Sweating is your body’s natural way of keeping you cool in hot temps—but how much perspiration is too much?
If you’re sweating so much that it makes you uncomfortable and affects your social life, schooling, or job, that’s when it should be considered a problem.
Are you embarrassed by those always-expanding sweat stains under in your armpits? If you have these problems, then know you’re not alone. You could be experiencing a medical condition called hyperhidrosis, but even if you don’t have a medical condition, and you just seem to sweat a lot, you can take steps to keep wetness and odor from interfering with your life and clobbering your self-confidence.
Here are a few tips to control excessive sweating:
10. Purchase “breathable” shoes for sweaty feet:
Some footwears have absorbent insoles and also let moisture out through holes in the soles of the shoes. You can also reduce foot sweat by wearing shoes made of leather and other natural materials. Wear sandals or go barefoot when you can so that your feet can breathe.
11. Consider An Alternate Treatment:
If changing your diet, wardrobe, and deodorant won’t cut it, speak to a doctor. There are several prescription meds and other treatments available that can help your sweat problem.
Botox works by blocking the chemical signal from nerves that tells the tiny muscle of sweat glands to open and release sweat.
Botox is the stuff that celebs inject into their faces to smooth out wrinkles. It has been very successful in treating excessive underarm sweat.
However, it is not a permanent solution—results can last up to 6 months. Plus, the injections aren’t always covered by insurance and can be quite costly.
12. Use herbs to combat night sweating:
Mix 3 parts sage and walnut leaves with 2 parts stinging nettle and strawberry leaves. Add 1 cup (250 ml) of steaming water to the mixture and drink it before bedtime.
