Sweating is embarrassing — it stains clothes, ruins romance, and messes up social interactions. Some people have a serious problem with sweating year round (hyperhidrosis), but most face it more during the hot and humid months. And as there’s really no effective way to measure the total amount of sweat, excessive sweating is simply defined as an amount that causes problems.
Here are a few tips for sweating less in summers :
- Apply antiperspirant on your underarms the night before for maximum effect.
- Avoid foods that trigger sweat like spicy foods, alcohol, and coffee to name a few.
- Wear loose fitting clothing made of cotton/linen, or high tech synthetic fabric that remove moisture away from your skin.
- Drink sage tea and tomato juice regular, with known as natural remedies to curb excessive sweating.
- Shave your underarms, which reduces moisture build up and allows for more air to reach skin and evaporate sweat.
- Apply witch hazel on underarms, face, palms, feet and other areas where you excessively sweat.
- Stay hydrated, this keeps your body temperature cool and reduce its need to produce sweat.
- Lose excess body weight and stay in shape. Excess body mass = more sweat the body needs to produce to cool itself down.
- Practice relaxation techniques, as stress is also a major trigger for extra sweating.
- If you still get super sweaty, please visit your physician for check up and treatment.
