But a polyester, cotton and spandex blend is actually more effective for keeping sweat off your skin throughout the day. Look for styles that have a moisture-wicking panel on the sides and under the arms. Wear a size that’s loose enough to allow airflow rather than one that binds at any point. Reducing friction and moisture buildup can reduce skin problems like rashes, body acne, tinea, skin tags and more.
