Hippi, I mentioned the idea of starting to carry around a cold wet washcloth, and additionally, what I have been doing is keeping a small cardboard fan in my handbag - one that my hubby brought home from the Susan Komen race for the cure. You can find that kind of thing just about anywhere, and just fanning your face can help a lot. I'll be thinking of you the next time the sweat pours off of me in a store :).
