5. D.I.Y. DANCE ALL NIGHT BUT AVOID BEING SWEATY: Easy way to minimize underarm sweat. Whether you're working with a prescription-strength antiperspirant OR an over the counter clinical strength option apply it to your underarms and then cut plastic wrap to fit the area and pull on a snug tee. After sleeping this way for a few nights, you'll find your perspiration is so under control you can then go several days without any at all! Got sweaty hands or feet? Do the same thing there--apply plain-old underarm antiperspirant, wrap some Saran Wrap around, and then pull on cotton socks.
