For me, one of the most embarrassing aspects of dancing is ... you guessed it. Sweat. The harder I dance, the more profusely I sweat. I haven't been able to find anythig that helps,really, even though I use antiperspirant.

Anybody else dripping with sweat by the end of a lesson/dance/practice?  Any thoughts on how to manage the problem?

I have heard there are products out there and I think you might find it listed somewhere on this site about a product used by the theatre industry regarding sweating. but I use mac makeup and that works really well.

I also heard of an eletronic device - they claimed that a small current through the skin would inhibit sweat production.

Makes me sweat to think of it Shocked Grin

lol.


Sounds like I'm stuck in the stone age. I still use the old multiple t-shirt technique, at least for lessons and workshops.  Layer so that the outside clothes do't get too clammy, and stash a few extra dance shirts in my bag, in case I need to change.

True. Being in a cold, cold studio does help ... some, at least.

My somewhat embarrassing problem is that I sweat in some unusual places (under the boobs,down the middle of my back, etc.)  So I have to remember to apply antiperspirant there.  I also wear colors or prints that camouflage  the puddles. lol. 

Has anybody ever tried "clinical strength" or prescription antiperspirants?

have you tried a max stick or vasoline across the brow to try and funnel it away?  I dont perspire that badly but have friends that do, mostly chaps though and they all do what you do with their clothing, layers work very well

It is suppose to divert the sweat away from your eyes depending on how you apply it. so if you wipe it across the top of your brow and follow the contours then it will either funnel down over the nose or at the edge of the eye.

I have heard it from others not done it myself.
