Although it’s one of the things your body does to help you detox, all of us despise sweating.. Main reason? The extreme embarrassment and discomfort we face especially in the hottest of summers and special occasions! Excessive sweating is never tolerable in small doses, unbearable when you’re exposed to too much of it. This perspiration guide will help you figure out how you can handle, stop, and embrace your own sweaty situations. Beat the sweat threat with CIIN’s top 10 tips!
1 || Wear Breathable Fabrics
Wearing thin layers of 100 percent cotton helps reduce sweating. If you’re hitting the gym then try on organic cotton workout gear.
2 || Take A Long, Deep Breath
Breathing slowly through your nose relaxes the nervous system and reduces excess sweating. If that doesn’t work, some stress busters that can help you stay cool and dry, like meditation.
3 || Use An Antiperspirant Deodorant
This will block pores, preventing sweat from mixing with bacteria on the skin, which creates odor. Opt for one labeled “clinical strength,” like Secret Clinical Strength , if you have excessive sweat—it contains the highest amount of aluminum chloride available sans Rx.
4 || A Prescription Version Of Deoderant
One like Drysol has 20 percent more aluminum chloride than over-the-counter options.
5 || Use Dress Shields
Place a stick-on dress shield in the underarm of a dress or blouse to avoid the telltale dark circles.
6 || Watch Your Diet
Have a big interview coming up? Skip the chicken vindaloo the night before. Garlic, onions, and curry all can come out through sweat. We’re a hyperclean society — people take two and three showers a day, but still eat fast food and drink Diet Cokes and that affects the odor that comes out during a heavy sweating session.
7 || Downsize Your Vices
Carrying extra weight, smoking, and drinking alcohol or caffeine can all increase sweat as well, according to mayoclinic..
8 || Botox Injections
Those will temporarily immobilize the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. Each treatment lasts six to 12 months.
9 || Change Footwear Often
If sweaty feet are a particular problem, be sure to change your shoes and socks often. Antiperspirants can be used on other parts of your body besides your armpits. An aerosol antiperspirant can be a great solution for sweaty feet as long as you’re sure to spray not just the soles of your feet but also between your toes.
10 || Lose Weight
If you’re overweight or obese, losing weight will help reduce the amount of sweating that you experience because the heavier you are, the more you’ll sweat because it’s harder it is to cool down efficiently. Go ahead and sweat like a pig to look like a fox!
