Sweat gets a bad rap. We blame it for stink. We accuse it of staining our clothes, and we react in disgust when it appears. But in actuality, sweat is pretty darn awesome and an essential part of being human. No, really. Sweating can be messy (and smelly), but it’s also your body’s natural cooling mechanism.
We love sweating. All the best things in life make you sweaty, and it’s so good for you in so many ways. Sweating is actually a really complex bodily function that helps keep your body temperature regulated and keep you healthy. Who would’ve thought!?

Sweat cops a lot of flack. But do you really know the ins and outs of your body? Sweat is essential in the running of your body to ensure you don’t overheat, keeps your skin moisturised and fights off infections by keeping your immune system strong. It’s a clever bodily function that we think deserves a whole lot more lovin’.
