- Sweat glands mature during the first two years of life
- Want to sweat less? Don't overdo the AC; drink cold water
The annoying thing about being a sweaty person — and I am, I am a bit ashamed to admit, a fairly sweaty person — is the way it sneaks up on you. It's never "Oh, the temperature is rising, therefore I am about to get sweaty." Rather, it's always, "How the hell did I get sweaty? It isn't even that hot!" For we sweaty folks, there's a certain helplessness to our condition, and this is right around the time of the year when it manifests itself the most, because the population's distribution of sweatiness seems so randomly, unfairly determined. All around us, we see friends, co-workers, family, and strangers with enviously dry skin. How do they do it? Why can't we be like them?
