetness can be very uncomfortable. Trying to hide embarrassing sweat marks constantly can be a stressful blow to your confidence. Here are ways to avoid getting sweaty armpits.

FIND THE RIGHT ANTIPERSPIRANT.

It’s important to know the difference between deodorant and antiperspirant if you’re trying to avoid getting sweaty armpits. Deodorants will not stop sweating they merely mask the smell by killing bacteria that causes body odor. Antiperspirants contain aluminum which clogs your sweat ducts and tells your glands to stop producing sweat.

APPLY ANTIPERSPIRANT CORRECTLY.

If over-the-counter options don’t stop your sweaty pits, there are also clinical-strength antiperspirants you can purchase such as Kleinerts Sweat Shield Ultra or Dry Body Antiperspirant Wipes. Follow the instructions carefully as these antiperspirants require you apply them at night before bedtime. You may need to use them for a few days before you see results. Antiperspirants block your sweat ducts, essentially drying out your sweat. This can be irritating if you have sensitive skin. Take your time, speak with your doctor and find the antiperspirant that is right for you.

WEAR A LAYER OF PROTECTION.

Sweaty armpits are embarrassing. Avoid getting sweaty armpits with a sweatproof undershirt like Kleinert’s. The sewn-in sweat shields with Dry Zone technology traps sweat and then it evaporates, stopping your sweat at the source and eliminating those annoying sweat stains.

MANAGE YOUR STRESS.

Sweaty armpits are also triggered by stress. Find methods you can use to reduce stress and manage the symptoms before you start sweating. Exercise is also one of the best ways to reduce stress and regulate your body, and maintaining a healthy weight can help reduce sweating. They say deep breathing can also help.

AVOID TRIGGER FOODS.

Certain food and beverages can make sweating worse. Spicy foods, caffeine and energy drinks can all trigger your sweat glands. Learn how your body reacts to certain foods and avoid them altogether if they ramp up the sweating in your body. Believe us you do not want to be in a presentation or public gathering and all this excessive sweating starts to occur. 


We would love to get feedback and any other ways how to avoid sweaty armpits.

Men Sweat More Than Women

Men Sweat More Than Women & What Can Be Done About It


Men are known for being the smellier, sweatier sex. But is this really true? We tackled the question of why men sweat more than women.

A study was conducted measuring the sweat rate and sweat gland activity of 37 men and women, the answer is yes. In the study, men and women of a similar weight cycled at varying intensities for an hour while perspiration was measured on their forehead, chest, back, forearm and thighs. 


Men and women who were trained and not trained in cycling accounted for the sweating impact of physical endurance. The women had just as many sweat glands activated during the workout but the results revealed that men are more efficient sweaters than women sweating more heavily and at a lower temperature. It's important to understand what these differences mean and how to deal with your sweating or lack-there-of.


WHY MEN SWEAT MORE THAN WOMEN


Different factors influence how much sweat men and women produce like weight, level of physical fitness, temperature and genetics. Women have just as many active sweat glands as men but they produce more sweat per gland than women do this is why men sweat more.

Men tend to also be heavier and have more muscle mass. When there is an increase in mass it produces more heat when working out, causing men to sweat more. Your sweat rate depends on how many sweat glands your body activates and the volume of sweat produced by each.
 


But there are other factors at play. The study monitored participants while they exercised; it also shed light on how physical endurance influences sweat rates for both men and women.

It’s important to know what the ability to sweat says about your body. Your endurance level also dictates how well you take the heat.

As you become fit, you begin sweating at a lower temperature to anticipate the intense workout you’re about to endure and better regulate internal temperature. It’s no surprise that 
the trained participants sweated considerably more than the untrained subjects of both sexes, proving that regular exercise can make you sweat more over time.

The untrained women sweated the least amount and required the highest body temperature to maximize their sweat output. As the participants worked harder, trained men experienced the biggest spike in sweating. In short, physical fitness appeared to play a dominating role in how heavily men sweated but was less influential for women. 


THEORIES BEHIND THE DISCREPANCY

It is hypothesized that men may have adapted a higher sweat response to complete daily labor more efficiently. Hormones may also affect perspiration levels. In one experiment where male athletes were injected with estrogen, they sweated less during exercise. Other studies show that boys and girls sweat around the same amount during childhood, suggesting that hormonal changes during puberty are partially to blame. When testosterone begins to circulate throughout the body, boys begin to sweat earlier and more heavily.


