The Reason You Sweat After a Shower—and How to Stop It

It's normal to sweat a bit when taking a hot shower—it's the sweat that drips after you towel off that becomes a problem. If you take steaming showers, that hot water will continue to cling to your hair and skin after you turn off the faucet. At certain temperatures, those droplets are just as likely to make you sweat as the water streaming from your showerhead. You may assume that drying off is the solution, but in some cases, your towel can raise your body temperature. Standing in lukewarm-to-cool water for several seconds will wash away any hot water droplets and adjust your body's thermostat.
