Sweating is totally natural and healthy — but sometimes, it can be a little embarrassing. As Shape reports, there have been a few recent product innovations to stop sweat spots. Belly Bandit, for example, created liners made of bamboo that can be placed underneath a sports bra to absorb sweat before it shows.

There are other simple hacks to prevent those wet patches: For example, corn starch can easily do the trick. “Because corn starch is so fine, it's super-absorbent and able to pull sweat away from the skin,” Shape explains. All you have to do is dust it on pre-workout.

A good antiperspirant also works like a charm. Shape suggests you go for an invisible stick that will stop wetness without leaving white marks or "being unnecessarily harsh on your skin.”

But, remember: Sweating is totally normal. It’s practically a badge of honor for all of your hard work, so feel free to work hard and sweat on.