WHAT CAN BE DONE ABOUT Your SWEATING SITUATION

Beyond sweating more, men also begin sweating at a lower temperature than women. So when exposed to extreme heat, they’re less likely to reach the critical temperature 104 degrees and experience overheating. Women also tend to retain less body fluid than men and dehydrate more easily. 


Both men and women who suffer from hyperhidrosis sweat excessively and spontaneously regardless of sex. Use products such as Kleinert’s SweatShield Ultra Clinical Antiperspirants Wipes which can clog pores and stop sweat for up to a week, Washable or Disposable Kleinert’s Dress Shields can manage your sweating condition and save your clothes from constant washing and even Kleinert’s Sweatproof Undershirts with lined in underarm sweat shields which absorb sweat and have it evaporate. This will not allow sweat to appear on the outside of your clothes and save you from embarrassment and stress.


It’s important to know that men and women sweat differently, and neither is safe from the debilitating effects of excessive sweating. Acclimating yourself to the heat, staying hydrated and exercising regularly can help you sweat more efficiently and better cope with heat. By using Kleinert’s Sweatproof Undershirts during exercise or everyday activity, you can also keep cool while saving your clothes from wet marks & yellow stains.


Methods To Prevent Underarm Sweating




Some additional armpit sweat doesn't appear like a major ordeal. Everyone sweats right? However, when excessive sweating influences your confidence and day to day life (which could smother your upward mobility in the working environment) it's a great opportunity to make a move. Here's the manner by which to avert underarm sweating. 

The most effective method to PREVENT UNDERARM SWEATING 

Anticipating excessive underarm sweating is in itself humiliating. Feeling free from the dread of sweating helps give you confidence in  introductions, on dates and in regular interaction. 

There are a few different ways other than antiperspirant to counteract underarm sweating i.e. applying antiperspirant before bed time, wearing a sweatproof undershirt to absorb and evaporate sweat, physician endorsed medicines, overseeing stress and keeping away from specific foods that trigger your sweat glands can help. 

Excessive sweating doesn't need to control your choices.

1. APPLY ANTIPERSPIRANT AT NIGHT 

A great many people stress out over their problems with sweating. The best time to apply antiperspirant is really around bed time as your sweat glands will take in the active ingredient forming a plug and there by eliminating the problematic sweating. For best outcomes, apply to dry underarms just before bed so that by the morning you will have dry underarms. Out antiperspirant is waterproof thru showering and will last up to a week. It is also FDA approved.

2. TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR STRESS 

Stress is a noteworthy cause of underarm sweat. Agonizing over sweating adds to your daily stress level which can cause more stress. Finding ways to lessen your anxiety will enhance your psychological wellness which does also support your confidence. Stress-boosting strategies like recognizing triggers for stress, making daily schedules can clear your brain and diminish the tension related to sweating. 

3. WEAR A PROTECTIVE SWEAT SHIELD 

The most ideal approach to avoid underarm sweat is to stop it at the source. Kleinert's underarm sweat shields totally retain sweat and enable it to escape as vapor, so sweat doesn't reach your outer clothing. Since the layering enables sweat to be absorbed and then evaporate, you're not left being wet all day. 

4. PICK NATURAL FABRICS OVER WICKING 

The objective of protective garments for people who have excessive sweating is to provide the most absorbent materials possible plus provide for the body remaining as dry as possible. Kleinert's has achieved this with it's patented 4 way construction. We distinctly use highly absorbent bamboo as our absorbent internal material.

Bamboo is known to have 4 times the amount of absorbency as cotton. We prevent any remaining fluids from exiting into your outer clothing by means of a unique urethane waterproof layer which guarantees that sweat will not pass thru. Wicking fabrics are polyesters which when saturated will transfer the fluid to the outer garment or if there is no outer garment to the ambient air assuming its temperature is lower than the wearers body temperature. During that transfer process the wearer will remain wet.


5. COMMON SWEAT TRIGGERS TO AVOID

What you put in your body influences the amount you sweat. Stimulants like caffeine and liquor discharge chemicals that raise your heart rate, body temperature and pulse, making you sweat. Eating hot or fiery sustenance's and encountering stress can likewise start up your sweat glands, so in case you're stressed over sweating in unpleasant circumstances, it's best to stay away from these mystery sweat triggers. 

