Why do we sweat?

Browse → Human Body → Body Works

Sweat is your body’s natural way of cooling down. Most of the time you sweat when the temperature around you is hot or when you’re running around and exercising. – As the sweat comes out of your body, you cool off!

Sweat is made up of mostly water, and different people all sweat different amounts depending on their body and the conditions that are making them sweat. Our sweat comes out of tiny little openings just below our skin that are too small for us to see. These openings are known as sweat glands, and the typical adult has 2-5 million of them!! When sweat reaches the surface of our skin, it then evaporates, which cools us down!
