Posted: Updated:

Even though we've found the perfect summer dresses that won't land us in hot water with human resources, rising temps have created another issue: inner thigh sweat.

We become miserable the very second we start to feel our thighs sticking together from all the heat and humidity. Next thing you know, our pretty floral frocks and bright cropped pants are soaked in sweat, creating an embarrassing stain.

If you're fed up with sweaty, moist skin ruining your outfits, try these five methods to stop thigh sweat in its tracks.