6. PRESCRIPTION DRUGS FOR HYPERHIDROSIS 

On the off chance that your underarms sweat unreasonably abruptly, you may have a medical condition known as axillary hyperhidrosis. For a few people, anticholinergics have appeared to viably dry out sweat glands, however they were not intended for this purpose. It's critical to comprehend the reactions of hostile sweat medicines and contact a specialist before utilizing anticholinergics to treat hyperhidrosis.

Sweat Proof Undershirt Review And Comparison

In the battle against axillary hyperhidrosis and ordinary sweating, we've been tricked by an excessive number of "wonder cures" and hyperhidrosis surgeries that simply don't work. It's important to spare individuals from spending on items that overpromise and under deliver.

1. PATENTED SWEAT PROOF TECHNOLOGY

We have spent many years of hard work (and labor) into perfecting the design of our undershirts. Using Multi-Patented Fabrapel Fabric which is water and stain repellent plus Anti-Bacterial no one will see you sweating yet you will stay cool on the inside. Our integrated sweat proof barrier shields absorb sweat using a 4 layer system. Within the layers is a comfortable nylon mesh transfer layer at the top followed by a layer of double napped cotton which absorbs perspiration. Next is a soft urethane barrier that eliminates cracking and peeling and finally a soft, cool cotton layer at the end. If you're looking for a shirt that will totally conceal underarm sweat, our undershirts with Dry Zone technology is the only sweat shield barrier verified to do the trick. 


2. SWEAT ABSORPTION

Our undershirts are not moisture-wicking like other shirts that simply push sweat outward and do not protect against embarrassing wet marks. We designed our sewn-in sweat shields to absorb sweat and keep you dry. Any sweat that is left against the skin will keep you cool and hydrated. This is a process called Thermoregulation. Our patented Fabrapel fabric will not show any sweat on the outside and not cause any embarrassment for you. These undershirts are machine washable 100 times.


3. ABSORPTIVE ABILITY

Once the sweat shields soak up your sweat, our layering system will allow the sweat to evaporate. 99% of customers have success with our shirts. Different undershirts such as ones from Thompson Tee, Hanes and others come up short at securing your sweat since it has no real way to escape as vapor. As one Kleinert’s reviewer stated, “the sewn in pads really absorb sweat and keep me dry and comfortable during the day.”


4. SLEEK DESIGN

One the exciting aspects of our undershirts is in the design of the shirts themselves . We have worked on many different designs over time and part of our patented technology includes the sweat shield design and stitching. Customers like the fit of our undershirts and many say our shirts “feel much neater” than others like Thompson Tee. In reference to the Thompson Tee, another customer noted, “the thickness of Kleinert's undershrits was not uncomfortable or bothersome, like theirs that made me feel like I had pads under my arms". We’ve designed our shirts to be comfortable and convenient so you can concentrate on the important things in life instead of worrying about sweat stains.

5. PRICE

Here’s a breakdown of the cost per shirt by brand:
  • Kleinert’s Men’s Undershirt: $24.99
  • Thompson Tee: $24.99 and $29.99
  • Sweatshield Undershirt: $49.99
  • ADVADRI: $25.99
After 120+ years in the garment industry, our U.S-made shirts at a lower price point than competitors. Our efficient cutting design also minimizes fabric waste, meaning we can purchase less material and pass the cost savings onto customers.

6. DESIGN & POSITION OF THE SWEAT SHIELDS

We designed our underarm barrier shields to use the same sweat shield design on both sides for functional use and practicality. The way they are sewn-in helps in capturing sweat and keeping it there until it evaporates. With the overall body of the shirt using Fabrapel no sweat is shown on the outside and the shields keep sweat in.


7. EXTRA LENGTH

We designed our shirts with extra length to ensure they stay tucked in without bunching. Other undershirts like Thompson Tee and Sweatshield have extra length, but they can be longer than Kleinert's.


8. STYLE OPTIONS

People have varying fit and style preferences when it comes to sweat proof undershirts. So we created crewneck, V-neck and deep V-neck options in two colors and 6 sizes. We offer the largest selection of sweat proof shirts to appeal to every fit and style need. We stand by our products and we're here to help people enjoy their lives. That's why we invested in honing our design and patenting our sweat proof technology. Nothing excites us more than hearing how Kleinert's has changed people's lives for the better.
