Whether it's sweltering outside or you're doing an intense sweat-inducing workout, not being able to dry off is, well, gross. I find this is especially true in the latter situation. I hate feeling like I'm drowning in my own dirt and sweat when I'm trying to push or challenge myself. I start to think about the sweat and only the sweat, which does not help my focus at all.
Now, there are a lot of sweat-wicking activewear pieces out there, from leggings to sports bras to tops. But one thing I didn't realize was a total game changer until recently was also making sure that I had on moisture-wicking underwear. You see, not only are you keeping yourself dry, but you're also making sure that your underwear isn't becoming a breeding ground for bacteria. I know—just thinking about it gives me the creeps.
