Here are couple of hacks that can be used to conceal your sweaty palms. These are tried and true that can get you through any social situation. It's better to use these hacks than to continue to be judged by having either a limp handshake or exposing your sweaty palm issue to the masses. Besides your personal business isn't everybody's business.
If you are networking and will shake many hands throughout the evening, do this:
- Wear something with pockets - either a blazer, a skirt or slacks and place a handkerchief in your right pocket. Since you always shake with your right hand, simply place your hand in your pocket and squeeze the handkerchief. By squeezing the handkerchief the perspiration will be absorbed and you can inconspicuously dry your hand throughout the evening.
- If you are seated in a meeting or a conference, you can still inconspicuously dry your sweaty palms. You can place your handkerchief in your lap and squeeze your handkerchief when necessary.
If you have sweaty palms it would be best to invest in monogrammed or a fashionable set of handkerchiefs just in case they become visible.
