How to regulate excessive sweating?

Sweating is a normal phenomenon. Our body needs it to regulate the internal temperature of our body. It is when it becomes excessive that it poses a problem since it can handicap us on a daily basis. Here are some tips for regulating excessive sweating.

Good personal hygiene

Perspiration itself is odorless, it is in contact with bacteria present on our skin that it emits an odor. To remedy this, impeccable personal hygiene is necessary. If you suffer from excessive sweating, it would be ideal to take a shower morning and evening. When you wash yourself, prefer the washcloth or the soapy towel, more effective than your hand. Remember to dry yourself off properly, especially in the folds and between the toes. Once a week, also get into the habit of waxing, as perspiration tends to clump together in the hairs.

Adapted clothing

When you suffer from excessive sweating, it is best to avoid wearing synthetic fiber clothing. Instead, opt for clothes made from natural fabrics like linen, wool or even cotton. It is also not advisable to wear clothes that are too tight or too close to the body because they promote perspiration. Loose clothing will help your skin breathe easier. As for the color, choose light shades that do not absorb too much heat from the sun. When your feet are confined to your shoes, they tend to sweat more. For this reason, it is advisable to stay barefoot as often as possible. If you are forced to wear closed shoes, consider dusting your feet with baby powder to limit sweating.Also be sure to change socks every day.

Natural products

Alcoholic drinks, tobacco, caffeine, but also spices, garlic and onion should be avoided if you suffer from excessive sweating. These products tend to accentuate odors.

Rubbing your armpits with slices of lemon or cucumber has the effect of tightening the pores and thus helps to limit sweat. But it takes a few days for this remedy to manifest its effects. Aloe vera and baking soda also help limit sweating. Thanks to its astringent properties, aloe vera tightens pores while limiting bad odors.
